D/FW NORML March
If you’re outside in the Fort tomorrow afternoon (Sat May 5) and detect a distinctive prickly odor drifting in from the east, it could be the 2012 Dallas Global Marijuana March, sponsored by the Dallas/Fort Worth chapter of NORML (National Organization to Reform Marijuana Laws). Dubbed Cinco de Mota (“mota” is a Latin American nickname for cannabis), the event happens 2-10pm at Dallas’ City Hall, with the parade itself commencing at 4:20pm. Or, you know, whenever we get around to it, dude. I’m wagering that the lines at the food trucks will be longer than the parade itself.
