      Manila, Philippines

Medical Cannabis has been proven to minimize the risk of cancer and cure illness such as multiple sclerosis, glaucoma, relieves pain for those people who undergo therapy such as chemotherapy and the likes. People here in our country need to know more about cannabis. They were blinded from the very beginning about the real facts about Cannabis. I think it is the time that we make some changes about the law and let us be more open about the positive effects of the plant. There are a lot of studies and researches that give us facts on Cannabis is all about. In some countries this has been legalized and in some states in the U.S. as well. I think Philippines needs to check the data again and consider legalizing the plant and if not at least give the people choices if they are going to take pharmaceutical drug (chemical) or Cannabis (natural) like what they are doing in CA.  People in CA who choose to use Medical Cannabis is given a card that they can use so that they will not be included in the prohibition of the said plant. I know it will be hard but in the long run I know this will bring good to our country and our people.

Poverty can end as well, world hunger could end. A large variety of food products can be generated from hemp. The seeds contain one of the highest sources of protein in nature; they have two essential fatty acids that clean your body of cholesterol. These essential fatty acids are not found anywhere else in nature! Consuming pot seeds are the best thing you could do for your body. Eat uncooked hemp seeds.  You can live healthy for the rest of your life eating nothing but hemp seeds.  

These are just few facts about Cannabis, I hope that the people who have read this petition will do research on their own and I do hope you will see the light.  Let us make this change, even not for us, think of this as an investment for our future generation.  We don't want our siblings to undergo the same mistake.  Let us think of the people who are fighting for their lives and their last option is Cannabis but they can't have it, now even they do, they have a big chance of ending in jail for the rest of their lives.  Please have courage to fight for what we know is right.  People are dying because of not knowing, not knowing the cure to their illness, not knowing where to get Cannabis, not knowing their right to have access to it.  One signature can make a big difference.

DOH, DDB and PDEA
Please listen to the voice of the people. Let us end the legal lies and start saving lives.

Sincerely,

    3. Why is marijuana illegal?

      Anne Aguila
      Petition Organizer

      Most of human history, marijuana has been completely legal. It’s not a recently discovered plant, nor is it a long-standing law. Marijuana has been illegal for less than 1% of the time that it’s been in use. Its known uses go back further than 7,000 B.C. and it was legal as recently as when Ronald Reagan was a boy.

      The marijuana plant, of course, has an incredible number of uses. The earliest known woven fabric was apparently of hemp, and over the centuries the plant was used for food, incense, cloth, rope, and much more. This adds to some of the confusion over its introduction in the United States, as the plant was well known from the early 1600′s, but did not reach public awareness as a recreational drug until the early 1900′s.

      US's first marijuana law was enacted at Jamestown Colony, Virginia in 1619. It was a law “ordering” all farmers to grow Indian hempseed. Hemp was such a critical crop for a number of purposes that the government went out of its way to encourage growth.

    4. Why is marijuana illegal?

      Anne Aguila
      Petition Organizer

      Many people assume that marijuana was made illegal through some kind of process involving scientific, medical, and government hearings; that it was to protect the citizens from what was determined to be a dangerous drug.

      The actual story shows a much different picture. Those who voted on the legal fate of this plant never had the facts, but were dependent on information supplied by those who had a specific agenda to deceive lawmakers. You’ll see below that the very first federal vote to prohibit marijuana was based entirely on a documented lie on the floor of the Senate.

      You’ll also see that the history of marijuana’s criminalization is filled with:

      Racism
      Fear
      Protection of Corporate Profits
      Yellow Journalism
      Ignorant, Incompetent, and/or Corrupt Legislators
      Personal Career Advancement and Greed

      These are the actual reasons marijuana is illegal.

      publicity , whether bad or good is still publicity that's what they say..
      even if we didn't get the opportunity to speak the truth somehow we are making news and people are getting the gist of the truth. they will question themselves and hopefully, will do research on their own.

      Petition Organizer

      An event was held at Quezon City Memorial Circle last November 3, 2013 to show support for the upcoming meeting of PCCS that will be held on November 4 about the possible legalization of Marijuana in our Country. This event was also held to celebrate life and hope and for us to be educated on what Cannabis can really do for us. Philippine Moms for Marijuana and PCCS are helping a lot of ill children with their fight against epilepsy. 2 children already died because their doctors don’t even know that their illness can be cured by Marijuana. Plain ignorance can take away lives. Please let us not wait for the death rate to soar up before we do something. As we always say… One signature can make a big difference.
