    Dude in a Cannabis Leaf Costume Prances Through Philly

    Everyone’s favorite Philadelphia cannabis activist is at it again, this time celebrating the two-year anniversary of the city’s cannabis decriminalization.

    Nikki Allen Poe, who gained the attention of the national media last summer at the Democratic National Convention, propping up the infamous 51-foot joint, and holding a homemade sign emblazoned proclaiming “GOD HATES SCHWAG” as a counter-protest to members from the Westboro Baptist Church.

    His most recent shenanigans feature Poe in a green man suit and a giant cannabis leaf known as Hempy. Hempy has been spotted prancing around the city promoting a “Pop Up Weed Garden” at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, taking pictures with tourists, and pausing in the park to smoke an occasional joint.

    The Pop Up Weed Garden happened on October 20, from 4:20 until about 6:00pm, when as many as 300 people gathered at Eakins Oval to celebrate Philadelphia’s decriminalization. The event featured free snacks and refreshments and was strictly BYOW (Bring Your Own Weed), with attendees warned to carry less than 30 grams (the possession of less than 30 grams of cannabis is punishable by a civil fine of $25, and public consumption carries a penalty of $100, rather than an arrest).

    Philadelphia law enforcement kept an eye on the gathering, but ultimately did not issue any citations.
