The exhaust won't 'catch you a buzz' but the car is creating one amongst hemp activists and environmentalists. It's a car powered by hemp seed oil and it will be touring the country to promote drug-law reform and environmental fuel technologies.

Grayson Sigler and Kellie Ogilvie created the project to demonstrate the utility of hemp to car crazy Americans. They are embarking on a 10,000 mile journey around the continent beginning in Washington D.C. on July 4, 2001. 'We've been pleasantly surprised by the attention the car is getting,' says Ogilvie.

Sam's Journey Animation - NORML

NORML and the NORML Foundation are proud to announce the release of our first major Internet viral animation project. It¹s called Sam's Journey.

I think you¹ll enjoy this funny and poignant 90-second animation and will want to forward it on to ALL of your like-minded friends, family and co-workers. In fact, the only way the project can be successful is for you to pass the animation around.

Please don't Bogart Sam's Journey. Pass it around, and as always, thanks for the terrific support you provide NORML!

Rhode Island just became the 11th state to legalize medical marijuana so this year is already shaping up to be a dynamic one for marijuana law reform.
