Philadelphia Cannabis March 2016

Together we can make a difference!

This Sunday the 8th of May 2016, will begin the annual march in Philadelphia. Together we will celebrate the meaningful ever growing number of cities across the state which are joining Philadelphia in decriminalizing cannabis locally. And most important we will share the message of legalization. Together we can make Pennsylvania the next state to fully regulate and legalize cannabis.

The march starts at 3:30 PM on the corner of 8th and Market streets and at 4:20, will proceed west towards City Hall. At 5:00 PM it will arrive at the east side of City Hall and do a lap around it, until all the participants arrive at the north side of the City Hall.

At approximate 5:10 PM, the Representative Jordan Harris will hold a speech, introducing the detailed marijuana legalization bill for Pennsylvania.

Together with Rep. Harris, Derek Rosenzweig from PhillyNORML is also working on the bill. Derek Rosenzweig welcomed the chance to bring forward the issue in Harrisburg. “The people of Pennsylvania deserve to see prohibition repealed now,” and “We should be allowed to grow or use cannabis for personal use, legally. A common sense system of regulation can be put into place for adults who chose to consume cannabis.” these are some words said by Derek Rosenzweig. As you may know, the PhillyNORML’ annual event is a part of the Global Cannabis March. The march takes places in hundreds of cities during May.

N.A. Poe the comedian and also a marijuana activist, hosts a party for the march. The party is starting at 7.00 PM and is taking place at Connie’s Ric Rac 1132 S. 9th street. Poe said“I’m happy to be part of a community that continues to grow and prosper while winning hearts and minds along the way,”

Philadelphia’s cannabis community became more visible and vocal since the local and country laws have changed.

Let’s make a change, in Pennsylvania, in USA, in the world. We are the law!
Together we are more powerful! Let’s unite people!

All participants at the march are asked to bring green colored signs and a bottle of water. See you all on Sunday!
