In a classic example of how targeted political strategy can create a win-win situation for both citizens and government, the city of La Crosse, WI just voted to over ride a city ordinance which now grants the police the discretion of giving out tickets and fines for citizens caught with up to a quarter ounce of marijuana.
Harter had twice before vetoed cannabis decriminalization ordinances with a November 2010 veto falling two votes short of an override.
Council member Chris Olson’s ordinance was created and pushed through by a veto of the Mayor’s original order to ‘give first time offenders a second chance”.
The city of La Cross would rather collect revenue through fees and fines imposed on weed possession instead of spending tons of money prosecuting and imprisoning an other wise law abiding citizen for a non-violent drug offense. The people have spoken.
We are personally and professionally down for the Marijuana Cause and since we know you guys are as well, we’ve decided to become more vocal in the push for Marijuana Reform. In the future you will find stories and prompts asking you to sign on to petitions; or to donate your money or time to volunteer with organizations who could use your help in pushing this social issue to an agreeable solution.
Here’s our chance to disprove all of those stereotypes and misconceptions about who weed smokers actually are. We are everyday people simply trying to live our lives in peace. We are tax paying citizens that have educations, social concerns and political interests. We are a targeted class of people and we have the right to live in a society that addresses our demands.
So let’s show them what we got!
When you see a post that has an “Action Alert” header on it be sure to check it out. Action Alerts headers will be when we ask you, our readers, to show your support by getting behind an advocacy group or an important story simply by reading it, talking about it and hopefully by passing it on to those in your social networks.
Hail Mary Jane promotes a social environment that includes:
- The decriminalization of cannabis and;
- The reclassification of marijuana in order to make it available to doctors for medical use and;
- The option for social rehabilitation and treatment for non-violent drug offenders and;
- The availability of honest, relevant and unbiased research information regarding cannabis
Making a difference makes all the difference…imagine a world where you’re NOT looking over your shoulder!
