CALL TO ACTION: MassCann/NORML will join DCMJ for their #Reschedule420 Rally in Washington D.C. on April 2, 2016 starting at 2 p.m.


To assist with this effort, we have set up a facebook event page for discussion and travel arrangements:

 We do not have much time to plan this trip, so any accommodations, suggestions, offers to car pool and/or donate to gas money or bus rental/donation is greatly appreciated.

“In response to the Obama administration’s unwillingness to take action on reforming marijuana laws, the D.C. Cannabis Campaign (DCMJ) is planning to light up outside the White House on April 2.

“While we have been able to drastically reduce arrests for marijuana possession in the District of Columbia, millions of Americans across the United States are not so lucky. As long as cannabis is treated in the same category of drugs as heroin, with no accepted medical use, police will continue to arrest & lockup our brothers and sisters.

We will gather outside the White House at 2:00pm on Saturday, April 2 and have speakers from DCMJ and other cannabis advocacy groups. At 4:20pm there will be a mass-consumption* of cannabis.”

The event, Reschedule 420, will feature mass consumption of cannabis, which remains illegal on federal land. (Marijuana consumption did recently become legal on private property in Washington, D.C., however.)

Eidinger says he wants cannabis rescheduled from Schedule I — a classification reserved for dangerous drugs with no medical use that also includes heroin and bath salts — into Schedule III, or descheduled altogether.

Last year, the Obama administration eased some restrictions on cannabis research, but THC’s status as a Schedule I controlled substance continues to make it difficult for researchers to fully explore its medicinal capabilities.
