Pro-pot sluggers dominating congressional softball league

I found this article very interesting.

The Raw Story | Pro-pot sluggers dominating congressional softball league


The top spot in a Congressional softball league belongs to drug reform advocates who are "busting the stoners-as-slackers stereotype," Roll Call reports.

The "One Hitters," took over the No. 1 spot in the Congressional Softball League last week, and the team fielded by Students for a Sensible Drug Policy and NORML holds a 13-3 record in the league comprised of lobbyists, Capitol Hill aides and interest group employees.

"Kris Krane, executive director of Students for a Sensible Drug Policy and the softball team’s captain, chalks up its success to the five years the team has been playing together — and a little extra motivation that comes from trying to dispel the myth that folks who want marijuana legalized are all munchie-craving, lava-lamp-gazing losers," reports Roll Call's Heard on the Hill gossip column.

This is the One Hitters' fifth year in the intramural softball league, and the team previously made headlines when the Office of National Drug Control Policy refused to face them on the field two years ago.

“Everyone knows that ONDCP backed out because they were scared of losing to us on the field, much the same way they are afraid to debate us because their policies fail in the court of public opinion,” said center fielder David Guard, who is associate director of the Drug Reform Coordination Network. “We have an open challenge to the Drug Czar to play or debate anytime, anywhere.”

The team's next game is Tuesday against the "No Talent AZ Clowns," whose players come from the offices of Arizona Sens. John McCain and Jon Kyl.

Interesting. I'll be in DC sometime in September, if the season's not over (or if they're in the lobbyist playoffs or world series) I'll try to get to one of their games. Any ideas about where they play, or how much it costs or any of that?

I wonder if the ONDCP ever had a public explanation as to why they wouldn't play the One Hitters.

He needs to learn that lil Larry will never be the same again after this painful intrusion. Larry's family asks for privacy and respect while they cope with this tragic molestation.
