MILWAUKEE – On Saturday, May 5th, Southeastern Wisconsin NORML (SE WI NORML) will host the 8th annual march to legalize cannabis in Wisconsin at MacArthur Square in downtown Milwaukee.

The March for Cannabis will unite cannabis supporters and advocates to bring greater awareness to the issues of prohibition, demonstrate the amount of support Wisconsin has for legalization, and have a stronger and unified voice in the 2018 elections. The March for Cannabis brings awareness to how legalizing and regulating cannabis like alcohol would offer economical, medical, environmental, and racial, social & criminal justice benefits to Wisconsin and its residents.

A program of speakers is scheduled to begin at 1pm and the speakers include:

Governor candidates were invited to attend the March for Cannabis and speak on why voters should choose them in the upcoming 2018 elections as the governor that will reform cannabis laws in Wisconsin. The governor candidates attending include:

  1. myfivecents says:

    By Walker saying a $25,000 campaign contribution isn’t big enough to buy his support, he is admitting that there is a big enough dollar amount that will buy his support. He can be bought if they pay enough. There is no way he talk himself out of this one.

  2. AG says:

    Wait… so… if someone gives him money, and his policies are in line with the views of the donors, that’s bad. However, if he gets money from donors and his policies are not in line with those donors, that’s… er… bad?

  3. Vincent Hanna says:

    A politician will take money from anyone (and return it later only if it’s potentially damaging to their future reelection prospects), but it seems stupid to give money to one who opposes your core beliefs and will do nothing to advance your agenda.

  4. Jesse says:

    Walker , that’s awesome you are now getting jobs you promised some yrs ago .
    That’s great , the bad thing is 72% of Wisconsinites want legal weed.
    You say you want the best for us in Wisconsin, then why are you picking on the poorest of the poor people in Wisconsin. people who need food, realy, that’s the lowest shot you could give to the residents of Wisconsin. Pick on the Fuckers running the black market in our state and leave the poor alone. You have an opinion , well ,so do we , and so doe;s the rest of Wisconsin & I will bet there not on your side…………………………… .
