The marijuana menace apparently has not yet been eradicated from out fair city. On Sunday, radical group of protestors, united under the “Smokedown Prohibition” banner, marched from LOVE Park to Independence National Historical Park for a moment of so-called “cannabis reflection” at 4:20. But don’t be fooled: These folks were doing marijuanas.
Organized by Ed Forchion, popularly known as “NJ Weedman,” this past Smokedown Prohibition was the sixth in a series; a previous protest nettedseveral notable arrests about a month ago. But the righteous whip of the Drug War hasn’t deterred these dopers, and at this demonstration police merely ticketed seven attendees. Oddly enough, though, there have been no reports of insanity or lawless violence at the hands of the loco weed, but give it time. There is, after all, a good reason why marijuana is illegal. Right?
