SHARING IS CARING

No Federal Schedule

Let’s end Cannabis Prohibition Now!

How can we end Federal Prohibition? 

Well, we’ve taken the first step here in Washington State by passing I-502 and starting the legalization process.  We’re at an in between spot right now.  A place where the Federal Ax looms over our burgeoning cannabis industry and leaves us unclear whether it will  fall and decapitate legalization or if it’ll just hang around and continue to see what happens before it acts.

Cannabis is a Federal Schedule 1 Narcotic.  What does this mean?

According to the US Department of Justice’s own website  :

                Schedule I Controlled Substances

Substances in this schedule have no currently accepted medical use in the United States, a lack of accepted safety for use under medical supervision, and a high                  potential for abuse.

Some examples of substances listed in Schedule I are: heroin, lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD), marijuana (cannabis), peyote, methaqualone, and 3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine (“Ecstasy”).

Yet at the same time, the US Government has taken out US Patent 6630507 which states

Abstract

Cannabinoids have been found to have antioxidant properties, unrelated to NMDA receptor antagonism. This new found property makes cannabinoids useful in the treatment and prophylaxis of wide variety of oxidation associated diseases, such as ischemic, age-related, inflammatory and autoimmune diseases. The cannabinoids are found to have particular application as neuroprotectants, for example in limiting neurological damage following ischemic insults, such as stroke and trauma, or in the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and HIV dementia. Nonpsychoactive cannabinoids, such as cannabidoil, are particularly advantageous to use because they avoid toxicity that is encountered with psychoactive cannabinoids at high doses useful in the method of the present invention. A particular disclosed class of cannabinoids useful as neuroprotective antioxidants is formula (I) wherein the R group is independently selected from the group consisting of H, CH3, and COCH3. ##STR1##

 

So you can see our Government has no problem turning a blind eye to untruths.  Even ones you can easily point out to them and everyone else.   

But what are we to do about it?  What power do we have?

We have the power of our vote! 

Let’s end Federal Cannabis Prohibition and the Scheduling of Cannabis here in the USA.

We’ve created the below two informational tabs:  

Visit the House of Representatives website and find your Representative. 

Visit Congress.gov and do the same thing. 

Follow them on Twitter & Facebook.

Find their contact information and send them an email, Twitter & Facebook them.

Some even list phone numbers and you can leave very detailed messages.

Let them know that by their own admission Cannabis has medicinal values and that you’d like the Federal Scheduling of Cannabis to be lifted.

Let them know that you’d like them to respect the citizens of Washington & Colorado’s vote to legalize cannabis and formally declare that they will allow the systems to be implemented without Federal interference.

Let them know that you’re tired of hearing about Federal letters being sent to medicinal cannabis providers.

It’s time to use our resources, our tax dollars, on things that benefit society and not against policies the citizens have over whelmingly voted in.

Make sure they understand that you won’t vote for them again and that you’ll encourage everyone you can to follow suit unless they start honestly dealing with cannabis as an issue.

We can do this!  We have started to create real legalization but we won’t really have it till we end the Federal Scheduling of Cannabis. 

Join us and let’s tilt the scales of justice in cannabis’s direction.

Be polite, engage in conversation, share your knowledge with everyone around you, get others involved, and remember to write your Representative frequently and ask them what they are doing about correcting the Federal Scheduling of Cannabis.
