Kottonmouth Kings & Melissa Etheridge Join The Legalization Efforts For California’s Proposition 19
While Kottonmouth Kings are set to kick-off the second leg of their Party Monsters US Tour beginning on November 13th, the group is currently concentrating their efforts on the upcoming November 2nd, 2010 vote for Proposition 19 in the state of California. Proposition 19, also known as the Regulate, Control and Tax Cannabis Act of 2010, legalizes various marijuana-related activities, allows local governments to regulate, while permitting local governments to impose and collect fees and taxes.
“We are on the verge of a historical legislative breakthrough with Proposition 19. It is not a perfect proposition, but it is a huge progressive step towards common sense drug laws,” commented Brad X from Kottonmouth Kings. “We are releasing a free exclusive track we just recorded called ‘Legalize It’ to celebrate this monumental occasion. It is one more step to ending prohibition."
Kottonmouth Kings' drummer Lou Dog is currently working alongside criminal defense attorney Bruce Margolin at the Los Angeles chapter of NORML (National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws) campaigning for the Prop 19 vote. Lou Dog was recently photographed at a fundraising event in Los Angeles, CA alongside Grammy award winning singer/songwriter Melissa Etheridge for the legalization efforts.
The Kottonmouth Kings will kick off the second leg of their Party Monsters Tour alongside Big B and Slaine on November 13th in Hollywood, CA at The Key Club. Kottonmouth Kings are currently touring in support of their new album, “Long Live The Kings”, which debuted at #26 on the Billboard Top 200.
