Gavin Newsom has announced that he will run for California Governor in 2114 if Uncle Moonbeam does not seek re-election.

Newsom, our current Lieutenant Governor, has also recently stated that he nows supports the full legalization of cannabis for recreational use.

As Newsom is quoted as saying in the New York Times, "These laws just don't make sense anymore," "It's time for politicians to come out of the closet on this. It's shocking, from my perspective, the number of people that we all know who are recreational marijuana users," added Newsom. "These are incredibly upstanding citizens: Leaders in our community, and exceptional people. Increasingly, people are willing to share how they use it and not be ashamed of it."

Newsom is considered a near shoe in if he decides to run. With an already cannabis friendly State Attorney General and more California politicians climbing on the bandwagon of legalization a cannabis friendly governor would round things out quite nicely. Now if we could just get rid of Boxer.....

There has also been talk of Kamala Harris running for governor. Either way we win.

TommyMarin commented on Tuesday, Oct 15, 2013 at 13:23 PM

Harris has also been mentioned as a 2016 presidential candidate if Hillary doesn't run. Wouldn't that be something, Harris as president and Newsom as governor?

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.

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.

Vermont Governor Calls For Marijuana Legalization

Vermont Governor Peter Shumlin tells state lawmakers to craft bill to legalize recreational marijuana. Vows to work with legislature and sign bill into law. This would make Vermont the first state to legalize through the legislative process rather than by referendum. Marijuana could be legal as early as this summer.

Cannabis ‘Doesn’t Lower IQ Or School Grades’ – But Smoking Tobacco Does

Previous studies may have been skewed by the fact that teenagers tend to smoke the two together.

Researchers used data on 2235 children – mapping tobacco and cannabis use against IQ at age 15 and educational performance at age 16.

After full adjustment, those who had used cannabis 50 times did not differ from never-users on either IQ or educational performance.

The scientists say that there is a ‘robust’ link between smoking cigarettes and lower achievement in education – even when cannabis is excluded.

Anti-Marijuana Politician Andy Harris At Risk Of Not Being Re-Elected

What could it cost Representative Andy Harris to be Congress’s leading voice against DC’s legalization of marijuana? Perhaps his career in national politics, according to a new poll of primary voters in the conservative Republican’s Maryland district which shows him losing badly to one of his three challengers.

Marijuana grows are destroying Oregon. Marijuana is also being redefined as agriculture in California and we need to stand up to this assault on our environment and on our rural communities. It's an outrage.

"I had a big delusion that I was figuring something out that no one understood but me that would eventually save the world," he said. "The day of my psychosis, I charted everything out and put it on a piece of paper after I had just smoked a ton of weed."

I told you so. Legal marijuana simply provides cover for the cartel. Who is protecting the cartel? George Soros and his many puppet organizations, The Drug Policy Alliance, NORML, MPP, California NAACP, American's for Safe Access, and more. George Soros has made millions of the cartel, with the help of his close personal friend drug kingpin Jaime Gilinski.

"Drug traffickers seek safe haven amid legal marijuana."

..."illegal drug traffickers are growing weed among the state's sanctioned pot warehouses and farms, then covertly shipping it elsewhere and pocketing millions of dollars from the sale, according to law enforcement officials and court records consulted by The Associated Press."

Mendocino National Forest Marijuana Cultivator Sentenced to More than Five Years in Prison

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Pablo Barreto-Cruz, 39, of Mexico, was sentenced today by United States District Judge John A. Mendez to five years and three months in prison and ordered to pay $22,800 in restitution for cultivating marijuana on public land and depredation of public lands and resources, United States Attorney Benjamin B. Wagner announced.

According to court documents, between March 2015 and May 2015, Barreto-Cruz grew 2,998 marijuana plants in the Mendocino National Forest. The marijuana cultivation operation caused significant harm to the habitat and water quality of the National Forest.. Following Barreto-Cruz’s arrest on May 12, 2015, authorities searched the marijuana cultivation site and discovered approximately 1,000 pounds of irrigation pipe, approximately 1,000 pounds of camp debris, and several fertilizers and pesticides, including the highly toxic pesticide Carbofuran, which is dangerous to both humans and animals. The U.S. Forest Service estimates that the marijuana cultivation site diverted approximately 18,000 gallons of water per day.

This case was the product of an investigation by the United States Forest Service, the Glenn County Sheriff’s Office and the California Department of Fish and Wildlife. Assistant United States Attorney Christiaan Highsmith prosecuted the case.
