On 5/18/2013, comedian and marijuana legalization activist N.a. Poe was targeted and brutalized by national park police for organizing a rally called Smoke Down Prohibition V where attendees come and listen to speakers and then at 4:20, light up joints in solidarity to end the failed drug war. We had 4 peaceful rallies prior to this with no police involvement. This one was different. There were 50+ police from different agencies including National Park Police, Philadelphia Police (uniformed and civil affairs) and Fish & Wildlife Service Police. Poe and Libertarian activist Adam Kokesh were intentionally targeted and detained by federal "officials" and are still being detained in Philadelphia's Federal Detention Center for "resisting arrest" and "assault" - Which neither man is guilty of.
