Legalization

Legalized Marijuana MarketNORML supports the adoption of a legally controlled market for marijuana, where consumers can buy marijuana for personal use from a safe legal source. This policy, generally known as legalization, exists on various levels in a handful of European countries like The Netherlands and Switzerland, and was recently adopted by voter initiative in both Washington (I-502) and Colorado (A-64), the first states to do so in the US.

We expect full legalization bills to be introduced in a number of states in 2014, and additional voter initiatives to appear on the ballot in 2014 and 2016. NORML will be working with proponents to support these proposals, and we will continue to push Congress to amend federal law to permit states to experiment with different models of marijuana legalization without interference from the federal government.
