Any adults in Washington, D.C., looking to get stoned on Inauguration Day should make their way to the west side of Dupont Circle by 8 a.m.

The D.C. Cannabis Coalition is pushing for federal legalization of pot, and plan on passing out free joints to the first 4,200 people they meet. Later, the group will march to the National Mall, where 4 minutes and 20 seconds into Donald Trump's speech, they'll light up. "We are going to tell them that if they smoke on federal property, they are risking arrest," Adam Eidinger, founder of the group DCMJ, told WUSA-TV. "But, that's a form of civil disobedience. I think it's a good protest."

Hillary and Bill Clinton will attend Donald Trump's inauguration

  Hillary and Bill Clinton will attend Donald Trump's inauguration WASHINGTON _ The inauguration of the next president won't play out quite the way they had envisioned. But Bill and Hillary Clinton will still attend inaugural ceremonies for President-elect Donald Trump at the Capitol on Jan. 20, aides for both Clintons confirmed Tuesday. Protocol dictates that former presidents, and their spouses, are given prominent seats to witness an inauguration. But never has a former first lady lost the election, and it had not been a given that either Clinton would attend.Hillary Clinton's attendance, in particular, will be an important symbol about the peaceful transfer of power in America despite one of the most bitter campaigns in recent memory.

4 , 200 free joints on Inauguration Day as part of a protest. That's because there will be thousands of joints handed out —for free —by the DC Cannabis Coalition. It all starts at 8:00 a.m. January 20th on the west side of Dupont Circle.

DCMJ is a group of D.C. residents who helped get Initiative 17 passed, which makes it legal in the District to possess two ounces or less of marijuana, grow it, and give it away (selling pot is illegal).

Eidinger said the protest is not anti-Trump, nor is it an attempt to derail the inauguration, but they are concerned about Trump's pick for attorney general, Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions (R), who "as recently as April said that they are going to enforce federal law on marijuana all over the country."

While the goal is to change the law, Eidinger hopes the event also makes people glad they came to the inauguration. "If there are people from Texas, some Cowboys fan, who is walking down the street in a cowboy hat and a big fur coat and he walks up to our demonstration, I want him to feel welcome coming to D.C.," he said.

Don's what? Portable toilet names covered for inauguration .
It's the great port-a-potty cover-up for President-elect Donald Trump's inauguration. Workers preparing for the inauguration Jan. 20 have taped over the name of the company — "Don's Johns" — that has long supplied portable restrooms for major outdoor events in the nation's capital. Virginia-based Don's Johns calls itself the Washington area's top provider of portable toilet rentals. But the name apparently strikes too close to home for inaugural organizers. Workers have placed blue tape over the brand name on dozens of portable restrooms installed near the Capitol for the inauguration.
