Barack Obama’s Justice Department is waging a federal war on state-legal medical marijuana clinics in California — even as his campaign wants marijuana ballot initiative supporters to turn out for him in swing states this fall. Mitt Romney says he’ll fight medical marijuana legalization “tooth and nail.” And candidates who most closely represent the opinion of the majority of Americans, like Gary Johnson, are systematically excluded from the debate.
Just Say Now is working hard to make marijuana a campaign issue in 2012. Last week we sent pharmaceutical bottles with pro-medical marijuana messages to protesters in San Francisco who brought them to a demonstration at one of President Obama’s fundraisers, asking him to stop his IRS and DoJ from shutting down clinics like Harborside and Oaksterdam. And this week, after Mitt Romney’s “tooth and nail” comment, we want to make marijuana more popular than Mitt.
