A march in support of marijuana legalization united thousands of Chileans, who walked through downtown Santiago on Sunday. The capital saw people openly smoking joints, citing the example of neighbor Uruguay, which officially legalized pot in May.

The demonstrators demanded the legalization of marijuana, decriminalization of consumption, including the right to grow marijuana for personal use.
