I agree with ending the war on drugs, but honestly I don't like the idea of a flyer promoting Ron Paul with a giant Marijuana leaf on the cover. It will scare people for whom the war on drugs is not a central issue and who haven't thought about it enough to realize its folly.

It will work wonders if you have the right audience targeted.

So don't take it to church.

It will scare people for whom the war on drugs is not a central issue and who haven't thought about it enough to realize its folly.People voiced the same concern over my orange and green concert flyers in 2007. They had pot leaves everywhere and focused on ending the war on drugs, the wars, and the IRS. We converted a ton of people using those flyers, and I have never seen or heard anything about them being used against us. In fact, an RP staffer who attended one of our meetups requested a box of the war on drugs flyers, which he then shared with other meetups.

Ron has been quite vocal in his position on the war on drugs / medical marijuana, and it's not something we can hide, so we might as well use it when it is bneficial to do so. As long as we know our audience, these flyers are fine. Common sense--take them to music fests, take them to Norml events, hemp fest, leave some at your local head shop, share them at pro-medical marijuana rallies, give a few to your stoner friends, etc. Don't leave them on windshields outside the grocery store or hand them out at church or gop fundraisers. It's no different than any other issue card/targeted slim jim. You wouldn't give your gay hippy neighbor a marriage/faith slim jim, and you're not going to hand out 2nd ammendment cards to the local soccer moms. Know your audience and target them appropriately.
