2nd Petition for the Immediate Re-Legalization of Marijuana

    1. Bruce Cain
    2. Petition by

      Bruce Cain

      Dearborn Heights, MI

We the undersigned demand that President Obama immediately implement he MERP Model for Marijuana Re-Legalization through a special emergency "joint" session of Congress.  This is the same approach that was used to pass the TARP Bailout on 10/03/2008: a bill that was opposed by over 80% of the American People and which only benefited the very same "banksters" that have destroyed the US economy.  According to a recent Zogby Poll Marijuana Re-Legalization is now supported by 52% of the American people and is expected to grow by at least 1% each year.   The MERP model basically treats the unlimited, untaxed, unregulated "self cultivation" of Marijuana as a sacred, inalienable right.  By implementing MERP three important goals would immediately be achieved without any expenditure of American "blood or treasure."  It would (1) destroy the Mexican Drug Cartels; (2) allow access to free medicine by the sick and the poor, and (3) will immediately stop any further home invasions by law enforcement.  It will also unleash the Agricultural and Industrial products that can be made from Cannabis (e.g., Hemp).   Note that a street address is optional as long as you provide an email address.  The purpose of this petition is to send a message to Obama and alert the activist community about upcoming events to end Marijuana Prohibition by implementing the MERP Model.

      I encourage activsts to watch/share this video in order to understand that those of us wanting no "taxes, regulations or control" over Cannabis are being censored at the Hash Bash and elsewhere from groups and individuals that REALLY don't want you to have the right to "grow your own."

      I am signing because this ONE issue has DEVASTATED African-American & Latino Communitities via incarceration, and has contributed to GOP Voter Suppression efforts because of felonies resulting in denial of voting rights. It has also senselessly pillaged other rights like education access, housing, political aspirations, etc.. It has also contributed to MASSIVE reductions in wealth in those same communities. Just this ONE stroke oof the pen- UNRESTRICTED ACCESS TO CANNABIS VIA LEGALIZATION- would provide a PLETHORA of solutions to major problems we face- HEALTH, ENVIRONMENTAL, ENERGY- not to even mention many others that would impact us positively on a Global level. This is no longer a "fringe" topic- it's a matter of SURVIVAL. WE IN THE AFRICAN-AMERICAN & LATINO COMMUNITIES SUPPORT YOU, MR. PRESIDENT- BUT WE ARE BEING WRONGFULLY MARGINALIZED BY THESE GROSSLY UNFAIR & DESTRUCTIVE LAWS. IF YOU ARE SERIOUS ABOUT TURNING THIS HORRIBLE SITUATION AROUND AND IF YOU REALLY WANT TO WIN THIS ELECTION HANDS-DOWN- LEGALIZE IT. WE ARE SICK. WE ARE HURTING. WE ARE LOOKING TO YOU TO DO WHAT YOU CAN DO TODAY TO PUT AN END TO THIS INSANITY. WE WILL HELP YOU- IF YOU WILL HELP US.

      DO YOUR PART- LEGALIZE CANNABIS NOW.

      THEN WE WILL DO OUR PART & GET YOU AND OTHER DEMOCRATS IN OFFICE IN NOVEMBER.

      THANK YOU.

      It's just logical. Nothing about marijuana prohibition makes sense. Quit wasting our tax money for your own political gains.

      Its time for this ridiculousness to stop. Quit sending out children to jail and/or forced 'treatment' for smoking grass.

      Marijuana is an effective alternative to narcotics when being used to treat pain. Marijuana is not lethal in any dosage and is also non-addictive.
