Update: Checkout the HuffingtonPost’s interactive map regarding information about Alcohol Prohibition in conjunction with the upcoming PBS documentary debuting this Sunday night, ‘Prohibition’.
Have you made plans yet to host or attend a ‘Pot Prohibition Parlor Party’ next Sunday night? Have you been in touch with one of the nearly 200 NORML chapters in America about your desire to get involved with these much needed law reforms?
Why convene such controversial parties?
Because on Sunday, October 2nd, the Public Broadcast Corporation will air the most recent American history documentary from Ken Burns called ‘Prohibition’.
Also, and probably not by coincidence, October 2 marks the 74-year anniversary of America’s longest, most expensive and constitutional-twisting prohibition…Cannabis Prohibition!
This most recent examination of a slice of American history by Mr. Burns is the single best opportunity in years for the general public to understand the folly and expense of Cannabis Prohibition (the only educational documentary that can top this one about the tremendous failure of Alcohol Prohibition would be…a Ken Burns documentary on the history–and absurdity–of Cannabis Prohibition).
Invite some good friends, family and co-workers to get together next weekend to watch the first installment in the three part series. Afterward, when lobbying your local, state and federal elected policymakers to reform cannabis laws, ask them if they watched the Burns documentary.
If they say ‘yes’….ask them if they support continuing another 74 years of Cannabis Prohibition in America.
If they say ‘no’, get them the documentary to watch, follow up and ask them to end Cannabis Prohibition by establishing logical law reforms such that cannabis is as legal and taxed as other adult products like alcohol, tobacco and caffeine.
Ask them to respect the Constitution, the free market, personal autonomy and the right for self-preservation.
