Last month a resounding 70% of Washington, DC’s voters backed a ballot measure to legalize marijuana in the district. This week Congress came to an early deal on a new budget that would effectively block the measure, despite its having been democratically approved. In response, activists have launched a bid to halt the federal budget deal. Protestors marched to Capitol Hill and have organized a sit-in for today at the office of Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Read (D-Nev.).┬áHere Adam Eidinger, chairman of the DC Cannabis Campaign, takes the mic.
