Hundreds of demonstrators on Monday marched from City Hall to the Wells Fargo Center – site of the Democratic National Convention – with a message calling for the legalization of marijuana.

In a bit of synchronicity, the pro-pot group was joined by supporters of Sen. Bernie Sanders at City Hall, melding together to create one large party moving down Broad Street.

Originally planned to begin before noon, the march's start time repeatedly was moved back as the demonstrators continued to gather at City Hall, all braving the oppressive city heat, clocking in at more than 95 degrees at 1:30 p.m.

Also joining the march were two 51-foot inflatable joints, intended to show the delegates in town that the participants support the decriminalization of cannabis.
