PHILADELPHIA — They’re having a high ol’ time at the DNC thanks to Philadelphia’s decriminalization of pot and a DNC platform moving in that direction.
“Cannabis is having a very good convention,” said Chris Goldstein, from Philly NORML, the marijuana advocacy group.
“I’ve seen plenty of open marijuana smoking in sight of law enforcement. Safety is their priority. We appreciate that.”
The convention kicked off with a cannabis welcome party Monday night at a dive bar where delegates — and even one congressman — attended.
Goldstein wouldn’t identify the lawmaker.
Protesters got in on the action by carrying a 51-foot inflatable joint through the streets.
