As marijuana legislation veers closer, the worms are starting to turn towards the scent of power, not pot or people. The latest to show their true colors is RN Lanny Swerdlow, a regional cannabis activist based out of Riverside.
When the carpetbaggers came to California a few years back with the poorly written Prop 19, it was Letitia Peppers, a lawyer herself, that saw through the smoke that arose not from cannabis but manure.
The person who lit up this cannabis scam is again none other than the 420nurses’ premiere pot warrior, Letitia Peppers, the feisty cannabis lawyer that is as no-nonsense as Bernie Sanders.
Recently the Brownie Mary Democratic Club had a party. Lanny Swerdlow founded the Brownie Mary group and has a number of chapters across the state/country. A mister Sam Clauder was the event host, and that’s where the story gets interesting.
Sam H. Clauder II, former San Bernardino political watchdog and finance chairman for the San Bernardino County Democratic Center Committee, was arrested in Texas on February 22, 2016 for transporting marijuana with a street value of $1 million. Mr. Clauder had also, reportedly, paid $50,000 (fifty thousand dollars) to rent the hospitality suite for the event at the Democratic Convention in San Jose.
After he made bail, Mr. Clauder came to California so that he could act as the MC for the Brownie Mary Democratic Clubs’ party on February 27, 2016. So now we have Texas, [Hillary won big but was in need of the old ‘briefcase full of cash’ trick that Richard Nixon used to buy friends and dirty tricks], the Democratic Center Committee, and the cannabis activist group of old-timers, Brownie Mary Democratic Club. And the tie-in, selling out Mary Jane for political power through the California Adult Use of Marijuana Act (AUMA).
Unbeknownst to the BMC’s membership, the February 27, 2016 BMC party turned out to have been set up by Lanny Swerdlow, the founder of BMC and president of its Riverside chapter, as a kick-off and endorsement lovefest for Sean Parker‘s and Dr. Donald Lyman‘s initiative drive, the California Adult Use of Marijuana Act (AUMA).
AUMA appears to be an effort to give total control over all California marijuana and hemp (and all proceeds therefrom) to the Democratic Party, read Hillary Clinton, by creating a slush fund of all proceeds from marijuana — taxes, fines, license fees, etc. — and putting it all into a special fund, controlled by the Governor and whoever he appoints, that will not be available for any program other than the control and regulation of marijuana and hemp.
Under AUMA, should it pass, none of the tax, fines, license fees or any other revenue from marijuana will go into the General Fund, public schools or community colleges, as would otherwise be required by existing law.
That means, of course, that all benefits from legalizing marijuana will go solely to pay for salaries, supplies, pensions, etc. of the political appointees and special police force members (who are already referring to themselves as “The Regulators”) who will tax, control and regulate anyone using or growing marijuana or hemp. These monies will also be used to pay for the drone surveillance and aerial spraying programs that will be used to look for people illicitly continuing to grow marijuana for their own medicinal use, since AUMA is also designed to decimate California medical marijuana patients’ rights under the Compassionate Use Act (Prop. 215).
This explains why California’s Lt. Governor, Gavin Newsom, who plans to become Governor, is in favor of AUMA, and has already set up committees (which do not include poor and disabled medical marijuana patients, only sellouts) to decide on how “legalization” should take place.

A few of the other people who approved of or endorsed AUMA (besides Mr. Clauder) at this kick-off event were Don Duncan of ASA, Lynette Shaw, pot purveyor, Chris Conrad and Mikki Norris (of the West Coast Leaf newspaper), and Lanny Swerdlow, RN, of the Marijuana Anti-Prohibition Project and the BMC. Letitia, who was at this event for MMJrs had this to say:
“In the interests of full and fair disclosure, I should note that Mr. Clauder and Mr. Swerdlow attempted, unsuccessfully, to have me and my anti-AUMA literature removed from the BMC party by screaming, throwing things, and threats of arrests. When that failed, they stole my materials and threw them into the hallway, and then “someone” told the convention center staff to throw them away.” – Letitia
