Facebook founders chip in for marijuana legalization

Written by Nedim Hadzic

The planet's favorite past time created by potheads?

We’re not sure what consequences this might have on the general Facebooking public, but news broke out that Facebook co-founders Sean Parker and Dustin Moskovitz have splashed out a total of $170K to support legalization of marihuana use in California (Proposition 19 campaign).

Although many may frown, Drug Policy Alliance spokesman Stephen Gutwillig finds it very interesting that Sean Parker is a “member of the generation that really gets it” and adds how he’s “pivotal to the future of drug policy reform in the country.”

We’re not sure of the consequences of such a move, as many religious and overzealous morality groups floating the sea of Facebook are now in quite a pickle. On one hand, they’ve been given a great outlet to share their version of the world, universe and everything else; on the other, they’ve been given a voice by substance (ab)users, which definitely can’t help their credibility. (On the other hand, pot is cheaper than religion and it does way less harm. sub.ed.)

Naturally, when we say substance we don’t mean harmless things like coffee, cigarettes and alcohol. We mean that horrible, despicable plant that unfortunately hasn’t managed to kill anyone in about 5 thousand years it has been around.
