The Silver Tour www.thesilvertour.org is producing the first ever SENIOR Rally and Lobbying event in our nation’s capitol. We will partner with SSDP (Students for Sensible Drug Policy) to lobby the House for passage of a budget amendment to prevent the DEA from enforcing federal marijuana laws in states with legal cannabis. It should come up for a vote in late June. Our lobby day is Monday June 17, 2013. If passed, it opens the door for other states that are holding back on medical or legalization for fear of the feds. There is strong media interest to cover the event. Seniors in DC for cannabis is a huge news story, especially when they arrive hand in hand with students from SSDP. The feature event of the day will be a luncheon at the National Press Club or a location on Capitol Hill.
For those who don’t know me, my name is Robert Platshorn. I was featured in the hit Showtime movie, Square Grouper. My Silver Tour was recently spotlighted on Jon Stewart’s Daily Show, CNN Money and on the front page of The Wall St Journal.
We need a sponsor or sponsors for the luncheon and buses. “Sponsored by” and sponsor’s logo will be large on all banners and signage at the lunch and press conference. The cost to sponsor the lunch/press event, is about $5,000. Bus sponsorship is $1,000. The sponsors will be national heroes to the millions of seniors, students and everyone in the country who supports medical marijuana and cannabis reform.
All sponsors can be anonymous if desired.
Arrangements can also be made to sponsor the entire event including buses, signage, giant traveling billboard and more. I’m hoping you may know someone who can become a sponsor for any amount . This will be the most historic D.C. event to date. Irv Rosenfeld, who gets his medical marijuana from the federal government and is also a Silver Tour Director will be on hand with me to meet with press and fans.
