Political activists and members of the public gathered outside the Dail to pay their respects to the fabled Mr. Nice, drug smuggler extraordinaire...
On a balmy Wednesday afternoon, a small group of supporters, pro-marijuana activists from NORML and Howard Marks' longtime Irish tour manager, Paddy Paradise, banded together to pay homage to the man who has done so much for drug reform policies – and who died recently after a battle with cancer.
"It's a decent and honourable thing to do, to honour someone that would very much be an advocate for the legalisation of cannabis," Paddy told Hot Press.
The memorial service took place outside Leinster House at 4:20pm on Wednesday, April 20, to coincide with the 420 'Weed Day' celebrations.
