MILLION MARIJUANA MARCH IN FREEDOM PARK: We had an awesome caption for this, but we, like, forgot it.

Contrary to the stereotype, pot smokers don’t just get high and sit at home. On Saturday, some of them got high and sat on a hill in Freedom Park.

They were local participants in Saturday’s Million Marijuana March, which consisted of coordinated pot-legalization rallies around the globe. Atlanta’s rally was led by Paul Cornwell. Cornwell heads the Atlanta branch of the Coalition for the Abolition of Marijuana Prohibition, which is difficult to say even when you’re not high, so they just call it CAMP.

With the scent of sweet, sweet cheeba in the air, Cornwell’s rambling speech emphasized the injustice and hypocrisy of keeping marijuana illegal. It was interrupted repeatedly by passing cars honking (presumably) in support, and once by Cornwell’s own cell phone, which he stopped his speech to answer.
