During July 19th Pot Book Giveaway, Northern Wisconsin NORML also threw down a whole bunch of other marijuana support gear during our meeting at the Appleton Public Library.  Congratulations to our winners of The Pot Book: A Complete Guide to Cannabis, Satan’s Smoke (now known as The Case Of U.S. v. Yerbas) and Treating Yourself Magazines.  The response was outstanding and we collected tons signatures in support of HR 1831 (Industrial Hemp), HR 1983 (Medical Marijuana Patients Rights) and HR 2306 (Ending Federal Marijuana Prohibition).

We also threw done something else, a challenge that Appleton area activists accepted. Among the support gear available, we have a wide variety of T-Shirts that activists appreciate…..and someone is going to win one! The activist which brings back the most completed and signed signature forms for HR 2306 – The Ending Federal Marijuana Prohibition Act back to our next meeting on August 17th at the Harmony Cafe in downtown Appleton takes their pick of out of our “Green Line” of T-shirts. And as attendees of the last NORML meeting in Appleton know, we are generous to those who show and plan to include another give away of a variety of our merchandise stash. Wait…there is more…we will be giving away another copy of The Pot Book to someone just for showing up….so we hope to see you there!
