For Mother’s Day

In just six months, Mainers will decide whether to end marijuana prohibition and regulate marijuana like alcohol in the state.

And here’s the truth: We will win this election if people older than 50 come to appreciate that marijuana is an acceptable and less harmful alternative to alcohol.

So in honor of Mother’s Day, we have produced a 30-second video to inspire our supporters to take action. It shows a young woman sending an important email to her mother, explaining that she prefers marijuana over alcohol for a number of logical reasons.

After you watch the video, use the form on the page to send a message to your mother or anyone else with whom you’d like to start a conversation about marijuana. The email, which you can modify if you’d like, is not an aggressively “pro-marijuana” email; it simply asks them to think about it. No harm in that, right?

We also encourage you to share the video on Facebook, Twitter, and any other social networks you use.

The most important thing is to Talk it Up! in whatever way you can. Send an email, share a video, or just have a conversation with your relatives about why you think it is irrational to allow people to use alcohol but punish them if they prefer to use something less harmful.

If you talk, we will win the election this November and marijuana prohibition will be over in Maine!

Thanks for taking action.
