Welcome to the new NORML

One of the oldest chapters in the country, LA NORML was founded in 1973 and is a regional chapter of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML). We support NORML’s mission to repeal the prohibition of marijuana at the local, state and federal level by educating those in our community about marijuana and hemp and their potential medical and industrial use while promoting the responsible use of marijuana by adults.

Los Angeles NORML

is a non-profit, membership organization dedicated to reforming California’s marijuana laws. We are the only state organization devoted specifically to marijuana reform for consumers.

LA NORML Legislative Goals

  • Implement Prop. 215‘s goal of a system of “safe and affordable distribution” of medical marijuana.
  • Stop unwarranted use of urine testing for marijuana on the job and for pain patients
  • Reduce taxes on patients and small farmers and prohibit local taxes and restrictions on donations of medical marijuana
  • Encourage licensing of small businesses, nonprofits, and agricultural co-ops so as to discourage monopolization and ownership concentration by large-scale, big-money interests
  • Protect the confidentiality of license applications in order to protect privacy and public safety
  • Remove cannabis from the state list of controlled substances, and
  • Decriminalize possession of more than one ounce.
