Our Mission

The Ohio NORML 
chapter of the (National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws) mission is to move public opinion sufficiently to achieve the repeal of marijuana prohibition so that the responsible use of cannabis by adults is no longer subject to penalty. It is the opinion of this organization that the decision concerning the use of marijuana is an individual one and should not be dictated by law. 

We encourage all of you that believe that marijuana should be legalized for Medical, Recreational and Industrial use to get involved by donating to the cause and  becoming a member  of Ohio NORML. With your membership you will receive ongoing information on the benefits of Marijuana, updates on the progress being made to legalize marijuana and the opportunity to participate in rallies and fundraisers. You will also learn how to contact your representatives and how to get legal assistance if necessary.

Ohio NORML is the state chapter and part of our mission is to promote regional chapters of National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws. We offer guidelines, support, information and exposure while insuring that they comply with NORML’s rules and regulations.  NORML chapters are located in Akron-Kent, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Columbus, Dayton, Toledo, Youngstown, Athens/Nelsonville.

Membership is only $35 yearly for an individual. Here are some of the benefits you will enjoy as a member of the Ohio Norml chapter:  

  • Quarterly newsletter to keep you up to date on current events such as rallies, fundraisers, festivals, news information, announcements and activist tips.
  • T-Shirt and membership card.
  • Direct Involvement with the mechanism of change.
