A group of marijuana enthusiasts are going to be lighting up at the President Elects inauguration this month. The advocates lead by the organization DC Cannabis Coalition are planning on distributing 4,200 joints at the event and lighting them at exactly the 4:20 mark of his speech. Mind-blowingly enough, this is all perfectly legal under Initiative 71.
The website says:
We will gather on the west side of Dupont Circle at 8am for coffee & tea and parade down to the National Mall at 10am. Along the way we’ll hand out 4,200 joints of legally grown cannabis! At 4 minutes and 20 seconds into President Trump’s speech we’ll light up! UNLESS President Trump comes out now in support of full cannabis legalization in all 50 States and DC!”
Honestly I think this group is doing D.C. a service. I also love how causal they are about all this. They sound like a church youth group on a field trip. “We will gather on the west side of Dupont Circle at 8am for coffee & tea and parade down to the National Mall at 10am, where we will experience history!” Oh okay sounds good! ”
By the way… we’ll also be passing out 4,200 joints.
Personally I think it’d be better to hand out a bunch of free brews and shotgun on the National Mall the way Donnie T would want it, but that’s not to say I wouldn’t want to partake in this…But I just think there is a time and a place for everything and this seems like a little over the top to me because although possessing pot is legal in the capital city, smoking it on the national mall is not…
Which leads me to my next question, will this actually happen? Will they get shut down? Or will this group have a few too many doobies and oversleep this historic event.
I don’t know the answer, but we’ll find out in a week. Stay tuned, America.
