I don’t have any time for editing so I am going to have to read something to you that is very important.  It concerns a global campaign to completely Re-Legalize Marijuana and the launch date is officially May 2nd, 2009: the date of the 10th Annual Global Marijuana March.

I am the originator of International Drug Policy Day which was the first International event in history to call for the immediate Re-Legalization of Marijuana.  It was celebrated globally for six years between 1990 and 1995.  The Global Marijuana March began four years later in 1999 and celebrates a 10th Anniversary on May 2nd and May 9th 2009.  Since 1999 the Global Marijuana March protests have been celebrated in 556 different cities from 54 different nations; yet such protests have been largely ignored by the Corporate Controlled Media as well as the moneyed drug reform organizations.

I see the 2009 Global Marijuana March as the launching point for a unrelenting international campaign to Re-Legalize the Untaxed and Unregulated Cultivation of Marijuana under what is know as the MERP Model.  The MERP Model is a much better solution than Marijuana Prohibition, the Medical Marijuana Model, or the worst model of them all: a model under which Marijuana is highly taxed and regulated.

The MERP Model is the only model that will immediately destroy the drug cartels and put a stop to the arrest of over 800,000 US Citizens every year.  None of the other models can pretend to achieve these two important goals.  And despite the naysayers at the Marijuana Policy Project, the Drug Policy Alliance and other “moneyed” drug reform organizations, there is no reason why this cannot occur as early as 2009.

I want to thank all of the activists that have been promoting the MERP Model through their websites and encourage consumers and non-consumers alike, to:

(1) Attend one of the Global Marijuana March Protests

(2) Distribute our mini-flyers at and beyond the Global Marijuana March Protests in May of 2009.

(3) Contribute your time and money to implement the MERP Model immediately.  You can send your checks and money orders to New Age Citizen in order to help us in our campaign.

To get involved in the great push to get the MERP Model implemented I invite you to visit “MERP Headquarters” which can be easily accessed from the homepage of
