DFW NORML Election Profile: Kevin Smith – Compliance Officer

Kevin Smith is seeking election as DFW NORML’s Compliance Officer.

He has been involved with the organization since April of 2014.

This is his first time to seek election. He has not held any duties.

Smith is the Director of Food and Beverage for the Irving Convention Center. He believes that this makes him uniquely qualified for the Compliance Officer position.

When asked why he spends his extra time working with DFW NORML, he states “my biggest fight is for medical cannabis. My son has a terminal disease that has caused him to have epilepsy. I am also a United States Army Veteran, fighting for my fellow Veterans who would benefit from medical cannabis.”

Asked how DFW NORML could improve upon what it already does, he responded “we need to focus on cleaning up our image. We have the stigma of being stoners to those that are on the fence for legalization and those that are completely against us. We need to change that image so they accept us and understand there are many positive aspects to the legalization of cannabis.”

He concluded with saying, “I believe I am qualified for this position as I am a father fighting for my son, a Veteran fighting for my fellow Veterans, and a Texan that has the time and experience to file the proper permits in a timely manner to help bring awareness to our movement.”
