Flocking to the streets of Mexico City were people in the thousands marching for their right to smoke marijuana and the decriminalization of the drug. This is the 13th annual Marijuana March and the huge crowds chanted and screamed down the streets. Growth in the demand for illegal drugs has seen a huge wave of escalating violence as gangs battle to be the top dog in the billion dollar drug industry. An estimated 70,000 people have been killed in turf wars between drug gangs and clashes between the cartels and security forces. Video Courtesy Of Reuters
