Drug lawyer's "peace pipe" ad

A posting on the Last Real Indians Facebook page:Thanks to several LRI readers who gave us a heads up to this disgusting campaign ad for Chad Moody who is running for governor of Oklahoma on a pro-pot legalization platform.

It is absolutely unacceptable to cheapen the cannunpa in such derogatory fashion. Contact his office at the web address below.


Some reactions from commenters:Seems to come straight out of a 19th century piece of propaganda...sad to see in this day and age...ignorance or arrogance? Or both...?

Dum, why can't they understand we are not living in the past. Move forward and respect the past, honor it. Not make us feel we are not human because we have rights.

No, no, no. This is what happens when you do not ask an elder for permission. It would have been explained out of respect. Why, why why.

Thanks for the heads-up. I live in Oklahoma and know a number of people who've used Chad. I'm going to contact him and make sure he hears from other local folks as well.
