Welcome to Maryland NORML!

The Maryland state chapter of the National Organization for Reform of Marijuana Laws, strives to educate the public and grow the movement toward marijuana legalization in Maryland. We also seek to help build, support and organize NORML chapters throughout the state in order to effectively communicate with one another to work toward our common goal.

We wish to provide education and resources to empower the citizens of Maryland to work with the Maryland General Assembly to ensure proper decriminalization and medical marijuana laws get passed.

2015 is already shaping up to be a big year for marijuana in Maryland.  Seventeen bills regarding marijuana have been introduced.  During the last recent legislative session the General Assembly passed both a decriminalization bill as well as furthered the reach of an existing medical marijuana bill. Over the last year Maryland NORML has joined forces with organizations across our state & country as a member of the historic Marijuana Policy Coalition of Maryland.

Looking forward we have more obstacles to overcome before we can join the ranks of Colorado and Washington state in the land of legalization. But Maryland NORML with the help ordinary citizens like yourself look forward to working hard to bring forth that change.

This legislative session, be assured Maryland NORML is there to move this issue forward and make legal medical for all, and recreational use of cannabis by responsible adults.
