Okay, Rose McGowan has officially won my respect. Also, Adam Sandler is a sexist creep? I’m so shocked! His movies were so progressive and filled with such strong female characters!

You know the biggest problem with the whole “Vote with your wallet” idea?
Your not telling the reason you aren’t buying it!

If I ran a business that made apple sauce and people stopped buying apple sauce because they were “Voting with their wallets”, I could make up any old reason to my share holders why it wasn’t selling.
“People though it was too chunky” “too sweet” “Our competitor is cheaper” “People are just not interested”. I could come up with a million reasons that could be “proven” by looking at which competitor got most of my former customers.
All depends how informed my shareholders are, and how easy it would be to spin coincidences.

The real reason could be that I was treating my employees like shit, I was polluting a river, I made an offensive public remark, exc.

So yeah just “Voting with your wallet” alone is absolutely useless. Don’t use it to send your message, use it to AMPLIFY your message. Make sure your message can be found.

Paul is first major-party candidate to court pot donors

DENVER (AP) — Republican presidential candidate Rand Paul courted donors from the new marijuana industry Tuesday, making the Kentucky senator the first major-party presidential candidate to publicly seek support from the legal weed business.

Paul’s fundraiser at the Cannabis Business Summit — tickets started at $2,700, the maximum donation allowed for the primary contest — came as the marijuana industry approached its first presidential campaign as a legal enterprise.

The candidate entered the closed-door fundraiser through a private hallway, instead of visiting the convention floor or meeting pot business owners who weren’t donating to him. In public remarks after the fundraiser, Paul didn’t mention marijuana and didn’t take questions from most reporters.

During an interview with The Denver Post after the fundraiser, Paul also declined to answer whether he would have voted in favor of legalizing recreational marijuana in Colorado.

“I think I see it just more from a federal perspective,” he said. “And I think the federal government ought to stay out.”

Many of the 40 or so people who attended the fundraiser called his appearance at the summit a milestone. The campaign did not release fundraising totals.

“This is a historical moment, that our industry is now working together with a presidential candidate,” said Tripp Keber, owner of Denver-based Dixie Elixirs, which makes cannabis-infused sodas and sweets.

Another fundraiser attendee, Mitzi Vaughn of Seattle, managing attorney for Greenbridge Corporate Counsel, which caters to pot businesses, said Paul criticized drug war-era policies.

“Most of us, despite what others think, are in this to end the drug war,” Vaughn said.

Though legal weed business owners have been active political donors for years, presidential candidates have so far shied away from holding fundraisers made up entirely of marijuana-related entrepreneurs.

Former Republican New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson held a fundraiser with the Drug Policy Alliance in 2012 before leaving the GOP and running as a third-party candidate. But that event came before recreational pot was legal in any state.

“It really speaks to how important this issue is and how far it’s come,” said Mason Tvert, a spokesman for the Marijuana Policy Project, a major sponsor of legalization campaigns in Colorado, Washington and other states.

“We’re seeing officials at the local, state and now federal level recognize this is now a legitimate industry, just like any other legal industry in many facets,” Tvert said.

Paul has embraced state marijuana experiments, while other candidates have either taken a wait-and-see approach or expressly vowed to challenge state legalization efforts.

Paul has joined Democrats in the Senate to sponsor a bill to end the federal prohibition on the use of medical marijuana. He also backs an overhaul of federal drug-sentencing guidelines, along with a measure to allow marijuana businesses to access banking services.

US encouraged by Narendra Modi's pro-business reforms

Washington, June 30 (IANS) Expressing support for “pro-business reforms” undertaken by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his commitment to fighting corruption, the US has said it encouraged all governments, including India, to address the issue of corruption.


“Speaking generally, we’re supportive,” State Department spokesman Mark Toner told reporters Monday when asked if Washington thought if US investments will be safe in India in view of recent action taken against NGOs in India.

“I can say Prime Minister Modi’s pro-business reforms, including his commitment to fighting corruption and - as well as his public remarks, I think, recently and regarding improving India’s position in the World Bank’s Ease of Doing Business report - these are initiatives that clearly take time to implement.”

“But certainly private companies, whether they’re US or other nationalities, look at the investment climate when they’re thinking about investing somewhere, and obviously, corruption plays into that evaluation and assessment,” he said.

“So certainly corruption’s never a good thing, and we encourage all governments, including India, to address it,” Toner added.

Asked how can be assured of a crackdown on corruption in India in view of New Delhi’s silence in the case of Lalit Modi, the spokesman said:

“Well, again, I would just say we’ve been encouraged by some of the reforms that he’s pledged to undertake, Prime Minister Modi.”

“We’ll see how they’re implemented. This obviously is not something that can be done overnight. But more broadly speaking, corruption’s always a concern. So any government should address it,” he said.

As for NGOs, Toner said: “We remain concerned about difficulties caused to civil society organizations, NGOs, by the manner in which the Foreign Contributions Regulation Act has been applied.”

“Obviously, more broadly, we support civil society throughout the world, and we believe ardently that a vibrant civil society actually strengthens democratic institutions and culture, and it certainly gives voice to all - or for all to express their views,” he said.

“So we support a strong civil society, and certainly non-governmental organizations, NGOs, are part of that process,” Toner said.
