Marijuana Legalization Supporters Release Pro-Marijuana Ad for Mother’s Day

 by lucy

Mother’s Day is this Sunday, May 13, and Colorado’s Campaign to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol has decided to tie their campaign ads into the holiday.

The TV ad features a young, pretty woman sitting on the grass in a park with her laptop.  She narrates what she is writing in an e-mail to her mother, which details that she has chosen to use marijuana rather than alcohol.  During the ad, words from her letter come up on the screen, including, “I used to drink a lot, now I prefer marijuana.”

Another sentiment expressed through the ad is that marijuana is safer and less harmful.  The ad ends with the woman saying, “Let’s talk,” and a URL is shown for TalkItUpColorado.org, a website sponsored by The Campaign to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol.  The website aims to spread the truth about, and change the way people think about, marijuana.

According to the campaign’s advocacy director, “Our goal with the ad is to start a conversation — and encourage others to start their own conversations — about marijuana.”

The Campaign to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol, Amendment 64, aims to legalize marijuana for recreational use for residents over the age of 21.  The Initiative received the required 86,105 signatures to make it onto the November general election ballot, where state voters will have the opportunity to have their voices heard regarding marijuana legalization.

    im all for marijuana being legalized but im not sure this is the best way to reach anyone who isnt already for the cause, which i would hope is the effort of these campaigns. however i didnt personally see the ad so i wont condemn it so quickly. we need to spread the facts both positive and negative and be as realistic as possible, but mainly focus on the fact that our country was founded on the idea of personal freedoms. look at politicians that say whatever they can to pursuade people, whether it be correct or not, and then look at people like Ron Paul, who speaks the truth consistently and in front of audiences that dont want to hear what he is saying. The 'Ron Paul-esque' approach is what we need, which is why so many people gravitate towards him (especially young people who seem to be more open to new ideas)
