Get somebody to remember this for you: A Million Marijuana March in Cleveland


Fight the power, march for pot.
If you’re suffering from glaucoma and have for years been patiently waiting for the legalization of marijuana to ease your pain – or if you just really like getting baked and watching Escape to Chimp Eden in HD – mark your calendars: May 3 is your day… Laura Kosa, the totally chill host of’s Laura 420 show, has somehow secured the proper permits to hold a Million Marijuana March downtown that Saturday. In protest of Ohio’s pot laws, which are way harsh, stoners of all colors and creeds will gather in Public Square and then march to the Justice Center, where they’ll get stoned, order a bunch of Stuffed Crust Pizzas, and discuss the thematic underpinnings of Harold & Kumar Escape from Quantanamo Bay. “If you get arrested, you get arrested,” says Kosa, whose lawyers happily bail her out because she always gets the best shit. But, she cautions, don’t expect her rotate her green your way. “It’s BYOB,” she says. “Bring Your Own Bud.” Editor’s note: If you’ve already started furiously drafting a letter about how medicinal marijuana is a serious issue and shouldn’t be trivialized by a two-bit rag that’s so worthless it gives itself away, please consider Kosa’s rationale for alerting Scene before other news outlets: “Everybody who parties reads the Scene.” —Mr. Joseph Tone, Esquire
