The above Animation is on the Social and Economic Costs of Marijuana Prohibition depiting it thru a Flower..easy thing to do with the help of medical marajuana! I think weed is finally getting to a point where people are learning facts about it and starting to shut the fuck up.The  “Flower” animation, while not officially tied to any organization, is being promoted by drug policy reform advocates.

Sometimes a cartoon can be worth a thousand words. Award winning artist Haik Hoisington has created an animation called the “The Flower” that contrasts a society that legally produces and consumes a pleasure- giving flower with a society where the same flower is illegal and prohibited. The animation reflects on the social and economic costs of marijuana prohibition.

The Flower comes as the debate around marijuana prohibition is reaching an unprecedented level of prominence and sophistication. A perfect storm has contributed to the popularity of the animation’s message — the brutal violence in Mexico, the record number of marijuana arrests in the United States, the budget crisis facing many states, and the fact that California will be voting in November on whether to control and tax marijuana.

“I’m excited to see “The Flower” spread across the internet so quickly,” said Haik Hoisington. “I hope it serves as a useful tool for ending marijuana prohibition and inspires people in California to vote YES on Prop. 19.”

The Flower is not the first animation by Haik to take on the failed drug war. In 2007 the Drug Policy Alliance and Haik put out the animation “Incarcerex,” a humorous parody on a pharmaceutical ad that shows elected officials promoting the war on drugs as a misguided re-election strategy. Since then, the tables have started to turn. These days, politicians rarely brag about their drug warrior credentials, while Democratic strategists now consider marijuana legalization as one of the most effective ways for them to get voters out to the polls.

The Animation was made by me in blender C4D and After effects I used copyright free sounds and you may use this video if you put a link to my channel.

The Flower contrasts a utopian society that freely farms and consumes a pleasure giving flower with a society where the same flower is illegal and its consumption is prohibited. The animation is a meditation on the social and economic costs of marijuana prohibition.

“For years we have been pointing out that the violence tied to the drug trade, whether in Mexico or in the U.S., is not a result of the plant itself. Rather, it is an inevitable consequence of prohibition,” said Tony Newman of the Drug Policy Alliance. “Without using one word, “The Flower” is able to portray the harms of prohibition in a creative and impactful way.”

Here is a ppicture that i got off of norml.org that shows how much revenue that our country can get if we legalize weed then sell it with a tax it will bring us out of the deppresion and boost our economy.
