I propose that Minnesota NORML either support Farheen big time to get elected for the soon coming special election for the representative position in District 61B or that we put up our own candidate. The subsity she is referring to is available for Green Party candidates. What say we? Grassroots party? Should we flood the field with multiple candidates? We could get people into the democratic and republican primary and run third party candidates if we get enough signatures. Let's all really try to brainstorm on this one. Farheen is an awesome person and is pro cannabis legalization. If we help the campaign of whoever ends up winning the District 61B special election, we will have a huge friend in the House of Reps this upcoming session. It will also be good practice for 2012 when every candidate is up for reelection. We need to have a number of pro-cannabis candidates ready to roll in 2012 and we all need to be ready to help with their campaigns. 2013 is the year that cannabis will be legalized for medical use in Minnesota, we just need to start practicing and working as a solid unit. So... anyways, what should we do with this upcoming special election?

So now that the current representative got elected and there is an open
seat for District 61B.
I am really tired, and I would love someone to step up to the plate. Here
are the people that have campaign committees up:
I know that Nate Blumenshine will also file.
If you are interested in having me run, then donate $50 to my campaign
committee, which I never closed.
Check Neighbors United for Farheen Hakeem 3315 Elliot Ave. S. Minneapolis,
I do have the advantage of name recognition and having door knock the area
once in the last few weeks. Any day now the writ from the Governor's
office will be written and you need 500 signatures.
Also, you need to raise $1500 to get the $2800 public subsidy. That is
enough to do one mailing to half of the voters in the district.
