Seattle Cannabis Freedom March 2015: We Don’t Want Your Drug War!

On Saturday hundreds of cannabis activists and enthusiasts gathered in Volunteer Park and then took to the streets of Seattle for the sixth annual Cannabis Freedom March.

The police escorted procession was led by Ah Warner’s Cannabis Basics car with hemp activist Joy Beckman standing out of the sunroof with a blow-horn.

While nobody was being obnoxious about their public pot smoking and being very respectful to the multitude of police traveling with us, I can report there was ample pot smoking in the park, along the march, and when we arrived to Westlake to see live music and more speakers.

The highlights of the day included some very motivating and empowering speakers like Danica Noble of NORML’s Women of Washington talking about parental rights for people who responsibly use marijuana:

Morgan from MJBA’s Women Alliance:

Shawn Denae from the Washington Bud Company:

A sweet moment with Nana’s Secret, Cecilia Silverton and TwiceBaked talking about medical marijuana topicals:

I came home from the march feeling empowered and thankful to be part of such a kind, forward thinking, and hard-working cannabis community.
