Reform marijuana laws in Indiana

This petition had 59 supporters

Twenty-five states and the District of Columbia have laws legalizing marijuana for medical and/or recreational use, and in November this year, eight more states will vote on reforming laws for medical and recreational marijuana use. In 2016, Indiana lawmakers have introduced two bills that addressed medical marijuana use, but both bills have died. As our nation continues to better understand marijuana and criticize it’s spot on Schedule 1 of the Controlled Substances Act, Indiana continues to sit on the sideline.

It is time for Indiana to embrace change and consider the many ways that marijuana reform could help ease the pain of those who are sick, create jobs for our people, help prevent the overcrowding of jails and allow police to focus on other important issues. Discussion is key, here, as it can help educate those who share different views on the legalization of marijuana. New laws cannot be passed without compromise, and compromises can't be made without discussion.
