The March for Legal Marijuana

A few scenes from today's march for legal marijuana - at least for medical purposes.

Leading the marijuana army.
For years, one was allowed to carry up to onegram of cocaine and five grams of marijuana 'for personal use.' The law was reversed during Alvaro Uribe's presidential term because some police said that dealers escaped justice by carrying only that small amount.

'Yes to the personal dosis.' (And then, for sure, we'll stop at our medical dosis.

Something's in the air.

The police, more used to arresting and shaking down those they catch with pot, escort the protesters.
