Photos: Anti-pot-tax rally attracts big crowd for free joints

Earlier today, we told you about an anti-pot-taxation rally to be staged at Civic Center Park. Our Alex Brown checked out the event, bringing back the photos below and lots of colorful information about the gathering.

Examples? People started lining up for the no-charge tokes at 8:30 a.m., two-and-a-half hours before the proceedings got underway -- and not all of them were thrilled when they discovered that they had to listen to speakers such as marijuana attorney Rob Corry before they could get a prize for attending.
