United States official Harry Anslinger lead the charge to ban cannabis in 1937. His racist, xenophobic justifications for criminalizing cannabis convinced Congress to pass the unconsitutional “Marihuana Tax Act.” May 20 is Anslinger’s 124th birthday and on this 5/20 we remember the blatant racisim behind the 80-year-old war on marijuana users.
Join us outside the White House on Pennsylvania Ave. NW on Friday, May 20 at 5:20pm for Harry’s 5/20!
This will be a unpermitted event with mass cannabis consumption and escaled non-violent civil disobedience.
We are calling on Obama to end the war on drug users by taking the first step: DESCHEDULING CANNABIS!
Support veterans risking arrest! They will lead a mass die-in calling for the enf to the war on drugs.
