CONCLUSION: "There is now clear evidence that cannabinoids(cannabis/marijuana) are useful in the treatment of various medical conditions." *
We, the people of North Carolina and the United States, hold that marijuana is both safe and effective medically. We hold that access to medical marijuana is a fundemental right protected under the US Constitution. We hold the state of North Carolina is in violation of the civil rights of its citizens for the following causes; 1. violation of civil rights whereas citizens are forced into self harm. 2. violation of civil rights through the disclusion of public processes. 3. violation of the fundemental right to LIFE.
We hold that the state of North Carolina is in mass violation of the US Constituion by the imprisoning thousands of non-violent medical marijuana users. Lastly, we hold we will not be subjugated, deterred, or defeated.
Please sign this petition and help us to restore our dignities, thank you.
By signing this petition you are also asking the state and local prosecutors involved in my case to ALLOW ME A TRIAL, or leave me alone and dismiss ALL charges.
- North Carolina Governor
I just signed the following petition addressed to: North Carolina house, senate and governors office.
legalize the medicinal use of marijuana or cannabis
The movement towards freedom of persecution for medical marijuana or cannabis users is growing across the state. Bills are already in place in our State house for legalization of Medical Marijuana usage. They are waiting for the people of good conscience from the state of North Carolina to bouy them into law. Your vote counts. Every signature on every petition will allow our elected bodies to pass what is already known to be common sense, and just, legislation; Legitamite use of Marijuana for medical purposes, to be able to grow and posses, legally, a drug deemed effective for the use of many medical conditions. Both by the most prestigeous associations of medical science, including doctors working for the United States government itself, as well as 16 states and the District of Columbia have already stamped their professional and legislative perspectives on this matter. I hold in my heart that North Carolina is the greatest state in the nation and does not deserve to be listed amoung those states still crippled by ignorance. If you know someone who uses marijuana medically, sign this petition for them, if you use it for medical purposes yourself, sign it for yourself, sign it for those that would otherwise benefit from it's availability. Many people who use marijuana are already suffering from mental dibilities, treatment of marijuana offers trifle side effects in comparison with MOST of the medications they may be otherwise prescribed. Continuing to add persecution to those sufferings is unjust, sign it for them. Law makers fear losing election all too often more then doing what is correct..Ignoring an issue brought before it, to wait for better days. Please sign this petition to force this issue to stay in the forefront of their minds until legislation is passed. Living in a shadow or being looked upon as something less then a law abiding citizen is no longer acceptable. If you are an otherwise honorable person, who uses Marijuana or Cannabis medically, speak out about this issue. Post this petition on your blogs or pages, start a discussion within your own family, or make a petition of your own. If you are tired of being looked at as a criminal for using a medicine with side effects on par with aspirin, do something about it.
