April 20 is known for festive marijuana celebrations across the world. In Washington D.C., eight marijuana activists were arrested for handing out free joints on this year’s marijuana holiday.
Of the eight individuals arrested, only two were charged with a crime. This week that number was cut to one as Adam Eidinger was notified that he would not face prosecution by the U.S. attorney’s office.
Eidinger is known for his efforts in getting Initiative 71 passed. He drafted the ballot language and is seen as instrumental in getting voter support.
