Five Thousand Texans March In Support of Legalized Marijuana

North Texans in support of medical and recreational use of marijuana took to the streets in Dallas Saturday for a cannabis rally.

Nearly five thousand people were in attendance to help bring awareness to marijuana law reform efforts in Texas.

Organizers for the event said the march allows people to come together and actively further the discussion about marijuana in the state.

McAlister also argued that weed can be taxed and regulated.
