FORT WORTH, TX – The GOP may have rolled into Fort Worth, but hundreds of people were in Cowtown debating on rolling up. Don’t worry, it’s legal. And normal; literally.

The Dallas-Fort Worth chapter of the Nation Organization of the Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML) hosted the three-day convention.
Just to clear the smoke this isn’t a weed-fest.

DFW NORML-con is a group of advocates who are out to legalize the use of medical and recreational marijuana. They’re hoping others will catch the buzz.

“This is an opportunity to meet some very influential people within this movement,” Shaun McAlister of DFW NORML said. “[This is an opportunity] to hear them speak, to get ideas that will empower and inspire your activism moving forward. And basically to give you the ammunition you need to have those tough cannabis conversations as we continue to end cannabis prohibition in the state of Texas.”

Attendees who came with high expectations, got more than what they bargained for. In addition to a panel of speakers, the group took part in a gang of ganja inspired activities like 4/20 Jeopardy, giveaways, and parties.

While things may be hazy now, NORML has high hopes of getting people and businesses, on board of the Mary-Jane train.
