    On the matter of the deaths of sarcasm and parody, if may I direct you attention to Poe’s Law:

    Without a winking smiley or other blatant display of humor, it is impossible to create a parody of Fundamentalism that SOMEONE won’t mistake for the real thing.

    More of this, please, Seriously. This challenges the propaganda face on, as it did during alcohol Prohibition. Gets right in the prohib’s face and throws their garbage back at them. Force them to say – meaning, of course, lie – about how that woman can be ‘bad’ for her choice. Then nail their feet to the floor for their mendacity. The prohibs will only risk sending their most benighted bottom-feeders to answer that one, for fear of the righteous reaming they’ll get…

    And, needless to say, the juxtaposition of the liquor store advertisements are a perfect invitation for prohibs to jam feet in their mouths. A bottle of ketchup is in order; toes cannot possibly taste too good…

    A dispensary is threatening to open in a town in OR even though the city manager refuses to issue a business license,,should last about 30 minutes before the do-right boys show up.

    I got the petition signed and went to Alternet to comment and found us already there.

    Here in Michigan people commonly go up north to campgrounds or wherever for Labor day weekend. I want a everyone to see a billboard that says “Marijuana is safer than alcohol. Have a safe weekend!” on their way up. While floating down a river I’d rather someone pass me a joint than throw a full beer can at me!

    In addition, one study by the U.S. National Highway Transportation Safety Administration shows that drivers with THC in their systems have accident responsibility rates lower than those of drug-free drivers.

    “What law enforcement agencies and insurers do not understand is that driving while high is actually a safe activity,” CEO James Shaffer said

    While I understand the caution that previous generations have towards smoking and driving, understand that it will not be a big deal in the future. Walking to the diag at hash bash I saw someone back into another parked car for obvious reasons, but most of them were simply blasting weed music going around town with no problems the entire day. It’s not a problem and no one who wasn’t born yesterday is going to pretend like it is. Walking among 5000+ other people toking and watching cops do nothing will do that to you.

    Also, I accidentally lablelled my linux disc “ubluntu”. Makes me stop and think about rolling my own distro.

    The woman in the Colorado billboard has a kind of a modern, Norman Rockwell quality to her that lends itself positively to the message. We need more of these visuals.

    Cozy Rockwell-like pictorials of the family gathered round the marijuana bush on Christmas…Thanksgiving day on the marijuana plantation, with cannabis drying over the fireplace…Glowing, peachy young farm girls lounging in charming Dutch towns enjoying a spliff…this is stuff that sells the message.

    Old folks gathered round the vape laughing, singing, partying.

      Someday, maybe…I do feel, however, that inclusion of my fellow elders in the real campaign would go a long way. Get some healthy, successful looking gray hairs in running suits or golf clothes with the exact same copy…would work well particularly in AZ and FL (and in conjunction with that informational tour that was spoken of on this site)
