Thank you for your interest in marijuana law reform.
Criminal marijuana prohibition is a failure. Over 20 million Americans have been arrested for marijuana offenses since 1965. NORML believes that the time has come to amend criminal prohibition and replace it with a system of legalization, taxation, regulation, and education.
NORML supports the right of adults to use marijuana responsibly, whether for medical or personalpurposes. All penalties, both civil and criminal, should be eliminated for responsible use. Further, to eliminate the crime, corruption and violence associated with any "black market," a legally regulated market should be established where consumers could buy marijuana in a safe and secure environment.
NORML also supports the legalization of hemp (non-psychoactive marijuana) for industrial use.
