WASHINGTON, D.C. (CRN) – A planned protest by the DC Cannabis Campaign and Weed for Warriors was disrupted when Secret Service had to close off Pennsylvania Avenue and Lafayette Park due to a shooting near the White House. Undeterred, activists led by Adam Eidinger held the protest on H Street anyway. Speakers, including our own “Radical” Russ Belville, addressed the crowd while marijuana smoke filled the air and police stood by and watched without incident.
