We would like to invite you to attend the “Texas Medical Marijuana 2011”
presentation and discussion organized and produced by The Texas Coalition for
Compassionate Care. http://www.texascompassion.com/
This Tuesday, July 27th, from 7:30-9:00pm, The Texas Coalition for
Compassionate Care will be hosting a presentation and discussion about the next
medical marijuana bill to be debated in Texas’ 82nd Legislative Session, which
begins in January.
This Texas Medical Marijuana 2011 presentation will be held at:
5555 N. Lamar, Suite L137
Austin, TX, 78751
Suite L137 in PSBusiness Parks complex (shown as Commerce Park on many maps)
near the intersection of Lamar and Koenig. The entrance is from Guadalupe
street, near 55th.
Over the past 10 years in Texas, an “affirmative defense” medical marijuana
bill has been pushed, first by Texans for Medical Marijuana (who sadly had to
close up shop) and then by The Texas Coalition for Compassionate Care.
We at Texas NORML would like to see a medical marijuana bill that, at the very
least, will protect patients from being arrested for possessing their medicine.
Also, we would like to see provisions made for medical marijuana patients to be
allowed to procure their medicine from legitimate sources, not the black market.
If you agree that should be a mandatory inclusion in a Texas Medical Marijuana
bill, please come to this meeting and join in the discussion.
I can say, from personal lobbying experience, that many of the elected
officials in Austin are concerned with passing a medical marijuana law that
doesn’t provide for legal avenues of obtaining that medicine. So, we would
like to see that concern alleviated with the next medical marijuana bill
introduced at the Capitol.
If you are a medical marijuana patient, you know someone who is, or you would
just like to see medical marijuana available in Texas, please mark your
calendar for this Tuesday, July 27th, 7:30pm, 5555 N. Lamar, Suite L137,
Austin, TX, 78751, and join us for this very important meeting.
Thanks for your continued support, and we will see you soon!
Executive Director, Texas NORML
