Adam Kokesh Arrested at Anti-Prohibition Protest in Philly

Charged with resisting arrest. But for what?


Philadelphia – New details and information regarding a story that broke here on Digital Journal earlier this evening are now beginning to surface.

Earlier Saturday Alex Allen, a digital journalist and the publisher of the "Liberty Sun," broke the story of Adam Kokesh's arrest at a "Smoke Down Prohibition" event in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Kokesh, who has attended and spoken at previous "Smoke Down Prohibition" events, was allegedly arrested without having smoked any marijuana. Footage has since been released, confirming his arrest. Although the audio is very poor in the footage, you can clearly hear Kokesh at one point stating that he was being "assaulted" by the police.
