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.

Those interested can also connect with others in the area by visiting the Facebook event page.

    Well I hope you get all you can every little bit counts. Maybe some time we will all get this barbaric law removed. Again good luck to all of you.

    I wish I had heard about this before now. I would really interested in participating. Maybe Beaumont will get another chance at this and with a little more advertising, we can make a big statement here!
