No comments
Dozens of pro-legalization protesters lit up in unison at 4:20 p.m. in front of the White House, and tried to get President Obama to hear them out on relaxing federal laws againstmarijuana.

D.C. Police and Park Police as well as Secret Service were all on site, but there were no visible arrests. A few people were plucked from the crowd and appeared to be ticketed, however.

A Park Police spokeswoman told ABC News that they had no jurisdiction over the demonstrators since they remained on Pennsylvania Avenue and did not enter the park area.

According to DC Police, two citation were issued for public consumption.

Secret Service had not yet responded to ABC News' request for comment on the protest.

Earlier in the day, the Secret Service blocked the protesters from lugging a 51-foot inflatable joint onto Pennsylvania Avenue.

The protesters deflated the joint, and later were escorted off the premises when they blew it up against Secret Service's wishes in front of the White House.
