Global Marijuana March

Posted on April 26th, 2008 in Events by Admin

What: Saskatoon’s 4th Annual Global Marijuana March

When: Saturday, May 3rd, 2008 @ 4:20 p.m.

Where: Vimy Ridge Memorial beside the Bessborough Hotel

Why: To educate the public about drug policy.

We start the march at Vimy Ridge Memorial and we end up at the front steps of city hall, just down the street from the Saskatoon Police station. Join us for free hot dogs and pop.

Update: Here is a picture of the Vimy Ridge Memorial. I have also included a map I copied from Mapquest.

    I have never heard of the Vimy Ridge Memorial. Could you guys post an address so the public knows where to show up.

    Thats a shame you dont know where the memorial is - it is there to remember the people that fought so you could have the freedom to have marijuana marches!

    I’m glad that you were able to find out where the Vimy Memorial is John. I’m not sure where NoPotForMe was coming from but I think it’s worth mentioning that the people who fought and died for our freedoms did so valiantly. It’s really quite sad that our freedoms are being denied and so a march which begins at the Vimy Memorial site in memory of the fight for freedom and ending at City Hall in a plea for government support is quite fitting.

    What about the freedom of the people in the wedding party you disrupted with your loud speaker etc etc. I guess they dont have the same freedoms as you. Is a crackheads freedoms being denied with crack being illegal? What about people who live off of crime - are their freedoms being denied because their choice of life involves committing crime to support themselves? You shouldn’t give a sad story about how your freedoms are being trampled - what about those that want a pot free society - did you deny them their rights on Saturday? What about the people walking around Saturday that had to inhale the smoke of your marijuana - did you deny them their rights. Your motivations are self serving. The pot movement has always been that way.

    I guess if people that have wedings were getting arrested for being married, I would march for thier freedoms too. People at the march simply want to have the same freedoms as everyone else. At some point one has to stand up for freedom or it will be lost. The Vimy Memorial is a testiment to that.

    I was unhappy to see that the bride was upset when I arrived at the Vimy. Most events we have held there have been well supported by the wedding parties and in some cases we have held off our events so a party could take pictures even though we held permits.

    I personally hate alcohol, does that mean I have the right to live in an alcohol free society? If I hated babies, would I have the right to a baby free society?

    If the bride is unhappy with us, I am sorry to hear that but I don’t think that anybody has a right to not be annoyed by something. Or kids wouldn’t exist!

    Marijuana smoke isn’t as big of a bother as say, car exhaust.

    Are you for real Tanya??? Babies???

    Come to think of it I would like more freedoms as well before the “man” takes it all away. Freedoms like being able to carry my guns anywhere and everywhere I want to. Yeah, I am beginning to see your points.

    “What about the freedom of the people in the wedding party you disrupted with your loud speaker etc etc.”
    That’s city hall’s fault for double booking the park, unless the wedding party didn’t bother getting a permit. If they didn’t get a permit, they would still have the right to use the park for their event but would have to not disrupt the event with the permit. The march organizers were nice enough to allow the wedding party to continue. Incorporated into the park use permit fee is a loudspeaker permit fee, that’s how it works in Regina, at least. I used to have to get a seperate loudspeaker permit along with the park permit, but now it’s all in one.
