Bakersfield,Ca. - Hundreds of people marched through Bakersfield on Saturday with signs that read "...the need for weed."

The local chapter of The National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws organized the March.

They walked from Beach Park to the Liberty Bell on Truxtun Avenue.

Members of the group carried signs showing support for marijuana reform, and bashed the DEA for raiding a local medical marijuana dispensary on Tuesday.

"People are out here for a great reason supporting something that needs to be changed, showing our legislators and our city and community members that we care about change, and marijuana legislation," said Jeoff Taylor, medicinal marijuana user.

"The DEA is acting like thieves and thugs, I really think they were, it's like un-American what they're doing, I think that they chose Nature's Medicinal because it's a very successful operation," said Douglas McAfee, NORML local chapter president.

No one was arrested in connection with Tuesday's medical marijuana raid.

Federal officials confiscated 50 pounds of marijuana worth an estimated $150,000.
