WAMM March for Medical Marijuana (7/16)

The Wo/Men's Alliance for Medical Marijuana will host the WAMM March for Medical Marijuana on Saturday, July 16th, 2005 at 12 noon on the Pacific Garden Mall, in downtown Santa Cruz.
THE WO/MEN'S ALLIANCE FOR MEDICAL MARIJUANA
The March will begin at the corner of Pacific Avenue and Cathcart Streets walking north and proceed to Church Street, then assemble at Santa Cruz City Hall where a press conference will be held at 1pm.

We are expecting more than 1,000 people to participate in this demonstration of community solidarity opposing the recent decision of the Supreme Court and of Congress that leaves sick and dying Californians vulnerable to persecution from the federal government.

In a symbolic act of compassionate access WAMM patient members will lead the March carrying live medical marijuana plants. This solemn event will honor the 154 WAMM members who have died since our inception in 1993.

Details regarding supporting groups that will join us in the WAMM March for Medical Marijuana will follow.
