A group of marijuana activists advocating for the decriminalization of marijuana will light up across the street from the White House Saturday afternoon. The Reschedule 4/20 event -- so-named for the push to reschedule cannabis from a Schedule 1 drug -- is being put on by the D.C. Cannabis Campaign, and advertises civil disobedience: mass cannabis consumption beginning at 4:20 p.m. Join us in demanding President Obama use his authority to stop the marijuana arrests, pardon offenders, give partients access to their medicine, and deschedule cannabis, a poster for the smoke show reads. According to a Facebook event page, nearly 400 people have RSVP'd. While the spectacle has attracted some interest, it's also invited criticism from at least one activist. ThinkProgress has more:
