Press Release:

Los Angeles, CA - December 6th 2011 - Coalition for a Drug Free California (CDFC) reported last month that California State Attorney General, Kamala Harris has been meeting with pro-marijuana organizations, seeking their advice and input on soon-to-be-released guidelines tying the hands of California law enforcement officers from shutting down pot stores.

Her office has consistently refused to meet with anti-drug coalitions.

CDFC submitted a formal Public Records Request, which by law, requires public agencies to release information.(You can read the California Public Records Act by clicking here)

Specifically, we asked for "records showing the dates and times that Kamala Harris, and/or any of her staff met with pro-marijuana groups to include marijuana dispensary groups, marijuana attorneys, marijuana lobby groups, Drug Policy Alliance, NORML, and other similar groups,etc, to include the names of the groups, the names of the persons from the AG office and the names of the individuals they met with."

Harris's office initially delayed beyond the 10-day response deadline requesting additional time to review the request.

A letter received this week, dated, November 22nd, denied our request for the public records You can download a copy of the denial by clicking here.

CDFC is highly concerned and believe the State Attorney General is violating the Public Records Act. The CDFC request simply wanted to confirm what our sources have told us - that the Attorney General was, indeed meeting often with pro-marijuana groups, to help with the formulation of soon-to-be-released- pot-store enforcement guidelines.

Sources have told CDFC that Kamala Harris's staff have used state-offices, including those within the Bureau of Narcotic Enforcement to meet with pro-marijuana lobby organizations.

Before Harris was elected as California's top-cop, she was the District Attorney in San Francisco. During her tenure, she penned an editorial favoring marijuana, stating, "...We will not prosecute people who use or sell marijuana for medicinal purposes...I formed, and have been meeting with, a medical marijuana advisory group – a group of leaders from the medical marijuana community whom I have asked to advise me and to discuss community impacts." Read the entire editorial by clicking here

Dr. Paul Chabot, Founder of the Coalition for a Drug Free California stated, "We are very concerned to learn that the State's 'Top Cop' - the Attorney General, is refusing to release basic public records, in accordance with the law. It appears she is indeed secretly meeting with drug legalization advocates and shunning parents, youth, teachers and law enforcement."

A link between Harris and pro-drug organizational money supporting her run in 2010 for State Attorney General is of great concern. "I am outraged that Attorney General Kamala Harris has refused our public records request for information on her association with the pro drug lobby, including individuals and organizations that are working to legalize marijuana outright. Her refusal to answer questions surrounding the use of state offices, including those within the Bureau of Narcotic Enforcement to meet with pro pot advocates is absolutely unacceptable." said Linda Taylor with the Coalition for a Drug Free California. "My research has confirmed a link between her campaign contributions and the pro marijuana lobby!"

CDFC is requesting assistance from the media and the public. Her office's pro-marijuana stance will harm California's communities and youth.

****Breaking - State Attorney General's Office is significantly reducing the size of the California Bureau of Narcotic Enforcement effective January 1st.****

How 'bout that Traylor? We've got one of our own for Cali's top cop. WHOO HOO! What do you want to bet Uncle Moonbeam is still a midnight toker? How much of a hindrance do you think they'll be when we put the "Regulate Marijuana Like Wine' Initiative on 2012's ballot? Hey, maybe we can get them to endorse it!

Breaking news...We received information that Attorney General Kamala Harris had been meeting with pro pot advocates using offices that belong to the Bureau of Narcotic Enforcement in developing soon-to-be-released guidelines tying the hands of law enforcement from shutting down pot dispensaries. Coaltion Drug Free California officially requested public records on who she met with and when. She denied our public records request.

Attorney General Kamala Harris has now withdrawn her marijuana guidelines.

Another victory for us!

If you want to help the general public, go after the legal drugs. Alcohol and tobacco kill tens of thousands of Americans each year. Pot doesn't kill anybody.

