Work for cannabis law reform with NORML UK

By Jo Martin-Moss

As NORML UK continues the year with much to do, our intention is to keep cannabis law reform to the forefront of both the national and global political arena, as well as to inform the general public about the medical benefits of cannabis and the uselessness of prosecuting those who interact with certain prohibited drugs. We also intend to push our government to use evidence based policies in their cannabis legislation and regulation.

Our recent recruitment drive netted us over 40 new volunteers, many of whom are proving to be real assets to the team here at NORML UK. This is an updated version to let you all know that there are a few existing roles and some newly created roles available within all sectors of our organisation.  If you have time to spare and something to offer in terms of experience in any of the following roles, then share it with the team at NORML UK. All you need is commitment to end the so-called War on Drugs that benefits none except the corporations that are heavily invested in its failure.

There are a variety of non board roles available locally and nationally.

  1. Ok… So as much as I’d love to go for one of the more glamorous positions I gotta say that I’d be much more useful to you in an admin role due to previous work I’ve had… So ‘Researchers/ General Admin’ is what I’d like to apply for… How would I go about doing that???

    Cheers,
    Scally

  2. I’d like to help in anyway I can but out of these I think I would be best suited to Social Networking Information Sharer and Social Media Site Account Admin 😀

  3. Hy guys im a fellow user of medicinal cannabis eversince I was a victim of a road traffic accident 10yrs ago christmas eve… after being prescribed every painkiller, sleeper and muscle relaxant under the nhs ‘act’ it was apparent that these man made infused drugs did not agree with my internal body and mind. I had smoked cannabis when I was young but was naive to the strains, effects and the for all the good reasons. Now being a civilian going under pain and feeling uncomfortable at times I have found that certain strains can directly affect those areas near to instant relief and still allow me do do my day to day things in a more comfortable manor. Anyways I can go on and on but thats for you guys at norml to decide. I am very passionate person on this topic as I have many experiences via myself and many a peers and family. I am a regular researcher on all sub topics within this mmiraculous plant, I have been to the cannabis cup a few times and inbetween have regular trips. Anyways id like to help represent this cause in anyway.i am also a amixed media artists. @fromageblue via instagram. Check me out please. Thanks for reading this. Mrozbag fromageblue

    • Always nice to hear people’s success stories, cannabis truly is a wonderful plant.

      I’m glad the UK is waking up to this. 🙂

  4. I would like to apply for post of Gardening Advisor. To assist with Growing your own Organic Medicinal crops, outside where it should grow. Real sunshine no chemicals.

    Being able to grow in Peace and tranquility. No fear from cops or neighbours who maliciously grass you up (it happened to me)

    I am also willing to talk to anyone who wants to hear why I am prepared to help this organisation. After forty years of pain and multiple addictions to medicines that robbed me of my personality and life…..and of course none of those drugs helped in any way. It makes it worse, drug addiction and horrible pain.
    Cannabis does work.
    Criminal? Me?
    No just disabled and a keen gardener who over the last three seasons has grown enough medicinal to stop an 11 year Morphine addiction, and use cannabis as my sole pain relief.
    Respect and love to all in pain/
    Rob the Gardener
