Petition to U.S. House of Representatives, U.S. Senate, Chuck Grassley
Pass the CARERS Act and protect medical marijuana patients
My six-year-old daughter Morgan suffers from Dravet Syndrome, a rare form of epilepsy that causes frequent and dangerous seizures. We’ve tried everything to help her. She’s taken more than 10 different anti-epilepsy medications but at best, she's gone only four weeks without a seizure. Based on our own research, advice from our doctors, and what we’ve heard from families living in other states, we would like Morgan to try cannabidiol oil -- a form of medical marijuana. For children with similar illnesses in other parts of the country, the results using medical marijuana have been life changing. Medical marijuana comes in many different preparations, and is prescribed accordingly to treat specific conditions. The treatment Morgan needs would not make her "high", and she wouldn't smoke it. It would come in a bottle just like her other medications, but with fewer side effects. The medications that Morgan has tried have devastating side effects. They gave her kidney stones, ulcerative colitis, and compromise her respiratory system. She should be able to try this much safer option. But medical marijuana is still illegal at the federal level. It’s currently a Schedule 1 drug, which means the federal government considers it just as dangerous as heroin and says there is no medicinal value. This means our family would have to move to a different state to get it, or obtain it illegally and risk arrest. I have decided that neither of those choices are good enough for my family. That’s why I’m supporting the Compassionate Access, Research Expansion and Respect States (CARERS) Act -- a bipartisan bill that will let states legalize medical marijuana without federal interference. It will also expand research into the health benefits of marijuana and allow Veterans Affairs doctors to recommend marijuana to ailing veterans. The CARERS Act would remove also CBD from scheduling under the Controlled Substances Act, affirming to the world that marijuana does have medical benefits. This bill will change the lives of so many sick and suffering people, like my daughter, around the country. Please sign my petition asking Congress to pass the CARERS Act.

Federally legalize medical marijuana use
Currently the United States is going through an opioid pandemic. Pain killers are being abused, thus leading to heavier drug use, or death. Medical marijuana has been proven to be a healthier alternative to harmful chemicals. I myself am a federal employee , that suffered 2 strokes at the age of 30, Since I am a federal employee I am forced to take opioids, and harmful anti-seizure medications even though my state allows medical marijuana use.

