Marching for Reefer Madness in El Paso

March for Reefer MadnessEl Paso will be experiencing a marijuana protest rally this weekend.

Dubbing it a “March for Reefer Madness” organizers are expecting around 150 people to show up and join in on a rally to support marijuana penalty reductions and full legalization in Texas.

They’re also seeking to raise awareness about the issue and talk about the bills in the state legislature this year pertaining to marijuana. In all, six bills have been introduced with a seventh likely on its way later this week pertaining to marijuana, which some people say could come from a Representative in El Paso.

Already Rep. Joe Moody, a Democrat from El Paso, has introduced a bill which would decrease the penalty for possession of less than an ounce of marijuana to a $100 misdemeanor fine, with no jail time.

The event is set to take place on Saturday, March 14 on Airway Blvd and there will be a potluck picnic afterwards. For more information, visit the event’s Facebook page.
