A2C2 – The All American Cannabis Club http://a2c2.us San Jose's Best Cannabis Club Mon, 06 Jun 2016 09:28:52 +0000 en-US hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=4.8.1 Dave Hodges to Give Everyone In San Jose Free Marijuana If Measure C Passes http://a2c2.us/2016/06/06/dave-hodges-to-give-everyone-in-san-jos/ http://a2c2.us/2016/06/06/dave-hodges-to-give-everyone-in-san-jos/#respond Mon, 06 Jun 2016 04:20:40 +0000 http://a2c2.us/?p=303

Hodges Vows To Give Away A Quarter Ounce Of Pot To Every San Jose Resident If The Measure Passes

San Jose, CA (June 6th, 2016) – Former Cannabis Club operator Dave Hodges has vowed to give away a quarter ounce (7 grams) of cannabis to every San Jose resident if ballot Measure C passes in tomorrow’s primary election in San Jose. Hodges estimates that could be as much as 3,000 pounds of cannabis.

“The only way the All American Cannabis Club could reopen in San Jose is if voters pass Measure C tomorrow in the San Jose primary election,” said Hodges. “The regulations passed by San Jose officials have cost the city millions of dollars in court cases and lost revenue. In addition, they have created more black market marijuana sales than ever in San Jose history. If Measure C does not pass, I may have to step away from the cannabis industry forever.”

Hodges is the director of the Silicon Valley Cannabis Coalition; the group claims since the passage of the city’s medical marijuana regulations there has been a resurgence in the black market. San Jose’s Measure C would modify San Jose’s current regulations to allow for more access to Medical Marijuana, and allow Medical Marijuana patients under the age of 21 to safely access their medication without buying it off the streets.

The fact is that city regulations make delivering cannabis in San Jose ‘illegal,’ thus making the over 30 San Jose delivery services listed on the popular site WeedMaps.com actually “black market sales” in the city. In addition, traditional drug dealers and people re-selling marijuana bought from the clubs have also been taking advantage of the age limit of 21 set by city regulations.

 

“If a medical cannabis patient under 21 wants to get their medicine in San Jose, the only choice they have is by giving money to an ‘illegal’ operation,” said Hodges. “The city has been losing hundreds of thousands of dollars of tax money on a monthly basis since the regulations went into effect. That represents millions of dollars a month going back into the pockets of drug dealers. Where’s the logic in that?”

The Silicon Valley Cannabis Coalition is urging people to get out and vote tomorrow. Although District Attorney Jeff Rosen is not on the ballot, the group points to the wasted resources in the recent MediLeaf trial as an example of why we need to hold elected officials accountable using the election system.

“We have a problem with public officials in Santa Clara county not following the will of the voters,” said Hodges “Your vote counts! Get out and vote tomorrow. And if Measure C passes tomorrow, I’ll get to do my favorite activity and give away a lot of free weed!”

Who would Hodges Vote for?

San Jose City Council:
District 2 – Sergio Jimenez
District 4 – Lan Diep
District 6 – Peter Allen
District 8 – Josh Barrousse
District 10 – Michael Sodergren

CLOSED BY THE CITY OF SAN JOSE http://a2c2.us/2015/10/19/closed-by-the-city-of-san-jose/ http://a2c2.us/2015/10/19/closed-by-the-city-of-san-jose/#respond Mon, 19 Oct 2015 00:00:05 +0000 http://a2c2.us/?p=301

A2C2 is now closed. The All American Cannabis Club (A2C2) lost its case against the city of San Jose, based on the proximity of a church, and was forced to close 10/19/2015. In the past year San Jose has shut down more than 85% of the storefront cannabis clubs in the city. Dave Hodges, founder of A2C2, has decided to maintain the lease and convert the location to a Headquarters for the 2016 legalization efforts in California.

“It’s unfortunate the city has decided to give money to street drug dealers and limit access for medical marijuana patients,” said Hodges. “With the small number of locations, unlawful age restrictions, and constraints on available products, there is more ‘weed sold on the streets’ in San Jose than ever before.

New Data Shows 64% of California 2014 Voters Ready for Marijuana Legalization Now http://a2c2.us/2013/11/05/new-data-shows-64-of-california-2014-voters-ready-for-marijuana-legalization-now/ http://a2c2.us/2013/11/05/new-data-shows-64-of-california-2014-voters-ready-for-marijuana-legalization-now/#respond Tue, 05 Nov 2013 20:53:17 +0000 http://a2c2.us/?p=278

Americans for Policy Reform (AFPR), the group behind the 2014 California Marijuana Legalization Initiative, the Marijuana Control, Legalization and Revenue Act (MCLR), released an executive summary of their latest survey data showing 64% of California voters want to legalize marijuana in 2014.

