  • Legalize Marijuana
    Marijuana is the largest cash crop in this and other countries. None of the money is taxed, but if it were it could pay substantially toward the national debt. The billion dollar Drug War violates the 4th amendment of the Bill of Rights. The government has lied about its medical use for nearly 100 years, and they did this with taxpayer money.

  • Decriminalize Marijuana
    The "War on Drugs" has proved to be a tremendous failure. Deadly violent Mexican cartels have taken control of the supplying of marijuana. Even American tourists who weren't trying to procure marijuana have been killed for being at the wrong place. The costs of U.S. enforcement are astronomical while violent crimes are put on the back burner.

  • Identity Theft Protection
    Identity theft is a growing problem for our society. However, in many cases there are no sound provisions in place to protect consumers. Having been victim of Identity theft and being accused of crimes as a result of the identity theft, all of which could have been prevented if the location had a camera or any other measure to identify the thief. This is the thing that sticks out most is that in Georgia check cashing locations are not REQUIRED TO VIDEO OR PHOTOGRAPH individuals making the transaction. Not having these measures in place allows criminals to steal checks and cash them, duplicate an individuals ID card or Driver License and use them, make fraudulent wire transactions and much more and all the while these criminals are going undetected. In the meantime causing many problems in the victims lives financially and many cases criminal with felonious charges because some locations do not have cameras or any other measure to identify individual in questionable transactions.

  • Petition for a New Drug Policy
    This is a petition to Pres. Obama calling on him to initiate a national dialogue on alternatives to the war on drugs. The majority of the public no longer believes we can win the war on drugs and there is widespread support for legalizing marijuana for adult use. We intend to collect as many signatures on the petition as there are nonviolent drug offenders in our nation's prisons - approx. 500,000. We plan to send the petition to the President sometime after the Democratic Party convention and use it to press him to take a position on the need to reform our nation's drug punitive drug policies.

  • The Wrongful Incarceration of David Thorne
    David Thorne was wrongfully incarcerated in January, 2000 after being falsely convicted in the death of Yvonne Layne. He was implicated by a mentally and emotionally impaired man, Joseph Wilkes, after Joe was arrested and threatened by police officers. No evidence led to David Thorne except the coerced statement of Joe Wilkes, who has since recanted. Despite an enormous amount of evidence and numerous statements pointing to David's actual innocence, he remains behind bars. It's time for the truth to be told. We, the undersigned, support David Thorne's efforts to win a new trial in order to prove his innocence.

  • Privatizing jails & prisons
    I oppose SB 2036 and SB 2038, bills being pushed by corporate lobbyists to privatize governmental services and agencies without public input. These bills will compromise public safety, cause unemployment, and hurt communities and small businesses across Florida.
