Legalize It '79

Here's an ad culled from a vintage High Times magazine which advertises a "smoke-in" at the White House on July 3rd and 4th, the 4th obviously being our nation's independence day. I wonder how many people showed up? While obviously a step in the right direction, I guess it didn't do enough because we've still been dealing with the same oppressive laws for over 30 years since then. I have the feeling it was a bunch of unwashed hippies hanging out across the street playing the bongos a smoking joints.....which doesn't exactly bring the best image to the legalization movement. What we need is more "respectable" people.....suit and tie dudes....business men to come out and say,"When I get finished with a long day of work I'd rather smoke a joint of some good weed instead of having a double scotch on the rocks, and you know what? It's not a big deal". Once more "normal" people come out as pot-smokers I feel that we will gain a lot more ground for the cause, and eventually it will become even more socially acceptable, something that is happening as we speak. Look at the mainstream show "Weeds". I've been seeing advertisements EVERYWHERE promoting the new season of Weeds, a show about a pot dealing suburban mom that portrays pot in positive light. This is just the tip of the ice-burg as we as a society finally start to come to our senses.
