420 at Independence Mall: Around 200 People Smoke a Joint to Fight for Marijuana Legalization (Video)

In a series of demonstrations to fight for marijuana legalization, hundreds of activists showed up at Independence Hall to smoke a joint at 4:20 PM yesterday afternoon.  Kenneth Lipp, who is an editor with the Philly Declaration, attended the social gathering and had this to say:

As planned, the Panic Hour and PhillyNORML held their third Smokedown Prohibition event at Independence Mall to directly demonstrate against marijuana prohibition by openly smoking it. 4:20 came and went with a large cloud and zero confrontation between demonstrators and authorities (a Park Ranger on his bike observed the whole event).
