free seeds
2435 18th Street, NW

Back in March we saw lines like this and readers again say it’s free marijuana seeds. One reader writes:

“It wraps around the corner into the alleyway (just south of Amsterdam Falafel). They are giving away seeds, actual female seedling plants, smoking supplies, hemp products, and growing tutorial info. Hundreds out there. This is organized by DC Norml. The giveaway is happening at Libertine restaurant. ”

Subterranean Sakuramen now sees the light! Almost exactly a year ago we learned that Sakuramen would be expanding into the former Botanica Yemaya space upstairs. For those not familiar with the deliciousness at Sakuramen – you can check out their menu here. I’m told that the new upstairs space is opening up soon, possibly today. Check out the great new mural done by Henley Bounkhong, a self-taught ballpoint pen artist, aka Golden Rabbit Silent Monkey:
