NORML Internships

The National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML) and the NORML Foundation are seeking student interns to work in the national office in Washington, DC, as well as our Richmond, VA office. Students who support our policy positions, and are looking for a real challenge, should seriously consider gaining some valuable experience working on one of America's most hotly debated public policy issues. NORML and the NORML Foundation have a small professional staff who share an office a couple of blocks from the White House. We frequently depend on the work of interns to expand our effectiveness. Depending on a student's academic pursuits or skills, NORML interns are asked to:

  • conduct policy and legal research on-line;
  • attend press conferences, policy briefings, and legislative hearings on The Hill;
  • track all federal, state, and local marijuana-related legislation
  • manage e-mail;
  • manage and archive all forms of information;
  • help maintain the NORML web site;
  • perform desktop publishing and graphics tasks;
  • help organize conferences, advocacy events, benefits, seminars and press conferences;
  • provide background information to writers, editors and producers from major media outlets;
  • perform regular office and mailing duties.

Please submit a cover letter and resume to: internships@norml.org, or mail to: NORML Foundation, 1100 H Street, NW, Suite 830, Washington, DC 20005. For more information call NORML at 202-483-5500.
