PORTLAND -- Several hundred people marched through Portland to mark the 15th annual Global Cannabis March, an event to advocate for marijuana reforms.

The march on Saturday is also being held in dozens of other cities worldwide -- from New York City to Toronto to Jakarta.

The events' goal is to bring an end to the failed war on cannabis.

Oregon marijuana activists are collecting signatures for two 2014 ballot measures, including one to legalize the use of recreational marijuana for adults.
