Spanish Town Grows Marijuana, Raises Revenue, Medical Marijuana Promoters Sentenced To 20 Years In Jail, 100 Studies Prove Marijuana Is Cancer Medicine, 60 Studies Confirm Medical Marijuana Works, (Rick Simpson) CBD Oil Legal In UK

WHY IS A SAFE, FREE, NON TOXIC WEED WITH 65 HISTORICAL MEDICAL USES ILLEGAL, BUT TOXIC, EXPENSIVE, PATENT DRUGS ARE LEGAL, AND KILL HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE EACH YEAR? 



Why is a lowly weed that grows wild all over the world, which has been used for over 65 diseases as a valuable medicinal herb for thousands of years, 'illegal'? This plant has killed no one, when compared side to side with these high cost, high profit, toxic synthetic cousins that directly kill tens of thousands of people each year, just in the US alone. Why are the expensive, harmful, toxic, chemical patented poisons 'legal', but the natural, safe solution, which has been proven to effectively fight both pain and cancer without harm, (by many studies), is illegal? Why is the US calling CBD oil extracted from marijuana illegal, but in the UK it is a legal medicine?



WHO IS FIGHTING THE LEGALIZATION OF MARIJUANA? 

There are many entrenched HIGH PROFIT industries who are fighting the legalization of marijuana, because their PROFIT, livelihoods and power are directly impacted if it is legalized. 



UK CLASSIFIES CBD OIL AS A MEDICINE, JUST AS AMERICA PUTS CBD IN THE SAME CLASS AS ILLEGAL HEROIN

UK Reclassifies CBD Oil As Medicine Just As America Puts It In Class With Heroin | Openhearted Rebel by A Green Road Daily News
After the DEA moved to further constrain, Americans’ access to medically miraculous CBD oil by classifying it alongside heroin and cocaine, Britain chose compassion and common sense — and just classified Cannabidiol (CBD) as a medicine.On Monday, Britain’s Medicines & Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) decided CBD — which can treat illnesses and conditions from severe childhood epilepsy to autism to cancer — warranted the classification as a medicine based on credible evidence of its efficacy.

60 PERCENT OF PUBLIC IS IN FAVOR OF LEGALIZING MARIJUANA COMPLETELY

Public support for the legalization of recreational marijuana in the U.S. is at a historic high—so to speak—of 60 percent, according to a new Gallup poll released Wednesday. The results come just as a growing number of states vote to legalize recreational marijuana, with another five states casting ballots on the issue this November. Local surveys indicate the efforts are likely to pass in Arizona, California, Maine, and Massachusetts. Nevada, the final state considering legalization, seems more conflicted. (Voters will also decide on medical marijuana questions in Arkansas, Florida, Montana, and North Dakota.)

Yea, that leaf sure looks dangerous, so dangerous in fact, that it threatens the OBSCENE profits of Big Pharma and the medical industrial complex. They benefit from the profits that the collect from a suffering humanity via patented but dangerous, expensive, addicting, (while also causing tens of thousands of deaths each year) pain killing and cancer fighting chemical, in the form of patented pills. Those pills usually only cost pennies to make per bottle, but they charge hundreds to thousands of dollars per bottle.

There are HUGE profits pocketed by the 1 percent, but it means that this natural, harmless, humble, medicinal plant has to be kept illegal. Why? because MJ works much better, causing no deaths, and has no addictive potential, compared to the toxic chemical cousins. In a side by side comparison, the natural herb called marijuana would win every time, so we cannot ever allow that, right? The only way to keep this natural, free solution off the market and competing with these toxic, expensive pain drugs is to ban it completely, for all time.

There are many fingers collecting dark money off of this illegal herb. Could that be the real reason why the FAILED Prohibition era war against this harmless weed has persisted for so long?

NBC: Legalized: A Year In The Life Of Colorado's Legal Weed Experiment

THE PREDATORY VULTURE CAPITALIST SYSTEM SUPPORTS AND KEEPS IN PLACE A FAILED WAR ON DRUGS


Let's take a look at the long list of vultures that are feasting on the suffering and deaths of so many people...

1. The prison industrial complex is making BILLIONS off of this illegal natural herb, from those thrown into prison for it and other illegal drugs, often for 20 to 40 years. Most people in prison are there due to drug related, victimless crimes. Are drug addicts criminals? Do they deserve jail or would treatment for an addiction work better?

