NORML Chapter To File Suit Over Free Speech Restriction

NORML Chapter To File Suit Over Free Speech Restriction: "Thursday, 15 April 2004

Columbia, SC: The South Carolina chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) is suing organizers of the state's largest annual music festival to allow representatives from Midlands NORML to distribute promotional materials at this weekend's Three Rivers Music Festival.

Event organizers initially rejected Midlands NORML's application to host a booth at the festival because they disapproved of the group's literature - which argues for reforming marijuana prohibition. After receiving letters from the ACLU, Three Rivers Music Festival representatives agreed to grant Midlands NORML a booth at the event, but said that the group could not freely distribute their written materials to festival attendees."
