Revolution is in the air! From Wikipedia: "...Protests are an unprecedented revolutionary wave of demonstrations and protests which have been taking place in the Middle East and North Africa... To date, Tunisia, Egypt and Libya have seen revolutions of historical consequence, Algeria, Bahrain, Djibouti, Iran, Iraq, Jordan, Oman and Yemen have all seen major protests... The protests have shared... the use of social media such as Facebook and Twitter to organise, communicate, and raise awareness in the face of attempts at state repression..."

What does that mean to us? The time for a Marijuana Revolution in America is now!

We must use  social media tools to bombard/swamp/deluge/flood all elected officials -- at the local, state and federal level -- with our discontent/dissatisfaction/disgust over America's failed war on marijuana. Most elected officials today are maintaining and monitoring Twitter and Facebook feeds/pages; it is up to us to leverage this new media to get our message out -- LOUD and CLEAR!

We must monitor the local and national news for "Marijuana injustices". For example, in New York City, possession of 25 grams or less of marijuana is punishable by a fine of $100 for the first offense; despite this, NYC cops are known to trick users into showing their weed, at which point they can cite them for possession of any amount in public where the marijuana is burning or open to public view, which is a class B misdemeanor and is punishable by up to three months in jail and a fine up to $500. We must be on the look out for these situations and we must use these new social media tools to HIGHLIGHT these police infringements on our rights. Wherever we find intolerance, or police misbehavior contrary to the letter and intent of the law, we must publicize it!

As the US military is under a continual and unblinking eye of scrutiny the world over, so must the cops that are currently running roughshod on our rights as American citizens! I recommend, as a matter of policy, that we document with camera and video image every police action that we see.

We must post what we see on the Facebook pages of our elected officials, our commentary in the comments sections of online newspapers, and we must blog our thoughts about these misuses of our tax dollars. We must upload our media to Youtube, Flickr and other hosting sites for the world to see.

We have to be heard expressing our dismay over the current state of affairs!!! This is bullshit and only we can change it, straight people may be willing to go along with decriminalization/legalization efforts, but we can not expect them to spearhead this for us!!!

The Constitution of the United States of America does not give our federal government the power to create or enforce these bullshit laws. The Tenth Amendment explicitly states the Constitution's principle of federalism by providing that powers not granted to the federal government nor prohibited to the states by the Constitution are reserved to the states or the people.
Gonzales v. Raich was a decision by the United States Supreme Court ruling that under the Commerce Clause of the United States Constitution, the United States Congress may criminalize the production and use of home-grown cannabis even where states approve its use for medicinal purposes. This ruling is specious at best. Again -- the burden is on us, the dope smokers, to fight this!!! We have to be heard or continue to suffer under this persecution!

I believe the time is right. We can do this now. Americans support allowing us to burn in the privacy of our homes, provided we aren't smoking up with children, or driving stoned, or going to work stoned, or smoking in public, or pushing for "rights" that would underwrite stoned behaviors -- for example suing my workplace for medical treatment necessitated by my personal marijuana use.

I welcome your thoughts...

Create a petition online, gather as much as possible signatures.
Participate on Organizations like AVAAZ and others u think they have the same vision of u. Use the same tools and weapons they use... the pen and the paper (today is computer, even better). Use info from bibliografy, like few sensi seeds online have to sale. Use account, political info what happened on ages of '30 when tabu started at USA.
I wish u best luck
Go for it and hemp for the future
