Re: Kellogg's Should Reinstate Phelps as Spokesperson

After having read several comments from Shane, I think here's what needs to happen:
Phelps should dedicate himself to being a proud spokesman for marijuana legalization.
I may have missed it, but did Phelps ever say "I smoke pot, I enjoy it, and I think it should be legal"?
As an Olympic champion, that makes him a national hero. He should use that status, and the connections he's made, to lobby for changes in the law.
If the majority of the public is pro-pot, there should be sufficient pressure to change the laws.
Problem is, too many of these people don't want to spend time or energy on getting the law changed. They just want to smoke their pot and whine, in private or when anonymous.
To those that do feel strongly about changes to the law and actually do work to get it changed... whether I agree or not... I support your energy and commitment to the cause.
