Free Marijuana Day!

On this date in 1937, FDR signed the Marijuana Tax Act, effectively making marijuana illegal.  That worked well, didn't it?  The legislation and its successors has made criminals of -- literally -- millions of Americans; it has ruined many millions more in affected families, and has created the incarceration crisis that threatens to overwhelm the US today.

In memory, therefore, it would be good to make August 2nd Free Marijuana from the Clutches of The Law Day.
