Inauguration haze: Lines to get free weed joints during Trump ceremony
Dupont Circle, some 30 minutes away from Capitol Hill, where Trump is to take his oath of office, has been trending on Twitter as lines stretching over several blocks have formed there.

A group called the DC Cannabis Coalition (DCMJ) plans to hand out 4,200 joints for free in an event named ‘Trump 420’ – a reference to the global cannabis celebration date of April 20.
The organizers called on anyone who gets an ‘inauguration joint’ from them to light it four minutes and 20 seconds into Trump’s inauguration speech.
Biggest crowds I've seen so far: hundreds lined up at DuPont Circle, apparently waiting for free joints? pic.twitter.com/3DQiBYTmHq— Kate Davidson (@KateDavidson) January 20, 2017
Not everyone might get lucky, though, as the group has already said it is "starting to run low on joints."

DuPont Circle is trending because of free weed. If this is where your priorities are, no wonder why you lost the election. #InaugurationDay— 🐸AlbertRotten🐸 (@AlbertRotten) January 20, 2017
It's a little hazy what the 45th US president thinks of the legal status of weed, as it wasn't specifically outlined during his campaign.
