I've always thought a Johnny Hempseed movement would be a good
idea. No vacant lot, roadside, ditch, or park should be without
hemp. It's a very hardy weed, should grow anywhere, or so say
hemp activists. One shouldn't be able to look at any
non-landscaped public property without bearing witness to the
absurdity and futility of making war against a plant.

Fun idea. I look forward to viewing the finished product. :)

I don't know. However, race could become a powerful factor in
discontinuing prohibition. Look up incarceration rates for
black males. Or how prohibition has wracked Columbia and other
hispanic countries. If advocates of freedom have any opportunity
to play the feared "race card", this is it.
