Join Virginia NORML at the Northside Library, May 10th at 7pm for the Jefferson Area NORML May meeting. The suggested donation for all meetings is $10.
This month we will discuss NORML Congressional Lobby Day, Freedom Leaf’s Presidential Primary NORML Membership Drive, and how you can actively support changing Virginia’s marijuana laws through Virginia NORML, Cannabis Commonwealth and Virginia Republicans Against Marijuana Prohibition.
We are excited to have finalized the agenda for our 2016 National Conference and Congressional Lobby Day! Day one will include panel discussions on a variety of topics, including the prospects of marijuana law reform in the 114th Congress, the ongoing experience with legalization in Colorado, Washington, and other states, and post prohibition concerns for marijuana consumers. Throughout the day attendees will hear policy experts from NORML, the Marijuana Policy Project, the National Cannabis Industries Association, and many others.
On Tuesday morning attendees will meet on Capitol Hill for a morning reception to hear from our allies in Congress who are leading federal marijuana law reform efforts. Following that, attendees will separate into groups based on voting district/state and together will visit their federally elected officials offices to discuss with them the importance of ending the federal prohibition of marijuana.
Please participate in this historic lobbying effort in our nation’s capital at this crucial time in the law reform effort as cannabis prohibition increasingly gives way to legalization. Our day-long training and informational conference on Monday will be held at 1957 E Street.
If your organization would like to help support NORML’s 2016 Congressional Lobby Day please consider becoming a sponsor.
