In a quirky fundraising plea, the main proponent behind the legalizing marijuana proposition on November's ballot today introduced their grassroots fundraising efforts. "Today, I'm asking you to set up a fundraising page and raise $100 or more by April 20 for the Control & Tax Cannabis 2010 campaign," asked Richard Lee in an e-mail. "Just imagine: If 420 people step up to the plate and reach their $100 goal, we will raise $42,000 by April 20. That will go a long way toward educating prospective voters and winning on November 2"

On April 20th, Lee says there will also be house parties across the country.
