At four minutes and 20 seconds into Trump’s speech, DCMJ founder Adam Eidinger says protesters will light up.
He says the giveaway is legal as long as it’s done on District of Columbia land. Those smoking on federal land risk arrest.
Eidinger says the group wants to send a message that the federal government should legalize cannabis.
Marijuana advocates are concerned about what actions attorney general nominee Sen. Jeff Sessions of Alabama would take on the issue. Sessions has previously spoken out against cannabis legalization.
