Several candidates running for Supervisor, Community College Board and Board of Education will be present to answer your questions and present their platforms. In addition, we will be voting to amend our by-laws to permit our club to take positions on ballot propositions and other issues, in addition to endorsing candidates. If approved, we will then be considering whether to endorse AUMA, the initiative for cannabis law reform on the November ballot. It is now being called Proposition 64.

As always, you are welcome to bring drinks and treats to share.

BMDC is an open forum for new ideas, and we welcome lively discussions and feedback at the meetings.
If you wish to be a speaker, please contact us to go on schedule.

The purpose of this club shall be to advocate for the advancement of the medical use of cannabis and to advocate for the legalization of cannabis and an end to the War on Drugs. The club will seek to increase participation in the Democratic Party by medical marijuana and law reform advocates thereby providing a constructive role for them in Democratic politics as well as contributing to Party leadership and responsibility; promoting harmony within the Party; supporting the Party platform, and assisting in the selection of Democratic candidates.

As many of you are aware, the State of California is at a crossroads in the development of its future marijuana policies, both medical and recreational, and although polls have shown strong public support for the reform of cannabis laws, there remains a very limited amount of grassroots community participation in the process. Therefore, the time is now to organize politically in order to help shepherd in a new era of rational & innovative cannabis policies in our great State of California.

Locally there is a void in the representation of the pro-medical cannabis & cannabis legalization forces in San Francisco city government. Jennifer Nicoletto, Penny deVries, and I undertook the effort to create the Brownie Mary Democratic club to address these issues directly and to galvanize supporters of cannabis locally and throughout the State.

These are the early days for our new chapter. Your willingness to join and participation in furthering the club's agenda is extremely important as progress will only be made through a collective effort. Thank you for your participation and support!

"Each of the great social achievements of recent decades has come about, not because of government proclamations, but because people organized, made demands, and made it good politics for governments to respond. It is the political will of the people that makes and sustains the political will of governments." - James Grant, UNICEF
