NORML is deeply saddened to report the untimely and tragic loss of longtime member and activist, Doug Greene. Doug served as Empire State NORML’s Legislative Director, and worked tirelessly to reform marijuana laws in the state of New York.

“Doug was a passionate advocate for ending America’s failed war on cannabis consumers, and his work with NORML and for the cause spans decades not years. This is a sad loss for his friends and family, the New York cannabis community, and the legalization movement.

Cannabis Excelsior, Doug.”

Please take action today and honor Doug’s commitment to reform by sending a message to New York lawmakers in support of A.1617 and S.1527, the Marijuana Regulation and Taxation Act (MRTA).

Read more about Doug and his activism below in a statement from Empire State NORML:

It is with tremendous sorrow to share that our beloved Douglas Greene, Legislative Director, Board Member and Lifetime Member of Empire State NORML, passed away under tragic circumstances on June 4, 2019.

Doug was a prolific longtime activist in the cannabis community, and dedicated decades of his life to many social causes. From ending the war on drugs and legalizing ibogaine to animal rights and veganism, he was a tenacious advocate always fighting for what he believed in.

A paralegal, his expertise and knowledge of law and policy extended into his activism and set him apart as one of the most respected authorities on cannabis legislation. Whether it be providing input and testimony to various legislative bodies, advising foreign dignitaries at the State Department, delivering education to communities on complex legislative issues, his opinion was highly sought after, providing unique insights and vision. His efforts will continue to touch countless souls across New York state and around the globe.

This is a tragic loss for Doug’s family. Our deepest condolences go out to them and his loved ones. We ask that you please be respectful of their privacy at this time.

While our movement has truly suffered a tragic loss, Doug left us all with a legacy of indefatigable commitment which means we cannot let this paralyze us. Through these difficult times, we must find strength in ourselves and from within our community. Doug’s signature catchphrase was “Cannabis Excelsior,” excelsior meaning “ever upward” in Latin.

Cannabis Excelsior.

Sincerely,
Empire State NORML Board of Directors
