420 (Day 265)
Back on Day 154, I explained the Free State Project and a quite vocal subset of that group centralized in Keene. Recently, one of their causes has been the decriminalization of marijuana. To that end, for the past week, a growing group of folks have been showing up on our town square at 4:20pm to smoke pot in a display of public disobedience.
The gentleman above is Richard Paul, one of the organizers of the event. This photo was taken at 4:23pm, just seconds before he exhaled pot smoke into a police officer’s face and was arrested. To see the after effects of Paul’s action, along with a dozen other shots from the event, click here. Note: best viewed as a slide show.
PS – I went with contrasty B&W as the whole event had a 60’s vibe and this post treatment seemed appropriate.
