Just a few words about why we are doing this . . .

 from the head Librarian of The Old Portland (Pdx) NORML Website

Here in Oregon, we committed ourselves to changing the laws against marijuana. We defeated re-criminalization in 1998 as we looked forward to the continuing implementation of medical use here in Oregon. (see Report Deems Oregon Medical Marijuana Patient Directory Successful)

One thing is certain. Our government is no longer going to be able to pass laws, elevate penalties and build jails without opposition.

Similar to the Vietnam War in its myopic intent, The War On Some Drugs should never have been started, has no clear mission, is riddled with corruption, graft and greed, causes casualties detrimental to future generations, and, as an unfunded mandate, continually escalates without any positive results.

One very important fact completes the similarity. As more and more people came to realize that winning in Vietnam was not attainable, support for the war eroded. Today, people are realizing that winning the War On Some Drugs is also not attainable. A flood of people are coming over to the side seeking reform of our drug laws.

Not one is going the other way.

Please help in any way you can. Time, money, and expertise are all needed in numerous ways. Oregon has and will change, with our efforts and your help. Repealing the total prohibition on the responsible use of cannabis by adults will dramatically reduce prison costs, restore the environment, and allow medicine for those who need it.

It all starts with you.

Register to vote.
Support candidates and bills for positive change in marijuana laws.
Repeat the cycle and get everyone you know to do so also.

Be a part of history.

Hi folks,

We have been hosting the pdxnorml site (no charge) for a number of years, first working with Phil Smith and then Perry. The site contains over 100 megabytes of resources and news, some predating the MAP archive. The site is so old, as reform sites go, that many sites and search engines link to its homepage and directly to its subpages.

Unlike your basic web hosting service, DrugSense has an interest in seeing the pdxnorml site preserved. We also host and preserve Peter McWilliams and Jim Rosenfield's work.

FWIW, I tend to agree with [the webmasters] suggestion. The pdxnorml.org site has 
some valuable traffic, links and web site popularity as well as it's info resources.

Drug policy reformers already have a pretty big mountain to climb in competing with the likes of the multi billion dollar ONDCP without nuking sites with good and positive popularity. [in reference to a request by other activists to have this site eliminated]

"I am a Libertarian and was just doing some research on the NORML... I am not a pothead but I am pro-choice and I believe we need to make it legal inorder to get the real law breakers into jail and to help end this "war on drugs" which is wasting our tax money."

"It 's time to bring marijuana education to the American people. It is imperative that this is accomplished before another Regan drug war pushes fear into homes nation wide. The ignorance that is present today will only increase without the help of dedicated people who want the drug problem to end. Keep NORML alive and fight the powers that be. It's your country."

"Putting an end to the Drug War against the people of the United States is one of the foremost important tasks before us in this era. NORML,is to be applauded for its undying effort to put an end to the hypocricy surrounding the demonization of one of the most versatile substances and effective medications on the face of the planet."
