Call to Action: 16th Annual Global Cannabis March & Rally (Saturday, May 2, 2015 - 11am-6pm - Pioneer Courthouse Square, Portland - Featuring Mack & Dub & the Smokin' Section, The Sindicate, Mad Dabber & Bad Habitat. Sponsored by CRRH, KBOO Community Radio & Oregon NORML) The rally cry for 2015 is the need to end discrimination against cannabis consumers. Even after Measure 91 goes into effect, one can still lose their job, their housing, their doctor, their children and student benefits. Education is still important, as people won't understand the nuances of Measure 91 and some will continue to go to jail. Remember, Measure 91 was not a legalization initiative, it was simply a decriminalization initiative, now law. No Federal Scheduling (Removal of Cannabis from the Controlled Substances Act). The voters have spoken about social cannabis, but our representatives must all begin a major push to educate their fellows in Washington about the truth regarding cannabis. It is time for the federal government to remove cannabis from the Controlled Substances Act. America's reefer madness campaign is bust and must once and for all come to an end. Measure 91 Implementation & Legislative Updates Know Your Rights! * Am I free to go officer? * I do not consent to any searches. * I wish to remain silent. * I want to speak with my attorney.

Bio: Bands formed in high school rarely achieve long-standing success. The Sindicate is a significant exception. With a ferociously exciting sound inspired by reggae and grunge-rock, The Sindicate formed in senior year of high school out of eviction, when three members were kicked out of their parents...See Full Bio
"The Sindicate straddles the line between styles of music. The Vancouver, Wash., band — with Dominic Bianchini on vocals and rhythm guitar, Josh Garrett on lead guitar, Stephen Clark on bass and James Davenport on drums — released its second full-length album "Sasquatch" on Jan. 10, which, while mainly fueled by the laid-back sounds of reggae, finds the band injecting the aggressive stylings of grunge rock into its songs."
