If you’ve been on Twitter any amount of time, you’ve become accustomed to the use of hashtags. You may have even come across these tags being utilized to focus a conversation around a particular topic — not just to categorize the content of a tweet.
Over the course of our experience with Twitter, we’ve noticed a camaraderie of sorts amongst cannabis legalization advocates, who most frequently tag their cannabis related tweets with #MMOT. Despite this being one of the more popular hashtags on Twitter, as typical of stoners, not a one of us has taken the time to organize a weekly chat centered around the discussion of cannabis legalization. We think the time has now come and propose a weekly #WeedChat on Fridays at 4:20 PM Pacific. ( A special thanks to Evil Weed for sharing this information and starting #WeedChat).
Last Friday, 8/2/09 was the kickoff date for #WeedChat and the discussion was both lively and very informative. All the members of #WeedChat, a still growing community of legalization advocates, invite anyone that would be interested in the future of legalizing marijuana to join in the discussion this Friday at 4:20 PM Pacific.
If you have questions, jot them down and have them ready for the discussion. Again, we are looking for people with a genuine interest in discussing the legalization of marijuana, not just a general discussion about smoking marijuana.
Here is the link for the #WeedChat Twub where you can join and even find embeddable widgets to keep your blog followers up to speed on the discussion.
