Please sign this petition asking President Obama to sign an executive order to remove marijuana as a schedule one drug. Marijuana is medicine to lots of patients across the U.S who are currently prescribed marijuana legally to deal with their illness. In other parts of the U.S we have millions of people who are denied access to marijuana. Marijuana should be treated the same as alcohol and tobacco. Marijuana is currently on the Schedule one list alongside drugs like LSD and heroin. The Drug Enforcement Agency defines Class one drugs as having a high potential for abuse and no currently accepted medical use.
"I do believe that treating this as a public-health issue, the same way we do with cigarettes or alcohol, is the much smarter way to deal with it." Obama told Rolling Stone magazine.
It is untenable over the long term for the Justice Department or the DEA to be enforcing a patchwork of laws, where something that’s legal in one state could get you a 20-year prison sentence in another,” Obama told Rolling Stone magazine.
