1 comment


Dennis! Kucinich, along with "Gramma's for Ganja" and "Moms for Marijuana," spoke at "Hempfest" in Seattle this past weekend. Among other things, Dennis! said America should legalize gay marriage, pot, end wars, and all write our names with exclamation marks after them.

He also urged the rally attendees to push for these outcomes themselves, saying "mass action" on the public's part is what creates change.

"This is why and how recent movements for freedom in Tunisia and Egypt gained momentum," he said. Also, that's how he got the deli up the street from his house to start carrying Tahitian Treat.
