Update #2

Congressmen and Porn Stars Agree...

Comment

It was a big week in the drug policy reform movement! We were very proud to launch our New York Times Op-Doc video right in the wake of Colorado and Washington's votes to legalize marijuana, followed by a piece in the Huffington Post.

The NYT video got tweeted and retweeted more than 1,800 times, including by Congressman Earl Blumenaur, Fear Factor host Joe Rogan, The Decemberists lead singer Colin Meloy, The Offspring and adult film star Sammie Rhodes!

Conversation threads about Chris Williams' story broke out on blogs and social media sites across the web. The video was featured on Boing BoingUpworthyWashington Monthly and it's currently the #2 link on Reddit! Most people are appalled and outraged that a single father could be thrown in prison for growing medical marijuana despite Montana's state law.

This is an important step towards starting a national conversation about our federal goverment's archaic marijuana laws and using CODE OF THE WEST to help build a movement for reforming them.

THANK YOU to our 133 backers so far!! We've almost hit the $10,000 mark with 23 days to go. And thank you to everyone reading this for helping to spread the word to your personal networks.

Stay tuned for some marijuana news round-ups and special video messages coming later this week!

With gratitude,

The CODE OF THE WEST Team
