What’s This – You Can’t Take Photos of Hemp Expo Participants in Front of Oakland City Hall, Per the Mayor?

Tuesday, September 6th, 2011

So Oakland officials didn’t want the MSM or anybody else taking photos of Hemp Expo participants toking up with Oakland City Hall in the background over this weekend’s Hemp Expo 2011?

Seems that way:

KTVU-TV showed what appeared to be an Oakland official instructing the media not to take photos of people smoking in front of City Hall.┬áThe official was not identified, but Arturo Sanchez, an assistant to the city administrator told the station, “it’s not that we don’t want the picture, we try to keep this area of City Hall, (and) this public park free of smoke.”

Check it out here at 1:40:

“Do not take a photo of somebody directly in front of City Hall”

Well, some of these people here are lighting up – see?

I don’t know, maybe this edict worked, ’cause I haven’t seen any photos online of people smoking bud in front of City Hall.

Seems funny to have this kind of rule.

All right, Oakland, see you next year…
