PHILADELPHIA – Marijuana has gone mainstream at the Democratic National Convention this week.
On July 25, 2016, activists marched down the streets of Philadelphia toward the Democratic National Convention with a 51-foot inflatable joint in tow to advocate for the legalization of marijuana.
Not wanting their protests during the Democratic National Convention to go up in smoke, the men who pushed for the decriminalization of marijuana in Philadelphia informally met with two of the city’s police supervisors.
On July 9, 2016, the Democratic Party endorsed an amendment in its party platform for the removal of marijuana from the list of Schedule I narcotics in the Controlled Substances Act, as well as providing a path for the federal legalization of marijuana.
