Left-Right 'Coalition To Legalize Pot' 


A  transpartisan coalition of prosecutors, judges, cops, students, bloggers and political operatives on both sides
of the aisle launched a campaign Tuesday to bring an end to marijuana prohibition, focusing on ballot initiatives
in 2010 and 2012. The campaign, "Just Say Now," gets its name from Nancy Reagan's iconic anti-drug slogan
from the 1980s that has become synonymous with the government's black-and-white approach to drug policy.

"The stars are aligning in a very interesting way with Tea Party activists, who are generally libertarian,"
said Aaron Houston, head of Students for Sensible Drug Policy, on a conference call Tuesday afternoon
announcing the formation of the coalition. "On the right and left it's a very popular issue."

The campaign will be backing marijuana initiatives in 2010 in Arizona, Oregon, California, Colorado
and South Dakota. The group will back initiatives in Nevada and elsewhere in 2012.

Who would've thought that the one issue that would bring together the Right and the Left would be
the common sense idea that putting people in cages for possessing God's flowers is a damn stupid idea.

Maybe if the Right got into pot, they'd forget why they hate Blacks, Mexicans, gays, the poor, etc.
