Donald Trump To Be Confronted By Marijuana Advocates On Inauguration Day

He also thinks that recreational marijuana, like what Colorado, Alaska, Oregon, Washington, and the District of Columbia have adopted,” is bad.” In fact, he “feels strongly about it.”

“I love Colorado and the people are great, but there’s a question as to how it’s all working out there, you know? That’s not going exactly trouble-free. So I really think that we should study Colorado, see what’s happening,” Donald Trump commented on Colorado’s marijuana law.

In November last year, four more states voted to allow recreational marijuana: California, Maine, Nevada, and Massachusetts.

While advocates think there’s hope yet for Donald Trump to turn his view on marijuana around, comedian Bill Maher is pessimistic about that possibility.

In an interview with ATTN, he believed that drug raids against marijuana might increase during the Donald Trump administration. It bears saying that Senator Jeff Sessions, the incoming attorney general, is also not a fan of weed.

“Don’t piss off your old dealer,” Maher told marijuana users. “You know, the guy you used to talk to before you got the weed and kind of deal with his skanky girlfriend and kind of be interested in his stories? You might have to do that again.”

But then again it seems marijuana advocates will attempt to poke the bear as they plan on passing out joints during Donald Trump’s inauguration.

The campaign is started by DCMJ, which successfully lobbied for marijuana legalization in Washington D.C., as a way of forcing the issue.

As founder Adam Eidinger said, “We are forced to do this type of publicity stunt because the Trump administration hasn’t mentioned marijuana once since he was elected. It reminds people that the public wants change, and the politicians aren’t doing it.”

The campaign is set for Jan. 20 and around 40 ounces of marijuana — or equivalent to 4,200 pieces of joint — will be handed out for free. However, Eidinger quickly clarified that they have no plans of blocking the inauguration of Donald Trump.