2. The medical industrial complex makes BILLIONS off of this illegal natural herb, by keeping it illegal. Pain relieving drugs are VERY PROFITABLE, so by keeping marijuana illegal, they get to keep their monopoly control over pain relieving chemicals that harm, cause addictions, and negative side effects, plus many deaths every year.

https://www.agreenroadjournal.com/2012/03/medical-fraud-how-big-is-it.html

3. The police, DEA, and associated entities make BILLIONS off of keeping this  natural herb illegal. They love having laws in place that allow them to seize large amounts of cash from innocent civilians, with no due process, and no legal charges via an Unconstitutional taking. When the money is easy and you can buy great military style toys with free money, why stop?

https://www.agreenroadjournal.com/2015/07/civil-forfeiture-law-is.html

4. The politicians get a ton of money into their election campaigns from the monopolistic drug companies by promising to keep this harmless weed illegal and to toss anyone in jail who partakes of it, sells it, or grows it. Politicians are promising to be 'law and order' candidates, while hyping up the fear around this evil herb, evil criminal drug dealers, and more.. They keep getting elected by fear mongering. As a result, anyone smoking pot, and drug addicts keep getting tossed into jail, which makes the prison industrial complex fat and happy, on the taxpayer dime of course.

https://www.agreenroadjournal.com/2012/06/bill-moyers-how-to-own-elections.html

5. Of course, anyone working in the government 'justice' system also has to be paid to prosecute and process all of these pot smoking criminals, and all of those paychecks are also paid by taxpayers. We all know that if you are rich, you do not end up in jail for being caught with drugs, but if you are poor, and black, and you get caught with drugs, that is an automatic long prison sentence. So the lawyers, researchers, staff and IT support services are all feasting off of the same failed war on drugs carcass.

6. The illegal drug lords make a ton of money off of keeping this harmless weed and other drugs illegal, because that keeps the competition away, and it also drives the price up, because anything that is illegal can be sold for a much higher price, and far fewer competitors are there to deal with. And with the ATF and US Justice Dept now supporting the drug lords, who can argue with that?

https://www.agreenroadjournal.com/2015/11/atf-and-justice-dept-sold-2000-guns-to.html

7. The CIA and associated secret shadow government entities also love the fact that they can make huge obscene profits off of illegal drugs, which finance secret global operations, such as false flag attacks, assassinations, and secret wars that they enjoy and take great pleasure in.

8. The bankers, including the Vatican bank, made or still make huge amounts of money laundering the proceeds coming in from the drug lords, CIA and other involved in selling illegal drugs, including marijuana. Why turn off this lucrative money machine? Keep all drugs illegal! (Sarcasm)

https://www.agreenroadjournal.com/2015/01/cia-drug-dealing-hsbc-money-laundering.html

9. All of those companies making anti Big C drugs, radiation and chemo, need to keep all natural remedies that work against Big C illegal, because they need the profits that are created by their toxic chemical poisons. Marijuana has been proven effective in fighting cancer and pain, but despite this, it is still illegal. We cannot tolerate free or low cost natural solutions that actually work, so they must all be kept illegal and anyone pushing these solutions must be labeled a quack, and tossed into jail for practicing medicine without a license, right?

https://www.agreenroadjournal.com/2014/01/medical-doctors-talk-about-natural.html

10. The mass media which makes up TV, cable, radio, newspapers, magazines and online sites makes a HUGE profit off of advertising drugs non stop, especially during peak viewing times. This kind of rabid promotion of patented drugs is not allowed in the EU mass media at all and is considered a matter for a private conversation between a doctor and their patient, nothing more. Of course, by extension then, the entire mass media complex would not show any favorable news around marijuana and would also attack marijuana or any other illegal drug at any chance, because that is good for their 'advertisers'. No mass media outlet will bite the hand that feeds them, so this is another link in the chain that keeps feeding more people into the Matrix machine that is the medical industrial monopoly.

ADVERSE PATENT CHEMICAL DRUGS CAUSE UP TO 300,000 DEATHS PER YEAR IN THE US ALONE, MAKING IT THE LEADING CAUSE OF DEATHS, BUT THE MASS MEDIA DOES NOT TALK ABOUT THIS, AND IT KEEPS SILENT ABOUT NATURAL SOLUTIONS, FREE OF DEATH SIDE EFFECTS


Adverse drug effects, like those contributing to the HRT controversy, are a primary reason why a leading cause of death is iatrogenic illness, i.e. illness resulting from medical treatment. According to conservative estimates published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, iatrogenic illness is the third-leading cause of death in this country. More than 120,000 people die from adverse effects of prescribed medications each year. [Starfield 2000] However, last year a new study, based on the results of a ten-year survey of governmental statistics, came up with even more dismal figures. [Null, et al, 2003] That study concludes that iatrogenic illness is actually the leading cause of death in Page 5 – They Are Not Side-Effects … They’re Effects! the United States and that adverse reactions to prescription drugs are responsible for more than 300,000 deaths a year.

