Nacogdoches NORML was founded in January 2015 with the sole purpose of furthering the efforts for marijuana rights in Texas. It is high time that our state representatives acknowledge the medicinal efficacy of cannabis, as well as the terrible cost we Texans have paid under current Texas and federal drug laws during the failed war on drugs. Over 70,000 Texans are arrested every year for marijuana possession, to the tune of up to 700 MILLION dollars. Every day, 22 veterans commit suicide, yet their doctors are not able to discuss marijuana as the very real therapeutic option that it is. Many Texans have been forced to uproot and move out of state, leaving families and support systems behind, just to seek medical relief from a myriad of medical ailments. It is unconscionable to think that Texans cannot expect the same level of medical care as citizens in other states. If you agree, please join your local NORML chapter, support us, get active, and help end marijuana prohibition in Texas!
