I know that the other post is getting a lot of attention but when is the population of disclosed herbal consumers going to MAkE the laws change??
I think that what this group is about when is a real change going to be made.
There are large protests all over the country to support herb becoming available as medicine and recreation.
Any one else think about this???
i think with any group of supporters (for whatever the cause is)....it has to do with the amount of people and the amount of money. i myself have never made much of any effort to support the legalization. i wish there was more in vegas to do to support it. of late we have a small amount of dispensaries and i did get my card but the government isnt going to legalize it just based on how many patients there are!... they need to see more people fight not just sit back and get high. there are so many sick individuals that it helps that cant do a whole lot (although i know there are ways we can all do something to contribute), but those individuals need us to fight for them. i hate to say it, im not even so sure they'd listen to a bunch of "healthy stoners" with back problems fighting for the really sick people. they think we are just a bunch of potheads. we as herbal conumers need to do a better job at portraying ourselves, make it really obvious that it is a good cause. possibly try to take away the smoking part of it! make it more a available and natural and HEALTHY alternative to drugs. Smoking is bad, period, they need to emphasize that! and make it more available in other forms. OOOOOOORRRRR start forking over the money people, guarantee you hand the right person(s) the right amount of money it'll be legal in a heartbeat (at least i believe it)
the legalization of pot sorta of stand up there on the list next to world peace, and GO FISH, there just arent enough participants to make it worthwhile for everyone.
a lot of people (and i guess i am one of em) are all for legalization and complain about how it's bull that it's not...you do have a point in saying "ok so we all agree that it should be legalized, too many people are prosecuted for simple possession, so let's do something about it!"
personally, i have donated money to pittsburgh norml...my current favorite shirt is the one i bought from them (my boyfriend and i fight over who gets to wear it :p)...oh and i got a pamphlet from them with tons of flyers to pass out that encourage people to become active in the fight. i passed out a few at some parties, but i didn't feel comfortable giving them out to just random people on the street for fear of offending them. i know i shouldn't be, but i just do not like controversy! so i guess i could do better.
other than these things i've done...i feel kind of confused on what else to do. i know i could do more...but what? ya know? :/
