GMM On the 7th of May 2016 the annual Global Marijuana March took place in over 800 cities worldwide. The mother of these marches is the NYC Cannabis Parade. Cannabis News Network was in New York to interview some key speakers, and to capture the atmosphere of the parade with an on-the-spot report.
Watch the founder of the NYC Cannabis Parade, Dana Beal, giving a blazing speech on stage, as well as Rob Robinson (Co-founder & Co-director NY Cannabis Alliance), Steve Bloom (Freedom Leaf), and Rick Cusick (High Times magazine).
Cannabis News Network also has exclusive interviews with Doug Greene from Empire State NORML, and Lieutenant Jack Cole from LEAP. Cole made clear that the event is still very necessary. “Since 1970 [the start of the war on drugs, ed.] we have made over 50 million arrests for non-violent drug offences. Some countries don’t even have 50 million people!”, he says.
For the second year in a row Sensi Seeds was the proud sponsor of the NYC Cannabis Parade. Read more about the Global Marijuana March in our recent 420 article here.
