Biography

California Superior Court Judge Jim Gray hinted a speech in late 2002 to the California LP Convention that he was considering running for President in 2004. Gray is a staunch advocate for drug legalization -- and has written numerous articles and a book on why he believes the "War on Drugs" is a total failure. Gray was appointed to the Santa Ana Municipal Court in 1983 by Governor George Deukmejian (R-CA). In 1989, Deukmejian elevated Gray to the Superior Court -- the highest level trial court in the California -- where Gray still presides today. As a judge, Gray has tried innovative approaches (like having teens "try" teens for certain crimes, and making drunk drivers listen to stories told by various drunk driving victims). Gray is a former Peace Corps volunteer, a decorated Vietnam War veteran, and a former federal prosecutor. If Gray runs for President, he said that the focus of his campaign would be on ending the so-called Drug War.
