End the "War on drugs"

which is actually a war on our youth and poor. In an interview with High Times, Cliff Thornton says that his campaign for Governor of CT suffered most from lack of funding.

Even the folks who had been working on drug policy side-by-side sat on their wallets. There was a time, long ago, when it was not unheard of for a fellow drug reform supporter to drop a bag filled with cash at the offices of NORML or CAMP without asking for a receipt. Today it seems that being the right person running for the right office on the right positions is not enough.

Nothing behind the "Read more!" link on this one, but the article is an important one.

How can we tap into those wallets? Afterall, we are really only talking about small change. The cost of ONE plasma screen TV would keep the national party rolling for a few days. A cup of Starbucks every day costs a LOT more than most Greens give to the party or our candidates, much less those whop are not Greens but are Green supporters. How can we break through without money?
