I have no idea what to make of these ads:
(H/t Andrew Sullivan.)
But it’s not a parody. It’s apparently a real ad for the upcoming elections in Israel on February 10 resulting from the political alliance between the Holocaust Survivors Party and the Green Leaf Graduates party. The older party wanted to reach out to younger Israelis and the pro-marijuana party wanted to be taken seriously. The fact that I’m writing about it demonstrates that it’s created a significant amount of buzz.
The best line:
For us, the Holocaust survivors, our obligation is to legalize it [marijuana].
I don’t follow the logic, even if I support the cause.
