I just signed a petition to legalize marijuana at the official White House petition site https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/treat-marijuana-alcohol-throughout-us-enacting-hr-2306-ending-federal-marijuana-prohibition-act-2011/KVdSpGP3?utm_source=wh.gov&utm_medium=shorturl&utm_campaign=shorturl
The petition is in reference to the HR 2306 bill introduced by Barney Frank; Ending Federal Marijuana Prohibition Act of 2011. When I signed the petition, it had 3,295 signatures and needs 21,705 more signatures to reach the minimum goal of 25,000 in 30 days by December 18th. Apparently anyone can start a petition on any subject as many have recently done on petitions to have their home states to secede from the United States. There are 249 petitions at the time of this post on different subjects. Some of the petitions are serious and some not so serious such as; a petition to require all states to allow concealed carry permits for all law-abiding U.S citizens, a petition to bring back incandescent light bulbs and a petition to transfer funds from the war on drugs to be used for research and developement of the genetic engineering of domestic cat girls.
While I do not support the genetic engineering of cat girls, it would be nice if all states honored the 2nd amendment of our Constitution. It would also be nice to get the Federal Government out of the business of trying to ruin the lives of marijuana users through prosecution and persecution. Please sign the petition and call or write to your elected officials and let them know how you feel. They can be reached at.