Over the past 3 months AFPR has conducted over a dozen Google Consumer Surveys to gauge voter support for legalization in the California 2014 election. The surveys helped decide the name for the Initiative, properly identified several points of concern and confusion among voters as well as other critical issues such as the 18 vs. 21 year old age debate.

In a survey of registered voters in California who plan to vote in the 2014 election, the results show 64.1% in favor of legalizing marijuana in the 2014 election. With nearly two-thirds favoring a proposal to control, legalize and generate revenue from marijuana in 2014, and only 19.5% surveying any opposition at all, California is ready for marijuana legalization. With 16.3% surveyed as undecided, positive acceptance will only increase. These results confirm additional surveys conducted by Pew, Gallup and Tulchin Research showing unprecedented support for marijuana legalization in California and across the nation.

At the recent Drug Policy Alliance Conference, DPA executive director Ethan Nadelmann stated that the world has hit “the tipping point on marijuana,” and that the “[DPA has] been saying wait for 2016, but we seem to be changing our minds.”

Activists in several states are saying they can win now, and AFPR’s data confirms California is ready for 2014. Graham Boyd, counsel to Progressive Insurance founder Peter Lewis, was also quoted at the DPA conference saying, “The main thing is growing public support. I think you can look at the list of 2016 states and argue that any of them could go in 2014. If the public is ready in 2014 and something happens before 2016 and that lift tails off, we may find ourselves saying we missed the wave.”

Marijuana legalization in California has growing support from politicians such as Lt. Governor Gavin Newsom who recently told the Sacramento Bee a measure could be on the ballot in November 2014. Newsom recently wrote, “It is time for California to decriminalize, tax and regulate marijuana and decide who sells it, who can buy it legally, and for how much. When California became the first state to approve medical marijuana, we led the nation on progressive drug policies, and now it is time to lead again.” Newsom, who is not a marijuana user himself, says that the cost of marijuana enforcement is too high and disproportionately affects minorities.

“It’s time to pass and implement these laws now,” states Dave Hodges, proponent of the Marijuana Control, Legalization and Revenue Act (MCLR). “If we do not pass legalization in 2014, California may not see legalized adult-use marijuana until 2018 or later.”

MCLR was created to accomplish what the California legislature and previous initiatives have been unable to achieve: a fair, transparent set of enforceable guidelines that addresses the concerns of citizens, communities, local law enforcement, the courts and federal authorities.

MCLR was drafted using an open source process of advocates and the general public throughout the State; input from all was welcome. All ideas and suggestions were submitted for expert legal and legislative review and formulated into the final language recently filed with the State of California.

“We call on all reform supporters to work together toward legalization in 2014,” said John Lee of AFPR. “We have the language filed, and remain open to working with all others to avoid the problems of 2012.”

AFPR encourages all marijuana reform supporters to contact John Lee at john@afpr.us. More information and the full text of MCLR is located at here

Email To:  San Jose Mayor Reed, the San Jose City Council, and other San Jose City Officials
From: Dave Hodges (founder of A2C2)
Date: Mon, May 6, 2013 at 3:58 PM

Subject: San Jose Cannabis Regulations for 2013

Dear Mayor Reed, Honorable City Council, and Respected City Officials,

For any who don’t know me, my name is Dave Hodges. I am a lifelong SJ resident, and the founder of one of the first collectives in San Jose.

The recent Riverside Supreme court case has empowered the City to regulate medical cannabis. A2C2, the collective I founded has taken a stance that, as is, the San Jose Marijuana Business Tax is illegal. A2C2 and SJCBC are currently exhausting our administrative remedies in preparation for a lawsuit regarding the legality of Measure U.

I am sending this email to you today to make clear that A2C2 is not opposed to “paying taxes”. We are opposed to paying a tax when doing so is “illegal under San Jose law”. If the City implemented a registration or permit process legally allowing Cannabis Clubs, we would be more then willing to pay the current tax, and drop our lawsuit.

Although we are willing to pay the tax, it is important that the correct regulations are implemented to insure doing so will not violate the law or cause another referendum. Attached is a modified version of the San Jose Medical Cannabis Regulations Title 6.88 that would be supported by the community. The attached document was created during the referendum by a group of over 1000 activists and attorneys statewide hoping to help San Jose regulate cannabis.  This ordinance is available in an editable Google document for everyone to review, update, and comment on as they see fit. You can access and view this document at http://bit.ly/sjmc2013

As I have always stated, I am here to help the city in any way I can. Please feel free to contact me anytime.
Best Regards,
Dave Hodges
