Where Do I Go For The Global Cannabis March?


legalize marijuanaThis Saturday, May the 4th (or “Star Wars Day”) advocates for ending adult marijuana prohibition will march in hundreds of cities worldwide.  The Global Cannabis March (or “Million Marijuana March”, “Cannabis Liberation Day”, “J Day”, etc.) was founded by Cures Not Wars’ Dana Beal in 1999 in New York City.

A fantastic wiki has been set up to coordinate all the cities that will be participating.  Find yours by visiting http://rad-r.us/MJMarch – the link takes you to the United States’ listings, but you can scroll up and down for the worldwide listings.  Most marches have their own Facebook page as well, which you can find on the wiki as well.

I strongly encourage all readers to attend their march if possible.  There is nothing more galvanizing as an activist than to stand toe-to-toe with like-minded citizens and visibly protest for an end to prohibition.  Bring signs and friends and your love of the First Amendment (in America and your right to protest in your country).  Now that Colorado and Washington have opened the door, we need to blow it wide open for all cannabis consumers.

Million Marijuana March 037It was eight years ago that I attended my first Global Cannabis March in Portland.  That march changed my life as I was introduced to other local activists and opportunities I could never have found behind a computer screen.

Visit http://rad-r.us/MJMarch now and make your plans to stand up for your rights tomorrow.

    I will be at the one in New York City, for sure. I hope I meet some activists as well, like you did, Russ. Ever since I moved to the city, I have been itching to make a real difference locally. Cannabis reform is not such a familiar concept to most New Yorkers. But this place is ripe for reform. NYC is extremely liberal and forward thinking; it’s only our cannabis laws that are ancient and draconian.

  3. nice the day before the event and it doesnt say where in my area D.C, cmon now if you want ppl to attend at least let us know where ffs