Meanwhile, the mass media never mentions the benefits of a cheap or free natural herb that can deal with all of the health issues that humanity suffers from, because their advertisers demand this silence, or they will pull their lucrative advertising from that mass media outlet.

DOCTORS TOLD HIM HE WAS DEFINITELY GOING TO DIE  HIS CANCER WAS “INCURABLE” – SO HE DECIDED TO TRY CANNABIS OIL | CULTURE OF AWARENESS
For decades, cannabis has been studied and used to treat and kill cancer cells. There have been numerous medical studies performed and countless examples of people consuming cannabis oil to completely heal themselves from cancer.

This Man Cured His “Incurable” Cancer Using Cannabis Oil

Last year, 50-year old Darren Miller was diagnosed with “incurable, inoperable” lung and pericardial heart sac cancer. His doctors told him that if he pursued chemotherapy, it would buy him merely a year to live. Since this was the only option given to him, he chose to undergo chemotherapy treatment. After conducting research on alternative treatment methods, Miller decided to switch to using cannabis oil, so he and his wife moved to California where he began producing it and using it frequently. Seven months later, Miller’s doctors told him he’s 100% cancer-free, not in remission, which he claims is due to his use of cannabis oil.

Meanwhile, in this upside down backwards world, the suffering, harm and 300,000 deaths caused by toxic deadly drugs/chemo/radiation are legal. Despite all of the studies showing Hemp and Marijuana have hundreds of beneficial, health promoting uses, while causing no deaths, very little harm, it is still classified along with heroin, the worst of the worst 'illegal' drugs.

Drug War Cop Explains Why The War On Drugs/Marijuana Has Been And Still Is An Unconstitutional HUGE Failure, Creating New Form Of Slavery

Prohibition against alcohol did not work, as it caused a huge increase in violence and mayhem plus chaos in society, which is why that misguided 'moral' law was repealed. But the failed Prohibition era law against drugs, including marijuana is still in place, despite causing the same increase in violence, mayhem, chaos and destruction in society.

The vultures though are getting very fat, feasting on the 300,000 dead bodies per year. Notice that this is not published in main stream mass media outlet. Hmmmm, wonder why not?

If you go to this link, you will see the very obvious bias towards drugs, and the negative bias against marijuana in just about the whole article, which is par for the course for any mass media discussion around marijuana. 

Medical uses


Wikipedia; "Cannabis as illustrated in Köhler's book of medicinal plants from 1897

Medical cannabis has several beneficial effects.[5] Evidence is that it helps in chronic pain and muscle spasms.[5] Evidence supports its use for reducing nausea during chemotherapy, improving appetite in HIV/AIDS, improving sleep, and improving tics in Tourettes syndrome.[5]

Notice that this is not published in main stream mass media outlet. Hmmmm, wonder why not?

NATURAL MARIJUANA PROVEN TO WORK AGAINST NAUSEA AND VOMITING CAUSED BY TOXIC MAN MADE DRUGS, CHEMO AND RADIATION


Medical cannabis is effective in chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting (CINV)[4]and may be a reasonable option in those who do not improve following preferential treatment.[20]Comparative studies have found cannabinoids to be more effective than some conventional antiemetics such as prochlorperazine, promethazine, and metoclopramide in controlling CINV,[21[7][22] 

A 2010 Cochrane review said that cannabinoids were "probably effective" in treating chemotherapy-induced nausea in children, but with a high side effect profile (mainly drowsiness, dizziness, altered moods, and increased appetite).[24]

MARIJUANA PROVEN EFFECTIVE AGAINST HIV/AIDS/PAIN


Cannabis appears to be somewhat effective for the treatment of chronic pain, including pain caused by neuropathy and possibly that due to fibromyalgia and rheumatoid arthritis.[26][27] A 2009 review states it was unclear if the benefits were greater than the risks,[26] while a 2011 review considered it generally safe for this use.[27]

