Legalize weed in NC

This petition had 120 supporters



I am writing to ask you to help keep my close friends and family safe. People who are seventeen and eighteen should not have charges without good reasons. I do not think that possession of under a half ounce of weed is a reason for a charge.

Its getting to the point where I'm scared to leave my house even when I have nothing on me. I have no charges but I was followed by a police officer to my friends house. He pulled into her driveway and cut me off. He said that I "looked suspicious" because I walked the mile to her house in 75 degree weather on a Saturday and happened to have a bag on my back. Many of my friends and family have charges for having under half an ounce on them.

Everywhere I look there's a cop and I hate it. How long before they bust down my doors with a warrant and ask to search my house? This law needs to be changed. Most people I know who are my age (17 and 18 year olds) do not believe that this law is morally right in any way. We feel like our friends and family are getting charges for possession and there is nothing we can do about it. I don't know if this petition will make any difference at all but I figured I would try. I just can't sit around and feel okay anymore while everyone I know is hurting..
