Today veteran, activist, student, and underground medical marijuana patient Mike Whiter made good on his plans to receive Philadelphia’s first marijuana citation, a $100 fine for “marijuana usage in public.”
Whiter gave a short speech reiterating his reasons for volunteering to pay 100 bucks, then lit up a joint for a couple hits before being told to throw it to the ground by a waiting Philadelphia Police officer (the interaction was not staged, exactly, but Whiter had discussed his plans with Philly PD brass and they arrived prepared for him to burn one).
The Declaration was on the scene to watch things go down, as were Philly Mag and the Metro.
Check out Philly’s first pot ticket, filmed and produced by those lovable lugs with wonderful mugs at Scrapple TV.
