The Ohio NORML chapter of the (National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws) was established in 2001 as a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting a better understanding of the current status of drug laws in Ohio and the United States, as well as civil libertarian arguments for a more reasonable treatment of marijuana in the laws. 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 MedicalRecreational 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 a state chapter, 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.  A listing of NORML chapters can be found here.

Membership is completed through our individual regional chapters. If you do not have a chapter near you, please consider joining the nearest available chapter or contact us and start your own!
