Supporters and Champions Info Page

Some have questioned the need for a boycott of those who sabotaged the effort, and have called for a more positive approach.

  1. The Humboldt Growers Association
    was all for Prop 19 as were many others growers in the Emerald Triangle. Please don’t believe the hype that all Humboldt growers were against legalization.

  2. Thanks, as I almost didn’t deserve it. I think Matt Fennel needs to be on this list, I was going to add Joshua Potter, but I see is already rightly there.

  3. Rather than boycotting these businesses, perhaps the proponents of legalization could convene a meeting with these organizations to find out specifically why they voted against Proposition 19.

    Most likely when people vote against something it is because they feel (rightly or wrongly) that they were not consulted in any way and that their voices were not being heard.

    We need to work together. While it may be advisable to understand who voted against Proposition 19, I would suggest using the method that the Founding Fathers used when they wrote the Declaration of Independence. There were dissenters in that group who probably wanted to realign back with England and yet all agreed to delegate the task of writing the Declaration of Independence to Thomas Jefferson.

  4. I’m honored to have been mentioned and nominate Shannon Lamoureux and Victoria White two out-of-state Legalizers whose honesty, sincerity and sanity grace our Movement, and Donald Emerick of LA who took the issue to the “Vote No on Prop 19” page and called them a bunch of idiots.

  5. Ryan Thompson and most of the members of the group, “Dispensaries, if you don’t support legalization I won’t support you.”

  6. Wow. It’s an honor to be on this list. I don’t know everyone here, but those I have worked with have earned a ton of respect from me. It most certainly helps to have others to work with, it’s rough terrain here in IL. I look forward to meeting those whose path I’ve not crossed yet and will do my best to live up to the Cannabis Warrior title. Onward march!

  7. Hey Mickey, thanks for putting this together and for including me, I feel so undeserving to be in such great company. I didn’t see Pony Boy of Los Marijuanos, Diane Renee’ Fornbacher of NJ NORML, Greta Gaines, Cheryl Shuman, Tommy Chong, George Lopez, and Whoopi Goldberg.

  8. Thank you to all those wonderful supporters of prop 19. As for those stoners and growers who supported continued prohibition: If I can’t say anything nice I won’t say it, so I have nothing to say to you.
