420 will be alive and well at the January 20th inauguration. Pro marijuana activist will be handing out 4,200 free joints to be lit 4 minutes and 20 seconds into Trump’s speech.
According to The Daily Caller– The DC Cannabis Coalition plans to pass out thousands of free joints on Inauguration Day to be smoked during President-elect Donald Trump’s address.
Exactly 4,200 joints will be given away to inauguration attendees, and at exactly 4 minutes and 20 seconds into Trump’s speech, all 4,200 will be lit. 420 is widely recognized as a marijuana code or symbol.
Organizers of the event are calling it a protest, but it is “certainly not an anti-Trump event, or even an attempt at disrupting the ceremony,” WUSA 9 reports.
The DC Cannabis Coalition (DCMJ), founded in 2013 by people tired of “outdated” cannabis laws in the District of Columbia, says its members plan to hand out thousands of joints for free on January 20.
The event named ‘Trump 420’ – a reference to the global cannabis celebration date of April 20 – is being held to protest marijuana’s status as illegal on a federal level in the US.
DCMJ has advised people interested in taking part in the demonstration to gather at the west side of Dupont Circle, Washington DC at 8am for “coffee and tea and parade down to the National Mall.”
“Along the way we’ll hand out 4,200 joints of legally-grown cannabis,” a statement read.
