State of Kansas: Legalize Marijuana for medicinal and recreational purposes

    1. Petition by

      Gage Cole

      Wichita, KS

I'm going to give you the top 10 reasons why I think Marijuana should be legal. 

10.Prohibition has failed to control the use and domestic production of Marijuana

9. Legalization will bring money to government for things that we need to improve our country instead of it going to drug dealers. (Colorado made 1 million on the first day) 

8.Legalization would mean the development of Hemp as a valuable and diverse agricultural crop, including its new development as bio fuel. 

7. Marijuana is not a lethal substance, yet alcohol and cigarettes, both lethal, are accepted socially and judicially. 

6. It costs our government a lot more money to arrest Cannabis users than to tax it and let adults make their own decisions on whether to use the plant. 

5. Cannabis is 100% naturally grown, tobacco is drenched in fertilizer. 

4. Cannabis can be used to treat the symptoms of cancer patients who are having a hard time with side effects. Also, it's prescribed to treat A.D.D and many more things. 

3. Cannabis can be a safe and useful sleep aid

2. The gateway effect is false. People think that Marijuanna will eventually lead to harsher drugs but thats not true. What leads to harsher drugs is the prohibition. When people go to buy their cannabis from their sketchy drug dealer, the drug dealer is probably selling more than just Marijuana and talks people into buying it. If it were legal and we could just walk into our local dispensary and buy it, we wouldn't have that problem.

1. It's amazing. No matter what stress is going on in my life, I smoke some sweet herb and it all fades away for a few hours and gives me the most relaxing feeling in the world. And no matter how hard i try to explain it, words don't do it justice. 

So, tell me why you think Cannabis should be legal! God knows there's thousands of reasons!

      There are many reasons to legalize this, it is very physically beneficial and is a proven economic stimulant.

      Because my adult children shouldn't be made to be "criminals" for smoking something natural that grows out of the ground, makes a person mellow, search the refrigerator, and sit in front of the TV with the remote IN A SUPPOSED FREE COUNTRY!!! Our country has so little by little become a police state that it snuck up on us, that we have lost the right to pursue life, liberty, and happiness, as long as it doesn't hurt anyone else. And another thing, I worked for a lot of years! I hate it that our tax dollars from long, hard hours of work have to go to imprison people that smoke pot. My ex went to prison for 14 months for smoking pot, and when people were sharing their stories why they were there, one would say he murdered his wife, one would say robbery, one would say rape, (all of which SHOULD be in prison), but when they asked my ex what he was in for he was embarrassed, as anyone would be to say, "pot", and "I inhaled". The government should 1.) GET A BRAIN! 2.) SHOULD GIVE US BACK OUR RIGHTS!

      I'm out on workmans comp with 2 rotator cuffs tares. I'm also taking codeine pills that make me sick. They can't do sergery because my sugars are so high. I'm been suffering with this since March 2014. The pills make me sick and are addictive. Nothing else helps with my pain. Weed seems to work the best for me. As it stands I'll be out for a very long time suffering and have applied for SSD. They need to legalize it for people like me who suffer with a lot of pain. I'm also a regenerated voter and will vote for it when the time comes.
