Waco NORML holds food drive, talks CBD bill

NORML of Waco Meeting January 2016

NORML of Waco collected a box of dry food that will be donated to a group that helps feed children who have an incarcerated parent at their January meeting.

About 17 people were in attendance at the West Waco Library and Genealogy Center to hear updates on the recently passed CBD medical marijuana regulations for Texans with epilepsy, and other business. Executive Director Clif Deuvall briefed attendees on the various costs and requirements for starting and working for a medical cannabis business in Texas.

Devuall remarked at one point “this is definitely not where we will be stopping, and we will be pushing for better legislation in 2017, legislation that will benefit the many Texans who suffer and can receive so much relief from this plant.”

“We also introduced three new board members who will help lead our non-profit organization into 2016” says Stephen Carter, the group’s Deputy Director. “We appreciate people taking that next step in their activist lives and becoming leaders.”

A generous group of Texas veterans also have made it possible for the group to continue their advertisements in the local American Classifieds for the remainder of 2016 due to a generous donation.

Also discussed was Operation Trapped and a signature drive aimed at getting Texas Governor Greg Abbott to sit down and meet with a group of Texas veterans to discuss the need for a medical cannabis program.

Abbot stated last year as he signed the CBD bill that there would be no further legalization of marijuana during his time in office, whether it be medically or recreationally.
