Report from New York City
Beautiful weather, Beautiful people, Beautiful march. Made some beautiful new friends and had a beautiful day. It started off at 11:00am set in Washington Square Park, for the 1st time in years, with an ibogaine forum and march history speech by Global/Million Marijuana March founder and veteran activist Dana Beal (www.cures-no-wars.org) while we handed out flyers to the people in the park as they came up to see what was going on so they would be up to speed with what Dana and the other speakers were talking about. Most of the people listening, aside from the 100 or so people starting to float in for the march, were tourists and really getting into the speeches and many had questions which were cheerfully answered by those who had answers. A few brave souls lit up some joints and the cops were pretty cool, well actually they were really cool throughout the entire day because they hung around and were glad to talk to anyone who wanted to talk to them about their opinion of the war on cannabis. The opinion was the same from any cop I talked to "Will you people please get this put on the ballot and I'll vote for it because I have better things to do on the 1st week of May every year then babysit you people". Very nice.

I met a cop that really didn't understand that street pot was the same thing as what is growing in the ground just dry. He was under the impression it was similar to how coca becomes cocaine since the have to wear hazard gear to move it and he's never seen it because it's always wrapped up in packages or bundles or something. He, like every law enforcement officer I and others spoke to, is very aware that they need to go home, type in www.leap.cc and start reading since every cop I spoke to agreed that cannabis enforcement is a total waste of time & money. Some mentioned much concern over the impending scourge of crystal meth that is on the way and that they wouldn't mind the weed resources to get a jump on it. We let them know that Leap would let them know how to make their concerns heard. I have to say I had a great time going up to "The Man" and saying "Hey, I remember you from last year. How've you been? Thanks for coming out and watching out for us" They returned the greeting and we talked, well except for those in plainclothes who preferred to stay "anonymous". I always say that the GMM is the one place on Earth where everyone is completely equal and all get along as one. Everyone seems to take a day off from hating each other and that is a beeeeeautiful thing and very spiritual if you are aware of the vibe, which I did my best to make sure those I spoke to knew to be part of the vibe. A few more speakers spoke including the Pieman ( www.pieman.org ) who is always great to talk to because, even though he has a tough time of it getting around anymore, he is absolutely 100% pure 1960's activism and there's so much to learn from him. Dana explained to us that the Mayor through his lawyers had to change our finish from Battery Park which is a good sized park on the southern most tip of NYC by the Statue of Liberty to City Hall Park in front of City Hall because blasting (how American & ironic?) and our safety. Well that sounds like a step in the right direction, Washington Square Park and City Hall Park all in the same day, good start.

12 noon we walk a few blocks to the starting point at Houston & Bleecker Streets. There was a free speech/open megaphone for an hour, with all its usual screaming and animation, while banners, flyers & signs were being handed out.

1pm we are on our way. Another part of his march I really find amusing is the fact that this GMM is the only march, parade or the like that people stop off at the various food stands, carts and pizza & burger joints along way, grab something to munch on and catch up to the march while usually being stopped by people on the street with questions or tourists who want a picture holding one of our signs or while walking in the march looking like a participant. I gave away a sign to a pair of young adult European couples who wanted a souvenir to take home. That should make for some fun going through customs. The people we passed all cheered us on which made us all think "Tell me why is weed illegal again?, Everyone seems to like it".

We get to City Hall Park which is quite small and are told that we only have a noise permit so we have to give up our signs and we could only be on the sidewalk outside of the park and to see the speakers and entertainment we had to sit down in a roped off area of sidewalk. Well I gotta say my ass immediately began to hurt, not because of the concrete either. We were literally kicked to the curb by the city. Poor Dana had to field like two or three fuktillion "What da fuk is going on?" questions from the marchers. Everyone made the best of it and we headed into the park for a bench in the park where we could hear the speakers but not have to be crowded on the sidewalk in the direct sun as did many people which ended up making more room for those out in front of the "stage". From what I've seen from the last couple years of attending various NY marches/rallies and such, sadly if you've heard the speeches at one NY rally you've heard them all. I agree that the history of pot oppression is an important part of promoting activism, especially for those who are just starting out and are hungry for info and passion to fuel their own fight, but I really feel there is almost no focus on now, , tomorrow and how we're going to win this fight. But that's a story for another time. I was blessed with being veeeeery brownied-up, since I knew smoking would be a game I didn't want to play this year, and had a wonderful glow the whole day with out having to hide like a criminal to burn a joint so the joints I brought along just in case somehow made it into the hands of some of my new friends without weed. Sharing is Caring, remember? Being brownie boy protector of cannabis freedom, I pretty much rambled the ears off of anyone who would listen and pretty much was unable to shut up for hours. Around 4pm or so we headed out into the rest of the city, walked around aimlessly, hanging out at street corners eating a variety of delicious NY street food, watching people go by, especially the summer clad females of all varieties, while doing our best to attract attention to our pro-cannabis t-shirts the whole way until exhaustion set in, caught a cab and headed to the train home. I would love to see enough people come out that we could all light up and the law would be rendered helpless but the people who did come out were great and very into either sharing information or asking questions. I do believe I love them all and am looking forward to being able to enjoy a bud with everyone someday soon in a NY March. See you all at the NY Harvest Fest in October.

