Global Cannabis March Los Angeles Represents Drug War Prisoners Serving Life Sentences

LA, 08.05.2014 23:06

On the first Saturday of May, people gather in over 400 cities worldwide to celebrate cannabis hemp. The 16th annual Los Angeles Global Cannabis March (also known as the Million Marijuana March) marched at high noon along Crenshaw Boulevard to Leimert Park on Saturday, May 3, 2013.

Volunteers from The HumanSolution, NORML Women's Alliance, and Orange County NORML formed a contingent to honor cannabis prisoners of war (POWs) serving time behind bars for a plant. As the march traveled along Crenshaw Boulevard, 3-foot tall signs bearing the pictures of marijuana POWs caught the attention of passerby and traffic.

. . . Hemptivist Dr. Mesmer carried a "Phytoremediate Fukushima" sign in the march. Phytoremediation is the process of using plants to clean a toxic environment. Large scale hemp planting has the potential to reduce air pollution and scrub toxic substances from the soil.

. . . Medical marijuana pioneer Richard Eastman greeted the march at Leimert Park. Speeches in the park celebrated California's status as the first state in the nation to allow medical marijuana...

Lawsuit Declares &quot;Google Bus Giveaway&quot; Illegal

San Francisco Bay Area, 07.05.2014 23:08

Tech buses have come to symbolize the increasingly unaffordable rents and rampant evictions in San Francisco. The City's response to protesters' objections to the buses has been to propose that the tech shuttles start paying a fee of $1 per stop in a limited number of bus stops. On May 1, however, a coalition of environmental, labor, and tenants' rights groups filed suit, declaring that the "Commuter Bus Program," aka the "Google Bus Giveaway," is illegal and should be set aside. The suit contends that it is against state law for private buses to use the public bus stops.
