With Prop 19 trailing slightly in the polls, Snoop Dogg releases an ad in support of the Regulate, Control and Tax Cannabis Act of 2010.
|Hit it Dogg!!!|
In an ad sponsored by the League of Young Voters, Mr. Dogg encouraged people to get out and vote on November 2nd. At the end of the advertisement, he said “and on Prop 19,” he pauses and hits a blunt, “You know how I feel about that.”
If the funds are available to run this ad correctly, this could be a shot in the arm for the trailing ballot initiative.
Polls taken of likely voters could be in error. As I stated before, unlikely voters will be the deciding factor in the passage of Prop 19. These unlikely voters will come from the 18 to 29-year-old age bracket.
The public support of the measure by Snoop Dogg, will have an impact on that demographic.
All rappers and rock stars that support prop 19 should do so publicly. It is their fans who have the most to gain, and the most to lose, when it comes to the issue of legalization. They owe it to the fans. After all, their fans are the reason that they have multi-million dollar homes and private jets.
