The National Organisation for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML) says it has not broken the law by endorsing adults-only cannabis clubs like the Daktory.

Despite claims made by Fairfax Media (Steve Hopkins – March 22), NORML did not control or operate the Daktory at any point. NORML and the Daktory are two seperate organisations.

Although NORML endorses civil disobedience as a means of protest, the national organisation has not acted unlawfully, its president Julian Crawford said.

“I will relentlessly fight my charges until my name is cleared,” he said.

“It is not against the law for NORML to endosre the concept of adults-only cannabis clubs.”

Mr Crawford said that while NORML and the Daktory had a good working relationship they remained distinct organisations with different approaches to cannabis law reform.
