Take to the Streets in the 2013 Global Marijuana March this Weekend

Take to the Streets in the 2013 Global Marijuana March this Weekend

Advocates for ending adult marijuana prohibition will take to the streets worldwide beginning this Saturday,  participating in the Global Marijuana March.

The Global Marijuana March, also known as the Global Cannabis March or the Million Marijuana March, was founded by Cures Not Wars’ activist Dana Beal in 1999 in New York City and quickly spread worldwide.  Over 800 cities from 72 countries have participated in the march since it began, including cities representing all 50 states and the District of Columbia.

The march takes place on the first Saturday in May every year.  The 2013  march takes place Saturday, May 4, in most cities.  In some cities, dates may vary slightly.
