DON'T BE AFRAID
or
HAPPY PRESIDENTS DAY!!!!

I noticed lately that a few of my close friends have "unliked" my Legalize it - the film - fan page on facebook. I called them up to figure out why and they told me they realized that LIKING a film's FB page about legalizing pot could hurt them at work... (Especially since they're friends with their bosses on Facebook). They said they support my film - but -are afraid of being associated with a Facebook fan page called LEGALIZE. Funny, huh? Legalize comes from the word LEGAL - and when people are afraid of the word LEGAL - not to mention - people are afraid of liking a FILM's fan page on Facebook - that says something about a society... especially one that cherishes the idea of free speech!!! For all my friends who aren't afraid - please help our film by getting your friends to like this film's page. Maybe if enough people show they're not afraid of a film's page on Facebook - people will see there's nothing to be afraid of and as more people won't be afraid to LIKE this page- the cycle of fear will be broken. Happy Presidents day everyone! Remember the words of Thomas Jefferson: "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."

And for all those wanting to become friends of the film:
