If you plan to attend the Alabamians for Compassionate Care rally on Feb. 13 in Birmingham here are a few (strong) suggestions.
The media will be in attendance. PLEASE DO NOT WEAR ANYTHING TYE DYE or anything else that can be associated with what the media likes to portray as dope smoking hippies. Wear normal, everyday clothes. No peace signs. No pot leaves. Sunday best is an option just make sure to wear comfortable walking shoes for the short walk to the fountain at 5 Points South and back to . Remember, each and every one of you that participates will be the face of this movement. We are normal, everyday, hard working people and that is the image we want the rest of Alabama to become accustomed to when thinking about medical marijuana and the people who use it. So again, no tye dye, no peace signs, no Bob Marley, no pot leaves.
Also: It will be VERY cold on Saturday. Snow is expected on Friday and if it does snow then the event may be postponed until Feb. 20. Same time, same place. If the event isn't postponed please dress warmly. Much of this event will take place outside and 42 degrees is cold. Coats, scarves and gloves are in order. Please dress accordingly.
If you would like to be one of the patients that is interviewed by the media then email me right away at firstname.lastname@example.org so I can coach you on what to say and what not to say.
