Planting a Seed for Freedom; Let our People Grow
September 16 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
Join Lehigh Valley NORML, Pittsburgh NORML, and Pennsylvania Cannabis Festival for a protest and rally, demanding growing rights for Medical Cannabis patients and caregivers, and ALL adult Pennsylvanians 21 and over .. We’ll be gathering outside the Capitol Rotunda on the Third Street steps, practicing proper social-distancing. Participants are required to wear masks. Our political allies will join us with words of encouragement, as we push for homegrows for legal Medical Marijuana patients in PA. This protest is also a demand for full legalization of cannabis statewide, along with the RIGHT to grow.
The culmination of our event will be a symbolic “planting of the seed”, as each participant will be provided a starter grow-pot, along with hemp seeds. Around high-noon we’ll “Drop the Seed”!
Participants are encouraged to bring handmade signs: asking for patient rights, legalization, and homegrow for everybody in Pennsylvania. We may picket the Department of Health after our demonstration on the Capitol stairs. TBD.
*In addition to practicing proper social-distancing, and requiring attendees to wear masks, state regulations require us to limit attendance to 250. Should our numbers exceed that, officials and event organizers will have to direct you to disperse along sidewalks or consider calling your legislators in lieu of your attendance. Thanks for understanding, as our goal is to keep EVERYBODY safe.
