This petition is important because Federal and State laws prohibiting responsible marijuana use are clearly unjust and not scientifically based. Marijuana is still subject to Federal Schedule I rules and regulations, which is unjust and this is why it is important that continue to support the movement until we learn otherwise.
Schedule I drugs, substances, or chemicals are defined as drugs with no currently accepted medical use and a high potential for abuse. Schedule I drugs are the most dangerous drugs of all the drug schedules with potentially severe psychological or physical dependence (http://www.justice.gov/dea/druginfo/ds.shtml).
Some examples of Schedule I drugs are: heroin, lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD), marijuana (cannabis), 3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine (ecstasy), methaqualone, and peyote (http://www.justice.gov/dea/druginfo/ds.shtml)
Marijuana is classified to have no medical value and is highly addictive.
Clinical trials are suggesting, however, that marijuana to the contrary of Schedule 1 drugs, has showed medical benifits (http://www.cmaj.ca/cgi/rapidpdf/cmaj.091414v1)
Marijuana can become pchycoloigically addictive but no more than caffiene or alcohol (Marshall, Patrick. "Marijuana Laws." CQ Researcher 11 Feb. 2005: 125-48. Web. 21 Jan. 2013).
Marijuana is not physically addictive. If someone is smoking marijuana for a long time and then stops, the body will not die and no physical symptomps related to withdraw would occur.
This is to decriminalize marijuana and regulate it responsibliy, so that we can learn more about this herb, it continues to look extremely likely the potitive benefits of thedecriminalization of marijuana will largely out weigh the negative effects.
The best way to accomplish this would be to reform current alcohol and marijuana laws so that they equal other in severity.
1.Encouraging drug use should be minimalized which is why the advertising of either alcohol, tabacoo, or marijuana should incurr fines. This way, we curb submillinal encouragement, by not encourage firms to advertise these products which in turn lowers totoal costs, which in turn end up saving the consumer, anyway.
2. Marijuana is then legal in accordance with the same laws of tabacoo and alcohal.
We need a plan to decriminalize and regulate marijuana.
