Petition: Remove marijuana from Schedule I of CSA
The time has come to legalize and regulate marijuana in the United States. The ill effects of prohibition have plagued our citizens for much too long, promoting needless suffering by delaying necessary medical treatment and ruining lives by shuffling marijuana users through the criminal justice system. All across this country, otherwise law-abiding citizens are thrown in jail or fined for smoking a plant less addictive and less harmful than alcohol and cigarettes, and patients in non-medical marijuana states cannot obtain medicine needed to treat serious conditions like cancer and epilepsy. While removing marijuana from Schedule I of the Controlled Substances Act is not a magic bullet, it is one step toward just and evolved marijuana laws.
