The Dallas/Fort Worth chapter of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (DFW NORML) will be hosting its annual Global Marijuana March in downtown Fort Worth on Saturday, May 2, 2015. Attendance is free.
Kicking off the day will be a lineup of speakers at Fort Worth's Hyde Park (201 W. 9th Street Fort Worth, Texas 76102) featuring military veterans, patients, parents, educators, attorneys, farmers, and activists. There will also be live music, opportunities to win prizes and a variety of vendor booths to explore.
In 2014, more than 2,000 activists and concerned citizens peacefully descended on the Tarrant County Courthouse without issue while the Fort Worth Police Department helped clear the route along the way.
The family friendly festival style event officially begins at 12:00 p.m. with speakers and music. Then at 4:20 p.m., thousands of people are expected to march through the streets of Fort Worth to the Tarrant County Courthouse where a rally will be held on its steps. Upon returning to Hyde Park by 5:30 p.m., attendees will enjoy additional speakers, a fundraising auction and more live music performances from local entertainers. All festivities at Hyde Park will conclude by 8 p.m., followed by an after party at Mambo's Tapas Cantina (1010 Houston St., Fort Worth, Texas 76102) until 10:30 p.m.
DFW NORML has been holding the annual March since 2006 and is inviting everyone from across the state to join thousands of fellow Texans on this historic day in 2015 to raise awareness for the need to reform cannabis laws in Texas. Whether you support medical marijuana, industrial hemp, recreational cannabis for responsible adults, or the religious use of marijuana, the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML) supports your rights to freedom and fairness.
Isn't it high time YOU got involved?
