Pedaling for pot

Colorado Daily, CO

Bicycling members of Americans for Safe Access (ASA) will be blazing through the Boulder area today in part of their Journey for Justice, advocating the right of patients and doctors to use medical marijuana.

The group left Folly Beach, South Carolina on April 7, hoping to smoke across the country and reach San Francisco on June 1.

“We want to see legislation pass where medical marijuana is no longer illegal,” said Mark Pedersen, ASA's traveling coordinator. Over the phone while heading west on Highway 24 through Kansas last Friday, Pedersen added, “We're proving we're not going to quit until this becomes a blatant public issue.”

The group has already been raided once unsuccessfully by police and drug-sniffing dogs in Kansas.
