Marijuana Majority website boosts Amendment 64 with power of celebrity, social media

Last week, we noted that actress Susan Sarandon is voicing robocalls on behalf of Amendment 64, the Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol Act. Now, a new website, MarijuanaMajority.com, is pushing such measures here and elsewhere using the words of other notables who've questioned drug policy, including Fox News' Bill O'Reilly, seen here. And the man behind the site thinks social media pressure will lead to more recruits.
