      The NorCal Local Group of the FSP manned a table for all three days
      of NORML's (National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws
      http://www.norml.org ) annual conference, held this year in beautiful
      but pricy San Francisco 3/31 - 4/2. Overall, the response we got
      from attendees was very positive. A lot of people had never heard of
      us before and seemed to think it was an interesting idea. People
      really seemed more open to the concept than people I've spoken to at
      both Libertarian Party events and a gun show (three cheers for the
      mind-altering effects of cannabis!). A lot of people took
      literature, and the new FSP matchbooks were extremely popular; we
      went through boxes of those. A couple of Porcupines said hello
      during the course of the convention. One guy thought I was Amanda
      from last year's convention (and no, we look nothing alike!). All in
      all, it was a very positive experience, and I'm sure a lot of new
      people were (and will be, through word of mouth) introduced to the
      FSP.

      Pop quiz: What do you get when a group of capitalists buys a table at
      a fairly socialistic event?
      Answer: The opportunity to rake in the cash by being the only ones
      clever enough to sell baked goods to a bunch of people with a bad
      case of the munchies... The convention had no food for sale at all.
      We went through 3 dozen chocolate chip cookies and a batch of Rice
      Krispie treats, and made around $25 for our local group.

      Thanks to a great team of volunteers: Saroj, Morey, Michael, Bodie,
      and Chris. You guys are awesome!
