I don't smoke weed myself but I am so tired of the foolishness around marijuana policy in this country.

Also tired of seeing tax dollars go to keep mj offenders in jail, the restriction of medical research, and so on.

Can you put the pledge on my blog? Then we can all see when we hit 1,00,000,000 pledges.

this is an important issue, though it does nothing for this forum or the occupy movement.

Start with pledges for $100. When we hit 1,000,000 pledges then pay the money. $100,000,000 would bank roll at least 20 campaigns.

Any weed smoker would be stupid not to invest $100. He'd save $100 on every ounce for the rest of his life.

Its your move now. Call me 203-612-1987 tonight.

Thank you.

If weed people would pledge $100 to my campaign, my first day in congress I will submit the bill to make weed legal.

It would be a lot cheaper. $5 an ounce and $10 tax.

Let the 60,000 inmates out and save $1.5 billion annually. Put the entire congress in prison for taking bribes.

Unions can bankroll a 3rd party read more http://overthecoals.blogspot.com/

Instead of union leaders pissing away the members' money by giving it to the Democrats who have stabbed the unions in the back when Clinton created NAFTA the minute he got inaugurated the members money can finance a 3rd party that would end globalization. Unions need to bargain for their members by completely excluding all nonunion employees from any benefits when they negotiate contracts.

The OWS protests could influence this process if OWS would nominate candidates for the unions to finance. The OWS strategy that refuses to nominate any candidates is self destructive for the protest.
