2016 Philadelphia Flower Show
We are thrilled to announce that PhillyNORML will be participating in the 2016 Philadelphia Flower Show! From March 4th – March 13th, we will have the opportunity to educate over 250,000 attendees about cannabis and the need for legal reform. Joining us at the “Coming Out Green” (booth 1021 in the marketplace) are: Green Rush Advisors, Women Grow, Keystone Cannabis Coalition and several other cannabis organizations, with special guests which will include Senator Mike Folmer (and others to be announced).
We intend this event to be a great success. We have a strong and smart committee dedicated to making that happen, but there are always more things that need to be done. We especially need volunteers who can work the booth itself. If you are interested in helping either with planning or staffing the event, please send an email to our staffing coordinator Reed Wurts.
This is a ground-breaking opportunity for all cannabis activists to reach and educate a huge number of influencers. We’re cooking up some prime educational pieces, we’ll be rolling out a state-wide decriminalization initiative, we’ll be converting skeptics, and educating people who have only ever known “reefer madness”. Prohibition’s time is over, and your participation could help immensely.
