Lowell Protesters demonstrate against pot dispensaries

“Prohibitionists” against marijuana are alive and well in Massachusetts. They’re a growing army.  Hundreds of people participated in a Peace March from Lowell Auditorium to Lowell City Hall on September 28 to demonstrate concerns about marijuana in the city.

Many people held signs, proclaiming “We have a Dream,” and “Keep Kids Safe.”   One sign proclaimed a “War on Addiction.”  Organizers planned the march to express problems associated with the  marijuana stores in the City of Lowell.

Many in the immigrant community joined the group.   How can anyone live the American dream, if a community promotes drug use?

After the march, several people gave speeches in front of city hall, explaining their opposition to marijuana.  They talked about psychosis and suicide, and the deaths of young people.  

We found many photos on the website for Citywide Ministries Network of Greater Lowell.   Other groups joined in the march. The turnout was huge. 

Lowell, the fourth largest in Massachusetts, lies 30 miles north of Boston.   

Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker took a courageous step last week, banning all vaping products, for four months. The CDC warned that 77% of the lung illnesses from vaping were from marijuana vapes, some of which were mixed with nicotine.
