Getting Ready To Visit The Legislature, Jan 2014?
NORMLTN Oct. 6, 2013 Meeting Notes.
The monthly meeting of NORMLTN at the Sunset Grill, 2001 Belcourt Ave, Nashville TN 37212 was well attended with a crisp agenda and several notable speakers.
NORMLTN President Doak Turner spoke about an initiative to lower the priority of pot busts in Nashville, Francis updated the audience about the success of our Facebook page likes, Colleen spoke on an industrial hemp progress towards the legislature, Alex spoke on plans to have a NORMLTN benefit concert, Bernie spoke on parts of Tennessee’s medical marijuana bill being successfully utilized by several states and the country of Uruguay. John spoke on NORMLTN’s upcoming meeting with MMJ bill sponsor, Legislator Sherry Jones. Katrina spoke on working with a TN doctor’s cannabis advocacy education efforts.
These are exciting days for NORMLTN and we need your help in convincing all Tennessee State Senators that it’s time to change cannabis laws when the Legislature begins in 2014. There will be two bills to track closely. One for industrial hemp sponsored by Rep Faison and a medical marijuana bill sponsored by Rep. Sherry Jones.
She offered us excellent advice on how YOU lobbying your state representatives can make or break the success of those bills. Come to our next monthly meeting Sun Nov 3 at Sunset Grill 2 p.m. to learn more!
