O/T Please sign the petition to reschedule cannabis

In the United States, all preparations of the Cannabis plant are currently listed under Schedule I of the controlled substances act. This definition is reserved for drugs which have "no currently accepted medical use". Furthermore, cannabis' toxicity is virtually non-existent compared to that of heroin or cocaine, cannabis lacks the high abuse potential required for inclusion in Schedule I or II. Currently, 16 states and Washington D.C. have legalized the use of medical marijuana, and hemp products are sold widely in the U.S. today. The problem with leaving this up to the states is that some citizens may never be given the freedom. Cannabis could be rescheduled either legislatively, through Congress, or through the executive branch. We the people are asking for your help.

The is a petition to the WH requesting our govt remove Marijuana from a Schedule 1 drug-meaning no medical use, high risk of abuse. Other drugs included as Schedule 1 are Heroin, LSD and Peyote. Marijuana is nowhere near as damaging as these drugs nor does it have the potential for abuse that heroin has.

Schedule 2 drugs include opiates, cocaine and methamphetamine which all do have medical uses but are far more dangerous and abuse causing than marijuana.

If marijuana were rescheduled the Feds would have to leave medical mj states, patients and caregivers alone. Then people like me could use our preferred meds w/o concern of Federal punishment.

I and the many other people who use this plant for medicine over the more dangerous and addictive alternatives would sincerely appreciate your help on this issue.

NO Way!

As someone in a "medical" marijuana state... I despise all attempts at legalization of the stuff.. and let's face it.. that's the bottom goal.  

I know your position Friday, and your legit medical need for it so I am not going to go into this again.  Not going to give even an inch.. because I've seen what an "inch" ends up being.
