It’s that time of year again.
Saturday is the annual NYC Cannabis Parade. Activists championing legalized marijuana and decriminalization of the herb are planning to gather West 31st Street and march down Broadway to Union Square.
The parade starts at 12:30, and will be lead by marijuana activist and Global Marijuana March founder Dana Beal, and Jack A. Cole, a retired police lieutenant who started Law Enforcement Against Prohibition (LEAP).
Expected speakers include City Councilmen Jumaane Williams and Rafael Espinal, according to organizers, as well as numerous members of activist groups and musical performances.
