Texas could add pot activist groups in Beaumont, Abilene, Bryan/College Station, Rio Grande Valley, Amarillo
Texas NORML has been working hard to set up new marijuana activist groups all over Texas and so far has had great results. Now they’re turning their attention to five more locations.
If you live in Beaumont, Abilene, Bryan/College Station, Rio Grande Valley, or Amarillo, then Texas NORML is looking to connect you with other like-minded people in your area who wish to not only see cannabis law reform here in Texas, but to interact with and educate people in local communities about the various economical, scientific, and historical properties of marijuana.
Most recently, new groups have opened up in El Paso, Lubbock, and Corpus Christi. The outpouring of support in these communities were stronger than expected and it may surprise you to find that support in your local community is likely just as strong. People are only waiting for the opportunity to get involved with an organization.
Each group will carry the NORML name, which is National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws, and will be non-profit organizations complete with board members, official activity, events, etc.
So far the method for getting these groups off the ground has been very simple; Texas NORML creates event pages on Facebook which are intended as an initial meeting place for people in each area to talk with one another and begin coordinating. From there each individual group comes together to decide how to formally kick things off and begin working together. Texas NORML helps by guiding everyone through the process.
The links to each of these event groups are as follows:
Abilene – https://www.facebook.com/events/1399347600283086/
Amarillo – https://www.facebook.com/events/202154319990934/
Beaumont – https://www.facebook.com/events/775206989174680/
Bryan/College Station – https://www.facebook.com/events/613437982034133/
Rio Grande Valley – https://www.facebook.com/events/154232154773722/
If you live in any of these areas, simply visit the page for your group and you can start connecting and asking any questions you may have.
You can also visit Texas NORML’s website for more information on them as well at TexasNORML.org.
Last year, Texas NORML, along with several other NORML organizations from around Texas were the leading activists who lobbied the Texas legislature in attempts to pass marijuana related bills. Not only are they involved in their local communities, but they also put on activist training events and equip everyone with the knowledge and skills needed to become successful in changing minds and laws.
