Marijuana consumers should not be forced into treatment – Drop out of SAM!

    1. Petition by

      Marijuana Policy Project

Former Congressman Patrick Kennedy is the chairman of Smart Approaches to Marijuana (SAM), a new national organization that wants to force marijuana consumers into treatment and subject them to mandatory health screenings and "marijuana education" camps.

Yet he comes from a family that made a fortune selling alcohol – a product that is objectively far more harmful than marijuana!

Sign our petition today calling on Patrick Kennedy to drop out of SAM or explain why he is working to keep a less harmful alternative to alcohol illegal.

To:
Patrick Kennedy
Marijuana consumers should not be forced into treatment or subjected to mandatory health screenings and "marijuana education" camps.

You come from a family that made a fortune selling alcohol – a product that is objectively far more harmful than marijuana.

Please drop out of Smart Approaches to Marijuana or explain why you are working to keep a less harmful alternative to alcohol illegal.

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      Tobacco is much more harmful to everyone and has proven to NOT be helpful to anyone, except for lobbyists and the elected officials that the bribe. Marijuana has proven to be helpful in a great many illnesses. STOP the prohibition.
