|Weed Not Greed Marijuana Legalization Tour|
~ David Kowalsky, Cannabis Information Network
More and more Americans are letting their voices be heard on the subject of marijuana legalization. The Weed Not Greed Tour will be making its way across the country and will visit 21 cities in 33 days.
The tour plans to be departing from Seattle Hempfest, the biggest cannabis protestival in the world, which will be held August 17 through 19, and will be present at the Democratic National Convention with its final destination being Washington, D.C., on September 11.
The aim is to spread the word about cannabis and to let the people's voices be heard, so that people will understand about marijuana and not view it as just another illegal drug.
"It will be the voice for the people who cannot not or will not advocate themselves," said David Kowalksy of the Cannabis Information Network, which is organizing the tour. "However, the Weed Not Greed Tour needs support of the people and is still in need of a tour sponsor."
The marijuana legalization tour will travel in a 45-foot "moving billboard" (tour bus) with advocacy and legalization messages plastered all over it for everyone to see.
"Aside from the national landmarks they'll be visiting, each time the bus is seen, it will be a direct action message that 'We The People' want marijuana made legal!" Kowalsky said. "There has never been a tour of this magnitude for making cannabis legal, ever."
Kowalsky said he believes that marijuana has legitimate medicinal value and that it should be made legal.
"This will be the biggest tour to make cannabis legal and will have a memorable effect on the people of the USA," Kowalsky said in a press release. "We can help everyone across the US not only understand about marijuana but make it legal with the Weed Not Greed Tour.
"People need to understand that marijuana does not deserve the bad reputation it has," Kowalsky said. "It is a healing part of Mother Nature and should be treated as such."
