Dear Mr. President,

There are tens of thousands of United States Citizens who have experienced relief from the use of medical marijuana. As Citizens, we strongly urge you to change the laws that have been confining and socially ostracizing to our honest, hardworking, ailing patients that experience comfort from this medicinal plant.

Cannabis and its medicinal properties were outlawed by the Congress of the United States in 1937; however, "The US government has confirmed that cannabis can kill cancer cells after the drug did so in tests on mice and rats, according to the National Cancer Institute" says Nick Allen (Washington, 24 Aug 2015). Breaking News from Health & Fitness states that US Gov't Admits Cannabis Cures Cancer (September 27, 2018). The US National Cancer Institute quietly updated their website in January, admitting that cannabis and cannabinoids kill cancer without damaging the body’s normal cells. This speaks of the Government’s knowledge of the medicinal properties that cannabis has.

The US Controlled Substance Act of 1970 lists marijuana as a Schedule 1 Drug. Schedule 1 drugs are identified as having no medicinal properties. This is in direct conflict with the Aug 24, 2015 test findings and the US National Cancer Institute admission that show cannabis can kill cancer cells.
The US Department of Health and Human Services owns at least one patent on cannabis, aka marijuana. The patented strain describes its therapeutic potential cannabinol chemical compounds.

Please, Mr. President, stop this discord by our government and declassify cannabis to an appropriate category. The medicinal properties in this vegetable herb provide relief and comfort to thousands of suffering human beings.
We all thank you for ending this propaganda and cruelty to Americans!

God Bless,
Stormy Ray and my Fellow American Citizens
