TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - A few people from around the state of Florida gathered in front of the Historic Capital on Wednesday to rally for the legalization of marijuana. 

Organizers of the “I Am Not A Criminal Rally” say they are focused on ending the prohibition of cannabis by raising awareness about how laws against marijuana use impact families. 

"When you ask anyone in Florida, especially the rural areas about opportunities, they will always tell you cannabis has always been and will always be the crop of opportunity, so we want to bring the need to grow in Florida," said Mellisa Lozano of Normal Tallahassee. 

Event organizers say they will continue to find ways to raise awareness to lawmakers and create legislation that legalizes the use of marijuana in Florida.
