|This is one of two different billboards that went up today in Florida as part of a push for the passage of medical marijuana in the state.|
This billboard greeted motorists on a busy Florida highway after being unveiled Tuesday morning.
It’s one of two giant 48-foot billboards urging passage of medical marijuana for Floridians which Charles Stroud donated. Both are placed on Pompano, Florida’s busiest thoroughfare, Sample Road.
The billboards, donated by disabled Pennsylvania truck driver Stroud to The Silver Tour, are part of a push for the passage of medical marijuana in the Sunshine State, according to founder Robert Platshorn, who also directs Florida NORML.
The Silver Tour is a nonprofit organization dedicated to educating senior voters about medical marijuana. Platshorn is the man who convinced Rep. Jeff Clemens to file the state’s first bill for medical marijuana.
The Silver Tour has been doing live shows at senior communities and reform Temples in South Florida. The shows feature doctors, nurses, patients, lawyers and politicians who support legalizing medicinal cannabis.
More live shows and billboards are planned to support The Silver Tour’s soon-to-come infomercial on TV stations and cable networks across Florida. After that, plans are to take the campaign national.
