Description
SAVE THE DATE!

Come participate with Texas NORML in Austin Texas as we march to the Texas Capitol Building in solidarity with our compatriots worldwide. Help us bring attention to the failed Drug War and the failed drug policy of prohibition.

We will meet at City Hall and march down Congress and up to the Capitol's South Steps where we will hold a rally. Patients will lead the March with a banner. Veterans are encouraged to wear hats, shirts or ribbons identifying their military service and dedication.

It is important that all Texans from all cities come and show their support for drug law reform and help us keep the eye of the media and our lawmakers on this critically important issue.

Remember, the problem is the LAW, not the plant!

Please share this event with all of your Texan friends. :) We will have some signs but please feel free to make your own and bring it.
