If you are sick and tired of the Ga legislators holding patients hostage! If you want freedom to medicate with cannabis! If you are sick of watching your friends, family and fellow citizens lives be destroyed by this ridiculous prohibition! Then join us opening day of the legislative sessions and tell these politicians you have had enough and that you demand change!

Provisional Schedule:
Lobby Training 8am-9:30am (Room TBA once confirmed)
Capitol building 10am -11:30am
March until ~12:30pm
Rally Cancelled

Sorry, to say that I received notice today that our permits for the Rally Feb.1, has been revoked. The message was that the APD [ Atlanta Police Department] had contacted the Department of Public Safety and said that due to the Facebook numbers of people attending that there was a safety issue. Someone called in a tip that there would be a group of 600 in attendance, and they do not have the resources to handel such a large group.

So as we cannot have our Rally we will be extending our Lobby efforts that day so anyone that wants to come and speak with there Representatives in person, we will be there to assist you at the Gold Dome into the afternoon. Remember to dress nice [like for a job interview] and bring a picture ID so you can get into the capital.

Thanks for all of the support and we will be rescheduling the rally for another day as soon as we can set a date and make the arrangements.
