This holiday season, give the gift that helps end marijuana prohibition when you make a donation to NORML. Your generosity will help bring freedom to the millions of Americans living in states where NORML is still working to legalize marijuana.
Between the years 2012 and 2018, both the rates of lifetime marijuana use and rates of annual marijuana use by 8th, 10th, and 12th graders declined, despite ten states enacting laws regulating adult marijuana use during this same time period.
