Our next Membership Meeting will be at the Tony Starlight Showroom at SE 12th and Madison from Noon to 2pm, where we held our first-ever meeting. We will have our new Portland NORML T-Shirts for sale ($20 for paid members, $25 otherwise) and we’ll have our exclusive membership pins to distribute to paid members.
Our keynote speaker for the event will be Oregon State Rep. Lew Frederick, who is campaigning to pass legislation to free prisoners of the war on marijuana whose crimes are no longer crimes and to expunge their records. You can hear our Executive Director Russ Belville interview Rep. Frederick at the Global Cannabis March and Rep. Frederick’s speech at the March below:
Our special guest for the meeting is Joy Beckerman Maher of Hemp Ace International. She will be delivering her presentation on the miracles of industrial hemp.
We are also building our Portland NORML Street Team to deliver informational fliers to people at the Portland Saturday Market, outside Timbers and Blazers games, and downtown. Street teamers can earn their paid Portland NORML membership with exclusive membership pin through volunteering.
