The latest polls show Proposition 19 only narrowly ahead. We can do 
better than that.

We can convince the undecided and win the hearts of the disheartened. 
Let's end this
great travesty of justice by passing 19 by an overwhelming margin.

I'm asking supporters everywhere to please help distribute our ad 
content in support of
passage of Proposition 19. Go to for content.

Thank You!

Subj: 003 Engaging Journalists Directly

Hi everyone,
Aside from writing letters to the editor, does anyone on this list have experience engaging journalists directly in order to get them to provide more evidence-based media coverage of drug and prohibition issues?
If so, could you please tell me about some of your experiences? How did you approach them? What types of arguments were most effective? 
Best regards,
Patrick Froehlich
