FULL STORY: Supporters of legalized marijuana are planning to smoke pot outside the White House on Saturday.
Activists will also be carrying a giant, 51-foot-long inflatable “joint,” and inviting anyone passing by to light up, according to The Associated Press.
The AP reported:
“Organizers say President Barack Obama should remove pot from the list of Schedule 1 controlled substances, which includes heroin and other addictive drugs.
Obama has maintained that pot advocates should try to lobby Congress to pass a bill reclassifying the drug.
But protest organizers say Obama's pot policy is hypocritical, given that he has admitted smoking marijuana as a young man.”
Legally speaking, carrying 2 ounces of marijuana is allowed in D.C., although smoking in public is not.
