BROWNIE MARY DEMOCRATIC CLUB MEETING & MIXER
Wednesday, July 13, 2016 - 6:30 - 8:30 pm
At Lounge 847
Above 847 Howard Street,
(between 4th and 5th Streets)
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.
~ from the Bylaws of our Club
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!
