On Tuesday, October 8, 2019, members of DCMJ, MDMJ, VAMJ, and COMJ descended upon the East Lawn of the U.S. Capitol to demand Congress pass meaningful cannabis reform laws. Below are photos & videos from the demonstration which are available for unrestricted use by the media. Continue reading
A big thank you goes out to all the volunteers who helped make Catharsis on the Mall: A Vigil for Healing the Drug War a HUGE success. To pay for this free event, we are still trying to hit our goal of $4,000, so please donate a little green! We hope to organize this type vigil again and have created a Facebook Page to help get the word out. Donations are used entirely to offset costs of building materials, permits, and rentals.
More than 1000 people attended a midnight burning of artist Michael Verdon’s Temple of Essence on the national Mall on November 21, 2015. Contained inside the temple were all copies of petitions signed by 56,000 people that put Initiative 71 on the ballot to legalize marijuana. (Photo by Cherry Savoy)
Once burning Verdon’s temple transformed by fire into a rendition of a jail cell. Only when the lotus shaped temple burned down could one see the bars of the cell which eventually collapsed to the cheers of all in attendance. (Photo by Kenny Reff)
As we gear up toward this Fall’s first legal cannabis harvest in Washington, DC, we’d love to share photos of your indoor cannabis gardens. Dubbed #ShowYourGrow on Twitter, we’d like to start including photographs in future DCMJ emails, as well as showcase them here on the website.
Please email your indoor garden photos to ShowYourGrow@DCMJ.org and indicate in your email whether you want to remain Anonymous or if you want your name published, the name of the strains (if known) in the photo, and the Ward your indoor garden is located in (or your Zipcode if you don’t know your Ward). Please send us your favorite photo instead of multiple photos! Unfortunately, we will not use photos that have been taken outdoors.
IMPORTANT: if you are sending us (or strangers!) photos taken from your phone, be sure to remove the GPS info in the photo’s EXIF data. Click here for a decent guide on how to strip the GPS data from your photos. Why remove the GPS data? When you take the photo and share it, you may be telling everyone the precise location of where your indoor garden is located and may be inviting some unwanted company.