A 2015 review found moderate quality evidence that cannabinoids were effective for chronic pain.[5] A 2015 meta-analysis found that inhaled medical cannabis was effective in reducing neuropathic pain in the short term for one in five to six patients.[30] 


MARIJUANA PROVEN EFFECTIVE AROUND NEUROLOGICAL PROBLEMS 


The combination of Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD) extracts give subjective relief of spasticity.[33] Evidence also suggests that oral cannabis extract is effective for reducing patient-centered measures of spasticity.[34] A trial of cannabis is deemed to be a reasonable option if other treatments have not been effective.[4] 

Its use for MS is approved in ten countries.[4][35] A 2012 review found no problems with tolerance, abuse or addiction.[36]"


HISTORY OF MARIJUANA


Cannabis, called má (meaning "hemp; cannabis; numbness") or dàmá 大麻 (with "big; great") in Chinese, was used in Taiwan for fiber starting about 10,000 years ago.[78] The botanist Li Hui-Lin wrote that in China, "The use of Cannabis in medicine was probably a very early development. Since ancient humans used hemp seed as food, it was quite natural for them to also discover the medicinal properties of the plant."[79] 

Emperor Shen-Nung, who was also a pharmacologist, wrote a book on treatment methods in 2737 BCE that included the medical benefits of cannabis. He recommended the substance for many ailments, including constipation, gout, rheumatism, and absent-mindedness.[80]

Cannabis is one of the 50 "fundamental" herbs in traditional Chinese medicine.[81]

The Ebers Papyrus (ca. 1550 BCE) from Ancient Egypt describes medical cannabis.[82] The ancient Egyptians used hemp (cannabis) in suppositories for relieving the pain of hemorrhoids.[83]

Surviving texts from ancient India confirm that cannabis' psychoactive properties were recognized, and doctors used it for treating a variety of illnesses and ailments, including insomnia, headaches, gastrointestinal disorders, and pain, including during childbirth.[84]

The Ancient Greeks used cannabis to dress wounds and sores on their horses,[85] and in humans, dried leaves of cannabis were used to treat nose bleeds, and cannabis seeds were used to expel tapeworms.[85]

In the medieval Islamic world, Arabic physicians made use of the diuretic, antiemetic,antiepileptic, anti-inflammatory, analgesic and antipyretic properties of Cannabis sativa, and used it extensively as medication from the 8th to 18th centuries.[86]

MODERN USE OF MARIJUANA IN MEDICINE


An Irish physician, William Brooke O'Shaughnessy, is credited with introducing the therapeutic use of cannabis to Western medicine, to help treat muscle spasms, stomach cramps and general pain.[87]

Albert Lockhart and Manley West began studying in 1964 the health effects of traditional cannabis use in Jamaican communities. They developed, and in 1987 gained permission to market, the pharmaceutical "Canasol", one of the first cannabis extracts.[88]

In the 1970s, a synthetic version of THC was produced and approved for use in the United States as the drug Marinol.[89] (it does not work, compared to the real deal, just like all of the synthetic patented pain relieving cousins, which cause addiction and have to be taken in larger and larger doses to keep on working)

Voters in eight US states showed their support for cannabis prescriptions or recommendations given by physicians between 1996 and 1999, going against policies of the federal government.[90] As of mid-2014, 23 states plus the District of Columbia have passed medical marijuana laws,[91] and in the November elections three more states (total 26) joined the burgeoning group, many of which are as yet in conflict with conditions set forth by the federal government.

On 15 June 2015, the Colorado Supreme Court ruled that even though medical marijuana is legal in Colorado, employers can fire workers who use marijuana for medical reasons because it violates federal law. The case involved a quadriplegic who had a doctor’s authorization to smoke medical marijuana, but who was fired by Dish Network in 2010 after failing a company drug test.[92]




The use of cannabis, at least as fiber, has been shown to go back at least 10,000 years in Taiwan. "Dà má" (Pinyin pronunciation) is the Chinese expression for cannabis, the first character meaning "big" and the second character meaning "hemp".

MARIJUANA, SOCIETY AND CULTURE

Legal status
See also: Legal and medical status of cannabis, Cannabis in the United Kingdom andMedical cannabis in the United States


Worldwide laws on cannabis possession for medical purposes as of 2014

Medical use of cannabis or preparation containing THC as the active substance is legalized in Austria, Belgium, Canada, Chile, Colombia Czech Republic, Finland, Israel, Netherlands, Spain, the UK and some states in the US, although it is illegal under US federal law.

