The truth about cannabis prohibition – Governor Gary Johnson

Why would I, as a former two-term Republican governor of New Mexico,
speak out so strongly on behalf of California’s Regulate, Control,
and Tax Cannabis Act of 2010?

Because no matter how you look at it, our policy of cannabis
prohibition has failed — and I couldn’t just sit on the sidelines
while Californians have an historic opportunity to lead the nation in
fixing it.

But I’m not just speaking out — I’m putting my money where my mouth
is by contributing to this critical effort today. Will you stand with me?

The results of cannabis prohibition have been disastrous:
* Half of what the U.S. spends on law enforcement — on courts
and on prisons — is drug-related. We spend about $70 billion a year
on victimless crimes.
* We arrest 1.8 million people per year on drug-related crimes.
* Over one hundred million Americans have tried marijuana — yet
we still label them criminals.

These policies need to end. You know it, and I know it. And if the
Control & Tax Cannabis Campaign can reach our ambitious $50,000
online fundraising goal by June 30, we can take a big step toward
changing these disastrous policies.

a generous contribution of $5 or more to the Control & Tax Cannabis
Campaign — and help us reach our goal of raising $50,000 online by June 30!

We’ve got a lot of work to do to show undecided voters that this
initiative is a sensible solution for California.

We need voters to know that, even after cannabis is legalized, it’ll
never be OK to get behind the wheel of a car while under the
influence. We need to tell voters that this initiative will make it
illegal to sell cannabis to minors — just as it is with alcohol. And
we need to assure voters that, based on evidence from Holland,
Portugal, and elsewhere, legalization will likely reduce marijuana
use, both among adults and youths.

But the voters will never know these facts unless we tell them — and
the campaign needs our financial support to get the message out.

join me in supporting this truly historic campaign by contributing $5
or more right now.

I’m proud to stand with you in this movement. With your support, I am
confident that California will vote to move us toward more sensible
marijuana policy in November.
