This past week the Alcohol-Marijuana Equalization Initiative Committee launched the campaign for Amendment 44, which would make marijuana legal for adults under state law if it is approved by Colorado voters this November.

During the next 60 or so days leading up to the election, the campaign will be going to great lengths to 1) educate the voters about the fact that marijuana is safer than alcohol and 2) ensure every possible supporter is registered and aware of the opportunity to vote.

If you support this historic initiative and would like to help make it a success, please make a contribution to the SAFER Voter Education Fund -- which is supporting the campaign -- with your credit card via PayPal.

The campaign is in the process of getting a variety of materials produced, including lighters, buttons, T-shirts, flyers, and yard signs, among others. However, funds are currently VERY low following the petition drive to place Amendment 44 on the ballot, and we really need your help today to make sure the campaign can purchase these items and get them distributed around the state as soon as possible.

Now that the campaign is up and running, we encourage anyone in Colorado interested in volunteering to sign up on our Web site if you have yet to do so already. More importantly, please be sure you're registered to vote and do whatever you can to encourage your friends, family and coworkers to get registered as well. You can simply direct them to .

We also encourage anyone around the country to
contact us if there are any products or services you might be willing to donate to the campaign or provide at a discount.

As I mentioned, the campaign is really low on funds right now and needs any and all help it can get. Thus, I encourage you to
visit our Web site and make a contribution to the SAFER Voter Education Fund today. Or, if you would prefer to make a contribution in the form of a check or money order, please make it payable to SAFER Voter Education Fund (or SVEF) and mail it to SAFER, P.O. Box 40332, Denver, CO 80204.

Finally, we have received a variety of suggestions concerning our Web site, so we are pleased to announce we will be launching a new campaign site that will be up and running in about a week.

On that note, we strongly encourage you to check out our campaign blog, which has really picked up over the past week and will now be updated on a daily basis. In particular, you might be interested in reading our take on the DEA's recent attempts to campaign against our initiative.

Otherwise, we will certainly be keeping you posted on the campaign's progress, and we encourage you to contact us if you have any questions about the campaign or making a contribution.

Thank you again for your support in this historic venture!


I wish they would do that in TX, but they have made it very clear that marijuana is not tolerated in TX, and will never be...
