Yesterday, I covered part of the 46th anniversary of The New York City Cannabis Parade & Rally. It is the longest running marijuana legalization event in the country. The day was started with a "Speak out" which I attended at 32nd St / Broadway and then a parade down to Union Square for the Rally.
New York is so close to passing laws to legalize marijuana that there was an excitement in the crowd that wasn't there last year. The pressing issues that remain are reparation for those convicted of current marijuana laws, and the issue of taxing the sale of cannabis. Please watch the video for more details from the participants.
