Nearly 3 dozen show for first marijuana activist meeting in Killeen

Kileen Meeting March

Activists from around the Killeen area came out to Taquerias Mexico for the first ever NORML Alliance meeting to discuss marijuana policy in Texas this past Wednesday.

While many knew one another, there were also new faces amongst the 29 in attendance. This offered attendees the opportunity to network and build what will likely be strong relations in the area for some time to come.

David Bass who is the Veterans Outreach Director with Texas NORML was on hand to speak, and the group also discussed ways to get involved with grass roots activism. They also talked about forming alliances with other groups such as Marijuana Policy Project and Drug Policy Alliance. Various legislative pursuits were discussed as well.

The group will hold their next meeting on Wednesday, April 23 beginning at 7 p.m. at The Old Chicago in Killeen.
