The D.C. Cannabis Coalition called the event the #Trump420 demonstration and was to hand out 4,200 joints as they paraded from DuPont Circle to the National Mall. The group is for the legalization of marijuana in all 50 states and in the District of Columbia.
On their website, the group plans to light the joints four minutes and twenty seconds into Trump inauguration speech. The group says it will check the identification of everyone requesting marijuana. They also warn participants of the risk for arrest if smoking or carrying marijuana onto Federal property.

Lines at the event appeared to stretch over a block long and began forming early Friday morning.
Protests were also held in other parts of D.C. on the morning of Inauguration Day.
These protests follow demonstrations outside of the National Press Club where a “DeploraBall” party was being held Thursday night.
Hundreds of protesters were outside yelling “Shame!” at attendees entering the building as D.C. police officers arrived.
Chants of “No Trump. No KKK. No Fascist USA” were also heard.
