New Zealand Pro-Cannabis Group Raising Money by Selling Cannabis Bonds

July 29th

By | The Daily Chronic - The Voice of the Reform Generation

AOTEAROA, NEW ZEALAND — A pro-cannabis political party from New Zealand has found a unique approach to sell cannabis to supporters without breaking the law. The Aotearoa Legalise Cannabis Party  is selling bond certificates good for an eighth of marijuana, redeemable once it is legal to do so.

The $50 Cannabonds are part of a fundraising effort looking forward to a 2014 election campaign to promote a regulated, taxable cannabis market for adults.

“We think this is a fun way of repaying our supporters in the future,” spokesman Steven Wilkinson said.

“We are the only political party in New Zealand that is offering Cannabis bonds so we think it will give us an advantage leading into the next election.”

The party says they anticipate legalization, and the bonds will be redeemable after six months of growing a “Victory Crop,” which will be distributed to bond holders upon harvest.

When asked about the legality of the Cannabonds, Mr Wilkinson said they were “entirely legal” and “the party would not be engaging in any illegal activity”.

The bonds can be purchased on the ALCP’s website: www.alcp.org.nz/vote2014/shop

MPP Launches Pro-Marijuana Video Ad at Major NASCAR Event

July 26th

By | The Daily Chronic - The Voice of the Reform Generation

INDIANAPOLIS, IN — Fans attending this weekend’s NASCAR Brickyard 400 in Indianapolis will be greeted by a giant video board displaying the latest ad in the Marijuana Policy Project’s (MPP) “Marijuana is Safer” campaign.

The video ad, which resembles a beer commercial, compares alcohol and marijuana, pointing out that marijuana doesn’t contain calories, cause hangovers, or promote reckless, violent behavior.

“If you’re an adult who enjoys a good beer,” says the ad, “there’s a similar product you might want to know about.”

The video ends with the tagline  ”Less harmful than alcohol, and time to treat it that way,” and provides a link to MarijuanaIsSafer.org, which provides an introduction to marijuana, as well as information on marijuana’s impact on the consumer and on the community.

“We think it’s critical that the public recognize that marijuana is objectively less harmful than alcohol,” says MPP spokesperson Mason Tvert, the co-author of the book READ MORE
