Hello All Circulators and Supporters of Initiative #40.
We must keep on track NOW to achieve our goal of more than 89,000 signatures by July 18. If you believe in freedom and that the simple solution, to just stop the courts from fines and sentences for possession of cannabis is the best solution to a felony conviction, make a final effort to finish your petition, even order up another? If your up to it, find a stoner event where your sure to get signatures. Then, please get your own signature notarized on the last page(s) and send to the P.O. on the first page of the petition. Even if you have one signature, please send it in! ML
From interview with DOLORES HUERTA: "When we started organizing the farm workers, people would say, how are you going to organize the workers? They don't speak English. They're not citizens. They don't have any money.
But we would say to the workers, you have power. And they would say, what kind of power do we have? It's in your person. And it is in your person. And you, together with other people, other workers, you can make the difference. But you have to remember that nobody is going to do it for you. If you don't get out there and try to solve your own problems, it's never going to change.
And that same message applies to everyone. Every one of our segments of society that are trying to make positive change or fighting for social justice, this is what we have to do, come together, organize, push back, take that direct action, and then we can make the world a better place. http://www.pbs.org/newshour/bb/social_issues/jan-june12/doloreshuerta_05-30.html
