INTERNATIONAL DAY OF ACTION FOR ACTIVISTS: SATURDAY MAY 5 2012
FOURTEENTH ANNUAL GLOBAL CANNABIS MARCH
As they have in years past, local Activists from Missoula will join over three hundred cities worldwide in the fourteenth annual Global Cannabis March. Participants are especially excited for this year’s march because of the momentum building behind their long-held position that marijuana prohibition causes more harm than actual marijuana. 2012 will be a landmark year for marijuana reform activists around the nation. Colorado and Washington state have so far qualified initiatives to legalize and regulate marijuana similar to alcohol.
Montana NORML is coordinating the event to capture support for Montana First, a campaign that is working currently to put a ballot proposal on the November ballot that will protect the rights of adults who use and grow marijuana.
The march is scheduled to begin shortly after 4pm on Saturday May 5th.
Local participants will gather at Jacob’s Island (Bark Park) to march along the Clark Fork River to the Missoula County courthouse and through the downtown streets. The march is scheduled to begin shortly after 4pm. (Facebook event here.)
Members of the public are welcome to attend. Signature gatherers will be present throughout the event.
Craig Shannon, a local criminal defense attorney.
