Barry LeBeau started this petition to President Obama, Attorney General Holder, & DEA

Hello, I am a chronic pain patient who's state has passed Medical Marijuana Laws but can't implement them because federal interference in States Rights that won't allow the laws to be implemented to establish legal dispensing, distribution, & writing of prescriptions by primary care doctors based upon justified medical conditions. I feel that a majority of Americans would legalize marijuana for patients who meet these requirements as many states such as California, Colorado & others have already done so. We need to reschedule Cannabis as a Class II as the Governors of RI & Washington State have again petitioned the DEA to do so. Denying the Right to Medical Treatment as seen fit by our Primary Care Physicians should not & must not be interfered by the Federal Government when States have clearly petitioned their governments to approve Medical Marijuana for patients who suffer from these chronic health conditions. Our laws are so antiquated an allow the Federal Government to regulate & tax both Alcohol & Tobacco which are far worse Drugs & cause more deleterious health problems considerably more than any harm from any equal amount of Cannabis that could be consumed. It's time to stand up for our rights given to us by the US Constitution & the Declaration of Independence that we have the Unalienable Right To "Life, Liberty, & the Pursuit of Happiness" through peaceful petition to our Government. In 2009 President Obama & Attorney General Holder falsely stated they would "RESPECT" states medical marijuana laws. On October 7th, US Attorneys announced plans to aggressively criminally prosecute providers & sent letters from the DOJ, Treasury Depts: IRS to place levies of heavy punitive tax penalties on dispensaries , that ATF sent letters to gun dealers not to serve medical marijuana patients! Is this Right that it's OK to legally buy alcohol & guns; but that marijuana patients are more likely than drunk alcoholics to shoot somebody? Give me a Break! I implore you to ask yourself that if your father,mother,son or daughter,brother,sister,niece or nephew, or close friend needed this you would deny their right to give them a treatment that helps more than any pharmaceuticals they could take? Just think of the millions of people that have Cancer, AIDS, Chronic Pain, MS & many other diseases are suffering because of being denied the treatment that helps the most. It's time to stop the Major Pharmaceutical Companies who sell us Billions of Dollars of Drugs much more expensive to produce & market, & they lobby your lawmakers to stop a natural herb that has far more beneficial attributes than any drug they can produce. Regulate it, Tax it, limit it's use, but don't say it has no medical uses. You cannot deny Reality as it exists. Yes, there are abuses with every drug but to deny those who benefit by it does not justify it's continued persecution by our justice system & rule of law & government. We need to Rise Up & Be Counted or Forever Hold Our Peace. Let the Government Rule our entire lives,the freedom of what we can say & do. It's Time for the People to Stand Up For Our Rights guaranteed by our founding fathers in the above Documents that started Our Great Democracy
