Candidate for US Representative MN District 2

Candidate: Paula Overby

Legal Marijuana Now Party Endorsed

Ballot: On the ballot US Representative MN District 2

Paula has worked with minor parties since 2014. Her endorsement speech in 2014 focused on the corporate take over of America.  Since leaving the two-party establishment in 2014 she's focused on political process reform and building a political movement that can successfully challenge the politics of wealth and the incumbency lock of the two major parties. Paula has maintained a consistent track record:, opposing the endless wars that threaten the environmental future of our planet and challenging the corporate profiteering that has severely undermined America's healthcare system.

 

We are told we can’t win, but we are winning. Obtaining major party status with the coalition in 2018 has expanded ballot access and confirmed the influence of early adopters who will continue to expand this movement.  A growing percentage of Americans recognize that two political bureaucracies in Washington are no longer representing the American people.  Paula is proud to represent the Legal Marijuana Now party in our efforts to end another American war: The War on Drugs.

Candidate for US Representative MN District 7

Candidate: Travis "Bull" Johnson

Legal Marijuana Now Party Endorsed

Ballot: On the ballot US Representative MN District 7

Travis “Bull” Johnson served our nation for 20 years in the United States Army. He holds degrees in Human Resources and Animal Science with a Masters in International Relations-Conflict Resolution.

 

But Travis “Bull” Johnson is one of us: a husband to Terri and dad to Christopher, Alexis and Jamee, a hardworking Livestock farmer in NW Minnesota. He understands the challenges facing American families and the erosion of American’s civil liberties. He is compelled to step forward once again in service to our nation.

Here in Western Minnesota, we chafe at unreasonable restrictions that limit liberty, our ability to earn a living and live our lives to the utmost. I want to reduce those restrictions from the federal level. I believe in a limited federal Government only large enough to fulfill the duties assigned to it by the Constitution. The words “shall not be infringed” are pretty plain speaking. For years, the rights granted by the Bill of Rights have been gradually chipped away, especially the 1st, 2nd, 4th, and 10th amendments: I intend to work to rectify that. I will work to defend those who cannot defend themselves, shrink Government, restore civil liberties, and remove restrictions placed on our small businesses. I will never forget who I work for, the people of Minnesota’s 7th Congressional District.

NOW is the time for change, for years hundreds of thousands of people have been charged and prosecuted over marijuana, a plant that from the beginning was used as a tool to incarcerate those that have been the backbone of building America while at the same time being the under privileged, discriminated and misrepresented by this nation that was supposed to be created equally for us all!! Today I place this issue on my back and seek to fight to clear up this lie about marijuana. I hope you will all join me. Let’s Legalize Marijuana Now!!!!

Candidate for Governor & Lieutenant - MN

Candidate: James McCaskel and David Sandbeck

Legal Marijuana Now Party Endorsed

Ballot: On the ballot Minnesota Governor & Lieutenant

By legalizing marijuana responsibly and safely, we would address criminal justice inequities created by our current system. Those states that legalize marijuana see a significant decline in arrests based on race in low-income neighborhoods. Employers should be prohibited from administering marijuana employment tests and previous marijuana convictions should be erased.

Candidate for Attorney General Nebraska

Candidate: Larry Bolinger

Legal Marijuana Now Party Endorsed

Ballot: On the ballot Attorney General Nebraska

“Over the past 20 years, our government has been focused on creating harsher penalties and expanding our correctional facilities,” Bolinger said. “This has created an overpopulation in our correctional facilities with a high recidivism rate. I am the only candidate that is focused on law reform. Now is the time to get that done. If we keep on electing career politicians, we’ll need to add several more correctional facilities. We need more focus on a rehab program, mediation, drug courts, community service, and intense supervision programs. Those programs have been statistically proven to reduce recidivism by as much as 60%. If we continue the same path we could double the prison population within the next 10 years. We need change.”
