Photos: Free joint giveaway on Pearl Street Mall a mellow event

The second free-joint giveaway sponsored by opponents to Proposition AA, the marijuana taxation measure on November's ballot, took place beginning at 11 a.m. today on Boulder's Pearl Street Mall. And according to photographer Brandon Marshall, who snapped the images on view below, it was hardly a mob scene. While he estimates that as many as 300 people eventually took advantage of the offer, only about twenty folks or so were on hand at the start of the rally, when co-organizers Miguel Lopez and Rob Corry spoke about why they're against Prop AA.
