Beaumont marijuana activist group in the works
A meeting will be held Saturday, March 15 to gauge the interest of people in the Beaumont area for starting a NORML chapter.
There are currently several non-profit chapters of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws spread throughout Texas, and recent efforts have been made to start up new activist groups.
Two men recently spoke with the local news in Beaumont about their interest in getting a group of people together.
Corey Mendes and Royce Abrego told News 12 that adding a NORML chapter in Southeast Texas would help better inform the public on marijuana laws in the state.
The meeting is planned for Saturday at Logon Café in Beaumont at 6 p.m. Mendes invites all supporters and non-supporters of legalization to attend.
