Million Marijuana March Protests NYC's Record-High Pot Arrests

As the pot party moved to Battery Park and began to peter out, Jessica Hoff, 20, insisted she was not sleepy despite waking before 4 a.m. to board a bus in York, Pennsylvania. Hoff and her friend, Bill Keslar, a 21-year-old student at Penn State, made it through the march without getting arrested. "I didn't smoke anything all day and I'm having great fun," says Hoff. Why didn't she and Bill get high? "We can't smoke," she explains. "We're on probation."
