NORML’s Legalize Marijuana Petition #1, legalization half of top ten petitions | The NORML Stash Blog

I am the producer of The NORML Network, the host of the NORML SHOW LIVE and The NORML Stash Blog, and NORML's Outreach Coordinator. I'm married, live in Portland, Oregon, and I am a registered medical marijuana caregiver in this state. I've worked days as an IT geek and nights as a professional musician. Previously, I have been the host of my own political talk radio show on satellite radio. I've been the High Times "Freedom Fighter of the Month" and I travel across the country to educate people on marijuana reform. I've dedicated my life to bringing an end to adult marijuana prohibition and re-legalizing cannabis hemp, and I'm honored to be chosen by NORML to give voice to the Marijuana Nation and to speak for those who can't speak up.

    I want it legalized worldwide for recreational use…
    I feel no need to make it a medicine, that which they claim it isnt from square 1.
    Make a world wide petition and I will help the cause get sigs…I promise you that!
    Otherwise I have to do what I have to do to get what I want, just like you are trying to do.

    Except that my way serves us all to abolish fraudulent laws that affect us all and criminalizes
    you and me for a flower that they regulate.
    Or laws that make having an empty pipe illegal!

    To take care of the Mexican Drug Cartels, the most dangerous of the Illegal Aliens,
    we are simply going to legalize the self cultivation of Marijuana for all adult Americans.
    This will force these drug gangs, which now control over 230 major American Cities,
    to go out of business in about 3 weeks. You see you can “grow your own” for free and
    70% of the Cartel money comes from the sale of Marijuana.

    The government comes in and sucks up every resource know to man,
    similar to a cartel imo and makes it illegal for us to do the same as they do…

    Dear Folks,

    I hail the efforts of NORML to promote the full legalization of Marijuana! It’s a long time coming…

    With that having been said, I would like to add to the conversation by announcing another petition that I put forward on September 23. It asks that the White House consider Medical Cannabis for seriously ill patients. You see, my wife has been struggling with stage IV, metastatic breast cancer for the past nineteen (19) years. She has been through several forms of chemotherapy and is currently involved with a phase I clinical trial which has caused her to be constantly nauseaus and to experience “spontaneous emesis” or vomitting. She’s been on the trial for over two years and none of the anti-emetic drugs work effectively. In the past year, she began losing weight at an alarming rate. Enough so that they explained to us that she has to maintain her weight in order to remain on the clinical trial.

    After many conversations with a multitude of health care professionals with one of the top cancer hospitals in the world, the conclusion is that she is the perfect candidate for Medical Cannabis. The problem is IT’S ILLEGAL! She can have all the opiates she needs (or wants) but Cannabis still remains unavailable.

    I find the situation absurd and quite distasteful. Obviously, no one in Government is paying attention to the reality of the situation! Why spend all efforts to save someone’s life when they are going to die from the treatment?

    Needless to say, I was compelled to write a petition when the White House offered their site as a venue. So far, we have 14 signatures and we obviously need more!

    Enough said, PLEASE HELP!!!

    PLEASE CONSIDER SIGNING MY PETITION FOR MEDICAL CANNABIS:

    Thank you!

    Sincerely,
    Donald Wright

    On a related note, here’s a petition at We the People I’m trying to help promote:

    Eliminate or Reform Departments whose Officers are Required by Law to Lie to the American People.

    http://wh.gov/gKN

    This one isn’t yet publicly visible or searchable at the site because it hasn’t passed the 150 signature threshold. Only 26 more–it’s almost there. Help out if you find it worthy of signing, and please spread the word.

    This petition looks to pressure President Obama from another angle than “legalize marijuana.” This one looks to inform people about the undue power the ONDCP has in trying to stymie any legalization efforts of a Schedule I substance, regardless of what science shows. That’s just wrong.

    Hopefully this petition will appeal to people who may not specifically support MJ legalization but are fed up with corrupt and arrogant government. The MJ legalization petitions are going heroic–this one aims to be their sidekick.

    There are many other petitions there on varying subjects worthy of consideration. Please check them out, and be sure to visit the site every day–it takes only 5-10 minutes to catch up on new petitions. Some may be related to petitions you’ve already signed and need support.

    Keep up the good fight NORML and RR.

    Thanks for your time.
