Welcome to Maryland NORML!

The Maryland state chapter of the National Organization for Reform of Marijuana Laws educates the public and grows the movement toward marijuana legalization in Maryland.

We provide education and resources to empower the citizens of Maryland to work with the General Assembly to ensure proper cannabis legalization for adults.

We expect several cannabis bills to be introduced in the 2016 legislative session, including a bill to fully legalize cannabis. The state is scheduled to begin implementing the medical cannabis program in late 2016. The Maryland Medical Cannabis Commission will license 15 growers and over 100 dispensaries (two per senatorial district) for the state.

During the 2015 legislative session the General Assembly passed a paraphernalia decriminalization bill which was vetoed by Governor Hogan. Citizen activists can contact their legislators to overturn the veto by filling out this form.

Maryland NORML is a member of the Marijuana Policy Coalition of Maryland.
