Grateful Dead drummer Bill Kreutzmann has endorsed California’s Proposition 19 to legalize, tax and regulate marijuana.

“I smoke marijuana and I’m not a criminal; please vote YES on 19,” Kreutzmann said.

“Jerry Garcia would have voted Yes on 19,” Kreutzmann added of his former bandmate.

The famed rocker made the endorsement on The California Marijuana Report radio show.

The California Marijuana Report, with former Westwood One news reporter and current screen actor Eric Brenner, broadcasts every Sunday at 6 p.m. on KRXA AM 540 Monterey.

This ground-breaking show focuses on legalizing marijuana in Calfiornia.

“We are strongly promoting YES on Proposition 19,” Brenner said. “We go beyond the headlines and interview elected officials, marijuana law experts as well as profile California residents currently incarcerated or being prosecuted for marijuana offenses. We also showcase celebrities who continue to endorse the right to use this remarkable substance and call for the immediate release of all marijuana prisoners in California.”
