NEW JERSEY: With chants like, “One! Two! Three! Four! Smoke, smoke, smoke some more!” a crowd of more than 100 people supporting the legalization of marijuana descended Saturday on the Statehouse in Trenton.
The “Spring Smoke Out” rally grew in intensity as it progressed through East State Street, culminating with the demonstration outside the Statehouse that included a few dozen people smoking marijuana in protest at 4:20 p.m.
“Who’s ready to protest?” Ed “NJ Weedman” Forchion called out to the crowd, eliciting a chorus of cheers. “We are!”
“Who’s ready to smoke? Who’s ready to vote?” Forchion yelled. “We are!” the group responded, cheering louder than before.
