Please sign this petition. The most vulnerable people in our society are at risk of losing their "voice" - our older adults like grandpas and nanas, people who may no longer be able to think or communicate as clearly as they used to - do you know anybody who has a diagnosis of Alzheimer's, who has had a stroke or a brain injury? - people of all ages who were born with a learning difficulty or have a physical disability.
With all the radical cuts to services for vulnerable adults and children, it is now more important than ever that they have access to good advocacy to help them speak up for themselves.
The new service outline is a financial cut of over 50% to current advocacy provision within county.
At a time when Cumbria County Council is undertaking an unprecedented upheaval of its social care system, services such as advocacy are more important than ever in ensuring that the rights of some of the most vulnerable people using Council services are protected, and that in the middle of changes to social care provision and social care providers, that people do not fall through gaps.
We would expect that County Council continues its remit to protecting the most vulnerable users of its services.
Please help by signing this petition. Thank you.
We, the undersigned, call on the Cyprus Government to eliminate Animal Abuse and Cruelty. We also call on the Government to create laws to support Animal Rights in our Country. Animal Police is one of our major demands.
Εμείς, οι υπογεγραμμένοι, καλούμε την Κυπριακή Κυβέρνηση να αποβάλει την κακομεταχείρηση των ζώων από τη χώρα μας. Επίσης, καλούμε την Κυβέρνηση να πάρει δραστικά μέτρα και να δημιουργίσει νόμους εναντίον όσων δεν σέβονται τα Δικαιώματα των Ζώων. Η δημιουργία Αστυνομίας Ζώων είναι μια από τις κύριες απαιτήσεις μας.
Bullying is one of the greatest dangers children in Australia face.
AT LEAST ONE IN FOUR CHILDREN ARE BULLIED AT SCHOOL
In our culture, bullying is stigmatized so that Children often feel ashamed to seek help or even tell anyone they are being bullied, for fear of being a burden on families and communities.
As a result the issue goes unrecognized.
Children's voices are not loud enough to demand their own basic rights. Which include:
The right to be free from physical or mental harm, and to receive an education which enables them to reach their potential, and prepares them for life in a free society (from the UN Charter).
BULLYING RUINS LIVES. It has been the cause of countless suicides. Shown in the photo above, Sheniz Erkan is a girl who died as a result of cyber-bullying in January this year.
Bullying ruins mental health.
Children who are bullied are three times more likely to develop depressive symptoms and NINE TIMES MORE LIKELY TO HAVE THOUGHTS OF SUICIDE.
Victims of bullying are more likely to develop psychotic symptoms in early adolescence and young people who bully others are four times more likely to have a criminal record by the age of 30.
Bullying has devastating affects on the welfare of individuals. It inhibits their developing identity and contribution to society.
Please help raise awareness of this issue, and spread the word through facebook, email or any means you can.
PLEASE SUPPORT INDIGENOUS PEOPLE'S RIGHT TO EQUITABLE SUPPORT TO LIVE ON THEIR HOMELANDS AND PASS ON THEIR LANGUAGES.
THE NORTHER TERRITORY HOMELANDS:
The shining light of indigenous opportunity is the 500 homelands across the NT. These homelands are the key to the inter-generational transmission of the languages and culture of the first Australians and unique to this continent.
I am 14 years old and I am very interested in politics, more than most kids my age. I would love to get involved in the political process and many other teenagers, younger and older than myself, want to also, but there is something stopping us, the age requirement.
Teens can make wise decisions despite the stereotype that we magically become mature at the age of 18. Teens can make a big difference and our opinions aren't random. I would much like to see the voting age requirement decreased to the age of 17, this does not mean that we are legal adults.
Teens could be required to take a class when they reach this age of 17 in order to educate themselves on the voting process and how to determine who they want to vote for, not what pop culture is endorsing.
This petition is for the parents who play an active and vital role in their child or children’s lives. Unfortunately, for unmarried parents, the laws currently in place in Arkansas and states like it presumably assign one parent to be a “custodial parent” and the other as a “noncustodial parent”, without making a reasonable assessment to determining whether this is the best decision to make in regards to the child or children.
Therefore, this injustice causes an inequality for parents who are present in their child or children’s live by way of multiple levels of support. The laws possibly do this because traditionally one parent is the breadwinner while the other raises the child or children, but times change, and with the change of times comes a need for change of laws. Not all laws from yesteryear are applicable to today and the future, and that is why this petition urges lawmakers to revise statues such as “Arkansas Code of 1987 Title 9: Family Law (Subtitle 2: Domestic Relations).” to reflect the 21st century. If both parents play an equal role, then both parents should have equal parenting rights protected by the law, which leads this discussion to the concept of shared parenting.
Shared parenting refers to a collective agreement in child custody in which the care of the children is equal or substantially shared between the biological parents. More and more parents today are moving away from the traditional custody agreements that consist of a “custodial parent” and “noncustodial parent”. Instead, they are opting for shared parenting. In a shared (or joint) parenting agreement, both parents have almost equal physical custodial time with their children. Moreover, both parents are responsible for making the important decisions in their child's life. Shared parenting is a valiant attempt by both parents to be involved in their child's life for the benefit of the child. Shared parenting heavily involves both parents and does not mean that one parent has the kids almost all of the time with occasional visits to the other parent. This type of parenting is one of the best ways for unmarried parents to work together in the best interest of their child or children, especially when both parents are truly active in their child or children’s lives. Having both parents in a child’s life as true equals is in the best interest of the child. Out with the “Custodial/Noncustodial” and in with “Equal, Fair, and Balanced Parenting”. Shared parenting is more effective than ¾ parenting from one parent and ¼ parenting from the other and vice-versa. Of course, there are exceptions to the rule when one parent is inactive or significantly less active in a child’s life.
