Hemp Cannabis and Marijuana Activists are fundraising a minimum of $125 to pay for the entrance/exhibitor fee for Northern Wisconsin NORML to have a booth and table at the Fall Edition of the Answers To Energy Expo in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. The expo will be held on Saturday October 20th, 2012 from 9:00am until 3:00pm at the Oshkosh Convention Center. Admission is free. For more information please visit http://answerstoenergy.webs.com/.
The Northern WI NORML chapter made a huge impact and gained several new active members from the expo's we attended early this year. The Spring Version of the Answers to Energy Expo was reported as a huge success and activists found a warm welcome among other exhibitors and participants of the energy fair.
Although our literature contains a variety of information on hemp cannabis, the group will be focusing on Industrial Hemp during the expo. The chapter plans to have hemp building supplies, hemp fuel information and answers to energy questions, as well as some feral hemp plants that still can be found growing wild along Wisconsin fields and ditches (we hope!)
Come down and say "High" to the NORML Crew, pick up some information about HR 1831 The Industrial Hemp Farming Act of 2011-12 and the companion bill in the Senate, S.3501, learn about how hemp can play a role in our energy crisis and have a picture taken with some wild Wisconsin Hemp.
But first we need your help to secure our NORML spot at the expo. To donate, please send check or money order to Northern Wisconsin NORML, PO BOX 542, Ripon, Wisconsin 54971 or use the PayPal Button below.
To volunteer to help with this event, please do not hesitate to contact us at 920-931-4207 or via email at NorthernWiNORML@gmail.com, thank you!

What: Law Enforcement Against Prohibition Presentation When: Thursday, May 17th, 2012 from 7:30pm to 9:00pm Where: Lawrence University, Wriston Auditorium, Appleton
Law Enforcement Against Prohibition Speaker James Gierach is a former Assistant State's Attorney of Cook County, municipal attorney, Village prosecutor, and general practitioner who consistently addressed drug policy and prison issues. Also note worthy is he was the youngest delegate elected to write Illinois' Constitution in 1970. That was 40+ years ago and Jim has some great stories to share from those years of experience.
Through his various experiences in the war on drugs, Mr. Gierach has come to believe that our current policy is a failed policy and would like to take the time to discuss alternatives to this issue.
James has spent more than twenty years fighting drug prohibition. He has discussed and debated drug-policy issues on television, radio and in front of hundreds of audiences, appearing alongside the former head of the DEA, presiding judges, chiefs of police, and drug advisers to the White House.
