This teleconference should be live posted on every site concerned with repealing prohibition of Mj. There is nothing like bringing all factions together...also on each site versus having each needing to go to the teleconference. Also I would say the spread of notice would be multifold.

Perhaps the one most disparaging situations is the differing opinions on how to proceed in the elimination of Mj from the 'Drug War' target list.

This teleconference is a stroke of genius and no doubt way past due. Utilize it in the most viable way possible.
