As you may have read on their blog, the Marijuana Policy Project is putting together their first annual “Top 50 Most Influential Marijuana Users” list, and they want your input to determine who makes the final cut.
They’re not looking to make a list of the most popular marijuana users, nor are they looking to finalize a list of marijuana users who are the most supportive of marijuana policy reform.
Instead, they’re looking for people who are influential — even if they’re bad guys. To determine this, MPP is borrowing the great definition that Out Magazine uses for their “Power 50” list of LGBT Americans.
When you vote, they want you to choose the individuals who have the “power to influence cultural and social attitudes, political clout, individual wealth, and a person’s media profile.”
In case you were wondering, in order to qualify for the list, the individual must:
1) have used marijuana at least once;
2) be alive; and
3) must be living in the U.S. or be a U.S. citizen
Voting will be open until August 13th, so be sure to get your selections in before then, and invite your friends and family to vote, too. MPP will be releasing the final list to the news media in late August.
