Marijuana Policy Reform – Constituent Advocacy Day

Wednesday, February 8, 2017

Texas State Capitol, John H. Reagan Building
1400 Congress Avenue
Austin, Texas 78701
(Register below.)

Texans of all political persuasions agree:
It’s time for marijuana law reform!

With our lawmakers meeting for only 140 days every two years, we have a lot of work to do in a short period of time. Your participation is critical to changing laws relating to marijuana in Texas.

Our Constituent Advocacy Day is a participatory event where we, the people, will engage our legislators and their staff.  Professional attire only, please.TXAdvoAd2

Participants will focus on:

  • reducing penalties for low-level possession of marijuana, and
  • bringing seriously ill patients safe and legal access to medical cannabis.

All materials will be provided as well as a legislative briefing and advocacy training for those who have never visited the Capitol. We will break up into lobby teams to visit. Collectively, we will visit with every legislative office in the Capitol!

Please be sure to dress professionally. (You can consider the standard to be how you would dress for a job interview.)

Our broad coalition and united efforts will bring about more responsible marijuana policies in the Lone Star State. Will you join us for Advocacy Day on Feb. 8? Register today!
