Medical Marijuana Supporters Demonstrate In Santa Cruz
July 17, 2005
, KSBW-TVHundreds of medical marijuana users and supporters rode in wheelchairs or walked slowly down Pacific Avenue in a downtown procession designed to demonstrate the need for pot for the ill. The Wo/Mens Alliance for Medical Marijuana organized the event, which included many people holding signs with photographs of deceased loved ones who had counted on relief from marijuana during their final days. The demonstration was designed to differentiate recreational drug users from medical users. Saturday's midday march ended in the courtyard of City Hall where there were speeches from elected officials and medical marijuana advocates.
