"This Just In" piece reporting on the "Bangor Six," six of the twelve protestors
"This Just In" piece reporting on the "Bangor Six," six of the twelve protestors arrested on criminal-trespassing charges more than a year ago when they refused to leave the Bangor office of U.S. Sen. Susan Collins. They were protesting the war in Iraq. The "Bangor Six" chose jail time over a fine, and were in court this week facing the possibility of six months in jail or a $1,000 fine. Meanwhile, Michael Dee of Windham traveled to Washington D.C. this week in hopes of hand-delivering a petition to the U.S. Supreme Court on Law Day. In the petition Dee claims that marijuana is personal property that falls under the protection of the Fourth Amendment. Those who want to push for pot-smoking rights closer to home can attend Saturday's Global Marijuana March in Monument Square calling for legalization of cannabis.
