Ballot Access Requirements for Political Candidates in KENTUCKY!

Cris Ericson is going to run for
U.S. Congress House of Representatives
in Vermont in 2018,
and for Governor of Vermont in 2018.
Cris Ericson runs for two political offices
in one election season because she is
twice as determined as other candidates
to make marijuana legal.

Then, in 2020, she will move
to a southern state
because she wants to move to
a warmer climate when the
F-35 strike fighter jets,
which U.S. Senator Patrick Leahy (VT)
and U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders (VT)
and U.S. Congressman Peter Welch (VT)
promoted,
and will arrive in 2019
destroying the reasonable
habitability of the state of Vermont
with loud booming jets racing
across the skies from northern
Vermont to southern Vermont
at a rate of 1200 miles per hour
in the little state of Vermont
which is only about 164 miles
north to south (driving from
Newport, VT to Brattleboro, VT)
and about 75 miles wide (driving
from Burlington, Vt to St. Johnsbury, VT).

The F-35 strike fighter jets, which are
dual capable to carry nuclear bombs,
and race across the sky at 1200 miles
per hour, will be crossing back and
forth and up and down the state of
Vermont causing ear pain and screaming
babies all over the state, rattling stores
making products fall off the shelves.

Cris Ericson has spent many years from
2002 to the upcoming 2018 election,
trying to explain to Vermonters that
the Democrats and Republicans are
destroying the reasonable habilitability
and purity of the lakes and streams,
and the 2019 upcoming F-35 strike
fighter jets will be the cherry on top
the whip cream of the ejaculations
of U.S. Senator Patrick Leahy,
U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders and
U.S. Congressman Peter Welch.
These are the guys who have spent
their entire political careers allowing
treated sewage to be dumped into
Lake Champlain from which one-third
(1/3) of Vermonters draw their
drinking water! They are disgusting!!!

Cris Ericson is planning on moving south,
after she runs in the 2018 election in Vermont,
somewhere,
and she is researching states to get on the ballot in 2020.

Now, if you currently live in the state of KENTUCKY,
and you want to help make marijuana legal,
then please join the U.S. Marijuana Party
http://usmjparty.com
and then because the U.S. Marijuana Party
has no official political party status in KENTUCKY yet,
you can get on the ballot in KENTUCKY and
run as an INDEPENDENT political candidate,
and part of your
platform can be
to tell people all about the
U.S. Marijuana Party
and why marijuana
should be legal!

Vermont Senate Approves Bill to Regulate Marijuana for Adult Use and Eliminate Penalties for Home Cultivation

April 21, 2017
Press Release

News State by State: Vermont

[Press Release] MONTPELIER, Vt. — The Vermont Senate approved a bill on Friday that would regulate the production and sale of marijuana and eliminate penalties for personal possession and cultivation by adults 21 and older.

The Senate amended H. 167, an unrelated House-approved bill, to replace it with a revised version of a marijuana regulation bill that passed last year in the Senate and failed in the House. The Senate also amended H. 167 to include the same home cultivation provision that is included in H. 170, a bill that has been making its way through the House. H. 170 would eliminate Vermont’s civil penalty for possessing one ounce or less of marijuana and remove penalties for possession of up to two mature marijuana plants and up to four immature plants. The Senate proposal would allow unlimited small-scale cultivation licenses for producers no larger than 500 sq feet. The marijuana regulation bill that failed in the House last year, S. 241, did not include a home cultivation provision.

The Senate-amended version of H. 167 will receive one final vote before being sent back to the House for consideration.

Most Vermont voters are in favor of the policy changes proposed in H. 167 and H. 170, according to a survey conducted March 20-21 by Public Policy Polling. Fifty-seven percent support allowing adults 21 and older to possess and grow limited amounts of marijuana, and 54% support regulating and taxing marijuana similarly to alcohol. The results are available at https://www.mpp.org/VTpoll.

Statement from Matt Simon, New England political director for the Marijuana Policy Project:
“Most Vermonters think marijuana should be made legal for adults, and they’re looking to lawmakers to come up with a plan. We applaud the Senate for approving a thoughtful alternative to marijuana prohibition that would account for public health and improve public safety. We would love to see the House step up and join the Senate in supporting this sensible reform. If the House isn’t willing to support the Senate’s proposal, it at least needs to support its own Judiciary Committee’s plan and pass H. 170.”

The Vermont Coalition to Regulate Marijuana is a broad coalition of citizens, organizations, and businesses working to end marijuana prohibition in Vermont and replace it with a system in which marijuana is regulated and taxed. For more information, visit http://www.RegulateVermont.org

WHY DOES THE VERMONT STATE LEGISLATURE KEEP STICKING THEIR NOSES UP YOUR BUTT?

“WHY DOES THE VERMONT STATE LEGISLATURE
KEEP STICKING THEIR NOSES UP YOUR BUTT?”
written by
Cris Ericson https://crisericson.wordpress.com

By now, some of you who were in kindergarten
when they first started talking about
making marijuana legal in Vermont,
have now graduated high school,
and they are still just talking.

Talk, talk, talk, talk, talk,
and no action!

But now, you can vote
in the 2018 election!

Vote for Cris Ericson 2018 for Governor
of Vermont and for U.S. Congress!

Cris Ericson
runs for two offices because she is
twice as determined as other candidates
to help make marijuana legal!
And, she has a legal right to be on
the official election ballot for one
state and one federal office in Vermont.

WHY IS THERE NO LEGAL RECREATIONAL
MARIJUANA YET IN VERMONT? WHY? WHY? WHY?

