What Does Cannabis Have To Do With COVID-19?

Happy Memorial Day! From our NC NORML family to yours, we hope you have a safe and refreshing holiday weekend.

Support legalization of cannabis in NC!

So now that you’ve had a quick cannabis session and are feeling all fired up, why not take a few minutes to make a difference? We’ve put together a very simple petition to show our legislators that the people of North Carolina support cannabis legalization. 

I support legalization of cannabis in NC that is accessible to regular entrepreneurs; not just wealthy corporations. I support the right of people to grow at home just as people have the right to "home brew" beer. NC must establish an affordable, regulated marketplace that provides adults and patients with access to accurately labeled, high quality cannabis products.”

If you agree, take action today by adding your name to our petition here:
