This weekend's Global Marijuana March aims to change the narrative of cannabis culture. 

This Saturday, El Pasoans are invited to find out more about the benefits and laws surrounding the medicinal herb.  

Since 2014, El Pasoans have been taking part in the Global Marijuana March to start the conversation and educate the public about the benefits of marijuana as a whole while opening the lines of communication that will put an end to the negative stereotypes and stigmas of marijuana use.
