Last night we had the first night of our contest to name FDL’s marijuana campaign. We were going to have the semifinal voting tonight, but I changed my mind.

I’m having too much fun being back at Late Nite again, and Mike Whitney decided he wanted to expand the contest to everyone on our email list, so we’re continuing the contest for a second inspired night.

I said last night that first prize would be a DVD of High: The True Tale of American Marijuana, second prize would be a copy of copy of Marijuana is Safer: So Why Are We Driving People to Drink, and that I’d come up with a third prize by tonight.

Instead, we have a SPECIAL PRIZE FOR EVERYONE just for playing…co-author of Marijuana is Safer, Steve Fox of the Marijuana Policy Project, emailed me say that they’re offering a FREE DOWNLOAD of the book to everyone until midnight tonight in honor of the contest!

As Steve says, “the book is a primer on marijuana advocacy in general, including an overview of the history of prohibition, as well as the strongest traditional arguments in favor of reform and responses to the traditional arguments against reform.”

Since we’re going to be doing a lot more around pot in the coming months, take advantage of this great opportunity, say thanks to Steve for this incredibly generous offer, and download away.

Then join me in the comments for a second night of competition.  Entries must be five words or less in length and entered here to qualify.   Below are the inspired entries from last night.  Oh and if anyone has ideas for second and third prize, lemme know.
