I absolutely hate running. I played a lot of basketball growing up, and I didn’t mind the short sprints that came with playing hoops, but just straight running is one thing that I never enjoyed. I wish I did, considering all of the health benefits of running. But a combination of having Hobbit legs (I am 5’4″) and toker lungs always made running an undesirable thing for me.
A fellow member of the short stoner men united club, my buddy Danny Danko, appears to be a much better runner than I am. He is running in the upcoming New York City Half-Marathon, and is raising money for NORML in the process. I am a very proud member of NORML and a huge fan of Danny, so I am encouraging everyone to support this effort via a donation if they are able. If you don’t have the funds right now, share the effort so that it increases the chances of a donation coming in! Below is more information about the effort, via Crowdrise (which is also where you can donate):
I’m running 13.1 miles on March 18th 2018 to raise money for the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws. NORML Foundation. The NORML Foundation, a sister organization to NORML, is a nonprofit foundation established in 1997 to better educate the public about marijuana and marijuana policy options and to assist victims of the current laws.
The NORML Foundation has been qualified as a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt foundation by the Internal Revenue Service, and donations to the foundation are tax-deductible.
The NORML Foundation sponsors public advertising campaigns designed to inform the public about the costs of marijuana prohibition and the benefits of alternative policies; distributes a weekly press release to the national media and citizen activists focusing on recent developments pertaining to marijuana research and policy; publishes a regular newsletter; provides legal assistance and support to victims of the current marijuana laws; undertakes relevant research; and hosts, with NORML, an informative website and an annual conference.
