RVK Homegrown, a group seeking to decriminalise and eventually legalise
marijuana in Iceland, first made headlines last April with a “smoke-out”
held in front of parliament. Since then, the organisation has swelled
to over 1,200 members. Örvar Geir Geirsson, one of the founders of the
group, recently engaged in an awareness campaign—openly smoking
marijuana in front of several government offices, including police
headquarters, the Ministry of Welfare and Reykjavík District Court.
