Lance Armstrong began his athletic career as a triathlete winning his first race at the age of 13. At 16, Lance Armstrong became a professional triathlete and became national sprint-course triathlon champion in 1989 and 1990 at 18 and 19, respectively.
In 1993 Armstrong focused his attention on cycling and became a decorated cyclist before being diagnosed with stage 3 testicular cancer at the age of 25. The cancer spread to his lungs, abdomen and brain. He had a 20% chance of living. He had surgery removing his diseased testicle and began chemotherapy. He also had brain surgery to remove the tumors on his brain.
After successfully defeating cancer Armstrong went on to win a record 7 consecutive Tour De France titles. With this unrivaled success he mainstreamed cycling in the United States, and used his celebrity and prestige to raise hundreds of millions of dollars for Livestrong and touching an unmeasurable amount of lives in the process.
After retiring from cycling he returned to triathlon in February, 2012 at Ironman 70.3 Panama finishing 2nd overall. He also entered half-Ironman distance races in Texas (7th) and St. Croix (3rd) before breaking through with victories at Ironman 70.3 Florida and Ironman 70.3 Hawaii setting a course record.
In recent weeks his Tour De France titles have been stripped, and he has been banned from cycling and all other sports governed by the US Anti-Doping Agency based on insurmountable evidence that he used performance enhancing drugs during his cycling career. It is yet to be seen whether the titles will go to the second place finishers of those years. Note that the 2nd and 3rd place finishers of all 7 years that Armstrong won his titles have at one point in their careers been suspended for the use of performance enhancing drugs.
Would you support the legalisation of Marijuana?
I'm looking to get feedback from people if they support the legalisation of Marijuana.
Marijuana. A widely used drug, and something that is misconstrued and lied about to the nation's youth everyday. In health classes all over America, lies are spread about weed. "It's addicting." is a common one. Or "It will kill you." Or how about "It will ruin your life." That seems to be the main argument of many anti-drug agencies.
But the time has come. America needs to legalize marijuana immediately. It has been proven to be safer than alcohol and cigarettes. So, as the saying goes, legalize it!
It has been put off enough and I want it done! I want legalization of marijuana in Ontario.
Marijuana is an amazing plant, Literally everyone benefits from marijuana or the sale of marijuana in some way whether you realize it or not.
I would be more than happy to send anyone the information they need for me to persuade them to sign my petition!
30 seconds can make a big difference if everyone puts in that 30 seconds :)
Marijuana users are determined to stand up to the injustice of marijuana probation and accomplish legalization, no matter how long or what it takes to succeed. Despite the threat of arrests and a variety of other punishments and sanctions marijuana users have persisted in their support for legalization for over a generation.
They refuse to give up their long quest for justice because they believe in the fundamental values of Canadian society. Prohibition has failed to silence marijuana users despite its best attempts over the last generation. The issue of marijuana's legalization is a persistent issue that, like marijuana, will simply not go away.
Marijuana will be legalized because marijuana users will continue to fight for it until we succeed.
The only way to make this country a better place would be to legalize marijuana.

Lets face it the marijuana drug policy is not working in this country. If you click the related site will see the facts. I am almost astonished at how much the goverment lies if you compare it to any goverment site.
Also the Netherlands has a free drug law in which it is sold in "coffee shops" and they have less marijuana use per population than the U.S. yet the U.S. claim that Netherlands drug policy is a failure.
The complete legalization of up to 1 oz with no penalty. Also the cultivation of up to 5 plants for personal use. Illegal however to people under 18. And of course illegal to drive under the influence. Know the truth!
Also if from the Netherlands I would be interested in your insight so please post a comment.
