Please sign and/or share this petition to decriminalize the responsible use of marijuana.
Marijuana is the most popularly used illegal drug. Which means, demand is high, and because marijauna can grow relatively easily (it is natural to earth), supply is also high.
Still, there is a good chance that decriminalizing marijuana would largly pull the drug out of the black market.
It is also believed that a large portion of organized crime's income and actions are supplemented through marijuana sales.
Because recent studies that show marijuana is relatively safe when compared to all the other drugs classified with or even below marijuana (check federal scheduling levels I - IV), it would be smartest to regulate marijuana in a more tolerated market, in a manner similiar to alcohal and tabacco - to get it out of organized crime.
Ultimately there is a chance to supress organized crime, strengthen relations between the Americas, and switch control of revenue in more transparent market.
Please look into rescheduling marijuana from a level one narcotic to a level four narcotic. Marijuana has shown promise, medically, and as evidence; many states allow medical marijuana. This completely contradicts marijuana being classified as a schedule one narcotic. Level four narcotics include Xanax, Soma, Darvon, Darvocet, Valium, Ativan, Talwin, Ambien. Marijuana was criminalized under false pretenses without scientific backing. We vote to reclassify marijuana to the same level doctors prescribe anti-depressants and other drugs (Level 4). Further, the recreational use of marijuana should be completely decriminalized as long as though it is consumed in a responsible manner according to laws and guidelines similar to the use of alcohol.
Keep up the great work. Look what you've accomplished!
