My name is Dave Wisniewski. I am an Honorably Discharged U.S. Army Combat veteran formally known as Sergeant Wisniewski. Today I am a Cannabis Legalization/Civil Rights Activist speaking out in regards to our stolen freedoms. I took an oath to protect our freedom to come home to an ever more oppressed society holding the largest prison population in the history of mankind. You can bet that I am very livid about the abuse of my people and I cannot stand silent. I must tell the world, I must be heard, cannabis prohibition is a fraud among so many others and we need to protest them all. I am going on a protest tour in the Phoenix Arizona metropolitan area that I am inviting you all to come out and join me for. The way the tour works is simple. I will publicly share my protest schedule and route with a Google map attached on Facebook and an email. The protest schedule will be grouped in 3 or 4 week increments. The route will say where I will be, when I will be there, and how long I will be there for approximately. I will do the same route every week 3 or 4 weeks in a row then the next set of 4 weeks I will have a new set of locations. All you have to do is look at the map and come out. If you missed a protest in the first week on the 3 or 4 week increments then it’s okay because you can come out the next 3 times in the same location. I will be putting out the Protest route Sunday of each week and it will also be on the Calendar at www.saferarizona.com Please follow the tour on facebook as well Phoenix Arizona Cannabis Prohibition Protest Tour! (On Facebook) If you don’t live in Phoenix and want to start something like this locally in AZ let me know and we can make a campaign for your city and we can add your map to our calendar as well. Keep in mind the protest may not all be about cannabis. There are a lot of things we need to be yelling about and if you want to protest a different area of interest we will do that to. In fact I encourage it. The First day of the tour is Monday August 18th. I will be putting out the first route Sunday August 17th Please support the cause. If you have any questions, feedback, advice, suggestions, please don’t hesitate to email me at SaferArizonaDave@Gmail.com Thank you. Safer Arizona
6/17/14 Ariz. group ends '14 effort to legalize marijuana Ryan Van Velzer, The Arizona Republic 10:45 p.m. EDT June 17, 2014 PHOENIX -- Arizona residents won't be toking up in public anytime soon. At least, not legally. Safer Arizona, a cannabis-reform political-action committee, announced it stopped collecting signatures for its 2014 ballot initiative to legalize marijuana last week. The volunteer-driven initiative fell well below the 250,000 signatures necessary to get on the ballot, said Mikel Weisser, executive director for Safer Arizona. "It was around a third of what we were after," Weisser said. "It's not going to be a number that we are rallying behind, it's a benchmark to improve from." The organization lacked the funding and the manpower to collect all the required signatures, he said. All four of the volunteer organizers held day jobs and could work on the legislation only part time. Additionally, the ballot initiative faced pushback from within the pro-marijuana community. The measure, if passed, would have redirected the issuing of marijuana licenses from the Arizona Department of Health Services to a revenue-related department, Weisser said. "There were people in the dispensary industry and the cannabis establishment that liked our vigor and verve, but a lot of people were worried about what we would do for the business model," he said. Safer Arizona isn't throwing in the towel, however. The organization has already begun redirecting the momentum of the signature campaign for a 2016 ballot initiative, one that reflects the needs of the community, he said. Weisser will have his first public meeting for the 2016 initiative with the Yavapai Cannabis Coalition on Wednesday. "One of the things we have is tens of thousands of people who have already signed for us, and hundreds of people who have already volunteered for us and now we will be able to build out of that a much mightier ballot initiative," Weisser said. To do that, Safer Arizona plans to build a united front with the Marijuana Policy Project, the organization that drafted Arizona's medical-marijuana bill, and already has plans to draft a bill similar to the one passed in Colorado. "Over the next couple years we will be building a broad coalition of community activists, local leaders, organizations and businesses that are committed to passing a law that regulates marijuana similarly to alcohol," said Mason Tvert, director of communications for the Marijuana Policy Project. "Our strong network of support in the state will be strengthened even further by joining forces with the dedicated activists behind the 2014 effort. Marijuana prohibition's days are numbered in Arizona," Tvert said.
