washington dc marijuana decriminalizationI received the below e-mail and figured I’d pass it along in case you were in the area:

We are asking all Smoke-In Alumni to return to to Washington DC on Saturday July 4th, 2015 for the 45th Anniversary Smoke-In and join our demonstration at our Rally, the “Peace Mile March” and Concert in the contingent of the year they attended their first Smoke-In. This will be the best time during this current presidential administration to let your voice be heard in front of the White House and to be acknowledged as an American Veteran Marijuana Activist, and POW of THC!

During the 45 year history the Smoke-In, marijuana policy has changed from an Idea that’s time had not yet come into a movement of social change we are currently experiencing today. Undoubtedly, the Smoke-In has now literally touched millions of people’s lives. Created by the Hippies of Woodstock and Dana Beal and the Yippies! in 1970. This demonstration was born out of our nation’s right to free speech, freedom of assembly, freedom of the press and freedom of expression. This annual demonstration truly embodies a magic born of our freedoms, and we often hear the same story from different people. ” I came to Washington DC for the Smoke-In and it changed my life.”

If you have never been to the Smoke-In, We want YOU to see and feel what it is to embrace our culture and heritage. We want the young people to feel our energy and know where it is we are coming from.

So, Pack your bags now! It’s V Day to acknowledge all the Veteran Marijuana Activists and POW’s of THC! The people who gave of their positive energy and sacrifice to bring about a peaceful change in our communities over time.

Please support the Fourth Of July Hemp Coalition, sponsors of this demonstration, and visit some of our additional information on the pages of our website www.smoke-in.us on logistics, travel, regulations, activities and donations and becoming a volunteer for the buildup of this great day.

See Ya’ on the fourth of July!

    45 Years? How time flies. This site says the first one was in ’67. With some evidence:

    Being a Midwest Boy my venue was Madison. Some very good times. And then there was the year Jack Herer came to Rockford. Courtesy of EJ.
