Marijuana prohibitionists break the law

The state campaign watchdog agency will investigate allegations that a Washington, D.C., group failed to properly disclose how it is funding a campaign against Proposition 64, which would legalize recreational use of marijuana in California, according to a letter released Monday.

The Fair Political Practices Commission sent the letter to attorneys for the pro-ballot measure campaign who had filed a complaint that the group SAM (Smart Approaches to Marijuana) Action Inc. was late in disclosing contributions it received and failed to account for spending at least $149,850.

“Failure to act could result in voters being denied critical information in advance of the election,” the Proposition 64 campaign said in its complaint.

Galena West, chief of the FPPC’s enforcement division, wrote that it “will investigate the allegation(s) under the jurisdiction of the commission" and noted that her office has not made any determination on the validity of the allegations.

The national coalition fighting the marijuana initiative includes former Rep. Patrick Kennedy and has said it is raising more than $2 million to fight initiatives in five states this year, including the November ballot measure in California. A spokesman was not immediately available for comment.


Yep,old Patrick Kennedy is heading up SAM. Mr. Drunk Driver Gets Special Treatment From The Cops Kennedy. Nevermind he plows into a school bus while drunk he's a Kennedy. They aren't peons like the rest of us are. They are so high and mighty they will tell you how to live your life.
