Global Cannabis March 2017!

May 6 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm

Every year on or around the first Saturday in May, there is Rally to end cannabis prohibition in over 175 cities around the world! Join the Illinois Chapter of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws as we continue this unfortunately necessary tradition of standing up and demanding policy that works FOR the people!

Our speakers include!

Ali Nagib! The Assistant Director of Illinois NORML, he has fought for cannabis policy reform here in Illinois for the better part of a decade, playing instrumental roles in our current statewide decriminalization policy along with our Medical Cannabis Pilot Program.

Jason Spyres! – He was sentenced to 30 years behind bars for transporting cannabis across state lines, and is finally free to come forward and give his two cents about cannabis policy then, now, and where it needs to be!

There will be live painting by Chris Skeduleone(supremely fitting for cannabis’ unjust classification on the controlled substances list), and we will be raffling off his finished piece!

As always there will be live musical performances, this year by

Illuminati Congo

The Wasted Pterodactyls

DJ Whiteowl

Get Up With the Get Downs

More to be announced!

As always, this is a FREE Rally, and is family friendly, as prohibition affects us all. Let’s make this year our biggest Rally YET! Bring your smiling faces, drums, and come out early to make a sign! See you at DALEY PLAZA
