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.
