NORML: National Organization that Reforms Marijuana Laws
National NORML Mission Statement
National NORML was founded in 1970 by Keith Stroup and continues its work to advocate for cannabis consumers at the federal level. NORML has dozens of state and local chapters across the country that work on the local level to advocate for sensible cannabis policy.
Orange County NORML Mission
OC NORML works hand-in-hand with our state chapter CA NORML and focuses on the Southern California region and Orange County specifically.
Our mission is to be a resource center for those curious, consuming, medicating, or building in the cannabis space. Established in 2003 our goal remains to be the all-inclusive bridge to the cannabis community. A volunteer-led nonprofit that believes in cannabis legalization through policy change, education, and connection.
CALIFORNIA NORML Statement
Founded in 1972, California NORML is a non-profit, membership-supported organization dedicated to protecting and expanding cannabis consumers’ rights. As the state chapter of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws, we are the only state organization devoted specifically to marijuana reform for consumers. We publish a newsletter, lobby lawmakers, sponsor events, offer legal, educational, and consumer health advice, and sponsor scientific research.
Community Driven Non-Profit
Since its founding, OC NORML has held consistent public meetings where advocates and supporters can learn about the current status of cannabis laws, discuss news and events, hear from special guest speakers, and network with other like-minded individuals. OC NORML organizes its own special events, participates in the cannabis industry, and community events. Our board of Directors speak regularly at community events, seminars and attends local city council meetings.
