A group of die-hard drug warriors who plan to gather Monday for a stop-pot conference in Southern California have decided to move their event because they claim they're worried about supposedly crazed, violent pedophile potheads. According to organizers of the 2013 National Marijuana Policy and Strategy Conference, a planned protest by drug-law reformers "threatens kids and safety."
"The drug legalization crowd is well known for being hostile and at times, outright dangerous," organizers claimed. "The many videos found on you tube by pot groups, including the shooting at a Denver pot event earlier this year is yet more proof of the radicalization of these anti-social individuals who lack common sense, patience and restraint. We have recorded and retained threatening messages and emails. ... It has also been brought to our attention that one of the key protest organizers has been investigated for child pornography. He is a concern to us all. ... As we know from research, marijuana causes significant mental problems - and we clearly do not want to be near a crowd of people with mental problems, who exhibit a failure in judgment and propensity for violence."
A Rally to End Reefer Madness is slated to kick off at 10 a.m. on Monday at Victoria Gardens in Rancho Cucamonga, which had also been the sheduled site of the stop-pot conference, before organizers decided to move it to a new, undisclosed location.
