NORML’s annual Lobby Day activities had been attended by a really specific VIP guest- Rage Against the Machine’s guitarist Tom Morello.
The NORML Conference and Congressional Lobby Day brings National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws members from across the United States into the nation’s capital to talk about tactic, get instruction and meet with lawmakers. Activists attended much more than 170 meetings with legislators and their representatives, according to the September 16 notice ‘Report Back from DC’ issued by the national organization.
Advocates gathered in session on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday, September eight, 9 and 10. Morello arrived in the course of the Monday session and “delighted the audience with an impromptu overall performance.”
“An essential step to reforming criminal justice and restoring people’s lives is legalizing marijuana,” Morello tweeted in Could 2019, as reported by Option Nation.
The NORML Lobby Day attendees also heard from Representative Earl Blumenauer and Sen. Ron Wyden. “We are basically blown away by the passion, leadership, and information attendees and speakers brought to DC,” the report states.
2019’s Lobby Day was a record-setting occasion. “Because of NORML’s robust grassroots assistance, we had been in a position to send much more persons than ever to Capitol Hill this year. And, we will not quit till marijuana is legal across this wonderful nation,” per the September 16 notice.
