Audio archive of Paul Armentano on Tenther radio
Apparently the hosts particularly liked the following quotes from our interview:
Paul Armentano from NORML joins the Tenther gents to discuss the sound of even more dominoes falling – this time the marijuana dominoes! Could two states voting to legalize could signal the beginning of the end of marijuana prohibition?
“Without the state providing the teeth for marijuana prohibition, we are very quickly going to see marijuana prohibition unravel.” – Paul Armentano
“There is no mandate under the law whereby Colorado and Washington have to dictate their law enforcement resources go toward arresting marijuana offenders.” – Paul Armentano
“We are at a tipping point when it comes to public support for legalizing marijuana.” – Paul Armentano
At 27 minutes JM said to pick up a quote here.
“When it becomes apparent that the sky hasn’t fallen in Colorado and Washington, the whole house of cards is going to come falling down.” – Paul Armentano
“When we had 10 states saying we’re not going to enforce this policy [alcohol prohibition] at the state-wide level and basically called the government’s bluff … the federal government didn’t have the stomach for it, they didn’t have the manpower for it, they didn’t have the resources for it.” – Paul Armentano
“More people are speaking out and voicing their support for this policy and it is across all age demographics.”- Paul Armentano
“We’ve been saying for some time that the public is out ahead of the politicians … the public is ready for a new approach to marijuana” – Paul Armentano
Finally, Michael Boldin gives us a Tentherific Thanksgiving message to close out the show.
