Save The Date: NORML Announces 2005 National Conference In San Francisco

Washington, DC: NORML is pleased to announce that the 2005 National NORML Conference will take place March 31-April 2 at the Cathedral Hill Hotel in downtown San Francisco.

Featured speakers at this year’s event will include new NORML Executive Director Allen St. Pierre, best selling travel author, television host and NORML Advisory Board member Rick Steves, Drug Policy Alliance Executive Director Ethan Nadelmann; as well as physicians, nurses and healthcare specialists, medical cannabis patients and activists, legal experts, hemp industry leaders, High Times Magazine’s editors, cultivation experts, authors, members of NORML’s board of directors and many others.

According to NORML’s new executive director Allen St. Pierre, “This year’s conference marks NORML’s return to the Bay area, which was host to NORML’s highly successful 2002 and 2003 annual gatherings, and will offer attendees a unique opportunity to network with other marijuana law reformers.”

“This year’s reduced hotel room rate, coupled with free parking for hotel patrons in one of the most ‘cannabis-friendly’ cities in America sounds like a prescription to me for fun and education. If a person is serious about changing America’s misguided cannabis laws, the annual NORML conference is the gathering place for medical cannabis patients, cannabis consumers and concerned citizens.”

Lodging at the Cathedral Hill Hotel for conference attendees is available at a specially reduced rate by calling 1-800-622-0855 or by visiting and referring to the code ‘NORML’.

Complete conference information – including a full listing of speakers, panel discussions, and after-hour events – will be available shortly on the NORML website.
