On May 3rd the Republican State convention was not the only political rally in town. Wisconsinites of all political views gathered at the Annual Marijuana March in support of complete legalization.
The march started at Kilbourn Park in Milwaukee and circled around ending at the park. It was a total of 4 miles.
“We had way more people than we thought would turn out, 4 times more people than last year.”
“There is a group of people that just don’t want to buy in to the dream of the American Barbie future. They want to just go hang out, they want to have their own life, they want to have their own family, they don’t value maybe, working a 40 hour a week job, maybe they instead value growing a garden, getting closer to a simple life. These are the people, the lifestyles Libertarians support. It just happens that these people just want a simple lifestyle, they also want marijuana legalized“.
Only 1 police cruiser was present at the park towards the end, presumably to make sure everyone left on time. No arrests, no problems.
WTMJ referred to last years event as the largest ever, so this by far surpassed last years events.
