Tommy Wells‘ marijuana decriminalization bill looks set to pass the D.C. Council when the body reconvenes in the fall, but for some local pot activists, decriminalization doesn’t go far. Instead, they’re gathering signatures to put a referendum to legalize marijuana on the ballot next year. But what good is your should-be-legal pot if you can’t smoke it?
To that end, the DCMJ legalization group is handing out flyers that also work as roaches for rolling joints.
On one side, the flyer has information on the referendum and jury nullification. Flip it over, and you’re greeted by roaches with messages both recreational (“4:20”), political (“DC politicians support racist laws”), and informative (“George Washington grew cannabis”). Roll ’em if you got ’em, LL supposes.
