Keep Westword Free

Medical marijuana art revolt greeted with "daggers" from "creepers" in Haxtun

Last week, we told you about a medical marijuana art revolt by ReeferReport.com's Angela Macdonald, an MMJ patient whose small town, Haxtun, has banned cannabis businesses. The event took place this weekend, and the quotes (one of them by George Washington) Macdonald and helpers painted on a former jail she and her husband own elicited a few compliments, along with plenty of dirty looks and negativity from local passersby. Look below for Macdonald's video diary about the reactions:
