GMM (years signed up). Google site search no longer works well. It does not find all the yearly city lists containing a city name.
Special:Search works well. Click: "Global Marijuana March maps". Add city name to search, and state/province/nation as needed. This is an advanced search of main pages and templates. This will pull up all yearly maps in which the city is listed. Except for 2015, 2016, 2017, 2021 due to various problems. Putting quotes around multi-word city names helps focus the search: "New York City". This city, nation, or subnational area participated or signed up one year (or more) for the Global Marijuana March (GMM), Million Marijuana March (MMM), or 420. Cities and nations holding 4/20 events are also included in later years. Yearly maps. See: 420 and Global Cannabis March event lists by year. See: GMM links.

Report (from old GMM site): The weather called for rain, but instead it was sunny with high winds. We had the usual 100 or so gather at the State Capitol; passed a lot of literature, and heard from 4 speakers, James Getman (Iowa NORML), Reverend Ray Green (Iowa Compassionate Consultants Awareness Network), Terry Mitchell Cures Not Wars), and Jamie Grimm (Johnny Reefersed and the High Rollers). The high winds was making everyone chill so we all moved to Birdland Park for music in the pavilion. Things got a little smoky there, otherwise no trouble from law enforcement. At the Capitol, I showed the Iowa State Policeman my wood pipe and tobacco to avoid a closer inspection, like what happened last year. The good news is that the Ron Paul Revolution is strong in Iowa, and the Iowa Democrats still support cannabis law reform. The bad news is that the elected officials are not moving forward with the wishes of the voters. Overall a good time as usual.

  • Report (from old GMM site):

We had a good event as usual, about 60 to 70 in attendance. No extra law enforcement, just the regular Capitol cop driving around. Terry Mitchell, Carl Olsen, and myself did most of the speaking. A few volunteers shared their stories. Terry raffled off a DVD of Grass the Movie, and two cannabis logo potato sacks.

James Getman
