Fight for your rights! Decriminalize and Legalize Marijuana

    1. Petition by

      S.D.S. 420

      Austin, TX

The decriminalization of marijuana is important due to the fact that many lives will change over night because of the stiff laws placed on the possesion of marijuana. People who have strategic careers and who are going to school to have a career will no longer live that dream due to a choice of smoking a plant. Jails are overcrowded, resulting in people with crimes such as rape, assault and lewd acts to roam free while people with simple marijuana charges remain incarcerated. IT IS TIME FOR A CHANGE CITIZENS OF TEXAS. Stand up for your right to be heard and make a change for the future of this great state. Help deminish the punishment and severe penalties for possesing marijuana. This will not be an easy accomplishment but if we, the people, stand up for our beliefs then we have every duty to do so. This is our lives, our world, our state....let's make this happen one signature at a time. Thank you for your time and consideration people.

      I would like to advise everyone that I will do some tweaking to this petition to spruce it up and then we are off! I will be taking it public and I will do more research on what I need to do in oder to organize or commit to an organization to make further progress. I have a great belief in what I am doing and with your help, that belief gets stronger.

      Thanks everyone so much, keep up the great work.

      One signature at a time reflects one step closer to accomplishing a voice, a vote, a change. I started this petition in hopes of making history in the State of Texas about the stiff laws placed on Marijuana and the possession of it. I, myself, have been charged with a class B misdemeanor for the possession of Marijuana. I am a paralegal. One glance at my record from a potential employer will deflate any chance of employment. I accomplished so much through blood, sweat and tears to gain my degree and now, over a plant, can have that taken away from me over night. Why? Is this what America, Texas has come down to? To gain extra funds? The stiff laws on Marijuana and the charges I face will vaporize any chance of employment in a career I tried so hard to achieve.

      I would personally like to shake the hands and converse with all of you who have signed this petition. I cannot begin to tell you how much 3 minutes of your time so sign this petition means to me.

    4. Great progress so far....

      I have not even went public about this petition, via web, and already it is gaining signatures like crazy. I am proud to see that there are people who would like to see the stiff laws and penalties vanish.
      I am a optimistic individual and I would like to say there would be no back-lash in the event of decriminalizing Marijuana, but I would have to lie to say that. What negative effects do you think could come out of this? With the border wars? The drug dealers?...I am curious to your input. We have done a great job so far, keep it up and spread the word.
