Hey Guys,
Here is my letter.
(wonder how many I can send?)

Hello,
How Dare You?
You malign one of the most beneficial plants on this earth.
We as humans have used this plant for food, medicine, clothing, and houses, for
thousands of years.
The natives say it is the "White Mans Buffalo" meaning if we lose it, it will be as when the natives lost their buffalo, we will become dependent on the government for everything.
You should be helping to dispel the ignorance about this wonderful plant, instead of spreading it.
How Dare You!

Marijuana Censored by Facebook: Help Us Fight Back!

Facebook Censors Marijuana - Sign the Petition

After our ads with the Just Say Now logo of a marijuana leaf ran more than 38 million times, Facebook flip-flopped and banned all images of marijuana from its ads.

Sign our petition to Facebook to protest this censorship:  http://action.firedoglake.com/page/s/censored5

    Marijuana legalization is a critical issue facing our country. Clear majorities in states across the country support legalizing marijuana.

    By censoring marijuana leaves, Facebook is banning political speech. This is unfair, and unacceptable.

    Facebook should reverse its decision and allow the free discussion of US drug policy that the country is ready for.

Add your name to the petition! We'll send the petition to Facebook and let the media know how strongly people feel about this important issue

Just Say Now, our campaign for marijuana legalization with Students for Sensible Drug Policy, ran ads promoting our campaign that showed our logo, which uses a marijuana leaf.

Despite the ad running more than 38 million times, Facebook flip-flopped and started censoring our ads and our political speech.

I won't join a bunch of censoring assholes like Facebook! I have distrusted them from the very start - and rightly so: since they are now showing their true colors!  Free Speech is welcome in MY Forums!  Sign the Petition:  http://action.firedoglake.com/page/s/censored5
