    Yes On Prop. 19 Campaign Releases TV Advertisement
    Mon, 25 Oct 2010 21:29:59 By: Paul Armentano, NORML Deputy Director
    Share This Article The campaign to pass Proposition 19, the California ballot measure to legalize the private adult use and cultivation of cannabis, released a television ad today featuring former San Jose police chief Joseph McNamara, who makes a strong public safety case for ending the current prohibition laws.

    Says McNamara in the ad (view below):”Let’s be honest: The war against marijuana has failed. I know from 35 years in law enforcement. Today, it’s easier for a teenager to buy pot than beer. Proposition 19 will tax and control marijuana just like alcohol. It will generate billions of dollars for local communities, allow police to focus on violent crimes, and put drug cartels out of business. Join me and many others in law enforcement. Vote YES on Proposition 19!”

    McNamara served as San Jose’s chief of police for 15 years.

    The ad begins airing on televisions stations throughout California, with a specific emphasis on southern California, tomorrow. :clap2:
