The livestream will be from 3:00 to 4:20pm EST.

Activists gather at the statehouse in Concord, New Hampshire. They convene annually to protest cannabis prohibition. This year’s rally is the first to be hosted by the 420 Foundation‘s new Executive Director, Shire Dude. Hey, that’s me!

To promote the event, I personally invited Chief Nick Willard of the Manchester Police Department. I have yet to receive his RSVP.

This is a live event. If the video below is not live, you can access archived footage on my Bambuser account.


Funding for this broadcast is provided by viewers like you.

After the 420 rally, check the livestream again, at about 10:00pm. The Manchester Police Department has announced a checkpoint. If there is one, I intend to broadcast the response from Manchester activists.

Manchester Drivers Mobilize With Cell 411

Yesterday, I needed a ride.  Looking to test Cell 411’s new “ride hailing” feature, I requested a ride across town, expecting to sit on my hands for the next two hours.

(Free Keene has already reported about the Cell 411 app, as well as the app’s new ride hailing feature.  If you are unfamiliar with Cell 411, check out this video.)cell-411-ride

I set the request radius to 15 miles.  According to the app, there were 100 drivers within 15 miles.

Within a couple minutes, I received a driver’s offer.  It’s a reasonable price, but I don’t immediately accept it.

A minute after that, my neighbor (who lives in my building, across the hallway) undercut that price by $1.

A couple minutes after that, my friend sent a Facebook message: His girlfriend saw my request.  She’s not available to drive, but he is.  Even though he hadn’t set up the app, he became part of Cell 411’s ride hailing experiment.  I got the ride, paid my friend and I even tipped him with a double almond milk latte.

Have you tried hailing a ride with Cell 411 in your area?  You may be surprised with the results.
