Smoke on the Waterfront

waterfront park is what it is



On April 21st, the Saturday between 4/20 and Earth Day, we propose an OPEN CARRY WEED MARCH.

The industrial, economic, legal, and health benefits of cannabis legalization are now well-documented. To celebrate cannabis culture in our bioregion we are planning a public event to venerate the herb, as well as to thank those who have fought for legalization, as well as those working in the industry.

We also plan to exercise our freedom granted to us by the laws passed by we, the people, and to protest those who wish to deny us our freedom to grow, distribute, and consume cannabis, such as Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who claims that "good people don't smoke marijuana," among others in office with hard anti-pot stances.
