Connecticut NORML survives on memberships and donations alone, and it’s the best way to stay up to date on all the news, events and action opportunities. Members receive our quarterly newsletter and discounts on events and merchandise.

If you can’t join, at least sign up for our email alert list and take action when needed.

Educate yourself and others

Read Connecticut NORML’s newsletter and website; also national NORML’s site and newsfeeds. Connecticut NORML has a Facebook page, make sure to check that out as well.

Attend meetings, conferences, events, and stop by the Connecticut NORML table to say high and find out what we’re working on.

Write Letters to the Editor (the most read section of any newspaper) in your local papers. A good resource for letter writing and news is Drugsense.

Get politically involved

Attend the Connecticut NORML Lobby Day and National NORML Lobby Day, where you will be trained to meet with your legislators on key bills in Connecticut.

Register to vote and make sure you vote!

Know who your elected officials are and what their stance and record are on marijuana legalization. Find your Connecticut legislators and find your Congressional house member. Meet with them about pending bills and work for their re-election if they’re helping us, or for their opponent if they’re challenging an incumbent’s bad policies and have better ones. Attend fundraising events and public meetings; be a solid citizen and a good neighbor. Read your ballot; know who is running for judgeships and local offices too.

Watchdog your local county supervisors’ and city council’s meeting agendas, and build relationships with them, or work with local groups who are doing so.