Petition to Governor Tony Evers
Fully Legalize Cannabis in Wisconsin
The Problem:Over 1 million Wisconsin voters said “yes” to the legalization of cannabis during last fall’s election. Yet cannabis remains illegal with the impact of marijuana stops, arrests and prosecutions falling disproportionately on people of color. It is critical that Governor Tony Evers supports criminal justice reform and FULLY legalize cannabis and include FULL legalization in his 2019-21 budget proposal. There are many reasons to support the FULL cannabis legalization including its medical value as an alternative to opiods; its economic potential for Wisconsin farmers and business; and the fact that Illinois, Michigan, Minnesota and Canada already have, or will be soon, fully legalizing cannabis. But the most crucial aspect of FULL legalization is that it ends unjust police stops, arrests and prosecutions for cannabis. Regulated cannabis would put an end to life-altering interactions with the criminal justice system that harm people’s lives, while wasting taxpayer dollars in the process. Why We Need Your Help:The historic opportunity to FULLY legalize cannabis is now on the horizon in Wisconsin. After voters turned out in record numbers across the state to vote in support of cannabis, Governor Tony Evers declared his support for FULL legalization. He said he will include some form of legalization in his budget proposal. The Ask...Let's let Governor Evers know that we support FULL legalization by signing this petition. While Governor Evers alone cannot legalize cannabis alone, inclusion of the policy in his 2019-21 budget proposal will carry great weight. Please sign this petition and let's send a message urging him to lead Wisconsin forward on this important issue!
Petition to Christina Schoenfeldt
Legalize Recreational Marijuana in Arkansas
I have watched so many people suffer from Cancer, Chemo & Radiation Such as my maternal grandfather, my Aunt, numerous friends and myself. These people were/are physically unable to hold down any food at all on a regular basis while undergoing Chemo treatments. Then there are seizures equally suffered by children and adults on a daily basis. There has been tremendous success in slowing the seizures down to very few or none at all. ADD, ADHD, Depression, Anxiety, Glaucoma, AIDS, ALS, Crohns Disease, Parkinson’s Disease, Asthma, Nausea, Vomiting, Migraines, I myself, suffer from Migraines about 5 days a week on a regular basis, going on 6 years now. I also suffer from chronic pain due to 5 automobile accidents I was in (none were my fault,) Scoliosis, knee, extreme hip joint pain, ankle and my left foot which was fractured, all from a wreck. Then there is my constant Nausea and or Vomiting which I endure usually at least 3 times a week, for the past 6 years. I used to be on anti-Nausea meds but my doctor took me off of them and now I am back to suffering from it all like before the meds. Now for some reason there are No Diagnosis’s written down in any of my medical records, and you have to have the diagnosis to apply for the $200.00 Dr. appointment to get the referral, then send the state another $50.00 for your medicinal card. There are thousands of citizens in this state that could benefit from the use of Marijuana , whether it be THC or CBD, and because of this We the citizens of the state of Arkansas voted for medicinal Marijuana over 2 years ago and here we sit no closer to the benefits we could have from medical Marijuana than the day we voted it in. I have a few of the limited ailments that are allowed to receive Medical Marijuana and I don’t think this is right. Since it has taken Arkansas so long to do anything at all about growers, licenses, and dispensaries, I feel it is only right to start a petition to legalize Recreational Marijuana in Arkansas at this time. Then All the citizens that do not have the limited ailments on Arkansas’ must have list in order to receive a medical card to buy and use, this petition would allow all adults the right to purchase without having to spend the $200.00 dr fee, or go through any of the other issues that keep us from being able to take for healing and medicinal reasons. Not only is this good for our citizens it’s is very good for our economy. The other states with Recreational Marijuana have billions of dollars in revenue annually and of course it is taxed. It also has approximately 200,000 people currently employed through the Cannabis industry, also good for our economy. Arkansas is also way up there for opioid use and overdoses as well as deaths. Get rid of the opioids and let’s use a natural growing plant that was here on earth growing when we all got here. Many Indian tribes are allowed to have Cannabis on their reservations. So let’s all pull together for the greater cause of alleviating pain, nausea, seizures, Parkinson’s disease to name only a few. Please follow me in bringing this petition to the attention of any and all that suffer from any of the above and Cancer, Glaucoma, ADD, ADHD, Etc... Share this with your friends, family, doctors, co-workers, neighbors and anyone else that can benefit from its use. This plant was growing here on Earth when we were all born into this world so why can’t it be used as we would any other plant such as aloe or spices like Ginger. As long as it is benefiting those who need it and being used responsibly Arkansas should legalize it as many other states have already done including California, Washington D.C., Washington state and Colorado to name only a few. Stand with me a mother of three adult children and six grandchildren and sign this petition to get Recreational Marijuana legal in the state of Arkansas.
Petition to Tony Evers
Let us promote the legalization of marijuana in Wisconsin
Have you ever had that feeling that you were sitting back and watching something wrong take place? Well, I feel that way now, and I will no longer sit back and let this continue to happen to us. We The People, have the right to take advantage of all the health and recreational benefits of the Cannabaceae plant family. As a matter of fact, us Wisconsinites have come into interaction with this species quite a bit. This species also yields humulus. Better known as hops that are used in the process of brewing beer. I understand we are gradually moving forward in the hemp department, however, according to the November 6, 2018 referendum, voters would like to see more. The benefits of using cannabis outweighs the side effects greatly. Chronic Pain, post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, appetite loss, and anxiety are just the tip of the iceberg of what can be helped with the proper use of marijuana. According to the American Addiction Centers, 1,700 fewer prescription or opioid related deaths have been reported just in 2010 alone in the states that were legal. In 2015, there happened to be 5,174 alcohol related car accidents, with 190 being fatal. Cigarettes claim the lives of 480,000 people in the United States a year. The point I am making is, all of these harsh, poisonous substances are ready to be served to us at any given time. Yet, the less lethal is illegal? Here in Wisconsin, our motto is "Forward." So, let us move forward with our affairs and accumulate a sense of security and well being for our state. Not only is it noted marijuana has great attributes medically/ recreationally, it would also enhance our economy tremendously if taxed properly. In the state of Colorado as of 2015, 18,000 full time jobs were created and $2.4 billion was generated, just to throw numbers out there. Wisconsin could most certainly use that kind of money. We could improve our schools, roads, and practice giving back to the community. Imagine all the jobs it would create! The only reason why I have not packed all my things and headed for a legal state is simply because I love Wisconsin and would love to see us actually move forward. Thank you for your time.

Petition to Florida Governor
Legalize Recreational Marijuana in Florida.
As 2019 is just getting started and the 2010s are coming to a close we've seen tremendous strides in the fight for marijuana legalization. In 1973 Oregon made a huge leap forward by decriminalizing the plant, It wouldn't be until 2012 where Colorado and Washington pushed it even further by legalizing it for recreational use. Many states followed suit thereafter and are continuing to push us closer to nation-wide and federal legalization. Florida itself has followed these states in the legalization of the plant and the strive forward is coming faster than we could have hoped for. The goal of this petition is to show Gov. Ron DeSantis and his administration what the people of Florida think about recreational marijuana. To push implementation of the proper laws, and to do the inevitable. I propose we put this to a vote to guarantee and hear out the will of the people of Florida. The way to Federal Legalization is through the states and people fighting for what they believe in. As one body of people, as citizens, and as grown adults.
