"So it's a good idea to have kids there?"
Nobody is ordering-out for kids .... they tend to come to these things all by themselves, or else are brought by their parents.
"It's a rally where people could get arrested etc."
MLK joined with the kids (who themselves were civil disobedients and arrested) during the Civil Rights battles of the 1950's and 1960's:http://www.npr.org/programs/tavis/features/2004/dec/overcome_book/blurb200.jpg

"I don't think it's entirely safe for (little kids)."
What's more unsafe ... protesting the drug war, or NOT protesting the drug war? Perhaps it's not your call to make. Perhaps it's up to each individual, no matter what age they are.
"Teens were at the last Fill the Hill but not children."
Parents bring their kids all the time - in both Edmonton and Vancouver rallies.http://photoeast.ca/images/id_4875_1428_kid.jpg

"When everyone is hugging David while he's passing out hash, who wants a kid to get trampled in the mess?"
Hugging is only when the cops try a bust - kids generally will get out of the way for that. I was once unarrested in Edmonton by 3 (small) teens and a guy with a video camera. Kids arn't waiting around making no decisions before they can vote - they're living their lives right now. Who are you to decide what they can risk and what they can protest?
"What if someone gets arrested with thier kid there?"
Better during the day at a pot rally than late at night when nobody else is around to help.
"I think this is better left to adults (a protest), or those who are responsible for only themselves."
So are you going to ask all under-eighteens to leave? That's a bit drastic, don't you think? No families and no teens at a pot protest means that at least half of the people currently going will not be able to attend future rallies.
"I think there should at least be a hieght restriction. LOL.
I was not feeding into any hysteria.
But just becuase I'm not and you don't mean the press wont."
If you ban kids at the rally, THAT will become the news. Then you will be asked why cannabis is OK for adults but not for kids, and any affirmative answer to that will be full of lies and bullshit.
