Probably one of the biggest untapped social networks in this country could be found in the connections between people who use illicit drugs and the people who supply it to them. Most people who smoke pot have one guy who gets them what they want, and typically this person deals with a larger network of customers. Those people have upstream suppliers or grow-ops and the chain goes up and down… blah blah blah, I’m sure you get the point.
Anyways, I am betting that there is at least one smart drug dealer out there who is stapling some form of propaganda on their goods, for whatever reason. Can you imagine how many likes the Just Say Now facebook campaign would have if only a small percentage of web-savvy marijuana industrialists in some major cities decided to act out against the state’s criminalization of their business in a rather novel fashion? Just Say Now is the most recent group out there and it has over 11,000 likes already since August, but don’t forget about NORML, which has 210,000 but has a more established (read, lumbersome) organization. Really, anyone is free to co-opt this and just have fun with it.
I know I’m going to let my dealer know about the magic of staples.
