Marijuana and statehood activists are chaining themselves to ‘liberty pole’ on the Mall
(WashPost) At the very deliberate time of 4:20 a.m. Wednesday, dozens of D.C. marijuana activists arrived at the Mall. They put on some music, constructed a 42-foot “liberty pole,” and chained themselves to it.“Chained to this pole, I feel more free than I have in my memory,” said protester David Keniston. “We are living democracy right now.”
Led by the DC Cannabis Campaign, the organization that spearheaded efforts to legalize marijuana in the city, the nearly week-long vigil in which city activists decry congressional meddling into local D.C. affairs began Wednesday.
The activists decided to start the around-the-clock protest on April 15, Tax Day, because, as the city’s license plates say, the District has “taxation without representation.” D.C. residents pay federal taxes, but do not have voting representation in the Senate or House. The vigil is slated to end at 4:20 p.m. on, well, April 20, more commonly known as 4/20.
