Gary Johnson Still in the Race

November 3rd, 2011

Presidential candidate and marijuana supporter Gary Johnson still feels good despite poll numbers.
Gary Johnson Legalize Medical Marijuana
To many Gary Johnson is quickly becoming another Republican also ran, but not if you ask him. Despite being left out of the New Hampshire debate, he feels that he has the momentum. His pro-pot Libertarian views have not been received as well in the GOP as fellow Libertarian Ron Paul. He is currently polling at just one percent, while Paul is around ten. Front runners Bachman and Romney have been consistently around twenty-five percent. Johnson is not deterred. As he put it, “there are 126 candidates on the Republican side of the ticket right now.” While that is a bit of an exaggeration, the numbers will whittle down to Johnson’s benefit. Johnson compares his campaign to his successful campaign for Governor. Less then six months before the Gubernatorial primary, Johnson was polling with only two percent of the vote. Despite this he went on to win not just the primary, but also the election. » Read more: Gary Johnson Still in the Race

Former Candidate for California Governor Targeted by Police

September 27th, 2011

Steve Kubby who ran for Governor of California in 1998 was arrested for possessing medical marijuana. In jail, he nearly died from lack of access to the drug.

Steve Kubby

In the 1960, Steve Kubby was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer called pheochromocytoma. This disease is normally terminal and his doctor Vincent DeQuattro was amazed to find him still alive in 1996, not to mention in good enough condition to run for the Governor’s office. Kubby ran and lost as the Libertarian Party candidate for Governor of California. Following his loss, he went on to craft what would eventually become Proposition 215 that legalized medical marijuana in the state. In 1999, however, he was raided by police. When he was put in prison, he was denied access to medical marijuana. Even this short break from his medication caused a disease he had lived with for forty years to almost kill him.
