Hundreds Inhale Pot at Surreal White House Protest

When the smoke cleared, nobody was arrested for participating in a large and blatantly illegal marijuana smoke-in outside the White House.

Attendees of the Saturday event, billed as “Reschedule 420” by the D.C. Cannabis Campaign, urged President Barack Obama to take action in his remaining months in office to reschedule marijuana — to allow greater research into its medicinal value — and to pardon jailed pot offenders.

Though many were willing to get arrested, it appeared that just two people, seemingly chosen at random from a smoke-filled crowd, were detained by police. One of them, Lauren Dove, who recently moved to the nation’s capital from Colorado, said both received $25 public consumption tickets.

Dove says the police, who were from the local Metropolitan Police Department, not the also on-site U.S. Secret Service or U.S. Park Police, emptied her ceramic bowl of marijuana, which she says they took as evidence. But they allowed her to keep the bowl.

      The so-called “War on Drugs” along with mandatory minimum sentencing has already filled our prisons to overflowing. Your plan would require a hefty tax increase to build more prisons and hire more lawyers to defend your plan in court. I seriously doubt you’re will to pay that much extra!

    We have to assume that our POTUS was also there to enjoy a drag!

    It has been on the minds of many people, that Obama will create a major situation, so that the 2016 election will NOT take place, therefore extending his stay in the Whitehouse indefinitely, there is also chatter that the FBI knows of at least 28 cells of the Islamic extremist group in the USA, Trump knows more then he can tell us without creating a massive run on money, guns, and food. Why do you think the DEMS and the GOP want him out? He knows too much, and is not for the Establishment, he wants the USA to be what it used to be, FREE, and for the people by the people.

      We have not hit bottom yet – the Pretender in Chief still has 10 months to write EOs and wait until he writes his “pardoning list”.

    Just more proof of how low the standards have been lowered for the black house! Obama continues to degrade the U.S., no wonder he is the laughing stock of the world!
