These are just a few ideas that have been running through my mind for the past few weeks, now I need others opinions. The first idea was brought up in some other topic, but I didn't think it was brought out to its fullest extent. 1. Oprah. I would REALLY like to have her on our side. She influences millions of people (many of these people being women/mothers). If we could somehow get in touch with her and show how marijuana prohibition is keeping the dealers around the playgrounds and near the kids...she may want to air an episode or two on legalization (in return possibly convincing millions of mothers). Many times I hear the stereotype that marijuana and African Americans go hand in hand. Not exactly true, but maybe we can use this to show her that many African Americans are incarcerated because of simple marijuana possession...thus also bringing up the fact how prohibition is wasting taxpayers dollars on housing inmates. 2. I think that we should be fighting for the legalization and taxation of marijuana, but not allowing (or allowing only after paying heavily for permit) people to grow their own or sell their own. This shows the government that they will almost ALWAYS be able to make money, and not have to worry about the guy down the street undercutting their prices or growing their own. I know it isn't exactly what everyone wants, but it might be good to start small and show the government that not everyone will grow their own...leaving them with no profit. This way also allows police to keep some funding to investigate matters of illegal growing/selling (without permit). This idea isn't thoroughly thought out from all angles, but it's just basic. It's 3 in the morning and I'm pretty tired so I'm sure there is a on I've left out and will notice by rereading my post in the morning, but I'd like some feedback on the ideas. Thanks guys.
