This past Saturday saw yet another smoking protest at the White House, calling on President Sparkle Pony to deschedule cannabis from the DEA’s schedule of narcotics and dangerous substances. This week’s protest had a Star Wars theme, “March Of The Clones”, and also used the famous Han Solo Carbonite Freeze scene from Return Of The Jedi as an analogy for Obama’s continued inaction on cannabis scheduling.
Despite all evidence pointing to its value as medicine and its benign nature as a recreational drug, cannabis remains at Schedule 1, along with heroin. That’s right, heroin.
Last Saturday’s march to the White House featured marchers carrying cuttings from a large “cloned” cannabis plant brought to the rally, and a cardboard papier maché construction depicting Obama as Han Solo in the famous carbonite freeze scene.

Smoking at the White House again! While Lafayette Square and the sidewalk in front of the White House fence are Federal property, Pennsylvania Avenue itself is DC, where public weed smoking is a minor ticketing offense. As in the previous few “smoke-ins”, nobody was harassed by cops and no arrests were made.
