Stand up for your rights

Filed under: civil disobedience, war on drugs — Robert Wicks @ 12:34 am

In the words of legendary singer/songwriter Bob Marley, “Get up, stand up, stand up for your right.” The heroic Andrew Carroll decided to stand up for his in the city of Keene, New Hampshire. As expected, the police arrived shortly thereafter. Note the onlookers’ apt description of the situation in which this peaceful young man is “getting arrested for touching a plant.”

Carroll was charged with a misdemeanor and released.
