If you are looking to score some free weed, head down to Washington D.C. on President-elect Donald Trump's Inauguration Day.
DCMJ, a marijuana activist group based in the nation's capital, will be distributing 4,200 joints of cannabis on Jan. 20 to push Trump to support legalization of the drug in all 50 states and Washington D.C.
Don't worry. It's all legal.
The group was created in early 2013 to urge lawmakers to change the city's marijuana laws. In November 2014, voters approved a ballot initiative to legalize recreational use of the drug. The law went into effect on Feb. 26, 2015.
On Twitter, the group's page is filled with photos and videos of members rolling joints in preparation of the event:
The group will meet on the west side of Dupont Circle at 8 a.m. and begin handing out joints at 10 a.m. during a march to the National Mall.
While handing out and accepting joints are legal activities in Washington D.C., the group warns that certain actions are grounds for arrest:
• No one under the age of 21 years old is permitted to possess cannabis.
• Accepting any form of money for cannabis is illegal.
• Consuming cannabis in public is prohibited.
• Possessing cannabis on federal land is illegal.
Attendees are urged to dress warm and bring identification to the event.
