WHY ARE WE DOING THIS?
Despite the widespread use of marijuana, problems associated with it are almost non-existent, especially when compared to the other widely used drugs, alcohol and tobacco. Between them, the two legal drugs claim tens of thousands of lives every year, while no deaths have ever been properly attributed to marijuana.
For the average marijuana user, the greatest problems are caused not by marijuana use, but by the law.
The New Zealand government spends $100 million annually criminalising these otherwise law-abiding citizens on the grounds that marijuana use is dangerous, but they spend nothing on education about sensible marijuana use.
Marijuana is the most widely used illicit drug in New Zealand. 52% of all people aged 15-45 will admit to having tried it, and 16% describe themselves as current users. The Netherlands now has a cannabis use rate a fraction that of New Zealand’s, with only 4.5% of adults regular users, and as other countries abandon strict prohibition, marijuana law reform has become the international norm.
Marijuana law reform is well overdue. The facts are on our side, and our time is now. Get up, stand up for marijuana law reform!

The National Organisation for the Reform of Marijuana Laws NZ (NORML NZ) was formed in 1979. NORML is a not-for-profit organisation that campaigns for an end to marijuana prohibition. NORML supports the right of all adults to use, possess and grow their own marijuana. NORML recognises that some commercial market for marijuana will always exist, therefore we call for the establishment of a Royal Commission of Inquiry to look at how best to regulate that market.
