NORML is the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws. Created by R. Keith Stroup in 1970 with a $5,000 grant from the Playboy Foundation. The organization has a large grassroots network with 135 chapters and over 550 lawyers. NORML holds annual conferences and Continuing Legal Education (CLE)-accredited seminars.
