Are you as freaked out as the rest of us about what is going to happen on January 20th when Donald Trump is sworn in as President of these here United States? One group has the solution for all the jitters and anxiety, the Washington D.C. Cannabis Coalition recommends getting baked! The group plans to spend the days leading up to the Inauguration rolling and packaging 4,200 joints that they intend to distribute.
The goal of handing out this much free weed is that those in attendance of Mr. Trump’s speech will engage in an act of peaceful protest, and in unison light up the joint four minutes and twenty seconds into the speech. The group’s reasoning behind this plan is that Trump and other politicians need a less subtle reminder that the people of this nation have spoken out in favor of the legalization of cannabis.
The Coalition wants Trump to keep in mind that the progress that has been made in the majority of the country in regards to legal cannabis – at least on a medicinal level – should remain on course, and states should be allowed to decide for themselves whether or not to allow the herb.
Whether or not this is an effective form of public speech remains to be seen, but we will be interested to see exactly how everything goes down. We do know that the group will begin marching at 8 AM, leaving from the Dupont Circle and heading down to the National Mall in time for the speech, and will be handing out joints along the way.
Hopefully everything works out and their message is successfully conveyed and received in kind. Hopefully this doesn’t incite any violence or negative results for the cause. I honestly have no idea what to expect. We’ll keep you updated with more news about the event as it becomes available, so check back here for more!
