Conspirator Join Amplify to Support Drug Policy Reform

The Disco Biscuits side project Conspirator has announced a new partnership with Students for Sensible Drug Policy’s Amplify Project, an initiative designed to build support for drug policy reform and harm reduction within the live music community. A statement from the organization reads:

Its been a longtime coming but we could NOT be more excited to announce Conspirator as our newest partnered artist!

Marc Brownstein has been a vocal supporter of progressive reform & done more to mobilize the live music community towards getting involved in the political process than most by co-founding HeadCount in 2004. We are indescribably excited to have him & the rest of the band on board to further increase our lineup of conscious, caring musicians.

Many of Conspirator’s upcoming shows will now feature Amplify tables, where fans will be able to learn more about the growing drug policy reform movement.

Students for Sensible Drug Policy is an international grassroots network of students who are dedicated to reforming drug policy in the U.S. and abroad. Additional bands working with the organization’s Amplify Project include Slightly Stoopid, Lotus, EOTO, Big Gigantic and many more. For a full list of participating artists, visit the Amplify website..

Hey somebody tell Brownstain this won’t help legalize DMT or 2CI? His blood is 29% ketamine, 50% liquid acid and the rest platelets I heard.

He has children February 25, 2014, 12:01:33

So does Marc realize he has kids that can read? Generally parents should try to keep their kids away from drugs or being drug law activists when they are young. Parents provide the best guide for a child usually, but what happens when a parent is just a grown child? Then again who are we to Judge. Its quite possible the formula bottle has always been GHB for them.

Nonsense. Parents have a responsibility to educate their children, not scare the crap out of them with baseless assertions. Say what you will about Brownie, but the guy clearly understand that our War on Drugs is a greater danger to his children than the drugs themselves. SSDP and Amplify promote harm reduction strategies that can go a long way toward preventing needless overdose deaths while treating addiction like the health (not criminal) issue that it is. This is nothing but commendable.

An educated person would say he is being a ‘model parent’ by showing initiative, providing and leading. Carrying thru on your beliefs, convictions and knowledge. So who the heck is anyone to judge a mans private life, which happens to be a good example – not poor as stated above. And lastly, importantly; who are you to judge nor remotely suggest a person would spike a baby formula and such, you are truly crossing a well defined line. In all respect. Back to the jam in jam bands … ‘Think before you link’ –
