Maryland NORML calls on all who support legalizing responsible adult cannabis use in Maryland to register for the most impactful event of the 2019 legislative session!

The purpose of this lobby day event is to demonstrate that the citizens of Maryland are ready for the General Assembly to hold a vote on Cannabis legalization during the 2019 General Assembly Legislative Session; we want to touch base with as many members of the Maryland General Assembly as we can.

We request that you provide your voter address when you register, allowing us to match you with a scheduled meeting time with your General Assembly representatives in the Maryland State Senate and House of Delegates. We request that all registrants allow us to schedule appointments with their respective General Assembly representatives rather than contacting legislators directly. This will help us match registrants with previously scheduled meeting times and avoid legislators continuing to receive phone calls after meetings have been scheduled.

Once you register, you will receive a registration confirmation email with additional information, including your legislator meeting times.

Prior to meeting with your elected officials and/or their staffs, we will provide you with an information package prepared specifically for you. This information package will contain your scheduled appointment times/locations, suggested talking points for your specific representative(s), copies of legislation we are promoting, and other important materials.


07:30 AM – 08:00 AM: Register, name tags, pick up your information package, meet and greet, assemble

08:00 AM – 08:30 AM: Guest Speaker and game plan for meetings with elected officials and/or their staffs; review content of participant information packets; answer questions
