Attorney General Holder’s promise to escalate enforcement of the marijuana laws if Proposition 19 passes is leading the country in the wrong direction. The marijuana laws will have no legitimacy if a majority of Californians vote to legalize marijuana. The U.S. needs law enforcement leadership toward a sensible marijuana policy, not more of the failed marijuana policy.

Criminal laws against marijuana are a bankrupt, failed approach that does more harm than good. Polls in California and nationally show the people get it. But, the politicians do not. They keep urging more marijuana enforcement. The experts get it and have been telling the politicians for years — end marijuana prohibition. Now it is time for the people to send a clear message by voting Yes on California’s Proposition 19.

Last week all U.S. DEA heads since 1973 came out against Prop. 19 in California. No surprise that the top marijuana warriors want to keep marijuana illegal, but what about their record. They’ve led the arrest of more than 15 million Americans on marijuana charges, yet the war continues. Does their nearly 40 years of successful mass arrests for marijuana mean we should keep doing the same thing over and over again? Or, does their record show a failed policy that needs to be changed?

Smoking pot isn’t activism, but Dragonfly de la Luz, a “professional stoner,” is using her perpetual stonedness to spread misinformation about marijuana legalization with a blog called “Stoners Against Prop 19.” She’s wrong on so many levels and here’s why all California voters should be saying Yes on 19.

SaveCalifornia, the organization that helped bring you Prop. 8, has a new target in its sights: gay pot.
OK. It’s just regular pot. But in the wake of Prop 8′s overruling, SaveCalifornia is putting their homophobic frustrations toward defeating Prop. 19, California’s marijuana legalization initiative.

Opponents of the “Just Say Now” campaign are either lying or don’t know squat about drug policy because during debates against FDL’s Jane Hamsher and SSDP’s Aaron Houston, they claim Mexico and the UK have tried drug legalization.
