Are you ready for the biggest cannabis event in Texas?

DFW NORML Con 2014

The biggest cannabis event in Texas is only three weeks away.

DFW NORML will be putting on their second annual Texas Regional NORML Conference, a three day fun filled event full of speakers, panels, screenings, prizes, and parties.

Last year over 200 people attended the conference, this year the non-profit organization aims to make it bigger, better, and more efficient.

This will be the premier networking event for cannabis activists in Texas and will be highly educational and entertaining.

It all kicks off on Friday, June 6 with a party at Froggy’s Boat House, then everyone will get down to business Saturday morning at the Norris Conference Center in downtown Fort Worth. The after-party on Saturday will start at 5 p.m. next door at the Red Goose Saloon. Everything picks back up Sunday morning with a final party that evening at Shipping & Receiving. Conference hours for both days will be from 9:00 a.m. to 4:20 p.m.

There will be a number of bands performing at the after parties. Any bands interested in playing can contact callie@dfwnorml.org.

Many great speakers have already been lined up for the event and there will be a few surprises for those in attendance.
