New Marijuana Legalization Documentary To Screen In Seattle

Posted on  August 10, 2012 by  News Admin

  Seattle Hempfest and two Seattle churches will host sneak previews of the new cannabis documentary Legalize It, a "socially conscious" film on Proposition 19, the 2010 campaign to legalize marijuana in California.  Scenes from the film will be shown at Seattle Hempfest on Saturday, August 18 in the afternoon in the Hemposium, followed by a panel discussion with the filmmakers and film participants. Participants include Presidential candidate Governor Gary Johnson, his running mate Judge Jim Gray, Dan Rush (director, National Medical Cannabis & Hemp Division at UFCW) and I-502 "legalization" advocate and celebrity trophy wife Jodie Emery. Pastor Carl Livingston ("Shoestrings and Bootstraps") will present film excerpts at Kingdom Christian Center with the filmmakers in attendance, Sunday, August 19, at 11 a.m. The entire film will screen at Woodinville Unitarian Universalist Church Sunday, August 19, at 6 p.m., followed by a panel discussion with the filmmakers, the film's subjects (including Dan Rush and Amanda Rain), and Betty Taylor, former St. Louis Missouri, chief of police. Representatives from New Approach Washington will be there to answer questions about Initiative 502, a Washington state initiative that legalizes and regulates marijuana for adults and is on the November 2012 general election ballot. That tells me that this "film screening" is actually a gambit to get folks in the room so they can be propagandized about I-502, an execrable piece of legislation which would criminalize driving by most medical marijuana patients, wouldn't allow home cultivation, and leaves possession of more than 40 grams...

NAACP Endorses Oregon Marijuana Legalization Measure

  Measure 80 Replaces Marijuana Prohibition With Common-Sense Regulation The National Association for the Advancement for Colored People (NAACP) Alaska Oregon Washington State-Area Conference (AOWS-AC) has endorsed Oregon Measure 80, the Oregon Cannabis Tax Act and calls on voters who are committed to equality and civil justice to vote for Measure 80 on this November's ballot. "Our nation's long, tragic, failed war on drugs has taken a disproportionate toll on people of color," said NAACP AOWS-AC President Oscar Eason, Jr. "To right the wrongs of the past, we need to end the drug war immediately and replace it with a common-sense approach." "I call on Oregon's business, civic -- and especially its religious - leaders to add their voices to the coalition getting behind Oregon Measure 80," Eason said. In July 2011, NAACP president and CEO Benjamin Todd Jealous delivered an historic resolution calling for an end to the War On Drugs. As Jealous said, "Today the NAACP has taken a major step towards equity, justice and effective law enforcement... These flawed drug policies that have been mostly enforced in African-American communities must be stopped and replaced with evidenced-based practices that address the root causes of drug use and abuse in America." Oregon Measure 80 would regulate the production, distribution and sale of cannabis to adults 21 and older in Oregon, using a similar state-licensing model to the one Oregon currently uses for regulating and taxing liquor. The statute is expected to save law enforcement more than $60 million every...
