About J Day and NORML:

We are NORML. It’s time to stop arresting responsible cannabis consumers. Responsible cannabis use causes no harm to society and should be of no interest to the government. At least 400,000 Kiwis choose to use cannabis; few abuse it.

NORML supports the removal of all penalties for the private possession of marijuana by adults, cultivation for personal use, and the casual non-profit transfers of small amounts. NORML also supports the development of a legally controlled market for marijuana. Our preferred model is for tightly-regulated non-profit Cannabis Social Clubs serving their local communities.

NORML’s “Principles of Responsible Cannabis Use” defines acceptable conduct. We show courtesy, integrity, perseverance and self control toward all.

Before you come to J Day, learn your rights at including this Statement to Police:

“Officer, if I am under arrest or being detained, please tell me so.
If I am free to go, please tell me so. If I am not free to go, please tell me why.
I wish to exercise all my legal rights including my right to silence and my right to speak to a lawyer before I say anything to you.
I do not consent to be searched. I wish to be released without delay.
Please do not ask me questions, because I will not willingly talk to you until I speak to a lawyer.
Thank you for respecting my rights.”
