Legalize Marijuana in Oklahoma

Hello,

This is a petition to fully legalize marijuana in the state of Oklahoma. Prisons are over-populated with non-violent offenders and many tax dollars are being spent on processing and preventing crime related to the plant. It's clear that the current prohibition laws are ineffective. Marijuana should be legalized for growth and private consumption as well as for manufacturing products that could be derived from the plant or its seeds. The therapeutic potential of marijuana is great, and it's Hemp characteristics open up a wide range of industrial possibilities (i.e. fuel alternatives, paper, beauty supplies). The legalization of marijuana would also certainly lead to taxation of goods produced from it, which would provide excellent economic benefit. I strongly urge you to sign this petition to legalize marijuana in the state of Oklahoma. Thank you.

      God put it here for us to use its natural medicine from God. People need it for medical purposes and people shouldn't be in jail/prison over a natural herb with healing properties that God created.

      Quit wasting my tax money on incarnating people for possessing a plant.

      I have fibromyalgia and neuropathy and am disabled. My pain medicine costs me almost my entire disability check every month. Plus, trying to find a doctor who is not afraid if getting in trouble by the DEA for writing my prescriptions. Marijauana would save me money and not have side effects that are detrimental to my health.

      Alcohol kills more people than marijuana has ever and will ever do but we still maintain this ridiculous notion that marijuana should be illegal?
