Peachtree NORML offers members many opportunities to network with the Georgia cannabis community and to help others. If you are looking for a cannabis legalization organization that is active year-round then you've found us.
The primary goal of Peachtree NORML is to provide information and education to Georgia citizens about the failure of an 80 year-old war on the cannabis plant. We do this by providing our opinion and links to information that encourage you to research the facts on your own.
Lobbying Our Leaders
A large part of Peachtree NORML's efforts involve rallying stakeholders and encouraging them to speak directly to their elected leaders and policy makers. The only way to end prohibition is to change the law, so we make sure lawmakers hear from our members.
The Peachtree NORML Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, is proud to raise funds for Georgians that have been wrongfully arrested for the crime of possessing a plant. 100% of the donations made to the Legal Defense Fund are used to pay for the legal expenses of these drug war victims.
Supporting Our Members
Peachtree NORML is VERY active in the marijuana legalization effort in Georgia, and this creates a lot of opportunities for members to meet, fellowship and network. We have multiple chapters who hold monthly meetings as an opportunity to both develop strategy as well as socialize with like-minded people.

In recent years I have discovered the medical side effects (benefits) of marijuana. My sophomore year I started eating edibles, and smoking just to try it out. I heard it was something that would help my pre-existing medically diagnosed anxiety disorder. I don't like to call it a disorder, but such is life. After combining the use of legally prescribed anti-anxiety medication and smoking around 2-3 times per week, (more...)
