Mission Statement

Joplin NORML’s mission is to move public opinion sufficiently to achieve the repeal of marijuana prohibition so that the responsible use of cannabis by adults is no longer subject to penalty. Another chapter-wide goal is to pass a local initiative to decriminalize marijuana in Joplin, MO so marijuana smokers are subject to a fine only for possession of a “personal amount” of marijuana (35gr or less), much like a traffic ticket.
