Ending Marijuana Prohibition

Support The NORML Nation Membership Drive

norml nation fundraiserBy Kevin Mahmalji, NORML Outreach Coordinator

One of the most valuable resources that NORML possesses is our members. They are our lifeblood and the driving force behind the multitude of statewide and local reform efforts taking place around the country. That’s why NORML is pushing to build our ranks in advance of the 2016 election by launching the weeklong NORML Nation Membership Drive. As many of you know, presidential elections tend to attract a larger pool of younger and more politically progressive voters. We hope to tap into this expected voting block to achieve unprecedented successes in 2016.

2016 will be a watershed year for ending marijuana prohibition at the local, state and federal level. NORML and NORML chapters are engaging in multistate strategy to assist with marijuana-related ballot initiatives and legislative reform efforts, and we and the NORML PAC are pushing for federal reform by lobbying members of Congress in support of The CARERS Act, The Marijuana Businesses Access to Banking Act, and The Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol Act, as well as additional budgetary amendments and regulatory reforms.

Funds that we raise through this membership drive will help us cover costs related to our ongoing lobbying efforts and expand our network of NORML Chapters. Also, a portion of the proceeds will be used to establish our Chapter Grant program which will dedicated to directly supporting NORML-led local reform efforts.

If you’re already NORML Chapter Leader of Member, you can earn money for your local NORML Chapter through the NORML Nation Chapter Contest! The top three chapters with the most referrals to the NORML Nation will earn $1,000, $500, and $250! I’ll be sending around an email to Chapter Leaders with more information about the NORML Nation Chapter Contest.

Thank you in advance for helping us make this a successful membership drive. You can help us reach our goal by encouraging others to become members of NORML and to donate to our work. You can also join the NORML Nation Membership Drive Facebook event, and invite your friends!

You can read more about NORML’s ongoing legislative efforts by visiting our ‘Take Action Center’ here, and/or the NORML PAC here.

    Can’t support NORML. As a long-time reformer, I have only seen NORML take and never give back to communities in need… perpetuators of the “decrim” movemet only to keep their lawyers in work.

    We need outright LEGALIZATOIN, for the masses, for the people,

  • Lynn-no-duh

    NORML is some of the most opposition we have to real legalization of this miraculous plant; the “reforms” they seek protect corporate profiteers and strictly limit/control the people’s access to this non-toxic plant. The regulations and restrictions NORML proposes as “reform” will keep the Bar Association, prison industrial complex, and a handful of corporate elite, exceedingly wealthy and happy, while the rest of us pay and pay and pay.

    As annonamice suggested, NORML seems to have enormous focus on fund-raising. Be careful who you donate to; they will use these funds to fight ACTUAL legalization of this plant, pushing for strict regulations & high sin taxes on it.
