Chileans march for marijuana legalisation

(ROUGH CUT ONLY - NO REPORTER NARRATION) Thousands of Chileans took to the streets of downtown Santiago to show their support of legalizing marijuana on Saturday (May 18). An estimated 30,000 people participated in the ninth annual pro-marijuana march. The last cannabis-specific legislation to make it through the Chilean Congress was approved in 2005, after a failed bill was proposed in 2003 partially decriminalizing marijuana for personal and private consumption. The legislation penalised its use in groups and the growth of the plant and its delivery and sale in any form. Support for full legalization has been growing with some 79 percent of respondents in one recent survey in favour of legalizing cannabis.
