    take_actionNORML’s 2017 Conference at the Capitol Hilton in Washington, DC and Congressional Lobby Day at the United States Capitol is scheduled for September 10th-12th. Hundreds of marijuana consumers, activists, patients and business owners are expected to attend a day-long training and informational conference on Monday and re-convene on The Hill Tuesday to personally lobby their elected members of the House of Representatives and Senate.

    Whether you’re a longtime activist, college student, medical marijuana patient, or simply a NORML supporter, consider taking this all important step to directly lobby your members of Congress in support of common sense marijuana law reform. During your stay, you will meet and network with like minded activists from across the country, and your time on Capitol Hill will ensure that our message is brought face-to-face to those in Congress who need to hear it the most.

    We will be lobbying for expanded protections for those states that have reformed their laws, and to protect the progress that we have made from Attorney General Jeff Sessions and his rogue Justice Department. Time and time again, AG Sessions has made it clear that he thinks those of us who consume cannabis are “not good people.” We will be in the halls of Congress to set the record straight.

    The DMV NORML Social, benefiting DC, Virginia, and Maryland Chapters of NORML, will be held on Sunday, September 10, at The Dew Drop Inn, located at 2801 8th St NE, Washington, DC 20017 — a five minute walk from the Brookland-CUA Redline Metro Stop.

    The Conference portion of the event will be held Monday, September 11th at the Capitol Hilton which is located at 1001 16th St NW. It is walking distance from the Farragut West, Farragut North, and McPherson Square Metro Stations, and the Hilton is easily accessible from the Red, Blue, Orange, or Silver Metro Lines.

    The NORML Monday Night Party location details will be given to registered attendees in the weeks leading up to the event.

    See you in September,

      Citizen lobbying is the single most important, empowering thing we can do as marijuana reform activists. Congress works for us. And they need to hear from their constituents. Federal Congress alone must clean up the CSAct, our rogue DOJ and end prohibition.

      With that said I just got back from DC and visiting the NORML headquarters on H street is a rewarding and informative experience in itself. Take some time to thank Keith, Justin, Erik and any student interns for their hard work. Legalizing isn’t easy. We all need to participate.

      Glad to know ya’ll picked the Hilton. I like their honors program and theyre fairly marijuana tolerant. Better than giving Trump any money and the Holiday Inn is not marijuana friendly. Try and find someone with a vaporizer for hotel consumption so you dont get desperate and shotgun a beer like me just to make a beer bong. That aluminum will take the brain cells marijuana created away. Much rather enjoy a craft beer and sneak a toke on a cheap, disposable (or giftable) one hitter. Careful to check your bags before traveling.

      If your federal Rep is a complete dickhead like mine, Lamar Smith, focus on supporting his progressive, marijuana reforming opponents in upcoming elections. Ask the candidates questions and see if they would approach NORML for a beer and talk to Justin. We can crowd-fund to get some of the worst douchebags we hate the most… like Ted Cruz… out of office by supporting their opponents;

        Julian, I was all set to get some tickets to the event, and even lobby my senators. But if I have to deal with people like you who throw around words Iike “douchebags” and “dickheads,” I have to hesitate. There are many more voters like myself who lean conservative. We don’t run around bad mouthing politicians who just might help the cause.

    2. Once CA shows Feds how much can be made, as government agency, by taxing MJ, you watch how fast they not only jump on board, but try to take over regulating at federal level, (so they can get some of the $ being made right now…).

      It’s amazing. We as older people struggled to use pot illegally in the 70’s on up through the 80’s and we were always demoralized by the people who are looking forward to their little kids using it today. I have a whole family of relative in other words cousins who thought we were the worst people in the world. Today they have lots of kids that are grown up and they are smiling and looking forward to the easy life their kids are going to have and you are helping what doesn’t in the least deserve help, because if this were Ronald Reagan’s day whom my dirt-bag relatives voted for Old Reagan would be drafting the children instead of getting them high on weed.
      I don’t like helping dirt bags.
      Especially spoiled rotten children and are they soiled.
