Greetings from the Legalize It Tour! Slightly Stoopid and Cypress Hill have teamed up with the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws, also known as NORML to do a fan video contest in support of Prop 19.
Prop 19 – on California’s ballot this November — would allow adults 21 and up to buy marijuana for recreational use, and cause it to be taxed just like alcohol. If passed, this would be a HUGE step forward in the fight to end marijuana prohibition. Our government can generate between $12-18 billion in tax revenue, save over $200 million in law enforcement costs, and create between 60-80k new jobs.
We need you to make a video (60 seconds or less) stating what you think California should do with the revenue generated from taxing marijuana. Upload it to YouTube and BE SURE to tag it with “YesOnProp19” – all one word.
A pool of finalists will be selected based on which videos having the highest number of comments and views, and then the best video from those finalists will be awarded the grand prize. The grand prize winner will receive a personal phone call from B-Real of Cypress Hill, a limited edition Slightly Stoopid vaporizer, a framed and autographed tour poster, and a free one-year membership to NORML!
Two runner-ups will also each receive a special prize pack full of autographed t-shirts, hats, CD’s, and special edition Slightly Stoopid rolling papers and lighters. Finally, all of the grand prize and runner-up entries will be posted on our Facebook page, Slightly Stoopid’s Facebook page, and NORML’s Facebook page for worldwide fame!
Here are the rules: Everyone who enters must be at least 18 years old and a US resident. Additionally, all videos MUST have the tag “YesOnProp19” so we can find your entry on YouTube! Contest ends 9/1/2010.
