WORLD WIDE CANNABIS ACTION, Saturday, May 6th, 2000.



ALBUQUERQUE, New Mexico. Folks from all over the state and a few honored guests from distance lands

attended. We began with a wonderful Invocation by the Buddhist Rev. Yusen

Yamato, traveling with the Global Peace Walk, and started the March with at

least 500 people. As we passed storefronts and the UNM campus, we were joined by hundreds

more! One estimate, made by counting people between phone polls times the

number of polls we covered on the sidewalks on BOTH sides of the street,

came out at almost 1,000 marchers at our peak! Quite a diverse, all-ages

crowd, and certainly the largest single cannabis-focused event ever

conducted in New Mexico. There were no arrests. We have video and many pictures. Here's a small photo from

Yamato's Invocation:

Sadly, the bulk of the Burlington event was rained out. However, about 200

people still showed up from numerous states and there was a feeling of

commitment to action that I have not seen for many years. The old and

young, the sick and healthy were represented. We had better press coverage

than ever before - 3 TV interviews. All in all, it was a very successful

failure. (Dr. Robert Melamede), J6 Stonehedge Drive, South

DUNEDIN, NZ: rally at The Octagon, from 2pm. Presented by Dunedin branch of NORML NZ. Contact: or on 021 2954622 The Norml J-Day in the Octagon was a great success and

the biggest ever in Dunedin. Norml was in the Octagon

from 12.30 to 4.30 and attracted a cloud, sorry crowd,

of supporters that at its peak numbered around 250.

MELLOW MOMENT: These two supporters of moves to decriminalise cannabis were among about 100 who

joined a "J-Day" (Joint Day) rally at Victoria University on Saturday.

WELLINGTON J Day peaked at about 4-00pm with approx 500 people chilling on cookies, reggae and the

sweet smell of skunk. Michael Appleby delivered a rousing speech and Toni Jansen, co founder of

NORML was applauded for her efforts. Contact: or 025 377509
