The Democrats' convention is lit…

Demonstrators smoked weed at Philadelphia's city hall to push for legalization.

And marched with two 50-foot joints.

This year, the Democrats' platform actually includes language supporting a pathway to marijuana legalization.

It also calls for downgrading marijuana in the Controlled Substances Act.

It's a big win for Bernie Sanders supporters. And thousands of them are in Philly to protest the convention.
