Meet the Cannabis Activist Who Gave Out Free Joints at Trump’s Inauguration
Washington D.C.-based activist Adam Eidinger has devoted much of his life to the good fight. A clever and unrelenting opponent of federal cannabis prohibition, the IMF and World Bank, Monsanto’s unlabeled GMOs, and other terrible things, he’s been arrested 15 times for various attention-grabbing actions. Two of best include handing out free joints to congressional staffers this past 4/20 and planting hemp seeds in the front lawn of the DEA’s Virginia headquarters in 2009. As an educator, organizer, protester, and leader for the reform movement, Eidinger helped pass Initiative 71, which finally legalized cannabis in the District of Columbia on Feb. 26, 2015.
