Gathering Signatures

I spent thursday night collecting signatures for the Tax Cannibus 2010 initiative at the art walk in downtown LA. It made for an interesting night, me and two other people working together managed to get 100 signatures in two hours. Something like one in six people who walked near the booth signed. There were some odd ones who didn't sign, like a guy who wouldn't sign because he was an anarchist and didn't believe in involving himself with the government. Over all though it wasn't too hard to get signatures. 

One thing I noticed was how much the medical marijuana laws lead to the present state. From what I can see the bill was written by, and most the volunteers are affiliated with Oaksterdam University. Which mostly seems to teach classes about marijuana. Without the semi-legal status this level of organization simply would not exist.
