NORML of Waco Birthday Bash represents new vibe in Central Texas
Waco was kickin’ Saturday night as locals and people from across the state turned out to listen to live music and be amongst like-minded people at the NORML of Waco fourth anniversary party.
Held at Lakeside Tavern, the event drew over 200 people to the outdoor venue and made it a grand success for the Central Texas chapter.
With a laid back atmosphere, everyone was friendly and it represented a much needed new tone for Waco.
The bands kicked off at 8:30 and put out some awesome music including rock and reggae vibes with a little harmonica thrown in to perform covers including Last Dance with MaryJane and many originals.
Tables were setup by sponsors which included merchandise and information.There were also raffles which gave people to opportunity to get some choice glass and other goodies.

As people walked around with their pot leaf necklaces there were no dirty looks and nothing seemed out of place, even as people came into the party without knowing that a marijuana law reform organization was throwing it.
In fact, many were pleasantly surprised and happy to hear that there were locals fighting to get rid of costly and ineffective laws.
A positive night and an indicator of the success to come, NORML of Waco threw a great party and will surely be making the news again as it works to bring more people into the movement and educate about the cannabis plant, the laws, and how to change them for the better.
Leaders from around the state are already planning their 2015 state legislative efforts, even after just finishing the 2013 session which saw both a medical defense bill and penalty reduction proposal make it into committees.
Get active and get involved with your local organization today, it takes each and every one of us to make this world a better place.
