Hey Everyone! This is a video update from Ethan Nadelmann, the founder of the Drug Policy Alliance, on the status of the cannabis legalization movement in the US. Things are more hopeful than they’ve ever been before – we all need to get out and bring this debate into the public eye. The more we get people talking about cannabis, the faster our goals approach!
3052 dub Collective on the steps of the Capitol Building
A huge thanks to everyone who came out to support us on April 20th at the State Capitol Building and those individuals and supporting organizations who helped make this event possible!!
I’d say we had around 50 attendees at our highest point and personally, I had a really great time! It feels wonderful to actually get out and do something to help push this movement forward. The Band, 3052 dub Collective, played wonderfully and set the good mood for the rally (The governor seemed to be bothered by the bass levels for some reason though). Our speakers were passionate, informative, and clear in our message: Cannabis Prohibition is an abject failure and it’s time to discuss the less costly, more effective, and more logical alternatives.
We’ll have some media content from the rally uploaded soon and we’ll definitely be involved in more events in the future.
With that in mind, don’t forget to attend the Global Cannabis March this Saturday, May 7th!! There is a link to more information in the Global Cannabis March tab above. Here is a direct link to their page:
The Rally for Cannabis Reform represents many different individuals, businesses and organizations that want cannabis policy change for the State of Georgia! It is in that same spirit that we are proud to announce our musical guest for the afternoon of April 20th!
3052 dub Collective will be infusing our ears with rock, reggae and dub deliciousness. This local Atlanta favorite are as much a part of our movement as we are their music. You can also catch their full set later that night at a FREE reggae show at Five Spot in Little Five Points in Atlanta at 8 pm, April 20th, 2011. One love!
