Waco marijuana group cleans up adopted highway

Waco NORML January Hwy CleanupA clean highway is a beautiful highway, and a group in Waco dedicated to marijuana law reform headed out this last Saturday to clean up their adopted stretch of road.

Members of NORML of Waco got together on Highway 164, located between Mart and Highway 6, to pick up trash and perform service for their community.

Picking up tire treads, litter, and a collection of other items travelers toss out of their vehicles, several hundred pounds of garbage was collected.

It was a warm, beautiful day for January and over a two hour time period this group of activists worked not only to make their community a better place to live in, but to break stereotypes placed on the marijuana community.

The group aims to have their next cleanup during the month of March for the Texas Trashoff, where they anticipate dozens of people coming out to make Texas a cleaner place to live.

Live in the Waco area? Attend their next event at Comfort Suites which will feature the documentary ‘Bringing it Home’, an hour-long story of hemp: past, present and future. Get more information about it at their event page.
