Marijuana: A Civil Rights Law
This petition had 94 supporters
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) became law in 1990.( Amended in 2008) The ADA is a civil rights law that prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities in all areas of public life, including jobs, school, transportation, and all public and private places that are open to the general public.
According to the ADA, medical marijuana cannot be discriminated from State to State, anymore than Insulin, Morphine, Adderall, or any other prescribed medicine by a medical doctor. A disabled individual with medical needs should not be arrested for their prescribed medication and treatment from State to State.
The fact is when medical marijuana became legal in any State, within the United States; it then became a Civil Rights Law, under the ADA. Any State, within the United States that is currently refusing to accept prescribed medical marijuana is guilty of discrimination of a disabled patient’s medication and treatment needs.
