Cindy McCain: Drug Dealer

What is the difference between potential future First Lady
Cindy McCain and a MARIJUANA dealer?

Cindy deals a more harmful drug: ALCOHOL

That’s right, Cindy McCain — wife of presumptive presidential candidate Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) — is an alcohol dealer. As the the chairperson and majority shareholder of Hensley & Co., one of the nation’s largest distributors of Anheuser-Busch beer, she made a fortune dealing more than 23 million cases of beer last year.

Whereas selling millions of dollars worth of alcohol could land Cindy in the White House, selling just a few hundred or thousand dollars worth of marijuana continues to land countless Americans in the big house (prison, that is). This is despite the fact that marijuana is FAR less harmful than alcohol both to the user and to society.

“Cindy McCain: Drug Dealer” is a provocative new campaign designed to highlight this hypocrisy and spread the message that marijuana is safer than alcohol and should be treated that way.

Featured on the site is a short yet hilarious Web ad called “Drug-Deal-Er,” which is a play on the old Budweiser frogs commercials. (A huge thanks goes out Paul Saurini for helping us produce this great video.) Also on the site is information on Cindy McCain’s lucrative drug dealing empire, the facts about marijuana compared to alcohol, and PDFs of the Cindy “WANTED” poster that we would love to see posted everywhere!

Word of the campaign has already traveled quickly, spreading from the blogosphere (such as this piece on The Raw Story) to the mainstream media (such as this story in today’s Denver Post). We expect it will continue to grow, especially after our press conference today in front of the Hensley Cartel’s Headquarters in Phoenix, Arizona!

This is NOT an attack on Cindy McCain or alcohol!

SAFER certainly realizes the “Cindy McCain: Drug Dealer” campaign will raise some eyebrows. After all, that’s the point. But we trust you — and the public in general — will understand that this is NOT a personal attack on Cindy McCain and it is certainly not a partisan thing (as you may recall, SAFER also labeled Denver’s Democratic brewpub-owning mayor John Hickenlooper a “Drug Dealer”).

Cindy is proud of her job and her industry, and alcohol use and sales are widely accepted in this country. Why is highlighting them an “attack” or negative in any way? In fact, we hope to get the public and the media thinking about just why it seems so crazy to call someone who sells alcohol a “drug dealer,” whereas there seems to be no problem using the term for those who sell marijuana.

We should also point out that SAFER is NOT attacking alcohol. As we’ve said time and time again, we respect the right of adults to use alcohol responsibly. We are simply standing up for the millions of Americans our government punishes and considers criminals just because they make the SAFER choice to use marijuana for relaxation and recreation.




PLEASE FORWARD this message widely!

Many thanks to Steve Kubby for forwarding this to LFV!

  1. As a recovering drug addict — I’m addicted to the drug mentioned above — I think this is pretty darn clever.

  2. “Cindy McCain: Drug Dealer, Drug User, Prohibitionist Death and Prison Dealer…”

    …Orvetti is right. This is good propaganda. After all, her embryonic philosophy of a husband is a raging drug warrior.

    …And let’s not forget the prescription painkillers that Cindy stole from the nonprofit orgs she worked for. Since Cindy isn’t in jail, but a whole truckload of poor black folks are, McCain should not be considered presidential material.

    He has failed to “lead” on ending prohibition.

    The McCains believe… …For me, but not for thee!

    Cindy McCain escaped prosecution for stealing/using drugs

    The Arizona Republic, August 24, 1994 — “Cindy McCain, the wife of U.S. Republican Sen. John McCain of Arizona, admitted in a series of media interviews Monday that she became addicted to the painkillers Percocet and Vicodin. She said that she used the drugs from 1989 to 1992 and acknowledged that she had stolen some pills from the American Voluntary Medical Team, a charitable organization of which she is president . . . at one point, McCain, 40, was ingesting 15 to 20 pills a day . . . the normal dosage for seriously ill patients is 6 to 10 a day for a short period.”

    The Phoenix Gazette, August 25, 1994 — “Cindy McCain was investigated recently by the Drug Enforcement Administration for stealing and using Percocet and Vicodin, both narcotic painkillers from her aid organization . . . the county attorney’s report provides a window to drug dealings within Cindy McCain’s nonprofit corporation . . . Gosinski also alleged that Cindy McCain abused her husband’s office and diplomatic privileges by transporting illegal substances overseas. He also claimed, according to her lawyers, that Cindy McCain tried to prevent him from providing accurate information to the DEA.”

    Playboy, July 1999. — “Ms. McCain admitted stealing Percocet and Vicodin from the American Voluntary Medical Team, an organization that aids Third World countries. Percocet and Vicodin are schedule 2 drugs, in the same legal category as opium. Each pill theft carries a penalty of one year in prison and a monetary fine.” However, McCain did not face prosecution. She was allowed to enter a pretrial diversion program and escaped with no blemish to her record. Source: James Bovard, Prison Sentences of the Politically Connected.

    These fucking bastards trying to run our country into the ground are identical to the Soviet pull-peddlers who bled their fellow men dry, and then fed on the corpses of their ruined businesses.

    Why should Cindy McCain have a get out of jail free card, because she cries on her hubby and repeats after the state prosecutor “Drugs are bad, Just say no!”?

    That doesn’t usually work if you’re a 20 year old black male, with no goddamned money.

    What does being rich and white have to do with sentencing?

    Our country is a pale shadow of America, brough low by political parasites, too numerous to count.

  3. I just wish that folks like this would learn that animation and flash crap may be “hip” and “trendy” but they also make a website hostile to many browsers – don’t lock out potential viewers, keep at least the parts of the site that don’t REQUIRE flash and other proprietary non W3C standards compliant technology in a form that is universally acceptable.

    ART

  4. IF THE ACTUAL MAYOR OF WASHINGTON DC. MR. MARION BERRY COULD NOT HIMSELF BENEFIT FROM THE FIASCO, WHAT MAKES ANYONE THINK THE JOHN MACCAIN’S WIFE CINDY COULD GET SO FAR AWAY WITH OR WITHOUT HER HUSBAND TAKING UP FOR HER? SINCE MR. BERRY;S OWN STAFF IN LATE 90’S BETRAYED HIS CONFIDENCE, WAT WAS THE PURPOSE. ? SHOW OF UNTRUSTINESS?JEASLOUSY?ENVY OR PURE RACIST HATE? TODAY OUR US CONGRESS HAS SO MUCH LOWERED THE PENALTY FOR THIS AND ALSO LOWERED CHARGES LIKE CYNDE MOSHCAINE, THAT ALL HE HAD TO DO WAS HOLD OUT UNTIL BUSH CAME OFF THE MOUNTAIN WITH THE JUDGEMENTS. TEA PARTY ANYONE?