IS VERMONT FULL OF NEW ENGLAND PURITANS
WHO INHERITED THEIR DNA FROM THE ORIGINAL
PURITAN PILGRIMS IN THE 1600s WHO BURNED
PEOPLE AT THE STAKE?

Well, marijuana was legal during the time of
the Pilgrims and the Puritans.
You could smoke a joint
of marijuana perfectly legally back in
the 1600s before they burned you at the
stake for witchcraft or whatever!

Where does the phrase: “they are sticking
their noses up your assholes!”
come from?
That happens when you get arrested for
a mere misdeameanor or anything else,
and they strip search you and spread
your legs and stick their noses up
your orifices looking for contraband.
That would be the time to let loose
with some diarrhea!

The members of the Vermont State Legislature
who want to arrest you for any amount of marijuana
are perverts who want to
enjoy the thoughts of police sticking their
noses up your ass!
They don’t go into peoples’ homes and count
their cans of beer.
They don’t go into peoples’ homes and
count their bottles of wine!
They don’t go into peoples’ homes and
count their bottles of whiskey!

For the Vermont State Legislature to pass a law
making marijuana “legal” while simultaneously
allowing the police to invade your property and
your privacy and conspire to search your stash
of marijuana and count it and weigh it so they
can stick their noses
up your asshole, if you are one gram
or one baby plant over
a certain amount,
is rediculous!

PURITAN PILGRIMS IN THE 1600s WHO BURNED
PEOPLE AT THE STAKE?

Well, marijuana was legal during the time of
the Pilgrims and the Puritans.
You could smoke a joint
of marijuana perfectly legally back in
the 1600s before they burned you at the
stake for witchcraft or whatever!

Where does the phrase: “they are sticking
their noses up your assholes!”
come from?
That happens when you get arrested for
a mere misdeameanor or anything else,
and they strip search you and spread
your legs and stick their noses up
your orifices looking for contraband.
That would be the time to let loose
with some diarrhea!

The members of the Vermont State Legislature
who want to arrest you for any amount of marijuana
are perverts who want to
enjoy the thoughts of police sticking their
noses up your ass!
They don’t go into peoples’ homes and count
their cans of beer.
They don’t go into peoples’ homes and
count their bottles of wine!
They don’t go into peoples’ homes and
count their bottles of whiskey!

For the Vermont State Legislature to pass a law
making marijuana “legal” while simultaneously
allowing the police to invade your property and
your privacy and conspire to search your stash
of marijuana and count it and weigh it so they
can stick their noses
up your asshole, if you are one gram
or one baby plant over
a certain amount,
is rediculous!

CRIS ERICSON ASKS YOU:
Can you imagine what its like
to be born, live your life,
and die while marijuana
is still illegal?

Previously, Denny Lane of the
Grassroots Party in Vermont,
campaigned to legalize marijuana
for many long years,
and he died at age 64.
Marijuana was illegal his
entire life, although he finally
did get a medical marijuana card
before he died, although it was
illegal under federal law.

Cris Ericson will be 66 years
old during the 2018 Election
season, and she has campaigned
TO MAKE MARIJUANA LEGAL
starting in 2002.

Cris Ericson has been on the
official election ballot in Vermont
every two years, 2002, 2004, 2006,
2008, 2010, 2012, 2014, 2016
and she will be on the ballot
in 2018.

Are you going to let her down?
Will she go to her grave
while marijuana is still
illegal under federal law?

By the 2018 Election season,
Cris Ericson will have put
16 years into the marijuana
legalization movement
as a perennial political
candidate, on the official
election ballot every two years,
while being bullied the whole
entire time, being left out
of the absolute majority
of political candidate debates
and candidate forums.

Cris Ericson will work to make marijuana
legal if you elect her in 2018
to the U.S. Congress, or for
Governor of Vermont.

She will not promise you your
freedom,
and then change her mind.

Trust someone,
when it comes to marijuana
legalization,
Cris Ericson is the only
political candidate
you can really trust.

She doesn’t want to fine you.
Fines make marijuana legal for
rich people who can afford to
pay them,
while persecuting and prosecuting
poor people, and jailing them
after 3 fines.

Cris Ericson doesn’t want to
create barriers for disabled people,
because if they are only a
little disabled or temporarily
disabled, they can get medical
marijuana;
but if they are
seriously disabled on permanent
Social Security disability,
or living in federally subsidized
housing,
they could lose their benefits
under federal laws if they
apply for a state medical marijuana
card.

Cris Ericson doesn’t believe
the Police have a license to
practice medicine, and she
believes it is wrong for them
to practice medicine and to
decide who can and who can’t
have a medical marijuana card.

Please vote for Cris Ericson
2018 for U.S. Congress so
she can work to make marijuana
legal under federal laws.
Trust someone, vote for
Cris Ericson 2018.

Cris Ericson is the only
political candidate who
cares so much about making
marijuana legal under both
state and federal laws
that she has run for two
offices in the same
election!

She runs for
two offices because she
cares twice as much as
other candidates!

Cris Ericson knows
that you have to work
towards making marijuana
100% legal by changing
both state and federal laws.

Because the Holy Bible, Old Testament,
says in Genesis: “God gave us every
seed bearing plant”
we should challenge President Donald Trump
to obey God’s words in the Holy Bible,
Old Testament, because he claims to
be a man of God.

Challenge President Donald Trump
to put his faith in God to the test
by making marijuana legal!

Actually, it might cost around $89. a month
for a minimum required two year contract.
Cris Ericson can not afford that for her
