Petition Background (Preamble):

People have taken marijuana for centuries. The medical benefits have been well documented. The health risks which marijuana prohibitionists assert are minor in comparison to other health risks associated with excessive alcohol and tobacco usage.

We the undersigned petition that all State and Territory Governments legalise marijuana for medicinal purposes.
