Change the Climate, the drug policy reform group that has tangled with transit authorities in Boston and Washington, D.C., over its ads criticizing the war on drugs, is causing a stir with a new set of messages in D.C.'s Metro system. "Enjoy better sex!" says a poster featuring a man holding a woman in his arms. "Legalize and tax marijuana."
"Like other advertisers," Change the Climate founder Joseph White told the Drug Reform Coordination Network, "we're using sex, but we're using it as an opportunity to get people thinking about marijuana and marijuana policy issues, not sell products."
