The D.C. Cannabis Coalition has announced it will handing out free “joints” during President-elect Trump’s inaugural ceremony.
The Cannabis Coalition will be marching from Dupont Circle to the National Mall, where Trump will be sworn in, on the morning of the inauguration in an effort to push for the legalization of marijuana on the federal level.
The plan, according to the coalition, is to hand out 4,200 “gifts” and light them up 4 minutes and 20 seconds into Trump’s inauguration speech, a play on 420, which is code for pot in pop culture.
While it is legal in D.C. to distribute pot, smoking at the inauguration would be illegal.
Adam Eidinger, the Coalition founder, spoke with WUSA News and stated, “The main message is it’s time to legalize cannabis at the federal level.”
