Thousands march for pot legalization in Medellín, Colombia.
Organizers of the march also encouraged participants to bring non-perishables and hygiene utensils for victims of the rain season in the region.
Thousands marched through the streets of the second most important city in Colombia, waving flags and pacifically chanting for the legalization of marijuana, and the right to develop their personalities freely.
“Like in past marches, we are demanding respect, so people realize that we are not a nuisance, but we contribute to society” said marcher Juan Uribe.
Medellín was not the only place where pro-legalization marches took place; Buenos Aires, Rio de Janeiro, Montevideo, Santiago, Ciudad de México and Toronto also saw smokers go into the streets and manifest their discontent with the current policy on the herb.
