 Asbury Park, NJ – A special weekend-long cannabis-themed event will be taking place at various venues throughout the city of Asbury Park September 11–13. Called Higher Ground because of its emphasis on empowering cannabis consumers through education and connectivity, the event includes a series of informative talks and social gatherings. It is free to attend and is endorsed by the Coalition for Medical Marijuana New Jersey (CMMNJ).

Higher Ground was created in part as a reaction to city officials’ admirable declaration of support for cannabis and their passage of a resolution calling on Governor Christie and the State Legislature to legalize, tax, and regulate it.


After a welcome gathering on Friday night, Saturday’s events will kick off at noon and include a walkable circuit around Cookman Avenue of venues where speakers will be giving talks throughout the day on topics pertaining to medical marijuana and the future of cannabis culture in New Jersey. Saturday night will feature a special networking event as well as hand-picked musical performances. Speakers will continue through 4 p.m. on Sunday the 13th.


Higher Ground is an independent initiative uniting local businesses with speakers andhigher ground logo artists. The purpose of the event is “empowerment through education”—enabling all comers to obtain accurate information about cannabis and the changing legal landscape in New Jersey and across the country. Featured speakers include CMMNJ Executive Director Ken Wolski, activist and Liberty Bell Temple III proprietor Ed Forchion (aka NJWeedman), Geno Caignon of NJ NORML’s South Jersey division, Rowyn Capers from NJ NORML’s Women’s Alliance, and Help Not Handcuffs founder Randy Thompson, who delivered the presentation to the Asbury Park City Council that resulted in their declaration of support for cannabis law reform.


The event is free and open to the public. For those who wish to stay in town overnight there is a range of hotels to suit most every budget, and prices are generally lower after Labor Day weekend. Those who wish to participate can visit for updates and location announcements as well as the event’s Facebook page,

 Legalize Marijuana Rally

Come out on Saturday, October 18, to the NJ State House for a parade and rally to support the legalization of marijuana in NJ.

This rally will include potheads, NJ Medical Marijuana Patients, cannabis consumers, politicians, parents of sick children who need medical marijuana, and anyone against the current NJ laws on cannabis.

This is a legalization rally but will also support any progressive measures on marijuana, including a more compassionate medical marijuana program - But this rally is a demand for the Full Legalization of Marijuana.

We will ride the trains and buses to Trenton to CONFRONT Governor Christie.

The "Parade of the People" will begin at 2:00 PM at the Riverline train station. NJ Weedman will lead the march up Clinton street make left at State street and march on to the NJ statehouse, where we will join those already gathered in front of the Statehouse steps at 3:00 PM with speeches, special prayers and ingesting of our sacrament at 4:20 PM!

At 4:20 PM, we will smoke in unison across the street from the NJ State Building in a defiant act of Civil Disobedience. Those who dont want to smoke can stand across the street in support. Over 150 people did this at the 4/20 rally on Easter in front of police officers, and no one was harassed or arrested. The philosophy of Gandhi and Martin Luther King, Jr. is that with large numbers the people have the power to successfully confront the decision-makers. We plan to implement this at the state capitol. COME JOIN US!

Help us send a message to the world we in New Jersey have had enough of Christie and his Reefer Madness mentality. The national press will cover this event!
