Texas Cannabis Patient Lobby Day 2017
Posted on: March 8, 2017
With our lawmakers meeting for only 140 days every two years, we have a lot of work to do in a short period of time. Your participation is critical to changing laws relating to marijuana in Texas.
Patient Lobby Day is a participatory event where patients and their loved ones will engage our legislators and their staff. We will focus on our medical marijuana bill, which will bring safe and legal access to seriously ill patients.
DATE: Wednesday, March 15th
TIME: 10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.
LOCATION: The Texas State Capitol Building in the Capitol Agricultural Museum and Conference Room (found on the 1st Floor in the West Hallway)
REGISTRATION INSTRUCTIONS – Please register at both of the links below.
