WASHINGTON: The power of the weed is strong with this one.
A Washington attorney dressed as a Jedi sued the city of Clarkston for banning retail marijuana sales, according to reports.
Rick Laws, wearing a white swath similar to Luke Skywalker in the “Star Wars movies,” filed the motion against the city and four councilmen who voted to implement the restriction on Halloween. He claims the city’s ban is unconstitutional because the state legalized recreational marijuana in 2012.
The Jedi also claimed the prohibition is in clear breach of what local voters want — after a poll saw 1,373 residents wanting to legalize the drug, versus 1,137 who didn’t.
