Marijuana consumers, activists, patients and business owners attended NORML’s 2017 Conference at the Capitol Hilton in Washington, DC and Congressional Lobby Day at the United States Capitol on September 10th-12th. A day-long training and informational conference was held on Monday and activists re-convened on The Hill Tuesday to personally lobby their elected members of the House of Representatives and Senate. Congressman Tom Garrett (R-VA) and Congressman Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA) addressed attendees at the two-day event.
We lobbied for expanded protections for those states that have reformed their laws, and to protect the progress that we have made from Attorney General Jeff Sessions and his rogue Justice Department. Time and time again, AG Sessions has made it clear that he thinks those of us who consume cannabis are “not good people.” We took our message to the halls of Congress to set the record straight.
