Presidential Candidate Roseanne Barr Tells Oakland Marijuana Should Be ‘Totally Legal’
Peace and Freedom Party presidential candidate Roseanne Barr speaks at Oaksterdam University
Peace and Freedom Party presidential nominee Roseanne Barr came to Oaksterdam on Thursday evening to distance herself from President Barack Obama and GOP nominee Mitt Romney and their stance against marijuana.
The comedienne and former television star held her town-hall meeting, “The Political Future of Medical Marijuana,” in front a standing-room-only crowd of about 200 at Oaksterdam University. Barr said legalizing marijuana is the “way to end the drug wars and stop the monopoly of the subsidized prison systems.”
Barr, along with vice presidential running mate and anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan, are running a symbolic campaign in that the pair are not on the ballot in enough states to win.
