I remember back when I was growing up, there was no internet. Well, there was a rudimentary form of the internet, but it hadn't been 'created by Al Gore' yet. If you don't understand that reference, you are likely much younger than I am. Today information is at people's fingertips, and awareness spreads so much faster as a result. A great example of that is a video that was uploaded by Students for Sensible Drug Policy (SSDP). The video was made by Rick Doblin, who was basically cyber presenting at the recent SSDP conference via the video. Now I'm cyber attending the conference by watching his speech from afar. What a truly amazing time to be an activist.
This video really inspired me, and it's something that I think every young activist should see. And for that matter older activists should see it too. Rick Doblin is the founder and Exective Director of the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS). He is brilliant, and does amazing work that benefits all cannabis consumers and activists whether they know it or not. His words are very inspirational, and have definitely put some wind under my sails. I love SSDP (donate here) and I love MAPS (donate here). Enjoy:
