The "Journey for Justice, Texas Style" is set to begin today in Houston (Friday, 9/22) traveling for a week through the Lone Star State to conclude at the Governor's Mansion in Austin on the afternoon of September 29.

Based on previous Journeys for Justice in Florida, Wisconsin, and Ohio, the Texas event came together at the thirteenth annual Drug Policy Foundation conference in Washington in May.  There, the Drug Policy Foundation of Texas teamed up with the Cannabis Action Network and the November Coalition to plan the march.  The journey has two primary purposes: to call attention to the huge number of non-violent drug offenders imprisoned in Texas and to emphasize the continuing need to make medical marijuana available to those who need it.

The journey will make several stops on the 180-mile route between Houston and Austin, including prison vigils and a memorial for victims of prohibition in Hempstead.  Visit http://www.journeyforjustice.org for further information.
