Cassandra Moore Flashback

Original post made by Herb Borock, Professorville, on Jun 23, 2011

Cassandra Moore's initiative petition for authorizing marijuana dispensaries in Palo Alto enabled me to flash back to the 1983 City Council campaign when Moore espoused her Libertarian philosophy and accepted $8,000 in campaign contributions from real estate developers to finance a last minute slate mailing for herself and four other candidates that the Palo Alto Weekly editorial of November 9, 1983 (page 22) called "an unfair campaign practice".

I neglected to include in the above post the fact that Cassandra Moore's campaign manager in her 1983 Council campaign was Bill Evers.

This is a terrible idea. Among the unknowns is the extent and duration of impairment on folks using marijuana when driving. Accidents due to people under the influence of marijuana are increasing. This post on Slate documents the facts. Web Link
Much more scientific study is needed.

Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund

For the last 23 years, the Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund has given away more than $4 million to local nonprofits serving children and families. When you make a donation, every dollar is automatically doubled, and 100% of the funds go directly to local programs. It’s a great way to ensure your charitable donations are working at home.
