4/20 End the Drug War Money Bomb? Good Idea to Win California?Submitted by jaktober on Mon, 03/19/2012 - 22:57
I'm on the fence about this myself (and it's my idea!).
I've been saying along the trail that once the "social conservative" states are done voting, and when it's time to really crack down and win California, that we can start leading with the Drug War issue, specifically legalizing marijuana.
4/20 is a huge day in the legalization movement.
It'll be enough time for the money to be used (as the 5/1 Taleb fund-raiser is obviously geared toward helping with our Primary).
However, even with the social conservative states done voting, we still have state conventions and the national convention, in which we will need to win over delegates.
My question I guess, would a 4/20 Money Bomb even be noticed by most non-Paul people. Wouldn't it only be noticed by pro-Paul/legalization people? And at this point, is there any point to "run away" from our position on drug policy?
I think this would be a great way of reminding voters in California that Paul supports our efforts to legalize marijuana. It'd help me out a lot too as I will probably be stopping by a lot of people's houses on 4/20 and can conveniently "check real quick" the donation total (as can many of us in California) as we are hanging out.