Cannabis is in Schedule IV of the United Nations' Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs, making it subject to special restrictions. Article 2 provides for the following, in reference to Schedule IV drugs:[93]

A Party shall, if in its opinion the prevailing conditions in its country render it the most appropriate means of protecting the public health and welfare, prohibit the production, manufacture, export and import of, trade in, possession or use of any such drug except for amounts which may be necessary for medical and scientific research only, including clinical trials therewith to be conducted under or subject to the direct supervision and control of the Party.

The convention thus allows countries to outlaw cannabis for all non-research purposes but lets nations choose to allow medical and scientific purposes if they believe total prohibition is not the most appropriate means of protecting health and welfare. The convention requires that states that permit the production or use of medical cannabis must operate a licensing system for all cultivators, manufacturers and distributors and ensure that the total cannabis market of the state shall not exceed that required "for medical and scientific purposes."[93]
Programs

As of 2014, 23 states plus the District of Columbia have passed medical cannabis laws,[91] but its use remains illegal by federal law.[35] In 1978 the US government created a program called the Compassionate Investigational New Drug program which dispenses cannabis cigarettes to 20 people with debilitating conditions[8] including glaucoma and a rare bone disease. The program was "closed to new candidates in 1991",[8] but as of 2013, allowed four people previously in the program to continue receiving medical cannabis.

DISTRIBUTION OF MEDICAL MARIJUANA


Medical marijuana dispensary

The method of obtaining medical cannabis varies by region and by legislation. In the US, most consumers grow their own or buy it from marijuana dispensaries in the 23 states and the District of Columbia that permit the use of medical cannabis.[4][94] Marijuana vending machines for selling or dispensing cannabis are in use in the United States and are planned to be used in Canada.[95] In 2014, the startup Meadow began offering on-demand delivery of medical marijuana in the San Francisco Bay Area, through their mobile app.[96]

MEDICAL INSURANCE DOES NOT PAY FOR MEDICAL MARIJUANA; WHY NOT?


In the United States, health insurance companies may not pay for a medical marijuana prescription as the Food and Drug Administration must approve any substance for medicinal purposes. Before this can happen, the FDA must first permit the study of the medical benefits and drawbacks of the substance, which it has not done since it was placed on Schedule I of the Controlled Substances Act in 1970.

Therefore, all expenses incurred fulfilling a medical marijuana prescription will possibly be incurred as out-of-pocket.[97] However, the New Mexico Court of Appeals has ruled that workers' compensation insurance must pay for marijuana prescribed as part of the state's Medical Cannabis Program.[98]

WHAT IS FAIR AND EQUITABLE PUBLIC POLICY AND LAW? WHAT WORKS FOR SEVEN FUTURE GENERATIONS WITHOUT CAUSING HARM OR DEATHS?



Credit/source Gary English

Who is the real criminal? Why are we allowing someone to kill and harm millions of people legally, but keeping a proven pain relieving, cancer fighting herb illegal, and throwing those who promote it into jail as criminals?

300,000 people killed each year by drug adverse events, x 10 years = 3 MILLION PEOPLE

It is an upside down, backwards world, thanks to Capitalism and greed.

Right is wrong

Natural, effective, and harmless is evil and criminal

Chemical toxic poisons are legal and good for you

Anyone promoting natural and good must be thrown into jail and labeled a quack

Those causing suffering and deaths with addictive toxic poisons must be rewarded, honored and called Gods

MOSTLY POOR KIDS GET LOCKED UP FOR LIFE FOR SMOKING MARIJUANA; HARSH PENALTIES ARE DISCRIMINATORY, RASCIST AND INSANE


  "Middle-class kids don't get locked up for smoking pot, and poor kids do," he said. "And African-American kids and Latino kids are more likely to be poor and less likely to have the resources and the support to avoid unduly harsh penalties."

LOCAL TOWN IS STARTING TO GROW MARIJUANA, TO SOLVE FINANCIAL PROBLEMS, AS REPORTED BY NATURALNEWS


NaturalNews; With a national unemployment rate that now hovers around 23 percent, the European country of Spain is in dire straits economically. 

But one local town, Rasquera, population 900, has come up with a plan that will save itself.
http://www.naturalnews.com/035133_marijuana_Spain_revenue_generation.html

And what is wrong with that? Should all of those people be thrown in jail for life, as many Republicans advocate?

