Texas NORML Announces Dates for Capitol Meet and Greet, Advocacy

Texas NORML will be kicking off the Lone Star State's 2019 legislative session with several events. From planning a meet and greet with state lawmakers and organizing an advocacy workshop, to hosting a lobby day that's expected to draw hundreds of Texans from all corners of the state, it's going to be a very busy and exciting year for marijuana law reform advocates!

We already have a lot of events on the calendar for 2019. Check out few highlights below!
Tuesday, January 8, 2019 – Opening Day – Capitol Meet & Greet
Join Texas NORML and Texans for Responsible Marijuana Policy at the Capitol on the first day of the 86th legislative session! Opening day is one of ceremony and gratitude. It’s a great day to visit your legislator’s Capitol office and meet his/her staff. It’s not a day for lobbying, but certainly offers an opportunity to enrich your relationship with your legislators. Complimentary Breakfast Thanks to GRAV Labs!
