On Jan. 20, 2017, attendees of Donald Trump’s inauguration in Washington, D.C., may get free joints, or at least a contact high, at the presidential ceremony.
DCMJ, a district-based marijuana advocacy organization, has announced that advocates are meeting on Dupont Circle’s west side at 8 a.m. on Inauguration Day; then, at 10 a.m., DCMJ will lead a parade of marijuana advocates to the National Mall, passing out 4,200 joints of district-grown marijuana on the way to the main event.
According to DCMJ, “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!)” Accordingly, DCMJ has dubbed the event #Trump420.
“We are forced to do this type of publicity stunt because the Trump administration hasn’t mentioned marijuana once since he was elected,” said Adam Eidinger, DCMJ’s founder, told The Washington Times. “It reminds people that the public wants change, and the politicians aren’t doing it.”
