NYC Cannabis Parade & Founding Chapter of the Global Marijuana March Leads Worldwide Day of Advocacy and Entertainment
(NEW YORK, NY) – The Global Marijuana March (GMM)—born in New York City as the first annual pro-cannabis event and since expanded to hundreds of different cities in dozens of countries worldwide since 1999—happens here as the NYC Cannabis Parade on Saturday, May 6, 2017.
With a majority of all Americans now in favor of some form of legalized cannabis use, the NYC Cannabis Parade is an opportunity for New Yorkers to demand their voices be heard. The NYC Cannabis Parade and its supporters will gather in Midtown and walk, chant, sing and march down to Union Square for a day of activism, celebration and entertainment. The Parade assembly will begin at 11:00 a.m. at the intersection of West 31st and Broadway, with speakers and an MC, before beginning its march down Broadway towards Union Square at 12:30 p.m. The rally at Union Square’s South Plaza from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. will consist of a mix of activism, speakers, music and other entertainment.
