With marijuana-legalizing Initiative 71 about to go up in smoke, District pot fans are returning to an old tactic: distributing factsheets that double as joint filter tips.
“It keeps little pieces of marijuana from sucking into your mouth,” explains D.C. Cannabis Campaign chairman Adam Eidinger.
But not just that. Each of the filters has an Initiative 71-themed factoid, with some warning pot users that smoking in public still is illegal. On the opposite side, the filters feature the likes of Marion Barry, Muriel Bowser, and Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton, marking what LL thinks is the first time a District pol’s image has appeared in a joint.
Eidinger says he’s aiming to clear up confusion among District marijuana types about the initiative’s status.
“I’ve been hearing everything from, ‘Ah, sorry brother, they overturned your initiative,’ to, ‘Isn’t it great, they’ll be opening stores this spring,'” Eidinger says.
