Join NORML at the Rally to Restore (Pot) Sanity

  • by Sabrina Fendrick October 26, 2010

    It is time to end reefer madness and restore pot sanity.

    Join NORML and other drug policy reform groups at Jon Stewart’s Rally To Restore  Sanity.

    When: Saturday, October 30, 2010

    Where: The National Mall, Washington, DC

    Time: 11am -3pm

    NORML is working to organize the thousands of marijuana law reform supporters that will be attending this rally to stand together in support of California’s legalization initiative, proposition 19, and ending marijuana  prohibition nationwide.

    Meet us at the Rally!  We will be handing out “Legalize Pot” posters (like the one above) with other drug policy reform groups  on the National Mall, at the intersection of Constitution Ave and 4th St.

    **Note: This is not a marijuana law reform rally, this is a political rally with a mainstream message–We need to represent ourselves as mainstream activists.  Be clean and conscientious of what you wear. This is serious business. It is important to recognize that you will be representing the cause to the media and the rest of the country**

    How To Prepare

    RSVP on facebook and invite all your friends

    -Get to the rally on time.

    -Pick up one of our signs on the corner of Constitution Ave and 4th St NW

    -Bring everyone you know!

    After The Rally:

    Phonebanking to Restore Sanity – Time: 3:00-Midnight

    Location: 1623 Connecticut Ave NW, Suite 300 Washington, DC

    Activists and volunteers are encouraged to join us at the Students for Sensible Drug Policy (SSDP) headquarters where there will be a phonebanking party to call voters in support of Proposition 19. There will be pizza! If you can, please bring a laptop & your phone.  RSVP for the post-rally phonebanking party.

    1. Wisconsin will be there in spirit as we prepare to elect very pro cannabis candidates and move FORWARD with marijuana reform (and yes, I wear a tie almost everyday, most of the time a suit.)

      I do not live in California, so Prop 19 does not apply to me. However, Of californian’s I ask this :
      1. Please keep in you minds the Damage done not ONLY to California but to the rest of America from the Violent Gangs that Plaque’s our streets.

      2. To keep in mind We are also oppressed by government.

      3. To keep in mind the Horable Killings of thousands of Mexicans, that is still on going.

      4. To keep in mind our Econamy and what help that Prop 19 can give is better than Spending Money that we don’t have on a War that we can’t win.

      5. To keep in mind that in this Issue you DON”T stand alone.

      And Finally I ask you to remember that When you Go Vote on Nov. 2 That Our hopes and hearts go with you. If I was californian, I would Say “YES ON PROP 19”

      Go california Lead us into a Better way of Life.

      Bad news, PPP poll has Prop 19 losing by 3 points now and they use automated polling. PPP had us up big time early this summer.

      The mass anti-prop 19 radio ads are working and it seems the only hope is an effective and organized GOTV. The fact that polling earlier this year that had Prop 19 up big is going to help but at this moment passage of Prop 19 doesn’t look promising.

      Please, if you are in California, VOTE… If you can vote you must vote..there are no excuses.

      Get. Out. The. Vote.

      i wish i could be thier but i live out of state this rally is great but if prop 19 fails than we need to organize a legalization march on the white house even if 19 wins the only way to get it legalized is a million person march so the media will actually finally get how big the legalization movement really is. this country needs to see that its not about a bunch of hippies getting stoned and that it is mainstream i might add that every debate i see in the media shows marajuana supporters outnumbering those against
