  1. Marijuana is the safest drug with actual benefits for the user as opposed to alcohol which is dangerous, causes addiction, birth defects, and affects literally every organ in the body. Groups are organizing all over the country to speak their minds on reforming pot laws. I drew up a very cool poster featuring Uncle Willie Nelson and The Teapot Party for the cause which you can check out on my artist’s blog at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot.com/2011/01/vote-teapot-2011.html Drop in and let me know what you think!

  2. HR 3371 is government greed! The tax and lisencing structure is way to high and will not eliminate the black market. Add that to Blumenauer’s hr 501 thats $85 an oz. in taxes alone . Additionally it makes our children criminals and this $650 fine is higher than any other state that has decriminalized possession for under an oz. The Ca. Jack Herer initiative is more to my liking. HR 3371 would need many changes before I put my full support behind it.
