If you’re like me, you have a friend or nine who still smokes weed all of the time, and all he/she/they ever talk about are (in no particular order): legalizing weed, the various benefits of weed, famous people who likely smoke weed, how different the world would be if everyone smoked weed, and how great Cheetos taste.
All of “those people” will be one place this weekend.
This Saturday, DFW Normal, the local Chapter of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws, is bringing the Global Marijuana March to Fort Worth. According to the group’s Facebook event page, the march “is an annual rally held in more than 300 cities around the world,” and different cities host marches, meetings, rallies, raves, concerts, and festivals.
“The Global Marijuana March is a celebration embracing cannabis culture as a personal lifestyle choice,” the site says. “Participants unite to discuss, promote, entertain, and educate both consumers and non-consumers alike.”
In addition to marching, there will be plenty of swaying and wild hippie dancing at the Fort Worth event. The organizers have put together a solid bill of bands, including The Effinays, Bum Lucky, and Pablo and the Hemphill 7. Here is a full list of bands and guest speakers — who I’m guessing will be talking about weed.
The march will go from noon to 7 p.m. at Federal Plaza, 1007 Throckmorton St. Entry is free and the event is open to all ages.
Bring your own Cheetos.
