With several Republican introducing medical bills and a Democrat introducing a recreational bill in Tennessee, it is time to make our voices heard.

On Tuesday, March, 12th we will meet on the steps of the capitol building and bring this issue to the doorsteps of our elected officials.

We will start meeting at 930 with the Rally kicking off at 10. We will go for 4 hours and then head to our scheduled meetings with our officials to talk about cannabis reform.

1. Put on your Sunday best. This Rally is on the hill in Nashville and we want them to take us seriously.
2. If you have made an appointment with your representative be there early.
3. Leave your cannabis at home.
4. If you need to smoke a cigarette, please be courteous and step away from the crowd.
5. Do Not Block Traffic. Do Not Block Doorways!
6. We will be out there from 10 am to at least 2 pm. There are two entrances to the building. We need to be at both. One entrance is on 5th Ave N. One is on 6th Ave N. It is across the street from Nashville Municipal Auditorium. (Organizers will be there at 9:30)
7. We will be there rain or shine, so stay tuned for a weather update.
8. Metered parking is free if you have a handicapped placard or tag. There are lots of garages nearby.
9. If you are going in the building, you have to have a valid ID and you will have to go through a metal detector.

We are going to The Hill in Nashville to show our support for the upcoming cannabis bills.