The pill pushers are free and never charged for killing a jet full of people a day, but the harmless plant that never killed anyone, now that is something we need to lock people up for life for having even one marijuana cigarette.  Wouldn't you agree, when it comes to protecting the profits of Big Pharma, it all makes sense, because the competition has to be kept illegal?

SECRET DOCUMENT REVEALS THAT BIG PHARMA IS BEHIND EFFORT TO KEEP MARIJUANA ILLEGAL AND ELIMINATE ANY POTENTIAL CHEAP OR FREE COMPETITION FROM THEIR ADDICTING, EXPENSIVE, KILLS A WHOLE TON OF PEOPLE SYNTHETIC DRUGS

DUD April 23, 2016 "..A not quite new but hitherto neglected confidential document of Partnership for Drug-Free Kids showed that several pharmaceutical companies financed anti-legislation campaigns, among them Purdue Pharma and Abbott Laboratories. Accordingly, Purdue is one of the donors to the Community Anti-Drug Coalition of America.

These companies all produce strong painkillers from opium, all of which are addictive (which is at least disputed in the case of cannabis) and have led a number of Americans into addiction. Sixteen thousand a year die from an overdose.."

""Sixteen thousand a year die from an overdose""

That's 16,000 death's a year from pharmaceutical painkillers..

Mary Jane = the first death in history is still to happen, humanity and other animals have been using that plant for thousands of years.."

In this upside down backwards bizarro world, legal things are toxic, expensive, addicting and kill people. But the things that work, don't kill anyone, and have no addiction process plus they are free are illegal.

WHAT YOU CAN DO; CHANGE.ORG PETITION TO FREE MEDICAL MARIJUANA PROMOTERS SENTENCED TO TWENTY YEARS IN PRISON FOR SOMETHING THAT ONLY HELPS THOSE SUFFERING FROM PAIN




Petitioning Pardon Attorney

20 Years in Prison are Too Many for Medical Marijuana Compassionate Care! 

SIGN PETITION: FREE OUR DADS!

Over 9 years ago our Dads left us and went to prison for operating a state-legal medical marijuana dispensary in California. They were given mandatory minimum sentences of over twenty years. Today, marijuana is fully legal in four states yet our Dads remain in prison.

I am Jasmine Scarmazzo and I’m 13-years-old. I’m writing this petition for me and my friend Nina Montes, who is 11. We want our Dads to come home and are asking President Obama to grant them clemency. That’s the only way they’ll be released without serving over twenty years.

In California, medical marijuana has been legal since 1996 and there are thousands of medical marijuana dispensaries here. But over the years, some of them were raided and shut down by the federal government. Our Dads were owners of one of these dispensaries but since they were convicted, the Department of Justice and Congress have made changes in law and policy that mean our Dads would likely not be in prison if they were to be arrested today.

Our Dads are serving the longest federal prison sentences given to medical marijuana dispensary operators and the only Medical Marijuana Dispensary Operators who have been convicted of conducting a Continuing Criminal Enterprise (CCE). Following trial, two jury members recanted their guilty verdicts and gave sworn affidavits to that effect when learning the CCE conviction carried a 20 year Mandatory Minimum Sentence.

Today, twenty-three states and the District of Columbia have medical marijuana laws in place. In December 2015, Congress passed legislation that protects dispensary operators against arrest. Also, since 2013, the Obama administration has directed the Department of Justice to no longer prosecute medical—or even recreational—marijuana providers who are operating under state law. Times have changed. 

But because our Dads were sentenced before this happened, they’ll have to serve their full sentences unless granted clemency from President Obama. That means we’ll be without them for another decade. We’re already starting high school and junior high school without them there to see us grow up. 

Please sign this petition and ask President Obama to grant our Dads clemency.

WHAT YOU CAN DO: SIGN PETITION TO REMOVE CLASSIFICATION 1 FROM CANNABIS/MARIJUANA


Subject: Remove the Classification 1 from Cannabis/Marijuana

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.

That's why I signed a petition to President Barack Obama, which says:

"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."

Will you sign this petition? 


THE WAR ON DRUGS IS A COMPLETE AND ABSOLUTE FAILURE; IT IS TIME TO GIVE IT UP, JUST LIKE PROHIBITION ERA ANTI ALCOHOL LAWS, THEY DON'T WORK

Many people still believe in conspiracy theories, disinformation, the hormesis theory and lots of myths, despite none of them being true. Maybe it is time for people to wake up and smell the lies plus deception?
