Virginia NORML Lobby Day
Monday, January 20, 2014 from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM (EST)
Virginia NORML needs your help! This is a MAJOR event for us, and WE WANT YOU TO JOIN US! We'll talk to our representatives about marijuana and changing the law. We'll be lobbying for decriminalization, and to lift the driver's license suspension for a conviction.
If you want to help make marijuana legal in Virginia, it's INCREDIBLY IMPORTANT for you to join us for these first steps! Our representatives are there to LISTEN TO US!
Lobby Day is a fantastic and fun chance to see democracy in action. If you're new to lobbying, we'll have staff available to help throughout the day. You'll feel the energy as we citizens persuade our delegates to treat us fairly, and to make marijuana laws work for all Virginians.
