IS CONGRESS IN A MARY JANE FOG? DC Marijuana Activists To Push Samples On Representatives

Some might say this is the reason nothing good ever gets done inside the beltway. Do you think it’s a good idea for your representatives to be smoking pot? A DC pot advocate group is going to try to push marijuana acceptance by giving out freebies on Capitol Hill.

MRCTV has the details:

Marijuana activists are planning to hand out “at least” 1,000 marijuana cigarettes to members of Congress as part of a push to remove marijuana from the Controlled Substances Act.

According to a press release on the DCMJ website, attendees of the “1st Annual Joint Session” are entitled to receive “two free marijuana joints.”

The invitation notes that the event is open for “all members of Congress, congressional staff, interns, Capitol Hill support staff, and credentialed journalists who are over 21 years of age.”

Adam Eidinger, the cofounder of DCMJ, said, “Americans don’t want a crackdown on legal cannabis—they want Congress to end cannabis prohibition once and for all.”

“It is time Congress remove cannabis from its Schedule I classification—and act. On 420, we’ll celebrate adults making informed choices based on facts, rather than propaganda,” Eidinger continued.

What about how legalization might increase usage among those under 21?

And maybe another approach might have been something to consider.

Some arrests were made during the give away.

Huffington Post summed up the event, perfectly!

Put another way, what transpired Thursday was arguably the year’s foremost gathering of Washington navel-gazers and people who literally gaze at their navels because they’re stoned out of their minds.
