Medical Cannabis

Marijuana prohibition applies to everyone, including the sick and dying. Of all the negative consequences of prohibition, none is as tragic as the denial of medical marijuana to seriously ill patients who could benefit greatly from its use. This is why Michigan NORML took on the task of changing this law back in 2003. We decided then to work on local initiatives until we attracted enough attention to go for another state drive. The plan worked. Prior to 2008, Michigan NORML assisted in decriminalizing medical marijuana in five cities.

We are the State of Michigan Chapter of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws.  Our purpose is:

MINORML’s 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, including asset forfeiture, and to allow industrial hemp to be produced and marketed by Michigan farmers.

Please join us for our fall meeting on Saturday, November 8, 2014, at the Riverwood Resort in Mt. Pleasant, MI. The meeting runs from 2:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.

Marijuana smokers are no different from their nonsmoking peers, except for their marijuana use...
