Northern Wisconsin NORML and Southeastern Wisconsin NORML teamed up at the Wi Cannabis Expo in Milwaukee to represent Wisconsin NORML at our ‘joint booth’. Opening video catches the team in action! In addition to the booth, Northern Wisconsin NORML Executive Director Kris Teegardin was a featured panel speaker at the event. Thank you to board members from both chapters and additional volunteers that showed up and worked hard all day long. It was an extremely busy and exhausting signature collecting frenzy for sure! The next volunteer day for data entry and processing these signature forms is February 23rd in Milwaukee hosted by SE WI NORML.
Here is the news report from TMJ4:
The first Wisconsin Cannabis Expo took over the Wisconsin Center on Saturday in downtown Milwaukee.
Dozens of exhibits and speakers showcased hemp and CBD products. People also spoke about the future of marijuana in Wisconsin.
Some have high hopes it will be legalized soon.
“It will happen, but right now despite the fact that 80% want medical, you have the legislature unwilling to even take the bills up,” organizer Louis Fortis said.
The organizer says around 3,000 people showed up for the event.
Please join us February 13th, 2020 in La Crosse for a NORML activist meet up, food, fellowship and networking event at 6pm, followed by a concert starting at 8pm