From the article
A group rallied in Lower Manhattan Saturday to call for the legalization of marijuana for medical purposes.

“Cures not Wars” is urging lawmakers to allow hemp to be used with a prescription.

“If alcohol is socially acceptable, then I see no reason why marijuana can’t be,” said Audrey Silk, a Libertarian candidate for mayor, who joined the demonstration. “And medical marijuana to me is a total no-brainer. There is no reason to deny people who say it works fot them the ability to use it.”

The group is also touting the new drug ibogaine, which it says helps cure addiction.

“Basically with every other drug you take for drug addiction, like methadone, when the methadone wears off, you’re back in withdrawal,” said Dana Beal, another protestor. “When the ibogaine wears off there is no withdrawal.”

Similar demonstrations took place in nearly 200 cities around the world, including Prague, Kiev and Tel Aviv.

Local news media summary

Source: Global Cannabis. Million Marijuana March - Yahoo Groups. Message 20.

From: Andrew Seidenfeld <noprob@...> To: Dana Beal <dana@...>, <ptpeet@...>, Ssdptalk mailing list submission <ssdptalk@...> Status:

I didn't catch the early evening news at 7, but at 10:00pm Channels 5 and 9 both broadcast local news, and they both covered New York's Million Marijuana March.

Channel 5, Fox, had a short thing, maybe 15 seconds, with great on-stage footage of Preston Peet editor of http://www.drugwar.com. They mentioned the police made 148 arrests there, though I don't know if this is the latest figure. I presume most of the arrests were for marijuana possession, but I wonder if those arrested just got a desk appearance ticket (out of the cop shop in a few hours) or were put through the system (in jail until bail could be set, and paid, on Monday or Tuesday).

Channel 9, UPN, ran 2 or 3 promos leading up to their coverage, which lasted about a minute. They had great footage of the parade (which I missed this year), and Cures Not War's Dana Beal (http://www.cures-not-wars.org), talking on stage about nonviolently repealing the marijuana laws. Also footage of people booing the police as they took away another person.

Neither channel showed anyone smoking pot, because not many people were smoking pot. There were about 500 cops there, and thousands of people there. Still, the event was somewhat smaller than last year, when there also hundreds of cops and not many people smoking pot. The weather was sunny and warm.

ABC 20/20 was there videotaping anybody who wanted to say anything; they'll probably air a piece this summer.

There were 3 stages again this year. There were also vendors for food, clothing, and paraphernalia, and a table for a Libertarian party candidate, and for Medical Marijuana Barbie, now with "Hookers for Weed."

Some really good music, and good speakers, including Dana, Preston, Ask Ed (Ed Rosenthal), and people from Students for a Sensible Drug Policy and the Unitarian Universalist Church, the Pie Man, and more.

May 5 MMM:

From the article
The most confrontational rally took place in New York City, where police were very hostile towards the crowd. Pot-freedom is against the agenda of NY Mayor Rudolph Giuliani, whose anti-pot crusade has resulted in New York cops making 10% of all pot busts in the country.

A crowd of about 5000 people filled five city blocks as they marched through town. Plainclothes cops pulled pot-smokers out of the crowd, putting them in plastic cuffs and hauling them away. When some people started pointing out the undercover narcs, they too were arrested and hauled off. As rally-goers protested the police actions, they were clubbed and then pepper sprayed. Police sprayed dozens of people, including two High Times editors.

According to organizer Dana Beal, police made almost 200 arrests, over 60 of them for the catch-all charge of “obstructing governmental administration.” Last year’s New York march saw over 300 arrests.

1999[edit]

Return to top. See Global Marijuana March 1999 map.

May 1:

That night we got coverage on CBS, NBC, ABC, Fox, UPN, and WB 11, along with a three minute loop that ran for all weekend on NY-1. The Times missed the march altogether, mistaking the people waiting in Battery Park for the actual event. The best article, in the Daily News, plugged the actual date of the Millennium Marijuana March -- May 6, 2000 --and if taken together with Newsday, make one one pretty good article.
From the article:
The turn out was unbelievable: in New York, as many as 25,000 people marched and chanted anti-drug war slogans. ...

In marijuana-intolerant New York, correspondent Dana Beal reported a very different experience. Police in New York formed a “wall of blue” forcing 25,000 marchers out of affluent areas and making over 105 arrests in the process. Witnesses described some of the arrests as violent attacks on pot protestors.

One woman, carrying a sign that read, “Stop All Cannabis Arrests,” saw one of the arrests take place right beside her. “It was horrible,” she said. “We heard the smack of the body against the building.”

