      COALITION for the ABOLITION of MARIJUANA PROHIBITION

      ATLANTA CAMP is proud to announce its participation in the worldwide “GLOBAL CANNABIS MARCH”. The event is scheduled in Atlanta to begin at Freedom Park in Little Five Points on Saturday May 4th. The public will assemble @ 11:30 am in FREEDOM PARK on the southside of Moreland Avenue, in front of the Freedom Park sign.

      The MARCH is scheduled to begin at 11:30 am and will stay on the sidewalks to Findley Park in Little Five Points. From Findley Park the march will proceed southwest down Euclid Avenue to Inman Park at Euclid Avenue and Hurt Street. (behind the Inman Park MARTA station) If you didn't march with us ~ TAKE MARTA to the festival.

      THE GREAT ATLANTA POT FESTIVAL WILL BE HELD IN THE PARK.

      SPEAKERS, MUSIC and INFORMATION for cannabis reform efforts in Georgia will be featured in the Park. The public is invited to join us in support. We have had successful events in Findley Plaza for the last five years. In the past we have sponsored many events in Piedmont Park. In 1992, we assembled over 50,000 protesters in the park, with the help of local supporters like the Black Crowes. The festival was pivotal in breaking the nationwide media logjam against covering cannabis events like this one. Our events have been received favorably by local residents and businesses alike.

      MUSIC is to be provided by local artists and the event features local and national speakers on the subject of cannabis reform. Vendors and food vendors will be participating. It is scheduled to conclude at 7pm.

      The COALITION is a variety of local and national organizations united in protest against the present laws governing cannabis, with regards to the implementation of medicinal marijuana in Georgia (Georgia Legislation MMNA 1980), agricultural hemp, and the reform of present criminal penalties for possession and personal use of cannabis in the City of Atlanta and the State of Georgia.
