Advocates of legalizing marijuana gathered in Duluth on Sunday to have their voices heard.

The event was hosted by the Minnesota chapter of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML). The speakers, film clips and songs all focused on legalizing marijuana for recreational use.

An assistant professor of biochemistry in Duluth, Andy Skildum, said it's not about getting the public on board with the cause.

"The message really needs to get to the policymakers because they are way behind on this issue," he said. "I think that the people of Minnesota, if it was put to a popular vote, it would probably pass overwhelmingly. And we need to get that message to the legislators and particularly to Governor Dayton."
