NORML Down with Android, Finally!

  • by Allen St. Pierre, NORML Executive Director June 23, 2012

    NORML Android Mobile AppAfter the successful launch two years ago of a NORML app on Apple’s iTunes, NORML’s large online information and social activism network to reform cannabis laws is finally linked up in the smart phone universe with Android fans.

    The new mobile app for NORML on Android, designed by former NORML legal intern Matthew Donigian, is found here.

    With nearly 400,000 Facebook supporters, 115,000 opt-in listserv subscribers, 60,000 Twitter followers and NORML-powered Apple and Android mobile apps, cannabis consumers and activists today can remain dialed in 24/7 to all of the relevant cannabis-related news and information important for us all to know and be aware of on the march to replace failed Cannabis Prohibition laws, with sensible alternatives public policies.

    For someone who has worked at NORML pre-Internet, the reality that a cannabis consumer and/or law reform activist can now possess so much verifiable, credible and timely information at the touch of a button (an entire university library’s worth of information!), remotely delivered to a hand-held device, has always helped in my mind to recognize that the writing is on the wall for Cannabis Prohibition in America because we all know that information is power—and now that citizens have more than enough access to information and networking tools, the federal government and other supporters (and beneficiaries) of the seventy-five year old Cannabis Prohibition laws can no longer in unfettered and unchallenged ways continue to mislead and deceive the public about cannabis, cannabis consumers or the ill-effects of prohibition.

    Again, information is power. Cannabis Prohibition is a worthy victim of both information and citizen action.

      When I try to download the app, all it keeps telling me is application not found. :-( HELP! Lol.

      NORML, I love you guys, but this app is dumb. It basically just mirrors the same content as the website, but with an awkward mobile interface. I’d rather just go to the website in my mobile browser. It’s not like the blog is updated every 5 minutes anyway.
