Grassroots Activists Head to the Nation’s Capital to End Prohibition
Millions to Gather in Hopes to Cease Lies and Propaganda in the Cannabis World!
Denver, CO (January 20, 2010) Overgrow The Government, a group of grassroots activists, is calling on a million supporters, hemp farmers and protesters alike to join together for a protest march in Washington D.C. to demand an end to cannabis prohibition. The march will take place on 4-20-11. We will meet at 10AM at the Washington Monument and the march will go to Lafayette Park! At the park we will be right across from the White House talking loud enough for Mr. Obama to hear us! Prepare for a day of speakers and fun, but most importantly CHANGE!
Overgrow The Government is a group of grassroots activists that are tired of the lies and propaganda associated with cannabis prohibition and have taken a firm stand against it. The success of the event depends on everyone in the cannabis world coming together in D.C to demand an end to prohibition and continue to do so in the years to come until a change is made.
The unofficial organization was started when grassroots activist, Jason, viewed a protest at the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) headquarters in which hemp farmers planted hemp seeds. “To me this was a metaphor for what I see that needs to happen; I knew that with science, medicine, and numbers on our side now is the time to change these laws, “said Mr. Warf. Following the protest, Jason took his idea and posted it as an event on Facebook to see what kind of feedback he would get. Within the first week, the protest received an overwhelming response from various organizations which proved he had to turn his idea into reality. He took on small group of activists as board members and started planning the event in the nation’s capital.
