PRESS RELEASE: March for Cannabis – 8th Annual March to Legalize Cannabis in Wisconsin

SE WI NORML to hold 8th annual march to legalize cannabis in Wisconsin at MacArthur Square in downtown Milwaukee.

MILWAUKEE – On Saturday, May 5th, Southeastern Wisconsin NORML (SE WI NORML) will host the 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 1pm and the speakers include:

  • Eric Marsch, SE WI NORML
  • Rick Banks, Black Leaders Organizing for Communities (BLOC)
  • Tiffany Anderson, Greater Milwaukee Green Party
  • David Bowen, State Representative for Wisconsin’s 10th District

Governor candidates were invited to attend the March for Cannabis and speak on why voters should choose them in the upcoming 2018 elections as the governor that will reform cannabis laws in Wisconsin. The governor candidates attending include:

  • Phil Anderson (L)
  • Mike Crute (D)
  • Matt Flynn (D)
  • Andy Gronik (D)
  • Mike McCabe (D)
  • Kelda Roys (D)

At 2pm, the march will begin on the corner of W Wells St and N 9th St. The March includes a 1.7 mile route that loops through Milwaukee’s downtown and then back to MacArthur Square for a public display of support for cannabis legalization.

Join us for the March for Cannabis!

The mission of the March for Cannabis is to unite cannabis supporters and advocates so we can bring greater awareness to the issues of prohibition and have a stronger voice when we vote in the 2018 elections.

A Marquette poll reported that 59% of Wisconsinites think cannabis should be “fully legalized and regulated like alcohol” and we feel Wisconsin’s laws should reflect this! Legalizing and regulating cannabis like alcohol would offer economical, medical, environmental, and social & criminal justice benefits and we want to make this known through the March for Cannabis.

Rally at MacArthur Square (Next to the Milwaukee County Court House) and then march with us downtown!
