A medical marijuana rally called hastily by Americans for Safe Access drew a lot of honks from passers-by Thursday afternoon, but not a lot of protesters.

About a dozen folks marched around the intersection of Speedway and Swan for about an hour during rush hour, sparking a bunch of honks of support and a few shouts of "Get a Job!" Interestingly, being there was my job, so Mr. Smith would offer a heartfelt "Go Fuck Yourself" to those folks. The rally was to protest President Obama's administration busts of more than 200 medical marijuana facilities in the past few years.

About a dozen people waved signs Thursday at the intersection of Swan and Speedway to protest federal raids on MMJ dispensaries.
