THE HOAX OF “MEDICAL MARIJUANA”
The majority of Californians agree: we don’t want marijuana grown or distributed in our communities; nor do we need to earn
tax dollars on the backs of our youth!
In October of 2013, The American Civil Liberties Union of California announced that Lt. Governor Gavin Newsom had convened a blue
ribbon panel to produce a strategy to legalize marijuana outright. Panel members are not “leading legal, academic and policy
experts” , as the ACLU press statement
asserted. Each member of Newsom’s panel is a known marijuana legalization advocate working
to undermine our drug laws and con the public into believing they are drug policy experts. Each profiting off their association
with George Soros.
Let’s take a closer look at panel members.
1. Chair: Gavin Newsom, Lt. Governor of California, outspoken advocate for ‘medical’
marijuana and the legalization of it. Highest ranking elected official in CA on record calling for legalizing marijuana. He has a
history of working to undermine our drug laws and has been associated with pro legalization advocates
for many years. Lt. Governor
Gavin Newsom is using his position to further the agenda of marijuana groups funded by cartel drug money and in return the money is
funding Newsom’s political ambitions. Debra Saunders naively suggested in an op/ed titled "Newsom turns a new leaf on marijuana"
Newsom flip flopped on the subject of marijuana legalization, yet his connection to pro drug advocates go back as far as the 1990’s
campaign contributions prove it. Newsom simply waited for the right time to announce his support. When the Lt. Governor of our state
convenes a panel to legalize a harmful drug, a drug known to cause serious, irreversible harm, we must ensure his political ambitions
end at Lt. Governor. This disturbing effort by Newsom to intentionally and knowingly inflict harm on families, neighborhoods
and communities across this state is one we must not ignore. Lt. Governor Gavin Newsom is violating his oath of office and the constitutional
rights of millions of California residents by his own actions.
There are 17 initiatives on the ballot this year plus a record breaking 224 page voter guide sure to frustrate some and intimidate
others. So we’ll make it easy on you. We researched all 17 propositions and here’s our position on each.
The state of California would sell 9 billion dollars in general obligation bonds for K-12 and Junior Colleges. However,
since 2001 voters have approved 146 billion in state and local bonds. Where did that money go? Voters should remember it takes
two tax dollars to payback every dollar borrowed. It’s a tax payer hook. Vote No on Prop 51.
Proposition 52: Imposes
a fee on private hospitals to cover Medi-Cal fee’s. Prop 52 extends a voter approved statute set to expire in 2018. Prop 52
is being called a bait and switch. Opponents claim the money will go to hospital CEO’s and lobbyists. Prop 52 changes our constitution
without any guarantee our tax money will be spent on healthcare. Vote No on Prop 52.
Proposition 53: Would require voter approval
for any state project costing over 2 billion dollars. Requires full disclosure before we vote on it. It would stop blank checks and
promote transparency in government. Vote yes on Prop 53.
Proposition 54: Prohibits our state legislature from passing any legislation
unless published on the internet 72 hours in advance. Would ensure public meetings are recorded and placed on the internet as well.
Prop 52 promotes transparency in government. Vote yes on Prop 54.
