Thousands expected in Washington D.C. on 4/20/2011
Thousands of people from across the country are expected to converge on the Nations capitol on 4/20/2011. The 420inDC organization will be holding a rally in Washington D.C. to try and end the prohibition. The organizers said “The response has been overwhelming”. 420inDC is a non-profit, grass roots organization that is for the legalization, regulation and taxation of marijuana at the Federal level. However, they do not advocate smoking, growing, buying or selling marijuana any place where it is currently illegal. They support the medical use of marijuana by American citizens and do not think the Government should deny its citizens effective medical treatment. They also believe that recreational use of marijuana should be up to the individual, not the Government. Marijuana prohibition costs the United States more than $14 billion dollars every year in enforcement, imprisonment and lost tax revenue.
They will be holding a peaceful rally in Washington D.C. on 4/11/2011. As of today, they have over 2000 people signed up to be at the rally. There are going to be musical guests and several guest speakers. The speakers they have lined up for the rally are:
