The annual Philadelphia arm of the Global Cannabis March takes place on Sunday May 8, 2016! Join us as we take to the streets to share the message of legalization, celebrate the passage of SB3 (now known as Act 16), and celebrate the numerous cities across the state which are joining Philadelphia in decriminalizing cannabis locally. Will Pennsylvania be the next state to fully legalize and regulate cannabis? Five or six states will get to vote on legalization ballot initiative this November, but we’re working on it. We don’t expect to be the 24th state for recreational, but somewhere in the low teens.
