4,200 Joints are Being Handed Out and Lit Up at Trump’s Inauguration: What’s Your Opinion on This [Poll]?

Is handing out and lighting up thousands of joints at Trumps inauguration a good idea? Answer the poll below!

Earlier this month the DC Cannabis Campaign announced that it will be handing 4,200 free joints the morning leading up to Donald Trump’s inauguration on January 20th; they then plan to light up four minutes and 20 seconds into Trump’s speech.

A few days later DC Mayor Muriel Bowser said it’s unlikely that those taking part in this will be arrested; Bowser is a supporter of cannabis legalization.

Since the DC Cannabis Campaign announced this, it has stirred up quite a debate among the cannabis movement. Some have argued that it will only enrage those opposed to legalization; this, they say, could make it more likely that Trump’s Administration will enforce federal cannabis laws.

Others argue that the demonstration will be a clear signal that times have changed; cannabis possession and cultivation is legal in DC for those 21 and older, after all.

With the issue being so polarizing, we’re curious where the majority opinion stands (if there is one).

If you have an opinion, please answer the poll below:

    Legalization of cannabis has nothing to do with the travesty of the Trump presidency, the immediate threat to our health care and the disenfranchisement of women and minorities. I am a strong supporter of legalization but this is not the time to act. If joints dominate the headlines instead of the serious issues we face it will be a shame.
