A coalition of groups advocating for marijuana legalization in New Jersey have announced plans for a “NJ Spring Smoke-Out” rally outside the Statehouse in Trenton this month.
The March 21 demonstration supports legalization and “any progressive measures on marijuana,” according to a Facebook page for the event.
A “Million Joint March” is scheduled to begin at 2 p.m. at the NJ Transit River Line Station near the Trenton Transit Center and proceed to the Statehouse.
At 4:20 p.m. the group will “smoke out” the Statehouse by lighting up across the street from the main entrance, according to organizers.
A similar event held outside the Statehouse in October had more than 250 participants. About 75 people smoked marijuana in protest during that rally.
The organizers include the East Coast Cannabis Coalition, the Coalition for Medical Marijuana – New Jersey, CB Delaware, Delaware NORML, Decarcerate the Garden State, The Legalize Marijuana Party, Legalize Cannabis in Atlantic City and Fully Baked Radio.
