As a nation we are moving closer to legalization of marijuana. More and more states are on board for some sort of legalization whether it is recreational or medicinal. But before any type of legalization comes into effect, the opinion of the majority must be in favor of legalization.
The National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML)aims to shift public opinion sufficiently in order to achieve full legalization of marijuana in the United States. NORML represents the interest of the millions of responsible marijuana users in the United States who believe that the recreational and medicinal use of marijuana should not be a crime. NORML lobbies congress and state legislatures for more rational and cost effective marijuana policies.
If you are affected, know somebody affected, or care about the cannabis industry. You should want to take action and assist one of the main forces making a change in the future of cannabis to catalyze the result. You should consider stopping by the NORML booth at the Cannabis World Congress Business Expo and find out how you can play a part in the future of cannabis.
