The Goal of The Silver Tour TV show, "Should Grandma Smoke Pot?".
Imagine what could happen if cannabis had a spokesman like Ron Popiel or Billy Mays.
If you've read my book Black Tuna Diaries, you know that the late great pitchman, Billy Mays, called me a "legend in the pitch business". I was making infomercials, before they had a name. Millions have watched me tell my story in the hit movie, Square Grouper, on Show Time. I'm the guy who spent thirty years in federal prison for marijuana and I'd like to see that it never happens to anyone else.
Along with Walter J.Collins, one of America's great award winning editor/producers, I'm producing a half hour TV show titled, "Should Grandma Smoke Pot?". It's top entertainment, it's shocking and it's an education, with heavy emphasis on medical marijuana. Endorsements for medical cannabis from popular authorities like Dr Oz, Dr Sanjay Gupta, Carl Sagan and Dr Andrew Weil sends a powerful message, especially to seniors. They are America's most powerful voting block. When seniors talk, politicians listen.
Featured in the show are patients like Irv Rosenfeld who receives three hundred free marijuana cigarettes every month from the federal government to treat his tumors. The same government that says cannabis has no medical value.
I am not producing a documentary for film festivals, a few TV airings or a theater run that will be seen by only a few hundred people who are already supporters. Most end up languishing on YouTube for activists to watch over and over.
The Silver Tour will air this show hundreds of times on national and regional TV in thirty minute infomercial slots on major stations and networks. One network has cleared the show for airing and they love the concept. Two more networks have asked to see the finished show. It will be aired repeatedly in states that have legalization or medical marijuana bills on the ballot this year and states that need to begin educating voters with a view to future legislation.
Most important, our viewers will actually learn from legal experts how the law can be changed and what to do to quickly end the madness of cannabis prohibition.
The Show Will Go On!
As you can see, we've met our goal for the last bit of funding to complete production. "Grandma" is in edit and the final cut should be ready before the end of July. It's time to begin locking in the best time slots on the regional networks and independent stations that will air our show. We buy these half hour slots at very low "infomercial" rates. Every airing will reach thousands of voting Americans at an average cost of only $200-$300.
A $5,000 pledge will buy "Grandma" an audience of millions on NATIONAL TV.
EVERY SINGLE PLEDGE EXTENDS THE TV CAMPAIGN!
Even the Wall St Journal when they witnessed the magic of a live Silver Tour show, became believers and published a front page story. http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052702303879604577410083094945256.html?KEYWORDS=the+silver+tour
