WAMM March for Medical Marijuana

The Wo/Men’s Alliance for Medical Marijuana, supporting organizations and the community at large sponsored the WAMM March for Medical Marijuana on Saturday, July 16, 2005 at 12 noon on the Pacific Garden Mall, in downtown Santa Cruz.

In a symbolic act of compassionate access, WAMM patient members led the march holding live cannabis plants. This solemn event honored the 154 WAMM members who have died since WAMM’s inception in 1993.
