Political candidates used to send their checks back to NORML, the National Organization for Reform of Marijuana Laws. Now lawmakers and wannabes are beating a path to the door of Executive Director Allen St.Pierre. Suddenly, after decades of trying, even people like John McCain as well as President Obama are moving toward legalization of recreational use of marijuana. St. Pierre reveals that it’s all really in the hands of women; they’re the ones who finally got alcohol prohibition removed. And he takes a sharp look at Patrick Kennedy’s latest grab for the spotlight, revealing the source of SAM’s funding. As St.Pierre says, “marijuana is not going to legalize itself,” there’s much work to be done.
