It was a beautiful day to exercise our first ammendment rights to peacably assemble at the State capitol, and was an afternoon full of facts, exposing the fallacies, and throwing frisbees. Like did you know that Gov. Engler sponsered legislation that was to decriminalize cannabis in '82? Or did you know that cannabis users actually had LESS chance of stroke and mental degeneration in old age?
As with any cannabis related event in Michigan this year, the focus was on the petition drive to legalize adult and medical use of cannabis. is really about time that Hash Bash made it to the steps of the Capitol.  Most of the crowd of 150-250 people had already signed it, and about half were circulating it themselves. I was glad to be involved with my family in such an important demonstration against the hypocrisy and injustice in the war on drugs. Teach your children well. With over 2 million prisoners in jail, 700,000 pot related, and 80% black, it is obvious that what need to end isn't cannabis use, but the war on drugs.Declare Peace,Rev.Wright Related Articles & Web Sites:Cannabis 2000 National Million Marijuana March Urge Marijuana Legalization Arrests At Pot Protest Promotes Marijuana, Hemp Fans Urge Freedom for the Fettered Weed Arrested In Pot-March Bust March Unites Advocates Call for Legalization of MMJ In Texas Speak Against State's Drug Sentencing Advocate Announce Creation of Federal MJ Party MJ - Medical Pot Sparks Park Rally Draws A Crowd "Portland's Million Marijuana March"(May 6, 2000), Washington, USA.
