K Downey started this petition to Commissioners of Oneida County

Several cities in the US have passed marijuana decriminalization laws. As a county, we should also do so. 

Chicago, IL; Houston, TX; Philadelphia, PA, etc, have done so as local powers directed by the will of the electorates thereof. Here is a link to a full list of the largest 15 cities in America which have done this:

We propose the following resolution to be adopted by Oneida County Commissioners:

WHEREAS

We maintain that the Constitution of the United States does not name the War on Drugs as a power afforded to government, 

WHEREAS

We maintain that as a county, we should be able to determine what laws we want to live under, except where the US Constitution establishes Supremacy via named spheres of regulatable aspects of society (interstate commerce and national defense, for example)

WHEREAS

We maintain that if a power is not named to the federal or any government in the US Constitution, then that "power" does not exist, and the government found to be lacking in mandate. 

WHEREAS

We conclusively maintain that if the people of a locale cannot determine what federal laws to thwart by introducing legal, local law, supported by the people, then recourse moves inevitably towards a more volatile character, indubitably for the negative experience of society as a whole.

THEREFORE, we, the duly elected representatives of the people of Oneida County, the Commission thereof, RESOLVE:

1. that all County-wide agencies shall prosecute no persons for the possession of Marijuana on this day (                          )

NOTES:

All signatories are asked to be citizens of Oneida County.  You must provide and address when signing.

We believe trafficking is a separate issue to be addressed, and therefore did not want to get complicated in the agenda.
