Hollywood's libertine libertarians at the MPP annual fundraiser
In an attempt to conform to stereotypes, the Marijuana Policy Project held its June 12th fundraiser at the Playboy Mansion in Los Angeles.
Reason.tv caught up with Rob Kampia, co-founder of the Marijuana Policy Project (and the seconder of Bob Barr's nomination at the 2008 Libertarian National Convention) who had this to say about the state of marijuana prohibition in the United States:
"Everything is trending in the right direction in terms of changing more state medical marijuana laws year-to-year, changing local policies making marijuana the lowest law-enforcement priority in different cities, increasing our votes for medical marijuana in Congress, we just had the first ever bill introduced in Congress to eliminate federal penalties for marijuana possession, not just for medical use. All these things are positive indicators, they're all trending in the right direction."

You cops are so glaringly selfish. Stop profiting off the infringement of other people's liberties.
Boy, it's gonna be great when you guys are on trial for your crimes after we legalize drugs.

No big name movie star is going to back your cause. They won't risk their stardom even if they privately do so. You're going nowhere.

Jesmi, I think you better lay off the weed a bit.
I couldn't understand a damn thing you wrote.
You too, Seymour. Where did you get the idea Zeb was a cop and where in hell did you get the crazy idea that a)marijuana will ever be legalized and
b) that banning it was a crime?
Sheesh, what a bunch!!
