Man... this is great.

I know the RSA's will likely pan it, but I don't care. The rest of us have to live here too.

There is a Cannabis Reform Group that has launched an attack ad on Cindy McCain and I am here to tell you about it, to praise it and to tell you to support it.

All on the flip.

It's pretty simple: Alcohol is hands down far more dangerous than pot ever could be.

Of course, the McCain money is soaked with booze.

Pointing to drug law hypocrisy, pro-pot group labels Cindy McCain 'dealer'

The just-launched Web site points to Cindy McCain's position as chair of her father's Hensley & Co., one of the country's largest Anheuser-Busch beer distributors, and it argues that alcohol is more toxic, addictive and prone to inspire violence than marijuana. The site, launched by the group Safer Alternative For Enjoyable Recreation, also features mock "Wanted" posters featuring a photo of McCain, wife of the Republican presidential candidate, and offering a -- wait for it-- $420 reward. The site also features a video parodying the Budweiser frog advertisements, labeling McCain a "Drug-Deal-Er"

Here's your responsible pot smokers banding together to address the worst GOP candidate since... the last GOP candidate!

And the activism is built-in. Alcohol IS dangerous. It eats up your brain and nervous system, it impairs your judgment and kills tens of thousands of people each year, just in America.

The "Drug Dealer" campaign will officially kick off Wednesday with a press conference in front of the Hensley distributorship in Phoenix, and SAFER is purchasing a few thousand dollars worth of advertising on several political blogs to promote the campaign.

On its Web site, SAFER also is offering printable Wanted posters it's encouraging supporters to display wherever they can.

Enjoy some video!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
