Freedom Leaf, Inc: "Cannabis and Hemp Legalization Is NORML!" Join the Conference and Congressional Lobby Day on the Hill, in DC, Mon 5/23 - TUES 5/24 2016

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - May 23, 2016) - Freedom Leaf, Inc. (OTC PINK: FRLF) is the Brand Manager for NORML.org, the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws. This agreement permits Freedom Leaf to create, manage and promote commercial activities for the multimillion-dollar NORML Brand and the 45-year old organization. NORML is the oldest, largest and most well known non-profit lobbying organization for marijuana legal reform.

Whether you're a longtime activist, college student, medical marijuana patient or simply a marijuana consumer and NORML.org supporter, consider taking the next step and traveling to Washington, DC to directly lobby Congress in support of common sense marijuana law reform. You'll meet like-minded activists from across the country and get a glimpse into the Capitol Hill lawmaking process! Please participate in this historic lobbying effort in our nation's capital at this crucial time in the law reform effort as cannabis/hemp prohibition increasingly gives way to legalization!

NORML has more than 140 chapters and is headquartered in Washington, DC. NORML volunteers and advocates have been the driving force behind bills to legalize medical cannabis, hemp and recreational marijuana as well as decriminalize possession.

Monday, May 23 will include panel discussions on a variety of topics, including the prospects of marijuana law reform in the 114th Congress, the ongoing experience with legalization in Colorado, Washington, other states and post prohibition concerns for marijuana consumers. Throughout the day attendees will hear policy experts from NORML, the Drug Policy Alliance, the Marijuana Policy Project, the National Cannabis Industries Association and many others. NORML's Conference seminar takes place on Monday, May 23rd, at the GW Elliot School of International Affairs located at 1957 E Street NW in Washington, DC Register now.

Freedom Leaf, Inc. co-founder, Richard C. Cowan, has been a supporter of NORML since 1972 and served as National Director of NORML from 1992 to 1995. Mr. Cowan is also a member of the NORML board of directors and was the largest financial supporter of the organization last year, with approximately $250,000 in cash contributions.

Mr. Cowan explained, "I know from personal experience how difficult it is for an activist organization to raise funds and vet prospective business support, and now to get support from businesses in the emerging marijuana/hemp industries, all of which is essential, but the process becomes a distraction from advocacy. That is why I joined with Cliff Perry to create Freedom Leaf to support NORML and to encourage others to do the same."

The goal of the NORML/Freedom Leaf partnership is to increase brand awareness while generating revenue and donations for the non-profit. "Freedom Leaf, Inc. is proud to have been chosen to be the Brand Ambassador of NORML. Our vision is to promote and support donations, membership, build out of the NORML Legal Committee, (NLC) membership, license the NORML Brand for endorsement of products and services, produce national NORML musical festivals and educational seminars. This revenue stream is enough to make a hugely successful company all by itself when all the opportunities are tapped. This relationship will be mutually beneficial and a great asset for our shareholders," said CEO Cliff Perry.

"By helping to manage many of the NORML business aspects, Freedom Leaf can help our team focus on NORML's real goal: ending cannabis prohibition and being an advocate for the consumer in states that have legalized cannabis and hemp," said Allen St. Pierre, Executive Director of NORML.
