Join us for Eeyore’s Birthday Party on Saturday, April 25th at Pease Park for TEXAS NORML’s third annual Flash Mob.

To get to the event, park at the garages on 1650 Colorado St, Austin, TX 78701. PARKING IS FREE. Take the FREE shuttle to the FREE event.

Everyone meet in the open field across from the long line of port-o-potties, near the main drum circle. The field is just north of the playgrounds and south of the Y in the trail.

We will be holding up a flag to identify ourselves so that people are able to see us amidst the fun chaos that is Eeyore’s birthday.

Let’s make this year the biggest and best flash mob yet! :)

**************************************************************
Show up at 4:19 – ON THE DOT.
***************************************************************
If you are late you WILL miss it. Please wear your favorite NORML ATTIRE (shirt, hat, pins, etc) or anything GREEN or CANNABIS related for a minute of silence where we will “hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil.”

EACH PARTICIPANT WILL COVER THEIR EYES, EARS OR MOUTH for the full minute of silence.

The Drug War and its numerous victims can no longer be ignored. Texas can no longer keep its head in the sand.

After which we can all go forth and enjoy 4:20!

Puff, Puff, Pass!

Marijuana March & Rally @ Texas State Capitol
May 9 @ 12:00 pm – 4:00 pm

SAVE THE DATE!

Come participate with Texas NORML in Austin Texas as we march to the Texas Capitol Building in solidarity with our compatriots worldwide. Help us bring attention to the failed Drug War and the failed drug policy of prohibition.

We will meet at City Hall and march down Congress and up to the Capitol’s South Steps where we will hold a rally. Patients will lead the March with a banner. Veteran’s are encouraged to wear hats, shirts or ribbons identifying their military service and dedication.

It is important that all Texans from all cities come and show their support for drug law reform and help us keep the eye of the media and our lawmakers on this critically important issue.

Remember, the problem is the LAW, not the plant!

Please share this event with all of your Texan friends. :) We will have some signs but please feel free to make your own and bring it.
