Madison NORML’s September 14th meeting will have special guests Rep. Barnes, sponsor of the decrim bill AB246, and Rep. Considine, sponsor of the hemp bill AB215.

 

Lobby Day will be on September 15 at the Wisconsin State Capitol. Please contact your legislators to schedule a short meeting with them on September 15th. This will be specifically for lobbying for AB246 and AB215 (not legal, medical, etc as it confuses the issue at hand according to legislative staff)

 

Have three key points about the bill(s) and be prepared to make your points within the first couple of minutes.  Even in the best case scenario, the legislator will only be paying attention for a few minutes.

 

September 14 at the meeting, we will be in the large room upstairs at the Wil-Mar (953 Jenifer St Madison) in anticipation of a larger than usual attendance.

WHAT:     Meeting, Sign Making and Pizza

WHEN:      Monday September 21st, 2015 from 4:20pm until 6:20pm

WHERE:    Rail House Restaurant & Brewpub, 2029 Old Peshtigo Rd, Marinette, WI 54143

Northern WI NORML will hold a public meeting on the 3rd Monday of each month from 4:20pm CST until 6:20pm CST at the Railhouse Restaurant, located at 2029 Old Peshtigo Rd, Marinette, WI 54143.

The chapter directors will be on hand to help process any memberships from local supporters, release event announcements, speak about current legislation efforts in Wisconsin and answer questions from attendees.

The chapter plans to have blank signage on hand and will be preparing signs for the booth and march during Great Midwest Marijuana Harvest Festival held the first weekend in October down in Madison.
