Thank you everyone who had the balls to get out for the global marijuana march on March 7 2011. In Calgary our march was good, with a well known speaker, who made what seemed to me, rehashed topics and news. I received a T-shirt and a pack of rolling papers. We were met with many police offices that stopped traffic and caused no grief to myself or my fellow marchers.
The biggest surprise to me was the lack of cannabis at the event. I mean, I had seen no one light up. WTF man? I was even more surprised when I was sitting on a ledge for a rest. I pulled out a pipe and loaded it with my best Chara. There were police to my left and police to my right. They looked and said nothing. I was however approached, by an "organizer" and asked not to publicly smoke, because "that is not what we were about" I am still trying to rap my head around that one. Anyways, I DID proceed to smoke my fine bowl, and as did so, was thinking back to the sixties when people were not afraid to publicly display cannabis. I posted the video on my website.
I went home and got on my computer. I had noticed that someone had posted the Toronto Freedom March on YouTube. I watched it and I have to say, Toronto you guys rock! Now that was a march..... you can view it here
I know next year, where I will be in Toronto....for the marijuana march
