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.

According to a Facebook event page, nearly 400 people have RSVP'd.
