Election season is upon us – what does that mean for legalization and Texas? Thankfully the Texas chapter of NORML (National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws – we’re all on the same page here, right?) has distributed an official “Voter’s Guide” to give you the skinny on where all our candidates really stand on all green-related issues.
NORML explains that Texas (and over 20 other states, too) can’t petition to get something on the ballot for a vote that will affect state laws. In Texas, all drug laws ARE state laws. So, we have to rely on our state-elected officials (specifically State Representatives and State Senators) to be our voices for legalization. And that’s why we need to VOTE in our state election!
So, Texas NORML asked all candidates three questions and published their answers. Not all candidates responded, of course, but NORML included an addendum with previously-stated views of non-respondents.
But – YOU CAN’T VOTE WITHOUT REGISTERING! Don’t forget to register by the deadline of October 6. For specific information about how to register, check out www.vote411.org.
And remember – EARLY VOTING IS OCTOBER 20th to 31st. ELECTION DAY IS NOVEMBER 4th, 7am to 7pm.
Let’s get cannabis friendly candidates elected!
What do you think about Charlo Greene?
This week was the first we had ever heard of Alaskan news reporter Charlo Greene, but she’s certainly making a name for herself now! After she announced “fuck it, I quit” in her recent news report about an Alaskan cannabis club, also indicating her plans to support legalization efforts in the state full-time, she’s been all over the news.
First, of course, came the questions about why she quit. She has shared some things about her home state that we didn’t realize – for instance, that Alaska has a huge drinking problem. Apparently in school, Greene found herself headed in a dangerous direction with alcohol and said she “knew that alcohol, as a vice, wasn’t going to allow [her] to become the person [she] was meant to be.” A mature realization, honestly. After that, cannabis became her vice of preference. She said, “I went from failing an entire semester, to the next semester, and every semester after that, being on the Dean’s List. I graduated cum laude…and that’s because I was smoking weed!” You go, girl.
So, we feel pretty good about all of that. Thank you, Charlo Greene, for being a responsible positive voice in favor of legalization. Thank you for proving that pot smoking can be just one activity in the grand scheme of a person’s life – a person who also happens to be a functioning member of society and positive force in the world.
But then…then come the TMZ reports that Greene got her neighbor’s 4-year old daughter sick from all of the marijuana smoke seeping into their downstairs apartment. When he approached her about this, he claims she told him to “watch his back.” This neighbor went so far as to take out a restraining order against her…that’s apparently how bad their bickering got. Greene is also under a lot of fire for how she chose to quit her job. Cursing and walking away from a job on air – is that the way to go? Or, is it worth it, especially given the negative influence of the media on not just cannabis but almost every aspect of our lives?
Let’s hear from you. What do you think of Charlo Greene and her recent antics?
