Two full days of activities will be packed with educational speakers and panels, a documentary film screening, 420 Jeopardy, parties, giveaways, a vendor hall, and several surprises for conference attendees.

Speakers at #dfwnormlcon include Texas patients, parents, politicians, activists, legal and medical professionals, and members of the media.

A few notable names include:
