FORT WORTH - In what was perhaps the largest legalize marijuana
demonstration in Fort Worth, more than 200 activists marched through
downtown Saturday with the noticeable aroma of cannabis lingering

Organizers said several hundred more had turned out last year for a
similar march in Dallas, which had provided police security.

demonstrators, carried signs, some openly toking on pipes and
chanting, "Le-gal-ize! Le-gal-ize!"
One person dressed as a marijuana plant and several played
instruments while a march organizer drove a recycled police car with
flashing green lights and covered with logos of the Dallas/Fort Worth
chapter of NORML, the national group to reform cannabis laws.
