WASHINGTON (CNN) - A marijuana advocacy group in the nation's capital plans to target members of Congress on Capitol Hill with two separate protests this April.

The first protest will take place on April 20 -- 4/20, the pot holiday -- from "high noon" til about 5 p.m., Adam Eidinger and Nikolas Schiller, co-founders of the group DCMJ, told CNN.

They said members of the group will set up just off Capitol grounds and pass out joints of locally grown marijuana rolled by hand in the home base of DCMJ on Embassy Row in Washington.
