DFW NORML HOSTS DALLAS MARIJUANA MARCH AT DALLAS CITY HALL AND DEALEY PLAZA ON SATURDAY OCTOBER 18TH
Free to Attend – Open to the Public – Family Friendly

Oct. 16, 2014 – Dallas, Texas – The Dallas / Fort Worth chapter of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (DFW NORML) is hosting the Dallas Marijuana March on Saturday October 18th at Dallas City Hall (1500 Marilla St. Dallas, TX 75201) and Dealey Plaza. Working in conjunction with the city of Dallas Special Events Office and the Dallas Police Department, this will be an historic event for marijuana law reform in the Lone Star State where marijuana consumers and non-toking lovers of liberty alike will peacefully assemble, protest and march for a new approach to criminal marijuana prohibition.

Our last march brought nearly 3,000 attendees and we are expecting a similar turnout this Saturday in Dallas. Gates open at 1:00pm and festivities include speakers, vendor booths, food and live music. The march from City Hall to Dealey Plaza will begin around 3:30pm and participants are encouraged to arrive early to avoid traffic or parking troubles.

Speakers include Texas farmers, medical marijuana patients, attorneys, candidates for office, veterans, activists and an exceptionally brave nine year old girl named Alexis Bortell. For a complete list of speakers, sponsors and the official schedule of events, visit: www.dfwnorml.org/dallas-marijuana-march.

Merchandise will be available for purchase from DFW NORML as well as local businesses supporting the event. Food and beverages will also be available for purchase and restroom facilities will be provided as well.

Join us as we take back our hemp heritage at this peaceful protest and together we’ll continue ending cannabis prohibition one Texan at a time. Isn’t it high time YOU got involved? Do your part and contact your local TV, radio, print or web news outlet and urge them to cover the #Dallas420March.
