Portland is having its 17th annual Global Cannabis March this Saturday. This has always been a successful event/protest in the past, and with the way things are in Oregon right now, this march is needed more now than ever before. I want to see as many people attend as possible. I unfortunately will be out of town on a family vacation, but I know a lot of people that are planning on attending. I was talking to former Portland Trailblazer Cliff Robinson and the Uncle Spliffy crew, and they plan on attending and you should too!
I checked the weather for Saturday May 7th in Portland, and it looks like it's supposed to be nothing but sun with a high of 84 degrees. It doesn't get much better than that in Portland in May! So come on out, and bring as many people as you know. It's going to be an amazing time and you will be surrounded by cannabis enthusiasts. Below is more information about the march and rally, via the event's Facebook page:
