Another 420 Smoke-In and Pot Giveaway on Capitol Hill
This year’s 4/20 weed giveaway, as well as a 4/24 smoke-in will be memorable. Just remember to wear comfortable shoes.
Here are a few things to consider: a) The location – Capitol Hill; b) recipients of the free joints – Congress members; and c) focus of the events – the White House and its collection of conservatives who not only disapprove of weed, they seem to actually hate it.
Unlike last year, there will be two separate April protests in Washington D.C., both sponsored by DCMJ, co-founded in 2013 by Adam Eidinger and Nikolas Schiller with the express purpose of changing the marijuana laws in the District of Columbia.
This Is Marijuana Legalization’s New Enemy Number One
For many years, the biggest threat to marijuana legalization and fledgling legal cannabis businesses was the police.
Fears of DEA agents breaking down the front door at dawn, prosecutions in federal court with its accompanying mandatory minimums or warrantless visits from helicopter-riding police who merely cut down plant and leave—such things happen and are legal—was what kept people involved in cannabis up at night.

Legislative strategies may prevent federal crackdown on marijuana
We're about two months into the era of Republican-controlled federal government, and the sky hasn't yet fallen on legal marijuana. The new attorney general, former U.S. Sen. Jeff Sessions of Alabama, and White House press secretary Sean Spicer have both rumbled about a coming crackdown, but the industry is steadfast nonetheless, forging ahead into new markets, adding more businesses and investors.
That's not to say that everything is hunky-dory, though — lawmakers are scrambling at both the state and federal levels to insulate the industry from potential legal troubles.
