Marijuana veterans and dynamic heroes (l to r) Moori Bey, Sahshah Kambui and Himalaya discuss the success of the Los Angeles 14th Annual Global Marijuana March.

‘In one tent we had 70 year olds and 20 year olds and folks in between smoking together, united with one purpose, implement the hemp solution to every facet of our lives. We discussed radiation, pipes and fashions in the same conversation. Our hope for the future is now.’

To all who participated in form and in prayer and in lighting up wherever on the day of the march, we have overcome this day!

Sister Somayah Kambui, Founder, Los Angeles Global Marijuana March, 1999

The Late Sister Somayah Kambui, founder of the Los Angeles Global Marijuana March, with a group of local activists, produced the first LA march in 1999.

She was the Executive Producer of that and all the subsequent marches until her death in 2008, which happened after she lived her life expectancy of double plus 8 years with sickle cell. Her work in the fields of both hemp and sickle cell are legendary.

Sister Somayah remains an inspiration to many long term hemp activist who understand the power of just getting things done, no matter the obstacles.
