Sarah Palin, Pot Advocate?

Nevadans for Sensible Marijuana Laws (NSML) has offered former Republican vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin $25,000 to speak at one of their upcoming events.

Palin, who gave the keynote address at the national convention for the Wine & Spirits Wholesalers of America this Tuesday, seems like a logical choice to NSML’s Campaign Manager Dave Schwartz.

“It makes no sense to keep marijuana in the criminal market while a former vice-presidential candidate celebrates the alcohol industry,” Schwartz said. “We want legitimate businesspeople in Nevada to benefit from the sales of marijuana, and we want adults to be free to choose whichever substance they prefer –marijuana or alcohol — when they relax after work.”

Schwartz also argues that while alcohol is blamed for thousands of deaths every year, marijuana is blamed for zero. He thinks Palin should have no qualms about endorsing marijuana.

Yet Schwartz shouldn’t get his hopes up; according to, the former Alaska Governor charges at least $75,000 per speaking engagement.

    I have some sites you can use for advertising: (jobs, apartments, lawyers, doctors and clinics) (Related to two magazines.)
    – Cannabis Connoisseur
    – Grow Magazine

    I will be launching a media campaign this month that will highlight the websites and the magazines I’m associated with before a plethora of cannabis industry professional and consumers.

    I will be contacting every company in North America that is actively pursuing new clients and business contacts, so the interest in your (story, ad, business) will be tremendous. I will also be running ad’s on websites that receive regular global traffic.

    I have had 10 years working experience in marketing, sales, media relations, public speaking, networking, and finance.

    I am a licensed medical marijuana patient, and I have spent the last three years helping potential patients obtain their medical marijuana licenses. I now work as a writer, publicist, and freelance marketing agent.

    I look forward to hearing back from you, and wish you luck with your future cannabis related endeavors.
