This coming Sat from 5pm to 1am join us with friends to show your

of music, art, video and libations. Come experience a new found
positive vision of an intelligent future. Regardless of political
stance, you are welcome to bring your ideas, inquisitive natures,
creativity and style, not necessarily to support in an individual

reform. Leiber Tea points to Steve Kubby as a man who offers a
channel to this communication and re-education holding a strong
stance for real truth and freedom.

"They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary
safety deserve neither liberty nor safety."
- Benjamin Franklin

In a system and society where categories and labels are necessary to
market and facilitate public understanding, "radical" truths are
often met with fear, ignorance and then refusal to the detriment of
the global masses. We invite you to bypass all stereotypes of art,
science and politics to see through to a new vision of freedom that
has already made its mark. Fearless and willing to enact policy and
effect change against the odds, Steve Kubby, already has proven
himself a survivor and a hero to freedom. With a vast population of
supporters, and growing, he is a living icon who takes it much
further. Your help will allow his voice to give back freedom and let
it grow.

"What I believe, of course, is less important than what YOU believe. I
invite -- indeed, I implore -- you to take a close look at all of the
candidates seeking your support. Examine our positions. Look at our
records. Listen to our debates. Make your decision, and then ACT on
that decision by getting involved. Stand for selection as a delegate
to the national convention in support of the candidate you prefer.
Write a check to the campaign you support. Talk to your friends and
get them involved, too."

- Steve Kubby, Presidential Candidate 2008 -


Steve Kubby is the only 2008 presidential candidate who's played a
key role in passing pro-freedom legislation, then gone to court --
and to jail -- defending that legislation. Since the passage of
Proposition 215 in 1996, twelve states have adopted "compassionate
use" laws to protect patients whose ailments require them to use
medical marijuana.

"Steve Wynn Kubby (born December 28, 1946) is a Libertarian Party
activist who played a key role in the drafting and passage of
California Proposition 215. The proposition was a ballot initiative
to legalize medical marijuana which was approved by voters in 1996.
Kubby himself is well-known as a cancer patient who relies on medical
cannabis. He was a candidate for Governor of California in 1998 and
has declared his candidacy for the Libertarian Party's 2008
presidential nomination." -- Wikipedia

As a founder and director of the American Medical Marijuana
Association, Steve Kubby has continued to fight for Americans' right
to protect their health without facing political persecution. In that
role, he has negotiated with federal regulators, including the
Attorney General of the United States, on behalf of patient rights.

Like some other former, current or likely presidential candidates,
Steve Kubby is a cancer patient. As a matter of fact, he is the
longest-surviving known victim of malignant phenochromocytoma, a rare
form of adrenal cancer with a 100% fatality rate within five years.
Steve has lived with malignant phenochromocytoma for more than 30
years, and his condition remains under control ... thanks to medical

Since his first cancer diagnosis in 1968, Steve has led a National
Geographic expedition up Mt. Shasta, flown jet fighter aircraft at
the US Navy's "Top Gun" school, skied most of the world's most
prominent slopes, conducted exploratory scuba dives in Aruba, Bonaire
and the British Virgin Islands, published the number one ski magazine
in seven countries, and built a successful property management company,

Steve is the author of The Politics of Consciousness (1995) and, with
Ed Rosenthal, Why Marijuana Should Be Legal (1996).
