Socials and Celebrations

While NORML’s national conference is the premier event in the nation where citizens and leaders gather to discuss strategy, share experience and build community to reform cannabis laws, a NORML conference is hardly an ‘all work and no play’ event as the conference will host a number of socials and celebrations to honor the organization, activists, celebrities and movement heroes.

To enjoy the full scope of NORML’s 37th annual conference, you and your friends should plan to arrive in Berkeley no later than 3PM on Thursday, October 16.

NORML’s Saturday Night Fundraising Party: NORML’s 2008 Extravaganza!

Because of limited capacity, do not miss this year’s Saturday Night Fundraising Party, hosted by Oakland’s Harborside Health Center (HHC).

HHC has secured a wonderful and intimate venue in Oakland named Oasis for NORML’s 2008 Extravaganza and arranged for the most exciting, exotic (at times, erotic) and wildly entertaining performers to be featured at a NORML-related fundraising party.

Featured Musical (and performance art) Acts: The Extra Action Marching Band, Los Marijuanos, Human Revolution and Jaris & Zahira!

All patrons of the event receive a complimentary poster to commemorate the night and performing acts.

Again, tickets for this exclusive event will sell out quickly, so purchase your admission ticket ASAP to this great night of fun by calling NORML @ 888-67-NORML. Funds raised at this HHC-sponsored event support of NORML’s historic and important cannabis law reform advocacy work and educational efforts.
