Pittsburgh NORML Upcoming Meetings

Join Pittsburgh NORML and The Pittsburgh NORML Women’s Alliance on October 6th for our monthly meeting!

With special guest speaker: John Craig Hammond!

John “Craig” Hammond reached out to Pittsburgh NORML seeking the support of cannabis consumers both in his District and throughout the region. Craig supports full legalization and will be another strong voice advocating the rights of cannabis consumers in Harrisburg. He is running against Mike Turzai!

We are a 501(c)(3) so we cannot “endorse” Craig, but as with John Hanger and John Fetterman we will not hesitate to support PA candidates who support cannabis reform.

We need to start building momentum for statewide decriminalization. The GOP is going to consider it, but we need to make the case for no mandatory fines.

Find out how YOU can help!

(Free Freedom Leaf Magazine to those that attend while supplies last!)


Monthly meeting dates scheduled at Black Forge through January, 2017.

7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

10.6.2016 speaker John Craig Hammond
