Remove the Classification 1 from Cannabis/Marijuana

We acknowledge that Cannabis/Marijuana was criminalized falsely. There are well over 100 scientific studies showing definitive benefits of medical marijuana pertaining to pain management, sleep management, anger management, anxiety disorders, seizures, cancer, and other ailments. It is time to remove the Schedule 1 classification and decriminalize this natural herb.

Why is this important?

It is the right thing to do, it is necessary to do; we must end the destroying of hundreds of thousands of young lives by criminalizing them for a harmless natural substance wrongly criminalized to enhance profits over people.

Reasons for signing

  • End prohibition
  • Medical marijuana with FDA-approval won't happen for a while but people ought to be able to self-medicate with marijuana and use it recreationally just like alcohol and tobacco. The American people know there is a double standard governing recreational drugs/substance legislation.
  • Marijuana should be 100% legal and classified in the same way alcohol is. There should be no illegality for possession. Time for reality check and remove marijuana from the Classification 1 list.
