Most people realize that passing Amendment 2 in Florida, is the key to bringing medical marijuana to millions of needy patients in all of our southern states.
What few people understand, is that the Senior Vote will Make or Break Amendment 2.
It's very simple. Seniors make up the vast majority of those that will actually vote in a bi-election year. Millions of senior voters will vote at polling booths right in the senior communities where they live, or will be bused to the polls.
That's where The Silver Tour comes in. For the past four years, The Silver Tour has successfully convinced millions of seniors to demand "Safe Legal Access" to medical marijuana. We did this with live Silver Tour Shows, our TV show "Should Grandma Smoke Pot?" and by bringing bus loads of seniors to the House of Representatives in Washington DC.
Why the Radio?
No other media can reach so many people that need to hear the truth about medical marijuana. Every community now has hundreds of TV stations. That makes it too difficult and too expensive to reach a large audience. But most cities and towns only have one or two radio stations people listen to while they work or drive. That makes it easy to target a large senior audience with a brief potent message. A message that will expose the lies of the anti-marijuana crowd and ally the fears of too easily frightened seniors.
Twelve Critical Messages
It's important to answer lies with well documented and sourced truth. Here are five of the twelve messages the Silver Tour plans to air in every market in Florida. Two of these spots aired 55 times last week on WIOD the top talk radio station in Miami. They were heard locally on Rush Limbaugh, Glen Beck and the talk shows that influence the seniors.