According to Beal, New York Police also distributed fake flyers, telling protestors to organize at the wrong spot at the wrong time, drawing nearly 4,000 away from the march’s main assemblage. Around the world, the Jay Day experience demonstrated that the most dangerous drug on the streets was power ? the power of police in certain precincts to abuse peaceful demonstrators partaking of a harmless, happy herb.

Mr. Beal works out of a garret on Bleecker Street, where the faded paint outside still says, "The Yipster Times." He and his followers have staged a marijuana rally in the park every year beginning in 1973 -- each time with a permit, except last year, when they held what a city spokesman called "an illegal assembly."

1967[edit]

Return to top.

The sweet, heavy smelt that Indicates burning marijuana drifted over Tompkins Square Park on the Lower East Side yesterday evening. The hippies were having a "smoke-in," and seven policemen were standing by, doing nothing about it. [Subscribe to read more].
Or read the full article online here: Page 63 of Marijuana (2018 book by The New York Times Editorial Staff).

Quote below (emphasis added) from no-longer-existing page at yippiemuseum.org/whatsup.html (archived):

"The first Smoke In was held in February 1967 in upstate New York by Michael Aldridge but it did not receive much press attention. In June 1967 Dana Beal and the New York Provos held the second smoke-in in Tompkins Square Park. Due to several arrests this demonstration received considerable press. Beal went underground in January 1968 but the Smoke Ins continued just as they do today as evidenced by the above photo of 10,000 Smoke Inners in Boulder on April 20, 2008."
Inspired by a Dutch anarchist group, activists A.J. Weberman and Dana Beal founded the New York Provos. When underground newspaper The East Village Other moved, the Provos took over its former office on Avenue A.

“We put a big sign in the window that said ‘Psychedelic Revolution,'” says Weberman. “I remember going out, selling this magazine we had, New York Provo magazine, and talking to 100, 200 different people a day on the street, wherever I’d meet them, trying to get them to come to our demonstrations.

“And we began to organize. Every time there was a pot bust, we’d march through the streets to protest them busting people for marijuana. The people in the neighborhood were very receptive, they threw flowers at us – along with the flowerpots. We started a bail fund and went down to 100 Centre and bailed out a number of people who couldn’t make bail for pot.”

In June 1967, Beal staged the first of a series of Smoke-Ins in Tompkins Square Park. “We had the first Smoke-In in the entire world there,” says Weberman, who left the U.S. that year. “We smoked pot openly to show people that it didn’t turn you into a raving maniac. Back then the pot was so weak it hardly did anything.”

In June of 1967, marijuana enthusiast, activist, and one of the founders of the Yippies, Dana Beal, organized “Smoke-Ins” that took place in Tompkins Square Park. According to the book, Smoke Signals: A Social History of Marijuana – Medical, Recreational and Scientific:
"New York cannabis activists organized four successive weekend smoke-ins in the leafy refuge of Tompkins Square Park, a favorite hangout of East Village Hippies. At the initial smoke-in in June 1967, Dana Beal tossed handfuls of joints into a thankful crowd, which sent everyone scrambling. The same ritual was enacted a few weeks later when the Grateful Dead performed a free concert at another Tompkins Square smoke-in. (It was the Dead’s first visit to the Big Apple.) By throwing down the gauntlet in such a fashion, Beal and his gang of pot provocateurs sought to force the police to choose between busting hundreds of people or letting them smoke in public. The cops caved."

New York City 1964 Dec 27 Allen Ginsberg, marijuana rally.jpg

Photo shows Allen Ginsberg at a December 27, 1964 legalization demonstration in New York City by the marijuana advocacy group LeMar (Legalize Marijuana). It was possibly the first public street demonstration for marijuana in the USA. A sign says: "Smoke Pot ... it's cheaper and healthier than liquor".

- See here the December 31, 1964 Village Voice article as it originally appeared in print. Excerpt from the 1964 article:

They distributed salmon-colored mimeographed leaflets that read in part: "Like liquor prohibition, pot prohibition violates personal liberty, promotes racketeering, and invites mass evasion of the law. But while alcohol is demonstrably productive of a hangover, cirrhosis of the liver, violence, and Dylan Thomas type scenes, marijuana on the other hand is in ALL respects gentle, benevolent and absolutely nonaddictive. We defy anyone to produce one shred of evidence that marijuana is in any way addictive!"

"On Shivaratri (Shiva's birthday)," said Ginsberg, who last year spent some months in India, "all the respectable families drink bhang (a mixture of marijuana, almond paste, and milk) prepared by all the respectable grandmothers in India." "Pot," he explained, "is sold in government stores, and is a big industry there."

Reefer Madness reproduces an excerpt from the Federal Bureau of Narcotics’s file on Allen Ginsberg:

On December 27, 1964, GINSBERG and ––––– had marched in front of the Department of Welfare Building, East 9th St. and Avenue C, with signs reading “Smoke Pot, It’s Cheaper and Healthier Tha Liquor” and “Pot Is a Reality Kick.” There individuals are members of an organization called LEMAR (Legalize Marijuana) and their names appear in the files of Interpol. (1998, p. 221).


Global Marijuana March overview[edit]
