Worldwide Marijuana March In Chicago, One Week Late

New Attempt to Legalize Medical Marijuana in Illinois If you were afraid Chicago missed out on the World Marijuana March last week, you can breathe a little easier. A press release we received yesterday informed us that the march will take place tomorrow in Daley Plaza from “High Noon until 5 p.m.” If you're going, here's what organizers say to expect [major (sic'd)].

We speech and march around the block then at 2: our permit lets bands start at 2:pm Chronic Nate followed by Taking Hits Constantly then Genral Patton & His Privates and Illuminati Congo. And more marches between bands.

The march is held every year to raise awareness for legalization and to show support for “those jailed,” presumably for possession or dealing pot. According to the limited information we could find, Chicago's event got pushed back due to a conflict with Cinco De Mayo celebrations.
