Sioux Falls Free Thinkers
December 2014 Newsletter #037
Four weeks of December report.

In December we had 3 meetings. One at the Golden Bowl Chinese Restaurant, one in the Community Room at the Main Public Library, and one at Skelly's Pub. At these meetings we discussed the wording for the Anti-Domestic Violence billboard campaign planned for March, the Legalize Medical Marijuana campaign planned for January, the positive benefits of medical marijuana, the adverse health effects of overuse of marijuana (such as abnormal brain development in those less than 18 years old and diminished lifetime achievement), the negative health effects of space travel (human beings have not evolved to do without earth's gravity), and advanced physics concepts such as higher dimensions, space-time, quantum reality, deep time, the big bang, relativity, probability, and catastrophe theory. Lots of food for thought for open minds and excellent contributions by all involved.

On January 5th we will be putting up 12 billboards promoting the legalization of Medical Marijuana. Six will go up back to back and across from each other on 12th street, five will go up back to back and across from each other on Minnesota avenue and one electronic billboard will go up at 10th street and South Cliff avenue. The Medical Marijuana billboard campaign will last six weeks. The electronic billboard will use a back to back display concept new to Sioux Falls. Drivers and riders will first see the main campaign message followed by an embedded message of one of the 6 main benefits of Medical Marijuana. The campaign message directs people to call their legislators. The entire 6 week sequence can be seen below.

As part of the Legalize Medical Marijuana campaign we are offering to match funds for 20 car top signs. Twenty Lighted magnetic car top signs cost $120 each. If 20 supporters of Legalizing Medical Marijuana put up $60 each, and promise to use the signs, Sioux Falls Free Thinkers will match those funds and purchase the following car top sign for each contributor. These very visible signs could have a significant impact on the success of the Legalize Medical Marijuana campaign.
