Dallas Sheriff's Department shuts down marijuana protest

Honk For Medical Marijuana DallasA group which has been holding banner drops on overpasses around the Dallas/Fort Worth area was approached by the Dallas Sheriff’s Department and told they had to take their banner down.

The DFW Medical Marijuana Bridge Brigade was on the Preston Bridge over the George Bush Turn Pike displaying a banner which reads “Honk For Medical Marijuana” in Dallas.

Deputies arrived and told the group that they were were breaking city code, however when asked which codes the group was breaking, the deputy stated “I don’t have to tell you that, it’s not my job to inform.”

Risking arrest, the group took the banner down despite believing that they were exercising their First Amendment rights.

This is the group’s sixth such banner drop. Police passed by during previous events but did not stop to talk to them.
