We’re growing fast.

When we started the newest Tennessee Chapter a couple years ago we were proud when we first had 10 people show. This last meeting was more than 60 (Thanks all that attended!). We had dozens standing and many couldn’t get in and hung around outside. We had great speakers (see my earlier blog) and the excitement was high.

We need a larger venue. The Sunset Grill is great and it’s been a blessing to have such a place to use to further the cause of removing cannabis prohibition in Tennessee.

Does anyone know of a place that could hold up to 100? Please comment from this blog and we’ll check it out or click on the Contact Us button at the top of the page.

NORMLTN Visits Arkansas Music Festival

endprohibition-copyThis report in from NORMLTN’s Alex on a recent road trip.

Last weekend, I attended Wakarusa, a music festival in the Ozark Mountains in Arkansas. At the event, I came across a booth for Arkansas for Compassionate Care, the Arkansas group that pushed for medical marijuana legislation in the neighboring state of Arkansas.

While they lost by 1.7%, the close results are encouraging. In my discussion with one of their members, he noted the scientific survey that they had done, which told them the percentage of votes in support and against ahead of the election. He noted that this survey was right on the dot in terms of accuracy.

He noted that his group received $760,000 in funding from the Marijuana Policy Project. After this discussion, I came to the conclusion that TN NORML needs to establish relationships with reform groups at the national level. He explained to me that… Continue reading
