Thank God too! It was just in time! Phew!
DRIGGS, Idaho - Dawn Wells, who played Mary Ann on "Gilligan's Island,"
serving six months' unsupervised probation after allegedly being caught
with marijuana in her car.
Gilligan was busted in 1998 for having Fedex deliver mj to his house.
Evidently they must have all been druggies. The professor was
definitely into psychedelics, Gilligan and Mary Ann were potheads, the
Skipper was heavy into beer, Ginger acted like a coke fiend, and Mr.
Magoo and his wife were no doubt taking Quaaludes.
What kind of message did this send to the children?
Well if it wasn't for the nosy, gossippy, dirt-digging, conservative
drug prohibition noisemakers making a big stink about it, the children
know anything about it.
What kind of message is Rash Limpdick sending as a drug-addicted hypocrite?
What? No whining about people dying from overdosing on
aspirin or prescription drugs?
And all of this is more important than invading a country that
was no threat to the US and murdering them for their resources?
So, what's your solution, bubba?
MY SOLUTION -
Go to NORML.ORG and join. Pledge at least $10 a month. These guys have
been fighting for all of us since the '70's.
Even if you don't like MJ please help legalize it. Make room in our
jails for violent criminals and tweakers. Save our tax money for
better uses than locking up potsmokers.
Buy local. Grow a victory garden.
Please participate in the phone-in detailed below. This is happening
this Monday, 4/21. Help make it a reality.

NORML's Keith Stroup: Celebrate 4/20 - ReLegalize It 4/21!
April 19, 2008
Dear Friend of Freedom,
Im writing today to urge you to be a part of history. Thats right,
I said history.
For the first time in nearly 25 years, NORML is spearheading a
campaign in Congress to end the federal prohibition of marijuana.
Congress created cannabis prohibition, and the courts say time and
again to reformers: Congress is the place to change marijuana laws.
Bi-Partisan Support in Congress for Reform
To wage this long-overdue effort, NORML has teamed up with two of our
closest Congressional allies: Democrat Congressman Barney Frank from
Massachusetts and Republican Congressman Ron Paul of Texas. Over the
past several months I have worked closely with these courageous
Representatives to draft legislation that would strip the federal
government of its authority to enforce marijuana possession laws. This
legislation is now pending before Congress as House Bill HR 5843, an
Act to Remove Federal Penalties for Personal Use of Marijuana by
Yes indeed, for the first time in more than two decades, we have
legislation in Congress that, if enacted, would end the federal
prosecution of adult marijuana consumers!
The Federal Marijuana Decrim Bill
As introduced, NORMLs proposal would eliminate all federal penalties
prohibiting the personal use and possession of up to three ounces of
marijuana. Under our measure, adults who consume cannabis would no
longer face arrest, prison, or even the threat of a civil fine. In
addition, this bill eliminates all penalties prohibiting the
not-for-profit transfers of up to one ounce of pot. In other words,
for the first time since 1937, the possession, use, and transfer of
marijuana by adults would be legal under federal law!
I must admit, in my 40+ years working on marijuana law reform, Ive
rarely been as excited about the introduction of a piece of
legislation or its prospects of success as I am today. That is
why Im humbly asking you to join me in making this effort the success
I know it can be, but only with your help.
Sustained Funding Drives Successful Congressional Educational
Waging and maintaining a high-profile Congressional campaign like this
one requires sustained funding, and it requires the involvement of
tens of thousands of dedicated citizens like you. By donating $50.00
or more today to NORMLs 2008 Re-Legalization Campaign, you will
enable us to:
Lobby the Democrat Congress for hearings in support of ending the
federal governments war on weed;
Build a broad coalition of diverse and powerful allies to petition
Congress to pass HR 5843 ;
Coordinate national media efforts to generate frequent news stories
and television appearances favorable to HR 5843.
Of course, generating substantive support for HR 5843, requires more
than just your financial assistance; it also requires a small donation
of your time.
Celebrate Cannabis On 4/20 Help Re-Legalize It On 4/21!
For a moment, just imagine the impact of 1,000 phone calls to Congress
all on the same day, all at the same time, all with one single
message: stop arresting responsible marijuana consumers! Now imagine
the impact of 10,000 phone calls or even 50,000 calls jamming the
Congressional phone lines! Thats the outpouring of support we need
to show to Congress, and its the type of support we intend to
generate with your help.
You are receiving this heartfelt appeal from me today, as are hundreds
of thousands of other NORML supporters. And on Monday, April 21, we
need every one of you to send an unmistakeable and unforgettable
message to the 110th Congress.
MARK YOUR CALENDARS
LETS MAKE APRIL 21 A DAY THAT CONGRESS NEVER FORGETS!
NORML needs you to call your Congressional Representative on Monday,
April 21, and deliver the following message:
Millions of hard-working Americans use marijuana. Most consume it
responsibly, in the privacy of their own homes, and in a manner
similar to alcohol. Why then are we spending millions of dollars each
year to arrest these otherwise law-abiding individuals? Its time to
end the madness; its time to stop arresting responsible marijuana
consumers. I urge you to support House Bill HR 5843, an Act to
Remove Federal Penalties for Personal Use of Marijuana by Responsible
(You can contact the office of your US Representative directly dialing
the Congressional Switchboard at 202-224-3121.)
After you have done so, we also ask that you please e-mail this
message to Congress. Simply click here and enter your zip code and
NORML will instantly send a pre-written message in your name to your
Imagine the buzz on Capitol Hill as thousands upon thousands of
phone calls and e-mails begin pouring in to the Congressional offices
in support of legalizing marijuana. Never before has the marijuana
law reform movement made this sort of political statement to
Washington; we intend to make it a statement that our elected
officials wont soon forget. As I said at the opening of this letter,
we truly will be making history!
