Dozens of cannabis supporters flooded the Charlottesville downtown mall to rally in favor of legalizing marijuana in Virginia.
The rally attendees had one message: legalization.
“I wanted to spread the importance of cannabis liberation,” said rally organizer Jes Vegas. “Specifically marijuana legalization, medical marijuana accessibility and local political advocacy.”
Vegas says she held the rally at the Freedom Wall to remind supporters that their voices matter.
“It is very important for people to speak up and share their message with their legislators,” said Vegas. “That is the most proactive way in this movement.”
