PRESS RELEASE from Legalize Louisiana
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Legalize Louisiana Rallies Statewide for Cannabis Reform
New Orleans – October 11, 2012 – Citizens across the state will gather for cannabis policy reform Thursday, October 25, starting at 3PM. Legalize Louisiana is an unincorporated grassroots education and lobbying effort dedicating to ending the peculiar institution of cannabis prohibition in Louisiana. In New Orleans, those who recognize our inalienable rights to bona-fide medical, religious, industrial, and recreational cannabis use will convene at Lafayette Square.
Similar actions are also scheduled for Lafayette, Lake Charles, and Alexandria. Residents of Baton Rouge are encouraged to visit their employees in the Capitol on this official business. Statewide, the group will also circulate a petition to be sent to the Louisiana legislature, which will include scientific, legal, and other findings and will call immediately for the necessary revisions to Louisiana code. The petition will also demand manifestation of rules and licensing requirements from the Louisiana Boards of Health and Pharmacy, respectively, regarding access to medical marijuana for Louisiana patients, a statutory requirement under LA RS:40.
Organizers are asking all university students and their professors to take full advantage of this critical, teachable moment-in-time. They are also calling all area professionals to best practices, only. The groups statewide will hold their assemblies for several hours and are asking every community to join in the creation of health and justice for all Louisianians.

"We scheduled the October 25, 3PM rally when we did, so as to EMPTY THE UNIVERSITIES for this supremely teachable, pre-election occasion. There is NO EXCUSE for sitting idly by in a classroom while the real work of health and justice calls. If you live near a university, tech school, law school, med school, ETC: Help us deliver the very best ideas from those hallway prisons, into the daily practice of those community members who can best benefit from and utilize them." ~ Legalize Louisiana
