crow Posted February 7, 2016 Report Share Posted February 7, 2016 Hey Stoners,Today I have had a completely mad idea - to organize a 420 rally in my local regional centre, a town of approx 10,000 people.As happens so often with me once I get an idea in my head I cannot let it go! As a bit of background and insight to why this means so much to me and why I feel motivated to do something...I had my first toke at 16, some 30 years ago. I've not smoked ever since, but only because it's been illegal and often unavailable to me (until you fine folks taught me how to grow my own).I moved to this backwater 15 years ago and have pretty much had no stoner friends ever since.I've recently come out to my family as a long time smoker and it didn't really go down well as my parents are of the generation completely brainwashed into believing cannabis is a demon drug with no redeeming features whatsoever.I've subsequently become the butt of a joke any time the subject of canna comes upI'd like to change the prejudices of people towards canna.For various reasons, not the least of which that it 300km away, I can't get to the Melbourne rallyThe Nimbin Mardigrass gets absolutely no publicity here whatsoever. BUT, if a 420 rally was held in Swan Hill, it would be all over the local news and people might start to take notice, maybe open a few eyes. So I put it to you, my stoner friends, to either help me or dissuade me from this madness On the plus side, I have come up with the idea nice and early which would allow for plenty of preparation and advertising On the negative, I have a current grow underway that will not be finished by April 20th so I really don't need to be attracting attention to myself (and I really don't want to be associated publicly as the face of the rally if that makes sense). Has anyone been to the big city ones? Do you need to have guest speakers or can I just put out flyers and hope everyone turns up to the local park with a joint? See, I've nfi! But I am very serious about my passion to do this. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
