Cannabis users and citizens who follow local news have almost certainly heard of Adam Eidinger, who knows a thing or two about beating the drum for the District’s legal-marijuana movement. A ballot measure he spearheaded in 2014, Initiative 71, allows for residents to grow and smoke modest amounts of weed at home. In the past year, he’s organized an effigy burning on the National Mall for drug war victims, an effort to get officials to seriously consider “cannabis clubs” (semi-private venues where people can legally consume), and—just last weekend—a smoke-in in front of the White House. Keep ’em coming, Adam.
