Pro-legalization Group AKA DCMJ Planning To Give Out Joints On Inauguration Day

knickers2_001

Here’s what they say

You are cordially invited to join DCMJ for the inaugural #Trump420 taking place on January 20, 2017 in Washington, DC!

We will gather on the west side of Dupont Circle at 8am for coffee & tea and parade down to the National Mall at 10am. Along the way we’ll hand out 4,200 joints of legally grown cannabis! At 4 minutes and 20 seconds into President Trump’s speech we’ll light up! (unless President Trump comes out now in support of full cannabis legalization in all 50 States and DC!)

We legalized cannabis in Washington, DC and we are not going to let anyone take that away from us! This is an outreach opportunity to show President Trump’s supporters we are the marijuana majority! Join us for smokin’ fun time!

Possession of up to two ounces of marijuana is legal in the District of Columbia, thanks to the passage of Ballot Initiative 71, a campaign that was headed by the DCMJ in 2014. What is not legal, however, in D.C. is purchasing or selling marijuana. In this respect, the only legal way to distribute marijuana to large groups of people in D.C. is to give it away free of charge.

How long it will take the group to distribute 4,200 free joints is unknown, but it is worth noting that organizers of one of the largest scheduled Inauguration Day protests, the Women’s March on Washington, estimate that around 200,000 people will show up for their event alone.

5 Year Old Makes Millions Opening Toys On You Tube

5 Year old Ryan is the youngest star on YouTube and has the most hits. The family’s channel, Ryan ToysReview, was created in March of 2015, and at first, didn’t get many views. But about four months in, the channel published this video, and views started doubling with every  month. Ryan’s mom, left her job as a high school chemistry teacher to work on the YouTube channel full time. Ryan Toys Review  has been the most popular channel in all of YouTube.

According to a report from The Guardian, 20 of the top 100 channels on YouTube are focused on toys, collecting upwards of 4.5 billion views a month. Before Ryan stepped in front of the camera, he was a viewer.

Currently, average family can find themselves running an extremely lucrative business from the comfort of their living room. There are no such rules as in film and television that exist for Ryan’s job on YouTube. “All of the laws for child performers are regulated by state. The federal government leaves it to them,” said Toni Casala, CEO of Children in Film. “There are seventeen states which basically have basically no child labor laws around performance.” 

The Texas Workforce Commission, says “When a business is owned or operated by a parent or legal custodian, the parent or custodian may employ their own children at any age to work any hours, so long as the work is non-hazardous (not prohibited) and the child works under the parent or custodian’s direct supervision.

Ryans parents says, they post a new video every day, and typically film two to three videos at a time two to three times per week. They try not to interfere with Ryan’s pre-pre-school schedule, so a majority of the filming takes place during the weekend, and the editing takes place while he’s in school.