What amazes me is how antything like the cut and paste artist of this piece
of propaganda can treat it's own body like a toxic waste dump
and still feel it should be able to decree how others treat
their own bodies. Check out the video the following link takes
you to too see what I mean. It obviously has no respect for
itself yet insists on trying to impose its will on humanity.
It appears at the 19 sec mark and again at the 2:05 mark.Can
you spell H-Y-P-O-C-R-I-T-E? obviously it can't,
but I'd be willing to bet it can spell S-U-P-E-R S-I-Z-E M-E!

To Kamala Harris:

Happy New Year! *Smiles*

This is the start of a long and profitable relationship between anti drug advocates and pro druggies. You can expect more of the same. Got ya.

Anti-pot racketeering suit settles, opens door for future RICO claims. Colorado drug-law expert: RICO claims are 'going to be incredibly problematic for the industry'...

"A high-profile racketeering lawsuit against a proposed Summit County marijuana shop and companies that did its banking, bonding and accounting settled in U.S. District Court this month — a substantial victory for cannabis opponents hoping to stun legalization efforts in America."

Vermont's Attorney General Bill Sorrell Predicts Legislature Will Legalize Marijuana In 2016

"Let me put it this way, I will be surprised if marijuana is not legalized in this next legislative session," he said. There are enough votes for legislation to pass in the Senate, he says, and outgoing Gov. Peter Shumlin has said he would sign a bill.

Hey Kamala Harris...can you hear us now?

Think legalizing marijuana reduces alcohol and other drug use? Wrong! The 2013-2014 NSDUH survey results reveal that Colorado is in the top quintile for the following drug use rates (ages 12 and older): Cocaine, Illicit drugs besides marijuana, Marijuana, Alcohol and Binge drinking. Looks like marijuana legalization may increase alcohol and drug use. Don't buy the marijuana lie.

Colorado: 55% Of Voters Still Support Marijuana Legalization

Marijuana opponents like Kevin Sabet were very certain that Colorado voters would regret voting for marijuana legalization in 2012. Three years later, there is no buyer’s remorse in Colorado. In fact, the same percentage of voters that approved marijuana legalization in Colorado on Election Day 2012 stated that they still support it according to a poll recently released by Quinnipiac University. Per 9News:

Fifty-five percent of Colorado voters say they support the voter-passed law that legalized marijuana in the state, while 41 percent are opposed. And 53 percent said they believe that legalizing marijuana has been good for the state.

There’s a large gender gap when it comes to marijuana approval rates. Men are higher in the votes while woman are divided on the issue. Forty-five percent are saying it’s a good thing, and 47 percent believe marijuana is negatively affecting the state.

55.32% of Colorado voters voted ‘yes’ on Election Day 2012 for Amendment 64. I don’t expect Kevin Sabet to change his tune after the release of these poll results. However, I do expect him to look even dumber than usual if/when he continues to act like marijuana legalization in Colorado hasn’t worked. Colorado’s citizens have spoken, again, and they have expressed that they like their decision to legalize marijuana. I expect similar results in every other state that follows in Colorado’s footsteps.

Most Colorado Voters Say Legal Marijuana Is A Good Thing

It's been almost two years since Colorado regulated recreational marijuana for sale, and according to a Quinnipiac University poll released on 11/20/2015 a majority of the state's voters support the decision and say its outcome has been good.

Support For Legalizing Marijuana Continues To Grow

According to the most recent Gallup poll (http://tinyurl.com/p675q7t) support for legalizing marijuana is at an all time high. The poll, released on 10/21/2015, shows 58% of Americans favor legalizing marijuana with increases in support in all age groups. With support averaging 56% since 2013 the trend is expected to continue unabated. Once considered political suicide many pols now call for the federal government to abstain from intervening with states efforts to legalize and regulate not only medical marijuana but recreational as well. A growing number even openly endorse outright legalization at the federal level.
