It’s got to be tough being against marijuana legalization these days. The last ten national polls in a row have shown majority support for legalization. Five states may legalize this November, led by California, where Prop 64 is getting 71 percent support in the polls. Majorities consistently agree that marijuana is safer than alcohol. Fear of marijuana use being risky is declining rapidly.
Yet there are still some die-hards out there, desperately fighting against the tide of history to maintain marijuana prohibition. They are sinking millions of dollars into their quixotic campaigns to defeat legalization and medical marijuana initiatives all across the country.
Recently, Kevin Sabet’s Project SAM political action committee secured a $1.3 million donation from one woman named Julie Schauer, a retired millionaire in Pennsylvania.
What motivates Schauer to fight the legalization of pot? Psychotic killers. No, seriously, Schauer, using her Twitter account @InAweOfArt, worries that marijuana legalization will lead to murder and mayhem.
