    1. How many of the legislators in Georgia will attend the NoRmL Mid-Atlantic Regional Conference??? Probably none.

      Is that pathetic or what? However its what we’ve come to expect from the leadership in the State of Georgia. We use to refer to it as the GREAT State of Georgia, but that was definitely in the past. Who among you will lead this battle in the state of Georgia? Wheres all that southern grit we hear about? Where are you??

      Are you not meant to be trying to change laws here in the UK? So why are you wasting money having a conference in the USA? Surly having a big conference in the UK would be better so the British public actually know who you are and what your about, but you have a nice jolly in the states because that will help the campaign.

    3. NORML is the NATIONAL Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws, we are based in the United States as an organization working to change domestic marijuana laws, have been since 1970.

      We have a group who affiliated with NORML in UK (NORMLUK – http://norml-uk.org/) they are a local group in the United Kingdom working on the laws there. They are not involved in this event.
