Get Involved to Recreate “Spirit of 1968”

For over 20 years I have researched and written about the need for and mechanisms of social change. The Democratic National Convention in Denver brings back various visions and views of the 1968 convention in Chicago.  For perspective, I was 16 and living an hour from downtown Chicago when things started happening.  Several friends and I were stopped on the expressway from entering the downtown area.  We went home and missed the action.  I am also going to miss this years conventions because I have no funds and must do my thing here in North Carolina.

I have written earlier about the massive social movement that Obama has catalyzed. This article brings you the latest in plans, politics and philosophy from the social activists .  I urge anyone who is close by to join the cause of taking back our country.  Denver (and Minneapolis next week) are both among our most tolerant and progressive cities – visited each a few times.   Also read about Denver’s lax laws on smoking marijuana.  It is our country and we must make sure that Obama-Biden fulfill our needs and their promises!!  The whole world will truly be watching – just as they were in 1968.

States Scramble as Marijuana Becomes Biggest Cash Crop

One in four states allow the use of medical marijuana for patients with a doctor’s approval.  All the federal government needs to do is to call off the unethical and ineffective war against these states.  I have written that Obama will end the failed federal war on marijuana One stroke of the presidential pen will legalize it; and the pent-up demand will be overwhelming. Read more about how and why we can enjoy medical marijuana – whether or not the federal government allows us.

Recent reports show that marijuana has been the largest US cash crop for years.  This growth is concentrated in several regions (west coast and former tobacco states.)  States that now lead production will have an early advantage as the war ends.  Given how much money is tied up in pot production and distribution, the stakes are truly high.  Think of how much public benefit will occur if we had the tax revenues from legal production and consumption of pot.  The leading conservative voice, William F. Buckley strongly supported legalization of marijuana. Real jobs, wealth and happiness will be created in the process!!

Obama will End War on Weed – McCain Will Push Booze!!

Federal pot prohibition programs will end – at least if Barack Obama becomes our president. As I wrote here on February 3, 2008 – Obama Should be willing to legalize marijuana.  I recently received a response from the Obama campaign that basically supports my early prediction. Start asking him questions in public.  After that I present some shocking revelations about the extent to which Old McCain is beholden to the booze industry (particularly BUSH beer).  Finally, is analysis of the recent House Bill that would make even recreational use no longer a crime.
