This Saturday, May 7, San Diego marijuana supporters will meet at 11am and march together from Crystal Pier (Pacific Beach) on the boardwalk to the lifeguard station at Mission Beach and back again in support of the marijuana movement.
This event, co-sponsored by California Cannabis Coalition, is part of a worldwide march taking place on the same day in over 300 cities across the United States as well as many other parts of the world. It is expected that hundreds of San Diegans will participate in this worldwide effort to show support for the marijuana movement.
The Worldwide Marijuana March is an event put together by Cures Not Wars, an organization founded in New York in May 1994 as a grassroots response to the deteriorating quality of life in America. They are a coalition of drug-reform activists, users, health-care and drug-treatment providers and social-justice activists committed to advocacy and non-violent direct action to stop the drug war, whether in small, local protests or in regional or national actions.
California Cannabis Coalition is the local chapter of the American Cannabis Coalition. Their mission is to safeguarding America’s right to access cannabis legally.
