People from around the west Texas area came together on Saturday, Aug. 9 to protest and sign wave in Odessa to support reforming marijuana laws.

The group was comprised of people who are interested in launching a non-profit organization in the area called Permian Basin NORML. Once approved by the state, it would be a local chapter of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws.

The event had two sessions, one in the morning, and another in the evening.

Five people were involved with the morning session, which was held at JBS Parkway and 42nd Street. The evening session included 6 people, held at Grandview and 42nd Street. Each session lasted an hour and a half.

Lydia Decker, the woman pushing to get the organization off the ground, said that “though our numbers were small, we had lots of honks, waves, thumbs up, and compliments coming from the passing traffic! We even had people pull up and park and come talk to us, asking questions and picking up business cards for our website.”

Decker also reports that there was one person who walked up to the group in disagreement with what they were doing, but after speaking with them, the person was open to changing their mind and asked for more information.

The group plans to begin doing this twice a month, once every other week.
