Washington, D.C. -- The voice of Oakland's Angel Raich might soon be emanating from radios near and far as medical marijuana advocates launch a nationwide advertising blitz.The Marijuana Policy Project on Monday sent CDs with 30- and 60-second spots to 1,000 radio stations from coast to coast.
The campaign includes ads with Raich, a plaintiff in the recently decided U.S. Supreme Court case, and television talk show host Montel Williams speaking about how medical marijuana has helped them survive serious illnesses. Raich uses marijuana for a variety of maladies, including a wasting syndrome, while Williams uses it to control symptoms of multiple sclerosis. Another pair of spots features novelist Tom Robbins describing his mother's battle with glaucoma. "We are proud to partner with these three distinguished Americans to bring a message of hope  and accurate information  to patients and those who love and care for them," said MPP communications director Bruce Mirken. Although the Supreme Court ruled federal authorities can enforce the federal marijuana ban even in the 10 states with medical marijuana laws, Rhode Island lawmakers have just passed a medical marijuana bill that could get a gubernatorial signature this week.
