Million Marijuana March
How this got passed me, I have no idea. I was surprised to find that yesterday was the annual day of protest against marijuana prohibition, know as the Million Marijuana March.
I never heard or read anything about this coming up, and I subscribe to all kinds of lefty and anti- drug war e-mail lists. Maybe I just haven't been paying enough attention to my e-mail lately?
No big deal, as I wouldn't have been there anyway. It did get me to thinking again about something I mused about a couple years ago: A countywide initiative to decriminalize marijuana, much like Mendocino County did a few years ago.
I thought that would be a fun effort to pursue. I guess what stopped me from ever even beginning to work on it was, one; Laziness, and, two: My gut feeling was that it would fail, even up here.
Maybe it wouldn't fail, but my laziness makes potential failure a moot point.
How about some of you? Anyone out there interested in starting a campaign to decriminalize pot up here? I may be really lazy, but I'd be willing to help.
