I have to reflect those famous preisdential words "The only thing we have to fear is fear it's self"
On the whole, small time growers have nothing to fear in reality. Keep your self secure, and fight the good fight. It's the noble as well as moral thing to do. It's the only way we will truly make strides in this struggle for freedom. I've talked to so so many people that don't even use cannabis that feel it should be legalized.
I feel like we're standing on the edge of a new era. The door of opporotunity is right in front of us, all we need to do is give that door a collective kick. This is OUR country! Those govenment gurus and political pricks work for US. If they choose not to, then THEY are un-American, and are flirting with losing their jobs.
As Jayla pointed out, cannabis has become a big part of American culture. It's BEEN a part of Native American for YEARS. If our govt thinks they're going to stop US from partaking of our herb in the privacy of our own homes they have another thing coming. They'll have to pry my cold dead hands from my bong. Period. We allow millions of deaths on a moral issue of tobacco and alcohol for the sake of greasing the system with very LARGE amounts of money. Death and money over morality. It's high time (pun intended) our govt pull their heads out of their greedy asses and do the right thing. Cannabis is far less damaging to our socoety than tobacco and alcohol. That's a FACT. If we can put a man on the moon, they CAN make money from legalized cannabis. Fact.
This is OUR country.
This is OUR time.
Stand up, America, and be HEARD!
WE have the power to bring about that change.
To me if you won't fight for what's feeding your ass - you a hypocrite.
If you gotta hide you probably in a state that really needs you.
I had a "reality check".
Decided to quit the "woe is me bullshit" I've been selling myself and move to a legal state. Duh!
Quit the farm to farm another day. Sucked.
Became an active activist in my state while I make moving arrangements.
Met a lot of really cool people from all generations that have been carrying on the fight for us. On the front lines.
Just meeting these people has brought me new hope and confidence. These guys are good. Awesome and powerful mix of diversity and a shared passion.
Just think about what you could bring to the mix in your state?
I get the fear thing - I still scared shitless when I out there. But if I do not want to feel like that anymore, then I gotta do something about it now.
Get out there.
Person can be active and anonymous.
Put up a bunch of flyers
Put out a bunch of leaflets
Do some internet shit like Craigslist and link to an activist site.
Annonymous public awareness campaigns
I feel the biggest problem the movement has is that we have the majority of public opinion by a lot. But our majority is not always aware of what their legislators think of their opinion and how little weight they are really giving it.
Send the public to the best activist sites in your state
"Looking for the best Medicinal Cannabis?"
go to w w w . activist site of your choice . com
That should get some of our people off their asses
"85% Of Americans Are In Favor Of MMJ"
If this is you, then your opinion does not mean a thing
If your opinion matters to you
go to .....com
That bold part is a pretty strong example of an NLP hook that should catch the majority.
It's the noble as well as moral thing to do.
And you can
do it anonomously!
I'm just saying . . .
