BROWNIE MARY DEMOCRATIC CLUB MEETING & MIXER
Wednesday, May 11, 2016 - 6:30 - 8:30 pm
(Normally Meetings are 2nd
Thursday of Each Month.)
847 Howard Street, San Francisco
The April meeting was cancelled
by the Green Door, so we did not elect new officers.
This will carry over now to
the May meeting, and we will also be voting on endorsements for
the June Primary, which takes place on June 7th.
REMEMBER, ONLY BMDC CANDIDATES
IN GOOD STANDING ARE ALLOWED TO VOTE FOR OFFICERS AND ENDORSEMENTS.
It is time to renew your membership. Please remember to bring
your $20 check or cash to the meeting, or mail it to: 926 Powell
Street #31, San Francisco, CA 94108. We need your participation
and support to continue!
Actually, after emailing every
local candidate -- NEARLY 80 EMAILS -- we have had a very disappointing
response. We are the only club making cannabis friendly endorsements!
Our supporters count on the BMDC.
If you know any of the local
candidates, please encourage them to respond to our 2016 candidate
questionnaire (Download PDF). You can also send emails and
questionnaires to the local candidates, which are listed on the
Department of Elections link (see below).

for new ideas, and we welcome lively discussions and feedback
at the meetings.

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!
