Hundreds of people gathered in Washington, D.C., for the inauguration of Donald Trump, to distribute thousands of free joints and sensitize consumers about marijuana, which was legalized in 2015 in the federal capital.
The organizers of the event, the activist group DCMJ Dupont, expected a large turnout and had prepared properly 8,500 joints. “For three weeks we were rolling joints,” he explained one of them smiling.
Note here that the new Justice Minister of Trump government opposes the legalization of cannabis.
Since February 2015 it is legal for someone to cultivate in his house up to six marijuana plants and hold up to 56 grams and give them for free, provided that they are over 21 years old. But its use is prohibited in public places, especially the purchase and sale of cannabis.
