NORML Affiliates To Protest Pot Prohibition On Tax Day

Washington, DC: On Monday, April 16, 2007, NORML chapters around the country will hold protests at their local post-offices to call on elected officials to tax and regulate cannabis in a manner similar to alcohol and tobacco.

Why the post offices?

My answer would be to connect to huge crowds that are filing last minute tax returns. Folks will be receptive to ideas that reduce their taxes by any means possible at that time and place.

I would think people will be in a hurry that day and not receptive to hearing anything that takes over three to four seconds of thier time.

Also, a tax stamp will not reduce our taxes, just make us pay more. I don't know what dealers you guys use, but my guys don't charge a weed tax.

Would it not be better to maybe hit people when they have some time to chill and actually listen to the cause, and not on a day that has such negative overtones?
