Brad Kava/Santa Cruz Patch
Each of these “tombstones” represents one of hundreds of WAMM patients who needed marijuana for medicinal reasons.

‚ÄčThe first thing that visitors to the ninth annual WAMM Festival saw on Saturday was a mock graveyard. Hundreds of tombstones memorialized critically ill patients whose lives were helped by medical marijuana.

The visual gave a message to the hundreds of people who strolled through San Lorenzo Park in Santa Cruz for the Wo/Men’s Alliance for Medical Marijuana‘s annual festival, reports Brad Kava at the Santa Cruz Patch. That message was that critically ill people need help from cannabis, which remains illegal for any purpose at the federal level, despite having been legalized for medicinal use in 16 states.
