10th Annual Texas Marijuana March at the Capitol

10th Annual Texas Marijuana March at the Capitol

Saturday, May 13th, 2017

Support This Critical Issue By Attending!

Come participate with Texas NORML in Austin, Texas as we march to the Texas Capitol Building in support of cannabis law reform. Texas is currently in the 85th Legislative Session with multiple marijuana reform bills filed and progressing through the process. Since this event will be held on the South Steps of the Capitol Building, it is important that Texans turn out to show the powerful support this issue has.

We will meet at City Hall at Noon. The March will start at 12:40pm. We will march down Congress and up to the Capitol’s South Steps where we will hold the rally at 1:15pm. Please note that there are other events scheduled around ours at both City Hall and the Capitol so please be punctual.

Patients will lead the March with a banner. (Any patients unable to participate in the March are encourage to meet at the South Steps.) Veterans are encouraged to wear hats, shirts or ribbons identifying their military service and dedication.

Bring an umbrella for shade (or protection from the rain) while you march. We will provide water at the Capitol Building Steps. We will have some signs but please feel free to make your own and bring it. Kid Friendly!

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

PARKING

City Hall – City Hall has a parking garage at 301 W 2nd Street under City Hall Building. It is first come first serve parking. There is handicapped parking in the garage. There will also be several other parking lots in the area and surface street parking.
