The march aims to educate people about the medicinal and therapeutic benefits of cannabis, protests the prohibition of marijuana, and encourages people to sign pro-pot petitions. If you believe you should have the right, as a responsible adult American, to choose a safer recreational alternative to alcohol or a safer medication than prescription drugs, please show up. Please bring supporters and start gathering at the park as early as 3:30 p.m. Protesters at the Phoenix Global Marijuana March should make signs advertising the benefits of marijuana. The history of marijuana prohibition in this country goes back to the 1930s, when Henry Anslinger, Assistant Prohibition Commissioner in the Bureau of Prohibition (precursor to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms) signed the Marijuana Tax Act of 1937.
