We've gone long enough with archaic laws about cannabis use and growing in Madison. We're too much of a progressive community to continue to allow our young adults to be fined and locked up for possession for a drug that's considerably more than alcohol and cigarettes. Even if we're far away from full legalization of the state, Madison Police should not be allowed to detain, ticket or confiscate any cannabis or cannabis product individuals possess or grow cannabis. police should not be able to interfere with a grow consisting of 6 or less plants, mass grows and farming should be regulated by the state. Cannabis should be regulated like alcohol, if not having both regulated more strictly of sale to underage (21) patrons. Focus on the real criminals and more dangerous drugs, release all persons convicted under possession or use of cannabis, and allow the community to progress to a more modern society. 

I personally enjoy cannabis for pain relief and anxiety from my type one diabetes and gender dysphoria. I want to be able to grow my own cannabis without worrying about law enforcement and paying large amounts on the black market for my medicine. While Madison is considerably more lax about cannabis than some places, I push for complete decriminalization. 

I couldn't do this justice without mentioning the racial bias and the apparent discrimination our police have against minorities using cannabis and the lock up rates of young people having their lives ruined by smoking weed. All these people should be freed and all records expunged of charges related to cannabis possession or micro growing. Please consider supporting this important issue in our community and help improve the city I love for the better
