Things we can do in the meantime:
* Marches, Rallies, HempFests and other
such Events for raising awareness and few $. See Events
for ideas. Not only do we get our days in the sun but the sign making
parties and other team activities are learning & growing opportunities
* Put together a Film Fest. Get
all the old favorites ("Reefer Madness", "Assassin of Youth") as well as
the latest ("Grass", "Saving Grace", "Traffic"). Educate as well
* Hemp Fashion Show. A very good
way to demonstrate the value of hemp. People are learning that hemp
clothing is not only more durable and comfortable but as versatile as any
other material. Find a local retailer and establish a mutually beneficial
* Hemp Pot Luck. (pun intended)
Get together and have a hemp food cook off. If we do it right, it
could be a yearly event (like a chili feed) and draw media as well as be
a tasty way to inform & educate.
* Lobbying and other political Events.
Letter writing and calling campaigns do have an effect, especially when
legislators get them in batches.
