Repeal outdated MARIJUANA laws, and release federal marijuana prisoners ...

0 have signed. Let’s get to 10,000!

Here in the United States, more than thirty states have legalized marijuana to some degree. Ten states and the District of Columbia have downright decriminalized marijuana for recreational purposes. It is widely accepted as a form of medicine to treat epilepsy, pain, and many other physical and mental ailments. And two thirds of the population supports decriminalization.

Nevertheless, marijuana is still illegal under federal law. It's classified as a schedule 1 controlled substance, a schedule above Crack and Meth. As a result, non-violent men and women remain imprisoned with harsh sentences for marijuana offenses. Take, for example, Quawntay Adams, a 43-year-old father who has been imprisoned a jaw-dropping fifteen years for merely attempting to possess marijuana. More troubling is the fact that he still has twenty years remaining on his 35-year sentence.

Clearly our outdated marijuana laws are fundamentally unfair when a non-violent man could be sentenced to life in prison for the very same conduct wealthy business men legally recieve wealth and no punishment for. This inequality and, frankly, unequal protection of the law is a result of outdated and conflicting marijuana laws in the United States. The only solution is an end to prohibition and the immediate release of federal prisoners who've served more than ten years for marijuana offenses.

By signing this petition you are supporting the change of such outdated laws and the release of non-violent offenders who've served more than 10 years for marijuana offenses. I encourage you all to sign and help bring awareness to this cause by informing others and demanding justice every chance you get.
