J Day is Sat 3 May 2003

J Day is Sat 3 May 2003 in Auckland, Levin, Wellington, Christchurch, Dunedin + 220 cities around the world!

legalise cannabis | heal the sick | stop the arrests | end the police state | make hemp, not war

J Day is part of the 6th Annual International Celebration of Cannabis and Rally Against Prohibition, now happening in over 220 cities around the world on Saturday 3rd May. It is especially important that supporters of rational, evidence-based drug policy come "out of the closet" to J Day and show their support, as the cannabis inquiry is finally nearing completion. We need to demonstrate there is public support for law reform - send the politicians a message they can't ignore!
