Joseph is a former employee of the year at Walmart who suffered from an inoperable brain tumor. He was fired for failing a routine drug test for using his doctor recommended medical cannabis in the evenings to treat his dire symptoms. How can a Michigan court humanely say, and claim to support justice when it supports the firing of a cancer patient on the basis of using the only effective available treatment to alleviate pain and suffering. This is not humane, this is not just. This is a blatant demonstration of the power of corporations like Walmart to manipulate the justice system. The people should not stand for this manipulation. We must take a stand to protect the integrity of our justice system and our own humanity. This is a precedent setting case and needs to be addressed so that many others do not suffer the same fate as Joseph, who is know unemployed and struggling to support his wife and children. Please sign this petition so that we may show the courts and corporations everywhere the people will not stand for this injustice and dehumanization!!!  Please also join us in a boycott of Walmart for this and their many other destructive practices!!!

      "What Cancer Cannot Do"

      Cancer is so limited...

      It cannot cripple love

      It cannot shatter hope

      It cannot corrode faith

      It cannot destroy peace

      It cannot kill friendship

      It cannot suppress memories

      It cannot silence courage

      It cannot invade the soul

      It cannot steal eternal life

      It cannot conquer the spirit"

      I have had one of the worst experiences in my life watching my Moter-in-Law suffer horribly from cancer, that just kept on spreading. She was a religious, kind hearted, law abiding citizen. Because her beliefs & honesty were held in such high regards to her, she wouldn't even consider using cannabis, even though she knew the benefits & relief it could bring her. Therefore, my way of thinking, the unjust laws against cannabis only made a wonderful Woman, Mother, & Grandmother had to suffer more than she had to because of a ridiculous law. I honestly think the man hours & high cost of helicopters searching for growing herbs should be put into a much more needed search.....Man-Made Drugs! They are the ones getting our kids and adults into an early grave. Maybe some of the resources should be rearranged to find the truly dangerous "drugs", including alcohol. If the people in the position to change the laws against cannabis would do more research, then maybe, just maybe the better understanding of the benefits of this herb would have a change of heart & change that vote of "NO" to a vote of "YES".
