Third time's a charm...
Well, it's official. Drug policy reform has arrived in the mainstream. Conan O’Brien made a joke about MPP's Nevada initative in his monologue. That's not their slogan of course and nobody laughed at the joke, but when he announced the initative to set it up, he got a big round of applause.
MPP is also receiving all kinds of good press within Nevada.
And on Wednesday of last week, our Nevada campaign was featured prominently and favorably during the 5:30, 6:30, and 11:00 slots of the local evening news on the ABC and CBS TV affiliates in Carson City, Reno, and Tahoe. One CBS news anchor even remarked on how the one-ounce possession limit mandated by our initiative is a very small amount of marijuana.If you have any money to give to political campaigns, this is one worth contributing to right now. They stand a decent chance of passing it this time. And if you're broke, they still have a good job available.
The political climate is ripe for change. The feds are so out of control, the states are starting to assert their rights. I read somewhere today, there's big Kelo backlash going on in several states. There's no reason we couldn't ride that same wave of discontent and get some sensible drug policy enacted as well.
