"Omaha's 3rd GMM (Mistakenly called the 2nd march, because there was no marching the first year) May 2nd AND 9th:
both days of cannabis celebration went SUP-HERB-LY! About 400 people got their names on a list to get active in NE, the weather was heaven-sent, and the police were very OK. The march down Howard street got a little difficult when the sidewalk was very full of people so we went into the empty street until we got told not to do that by the police, but still, that went peacefully and we got on our way. This made me visit the police station AGAIN to THANK the police for being so nice on our day there, AND TO ASK ABOUT CLOSING THE STREET NEXT YEAR FOR A REAL MARCH!!! It was all a beautiful time, and it will be a bigger event next year, with tents and tables, just like we should have."

Omaha: Melvin Usher melvinusher(at)aol.com (402) 408-9746 . 1 PM to 5 PM Central Park Mall. Live Music. Bands, drumming circle, poetry, costumes.

GMM:

The rally was on Sunday, May 4 and was scheduled to go from 1pm-5pm. As soon as I got to the meeting spot I would say there was roughly thirty-five or more people there, which wasn't as much as I hoped. So I suggested we walk around the park for a bit. When we came back I would estimate there to have been over one hundred people there, and more approaching. Luckily we ran into a lady who seemed to be the one organizing the rally, and she gave us some signs to hold. There people of all sorts honking and giving us thumbs up. It was really enlightening to see people, successful businessmen at that, waving their arms out the window in celebration of the rally. In fact, there was a wedding right down the street and a brand new Cadillac Escalade pulled up to the corner by the rally and a older gentleman actually bought a bandanna from one of the guys protesting, and drove past the police waving it out of the window at him.

Then the march through the businesses downtown began. It was amazing how many people stood up and marched with us weaving a route through downtown. Everyone was pretty cool about us marching and chanting too, some places actually participated and chanted with us. There was only one real problem the whole time. As we crossed a street that had the proper walk signal, a old man in a car with his wife slammed the gas pedal and hit the guy in front of me. Which by the way was at a red light. Thankfully the guy rolled a crossed the hood and was not harmed, but he sure did want to harm the man in the vehicle.

All in all I believe I learned a lot about this culture. Everyone was very chill and did not let hecklers get to them, they just replied back by saying "peace and love" and numerous other phrases supporting peace. It was definitely an experience worth experiencing.

2007 Edit

GMM:

We held the GMM rally in Omaha, Nebraska, Saturday May 5th from 1 PM to 5 PM. A permit was issued (free) for the event. About 70 to 80 people attended. No sign of police or press. We were politely ignored. No arrests or tickets issued. Only 3 old hippies were there (including myself). The crowd was upbeat and cheerful. Enthusiastic about next year. We only had two weeks to plan this (our first time). I was told that other pot related events will be held this year locally. Also a young lady is going to start a NORML chapter here in Omaha. Thanks to everyone involved!

See articles: Cannabis prisoners and Drug war cost charts, infographics..
The majority of people incarcerated in prisons and jails in the USA are in due to drug-related offenses, crimes to get money for drugs, or drug-related parole or probation violations. Wikipedia: Drug-related crime. The number of inmates in the USA has increased almost 5 times over since 1980. The USA has the highest incarceration rate of any nation b c (except for the tiny country of the Seychelles). Compare incarceration rates worldwide. The cost of the U.S. drug war is at least 1.5 trillion dollars. Cannabis is safer! Share link.

The Global Marijuana March is the first Saturday in May. The first Saturday in May is also World Naked Gardening Day. [117]. But, be safe!

Republicans think they can spend an infinite amount of money (many trillions of dollars) on health-insurance-company-based healthcare, and have an infinite number of babies, to feed their appetite for endless ground wars, and for more inmates for more prisons for more drug war.
