Ask Donald Trump to Support State Cannabis Laws

This petition had 912 supporters

In January, Donald Trump will become the 45th President of the United States. His presidency will begin as cannabis legalization takes effect in four additional states, and medical cannabis takes effect in several others. Although Trump has given no indication he will enforce federal cannabis laws in these states, he also hasn't made it clear that he won't, leaving many to wonder what his plan of action (or inaction) will truly be.

With this in mind, we are calling on President-elect Trump to respect state's rights and refuse to enforce federal cannabis policies in states that have legalized the plant. This includes the eight states that have legalized cannabis for all uses, and the roughly 30 states that have legalized it for medical purposes.

Two national polls released within the past month - a Gallup poll and an American Values Survey poll, both well respected - show support for legalizing cannabis to be at or above 60% among all U.S. adults. It's clear that voters are fed up with prohibition, and want a change. Enforcing federal cannabis laws would be blatantly ignoring their wishes, and given the harms of prohibition (criminal enrichment, wasted taxpayer dollars, overpopulated prisons, etc.), would be directly detrimental to our society.

Signing this petition will automatically send an e-mail directly to President-elect Trump asking him to support state's rights when it comes to cannabis policies.
