                Bill Maher Joins The Silver Tour
Last year we warned that anti-marijuana forces are marshaling funds to stop the progress of cannabis legalization. ​I'm referring to a recent meeting of over 2000 anti-marijuana activists who have a financial interest in maintaining prohibition. "The CADCA convention featured a roster of federal officials and members of Congress. The speakers talked with energy about the coming showdown over marijuana-law reform."
                       Now Bill Maher has joined with us.
               "Stop treating it like you can never lose it."
Bill Maher, while smoking a doob on national TV, warned cannabis supporters not to rest on their laurels when it comes to ending national cannabis prohibition.               Like me, Bill Maher is worried that we have become dangerously over confident.

Cannabis legalization is being killed in more and more states. It's time to fight or flee.

         
 Unfortunatly we have been proven right.                    
                                       The War is On!

                      “They’ve completely wiped us out.”

Don't allow the smoking of medical marijuana in Florida"Smoking marijuana is just as bad or worse for your lungs and other parts of the human body as regular tobacco. If this legislation passes in its current form, someday you will see an increase in the current epidemic of the use of heroin."

                     That is only the tip of the iceberg,
Corporate money is now backing lawsuits against cannabis .Several have already have succeded where defendants were unable to afford to fight these expensive court battles. It's an old corporate tactic.

We Can Stop this "Reefer Madness" Propaganda
                    By educating voters and legislators. 
You would think that would be obvious, but it isn't.
Every pro-cannabis person I've ever met still laments;
                                  "If people only knew!"
As hard as this is to believe, no other activist organization has ever used mass media for cannabis education
Folks we need to educate will never see Facebook pages, tweets, or Instagrams. They do not listen to internet radio or watch YouTube or internet TV.  

The voters who favor marijuana prohibition. get their information from traditional radio, TV, newspapers and billboards. The Silver Tour is the only organization that uses these media to educate.
Our award winning half hour TV show aired hundreds of times on top stations in twenty states. Our show is used to educate seniors in a dozen countries in several languages. It brings seniors out of the closet and into the activist ranks demanding "Safe, Legal Access". Click to view   "Should Grandma Smoke Pot?"
We reached millions on The Daily Show
We brought hundreds of seniors and vets to D,C, to get the Holder Memo. Four hundred and fifty Silver Tour supporters took over the Capitol Bldg in Tallahassee.
The Silver Tour has put these powerful billboards on major highways and streets in several states. 

                        We Have a Plan!  "Fight Back!"
Last September we aired more than four thousand 60 second "Cannabis Facts" on the best radio stations in seven states. Click Here to listen to some of the spots.

Anti-marijuana campaigns are only successful when unopposed.  2016 will be a watershed year.Educating voters, especially seniors is the only way to ensure we do not have a repeat of the defeats in Florida, Montana, New Mexico, New Hampshire and Virginia.
                           Sound Expensive? It’s not
THE SILVER TOUR NEGOTIATED AN AMAZING DEAL WITH AMERICA’S STRONGEST RADIO CHAIN
      1000 Sixty second radio spots a week for $5000
 National Broadcast Exposure for $5.00 a Minute is cheap insurance for ending cannabis prohibition.
                                              Why Radio?
Every area has hundreds of TV stations. But most cities only have one or two radio stations that older adults listen to while they drive or at work. This makes it easy to reach a large senior audience.

                 Its not expensive, but it's not FREE!
Even a five dollar donation will reach thousands of voters with an important message. A hundred bucks can pay for a full day (20) of messages on a top station.

 Our new goal $150,000,  if met, of  will take us through to the 2016 elections. With your support, we will air and educate . Please partner with me to end cannabis prohibition.  All funds collected will be spent on the campaign regardless of whether or not we reach the total goal.

Sponsorship
Sponsors that donate $5,000 for an entire week of 1000 radio spots, will have their name/organization promoted at the start and finish of each message. Like NPR, our donors/sponsors will be promoted twice in every spot..i.e
“This is MARIJUANA FACTS from the Silver Tour brought to you by Magical Butter, balancing nature and technology at Magicalbutter.com"
Smaller and regional sponsorship also available.

Another voice! Dan Skye, long time Editor of High Times Magazine joins with us in stressing the need to educate the American public.
"The simple fact is that, regardless of the tremendous strides that our community has made in legalizing cannabis, there's still a long way to go … It's been said: 'Legalization of cannabis is a marathon — not a sprint.' Only four states currently allow adult, recreational use of cannabis. And although more states are placing the issue of legalization before voters in November, there is still a great deal of education necessary in order to make cannabis truly a part of mainstream American life."
