And here is a note from our friends at the ACLU regarding the scare tactics being used against Prop. 19:

Don’t be fooled by the misinformation spreading in the media that legalizing marijuana would throw California into conflict with federal law. California has the authority and the autonomy to craft its own drug laws and to decide what conduct to criminalize, or not, under state law.

Currently, 95% of all marijuana arrests are made by state and local law enforcement, not by federal agents. While it is true that the federal government can decide to vigorously enforce federal laws against marijuana, it would be bad policy to do so. California has the opportunity to stop using our scarce state resources to criminalize marijuana.

Proposition 19 is the initiative that would make it legal under state law for any adult 21+ to have a small amount of marijuana for personal use. If you believe in smarter drug policy, get involved before Tuesday’s election.

The last four days of the campaign will be the most critical for reminding people to vote and making sure we get a big enough turnout to win! Check out the ways you can help to the right. For more information, email our Field Team and check out our ACLU/SC Twitter stream Monday for details on our #prop19 Twitter-only contest.

A YES vote on Prop 19 would help fix the broken system of racial disparities in marijuana law enforcement. Young men of color are far more likely than young white men, for example, to be arrested for having small amounts of marijuana, even though usage rates are the same. That’s not fair. Voting Yes on Prop 19 also means that police could focus their scare resources on preventing and solving serious crimes.

Election Day is less than one week away. Our momentum won’t be stopped; vote YES on Prop 19!

Thank you,

Your ACLU/SC Take Action Team
