ONTARIO RISES UP AGAINST PROPOSED MARIJUANA LAWS
Sat. May.5th- 20th Global Marijuana March (GMM)
(Toronto, ON) – The 20th annual Global Marijuana March (GMM) in Toronto is set for Saturday May 5th, 2018! Presented by leaders of some of Ontario’s top private retail, public lounges and craft brand manufacturers protesting for their rights to be part of the legalized marijuana industry. The GMM takes place in over 500 cities across the globe, with Toronto being the largest in North America.
On Saturday May 5th at 11AM join medical marijuana patients, recreational users, private cannabis business owner and supporters will unite for an organized political rally in front of the Queen’s Park South provincial legislature! The goal of this rally is to bring much needed attention to the major issues surrounding the Ontario government’s proposed monopoly of legal cannabis sales, and their proposed plan to close popular public consumption lounges across the province. “Ontario is now looking at a progressive and realistic approach to consumption & public health policies. We are pleased to see consumption lounges as being included in the framework as lounges provide a frontline to safer consumption education and product information, as well as solving the dilemma of public nuisance, indoor only consumption for families, renters and more,” says HOTBOX lounge founder Abi Roach.
After the RISE UP ONTARIO rally we invite you at HIGH NOON to Queen’s Park North for the 20th anniversary of the GMM. Several of the provinces most recognized private retail, public lounge and craft industry brands will be in attendance openly protesting before, and after the GMM launch. At 2PM the GMM will take off north of Queen’s Park travelling to Bloor, East to Yonge, south to Wellesley returning to Queen’s Park for the legendary 420 countdown . The provincial elections are in June and GMM organizer HERB KUSHMAN says “ its finally time to show the Ontario government in their own backyard what we think legalization should look like. VOTE TO TOKE ONTARIO!”.
