Texas NORML hopes to build new chapter in El Paso


Citing a need to have a presence in every area of the state, Texas NORML, a statewide non-profit marijuana reform group, has been working hard to encourage the rise of new chapters across Texas. They now have their sights set on El Paso.

Executive Director Cheyanne Weldon will be in town to speak at the Border Legislative Conference which will be held on Saturday, September 7. While she is in town she hopes to meet with people who are interested in forming a new chapter and help give them some direction as well as talk about statewide strategy for legalization in Texas.

The meetup to start El Paso NORML will be a lunch discussion held at La Terraza Mexican Restaurant from 1 p.m. to 3. A translator will be in attendance for those who do not speak English. Everyone is encouraged to attend and the event will be child friendly.

Food and drinks are ordered at your own expense, however information and networking will be in abundance.

New chapters have been forming all around the state and have received warm welcomes from their communities, the latest being Hub City NORML in Lubbock, which drew over 500 people to their first event.
