Phila. police bust pot protest on Independence Mall

INDEPENDENCE MALL - June 30, 2013

A large group of marijuana reform activists, who want the drug legalized, had a smoke-out on Independence Mall at 4:20 pm.

Only Action News was there as police, along with federal park rangers, swooped in to arrest the law breakers.

Some of the suspects did not submit to authorities easily. No word on the exact number of arrests.

Meanwhile undeterred organizers say they will be back next month.
