FAQ

What are the laws concerning marijuana in my city or province?

On Oct 17th, 2018, Canada became the first G7 nation to legalize cannabis use on the federal level through the passing of The Cannabis Act. While cannabis use for both recreational medical is legal across the nation, provinces have their own control over retail access, and municipalities control consumption regulations.Be sure to understand the regulations for your individual province and city.

If I’ve been charged with a marijuana related offense, can NORML Canada help me out?

We are in the process of developing a legal support network across the country. In the meantime, we simply do not have the resources to accommodate each individual request. As an alternative, we recommend that, once you have secured a lawyer, you request that s/he contact NORML Canada on your behalf.

If I become a member of NORML Canada, is my personal information kept private?

Although the social stigma concerning marijuana has decreased substantially over the past few decades, NORML Canada appreciates that not everyone wants to be publicly affiliated with an anti-prohibitionist position. As such, we take the privacy of our membership information very seriously.

If I become a NORML Canada member or make a donation, am I eligible for a tax deduction?

No – since we aren’t registered as a charity organization.

How do I become a NORML Canada staff member? How do I obtain a norml-CANADA.ORG email address?

At present, norml-canada.org email addresses are reserved for directors and staff members at NORML Canada. Although we will post calls for applications to fill vacant positions from time to time, the best way to initially get involved in the organization is to become a member and/or to volunteer.
