A Michigan man has announced he's rolling his wheelchair to the White House to talk with lawmakers about legalizing cannabis.
Curtis Kyle left his home in Taylor, Mich., on Friday, reports Brian Larsen at WWJ.
"I'm rolling my wheelchair to Washington, D.C., from my home in Taylor," Kyle said. "I'm hoping to get to the White House by the Fourth of July."
"I'm doing this for every marijuana activist and smoker and user across the whole United States," Kyle said, reports WLNS. "I feel that we need to come back together and take our country back."
Kyle has cerebral palsy and has used a wheelchair for his entire life. He hopes to cover about 40 miles a day.
"Most of them are back roads," he said. "I do have an escort by me."
Curtis on Tuesday morning was in Macedonia, Ohio, according to a Facebook post on the United Marijuana Smokers of Michigan page, where the battery charger for the spare batteries in his wheelchair had stopped working, temporarily stalling the journey until Sears replaced the charger for free, since it has a lifetime replacement warranty.
