March for Cannabis to happen in Milwaukee May 5

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) – On Saturday, May 5 Southeastern Wisconsin's National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws will host its 8th annual march to legalize cannabis in Wisconsin at MacArthur Square in downtown Milwaukee.

The March for Cannabis will unite cannabis supporters and advocates to bring greater awareness to the issues of prohibition, demonstrate the amount of support Wisconsin has for legalization, and have a stronger and unified voice in the 2018 elections. The March for Cannabis brings awareness to how legalizing and regulating cannabis like alcohol would offer economical, medical, environmental, and racial, social & criminal justice benefits to Wisconsin and its residents.

A program of speakers is scheduled to begin at 1 p.m.

All candidates for Governor were invited to the march. Six candidates have chosen to attend including Phil Anderson (L), Mike Crute (D), Matt Flynn (D), Andy Gronik (D), Mike McCabe (D) and Kelda Roys (D).
