San Antonio Global Marijuana March, Rally, Party

San Antonio NORML

San Antonio will be participating in the Global Marijuana March, with a rally and party taking place afterwards on the first Saturday in May.

Since 1999 hundreds of thousands of people have participated in over 829 different cities in 72 countries in the Global Marijuana March, an annual rally held at different locations across the planet. It refers to cannabis-related events that occur on the first Saturday in May, or thereabouts, and may include marches, meetings, rallies, raves, concerts, festivals and information tables.

This will be the second time 7th largest city in the country will take part in this world-wide event and is again being organized by San Antonio NORML.

“San Antonio is a city that has seen all the ways its citizens can and are being made victim by Prohibition,” says Destiny Young, who works with the non-profit organization. “Having a march to show we are not alone in our want for better laws will hopefully bring others to the conversation.”

Over the last decade, an average of 72,000 people per year have been arrested in Texas alone for marijuana.

The march starts at Lambert Beach Field and we will end at Pink’s Patio. Some of the speakers include Dean Becker and Emily Ann, and there will also be live music and vendors.

The event kicks off at 2 pm on Saturday, May 7 and is scheduled to conclude at 10 pm. Attendees are encouraged to wear comfortable clothing and bring water during their participation in the march.
