The Global Marijuana March (GMM) is also known as the Million Marijuana March (MMM), and Global Cannabis March (GCM). Other names, and associated events (some have been around longer than GCM): World Cannabis Day, Cannabis Liberation Day, Cannabis Parade, Ganja Day, J Day, MardiGrass, etc.. GMM occurs on the first Saturday in May, or thereabouts, depending on the city and country. It began in 1999. See New York City, Dana Beal, and Wikipedia: Global Marijuana March. It may include marches, meetings, rallies, raves, concerts, festivals, information tables, and more. The six main demands: stop all cannabis arrests; stop the lies; release the medicine; heal the sick; end the prison state; Cures Not Wars. See ibogaine. And Facebook: Ibogaine Universe!!!! See GMM links for many links for event maps, reports, crowd photos, videos, GMM graphics, press/media, 420 graphics, etc.. See flat lists. See GMM Facebook.

Detailed city list[edit | edit source]

Return to top.

The 2 main MMM city lists were combined alphabetically by using the "sort" command in the table menu of MS Word, or the modify/lines menu of the freeware/shareware NoteTab Light. Also, some cities were added here later from other sources. To shorten the length of this list some effort has been made at getting rid of some of the duplicate info. Also, around half of the email addresses that were originally on this page were deleted years ago when it was discovered that they no longer worked. Probably many more on this list now no longer work. See the archived city lists to see all the original email addresses. Check on working web sites linked below to find current email addresses. Also, look on later city lists, and on the individual city pages linked from Basic 2003 GMM city list.
