Help Wisconsin Activists get one last rally in before the summer ends!
Come help promote the need to reform the hemp cannabis laws in Wisconsin and the United States of America.
Industrial Hemp, Medicalization, Decriminalization, Legalization - it does not matter why you support reform, what matters is to get out there and let people know, let people know we need their help.
Although Wisconsin State Legislation regarding marijuana reform is not active atm, we need you to contact your State Senator and State Assembly Representative and help them understand the importance of sponsoring or co-sponsoring future legislation to reform the marijuana laws.
If you do not know who represents you at the State level, then visit http://www.WisCan.org/who to find out who. Remember to set up a profile and join the Wisconsin Cannabis Activist Network (http://www.WisCan.org/)
Federally speaking, we need you to contact your Congressional Representative and US Senators regarding House Bill 1983, the States’ Medical Marijuana Patient Protection Act and House Bill and HR 2306 Ending Federal Marijuana Prohibition Act of 2011.
Along with support for HR 1831 The Industrial Hemp Farming Act of 2011 and the companion bill in the Senate S.3501, constant public awareness of these bills needs and consistent contact from constituents on the issue of marijuana reform are needed today!
Activists from around the state plan to gather to promote these bills and create awareness for the need to reform the marijuana laws. Participants will meet at the corner of Wisconsin St and High Ave in Oshkosh. This location is near a busy intersection and the UW-Oshkosh campus. The first wave of activists are expected to be there at HIGH NOON, being joined by the second wave at about 2:00pm. The groups plan to be on the streets around the are until approximately 4:20! Bring Your Own! Signs that is, but usually someone brings extra markers and whiteboards!
The local chapter of NORML, Northern Wisconsin NORML will be there and are sponsoring the "Best Sign Contest" and will have a T-shirt/support gear package for the winning sign maker. A photographer will be there to snap a picture of your rally sign and a winner will be chosen at Thursday September 13th meeting in Appleton.
