Medical Cannabis has been proven to minimize the risk of cancer and cure illness such as multiple sclerosis, glaucoma, relieves pain for those people who undergo therapy such as chemotherapy and the likes. People here in our country need to know more about cannabis. They were blinded from the very beginning about the real facts about Cannabis. I think it is the time that we make some changes about the law and let us be more open about the positive effects of the plant. There are a lot of studies and researches that give us facts on Cannabis is all about. In some countries this has been legalized and in some states in the U.S. as well. I think Philippines needs to check the data again and consider legalizing the plant and if not at least give the people choices if they are going to take pharmaceutical drug (chemical) or Cannabis (natural) like what they are doing in CA. People in CA who choose to use Medical Cannabis is given a card that they can use so that they will not be included in the prohibition of the said plant. I know it will be hard but in the long run I know this will bring good to our country and our people.
Poverty can end as well, world hunger could end. A large variety of food products can be generated from hemp. The seeds contain one of the highest sources of protein in nature; they have two essential fatty acids that clean your body of cholesterol. These essential fatty acids are not found anywhere else in nature! Consuming pot seeds are the best thing you could do for your body. Eat uncooked hemp seeds. You can live healthy for the rest of your life eating nothing but hemp seeds.
These are just few facts about Cannabis, I hope that the people who have read this petition will do research on their own and I do hope you will see the light. Let us make this change, even not for us, think of this as an investment for our future generation. We don't want our siblings to undergo the same mistake. Let us think of the people who are fighting for their lives and their last option is Cannabis but they can't have it, now even they do, they have a big chance of ending in jail for the rest of their lives. Please have courage to fight for what we know is right. People are dying because of not knowing, not knowing the cure to their illness, not knowing where to get Cannabis, not knowing their right to have access to it. One signature can make a big difference.