Shared parenting is great if both parents do it! Although, there has been a dark past of have the experience of one parent not being in their lives as much as they should or at times not being in their lives period. Those individuals most definitely do not need or deserve same rights as a true parent who is there day in and day out and actively present in their child’s life. Individuals who are not mature enough to be responsible parents make it difficult for those who are. This cause some of them fight back through use of the court system, but can end up being futile because the burden of proving that the other parent is “unfit” is left up to them to substantiate although the point of “fit” or “unfit” is not necessarily an issue. A hardworking parent who has a major part in their child’s life should not have to resort to such madness only to possibly secure their rights as a parent.
The law should be in the best interest of the child, and having both parents in a child’s life as true equals when both play pivotal roles in the child’s life is in the best interest of the child.
The Honorable Justice Gomery of Canada stated: "Hatred is not an emotion that comes naturally to a child. It has to be taught. A parent who would teach a child to hate the other parent represents a grave and persistent danger to the mental and emotional health of that child."

The Food and Drug Administration is responsible for ensuring products are safe for human consumption before being placed on the market. Thus, the FDA passed the “Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act” to ensure products, such as cosmetics are safe before they are released to the public.
Although this legislation sounds reasonable and reassuring, it has encouraged all companies to test their products on animals in order to have them approved and sold. Companies are using animal testing across the country, and thousands of animals die every year due to inhumane treatment and infections. Animals are abused, cut, tortured, and intentionally infected with diseases and bred to have genetic deformities. This is a cruel and ineffective way for companies to test the toxicity and safety of their products.
How ineffective is animal testing? The FDA reports that 92% of products that pass the animal testing phases FAIL in human clinical trials, and therefore cannot be released to the public. Thus, animals are being abused, tortured, and ultimately killed for no scientific or monetary benefit at all. We are an intelligent, developed society and animal testing is clearly not our only option. Some companies have opted to use donated skin cells and body parts of deceased donors. There are alternatives.
Therefore, I am calling on the FDA to change its legislation regarding regulations on the testing of products to prohibit the use of animals.
A retired member of the New York City Police Department who helped victims out of the World Trade Center on 9-11 is now at war with his Coral Springs homeowners' association over a commemorative flag.
Richard Wentz has been given 10 days to take down his flag down or face fines and possibly legal action.
"That flag means the world to me. Other than my children, that flag means the world to me," said Wentz.
Wentz lives in the Fairways at Heron Bay. The commemorative flag lists the names of everyone who died on Sept. 11, 2001, and is a replica of the ones placed in Battery Park during the 10th anniversary of the attacks.
"When I received the letter, I actually stood out in front of the house yelling in anger about it," Wentz said.
Wentz, a retired New York City police officer, said he ran into the Tower 1 and started pulling out people before the building collapsed. Wentz said he lost 43 friends and colleagues that day. The inside of his home is a shrine to the friends he lost.
Wentz now has cancer, he said, from breathing in all the particles during the cleanup of Ground Zero.
The letter from the Fairways at Heron Bay association said the flag detracts from the aesthetic harmony of the surrounding properties.He said he was confronted by Patricia Favata, president of the Board of Directors.
"She pushed the issue and said, 'Do we really need to get lawyers involved?' Her demeanor got very nasty," Wentz said.
No one was at Favata's home when Local 10 tried to talk to her.
Several neighbors said they are disgusted.
"He was involved in 9-11, and what he went through, he deserves to have the flag up there. I think it's an honor in our neighborhood to have the flag up," said resident Irene Skulsky.
"That flag doesn't bother me at all and shouldn't be taken down," added another neighbor.
Bill Sugarman, the president of Benchmark Property Management, which represents the association, said he received complaints.
The rules say there can only be one flag per home.
"The only flag that is allowed is an American flag. The problem is he is flying two flags, and until someone changes that there is a problem," Sugarman said.
Wentz refuses to take it down. "I will not take that flag down. That flag will remain up. I don't care how many fines they want to give me, how many notices they want to give me, I refuse to take that down," Wentz said.
The American Civil Liberties Union weighed in, saying that although homeowners associations are constitution-free zones, it has asked the state to limit what associations can do.
"This is an absurd, excessively literal interpretation of the rule. Why anybody would want to enforce that is beyond me," said Howard Simon with the ACLU.
I ask you to do your research, and see that the Mayor of Denver Michael Hancock and the Governor John Hickenlooper is trying to silence our amendment rights.
They needs to be recalled and thrown out of office. The OCCUPY DENVER movement is all I need to say.
I write to you in bitterness, anger and not a little disappointment in decision of McDonald's to restrict out menu choices before 10:30am!
Sometimes a Bacon and Egg McMuffin doesn’t quite cut it, sometimes it needs to be a Big Mac, with extra special sauce or several cheeseburgers.
Their decision to limit the menu before 10:30am to only breakfast is ruining my favorite and most important meal of the day; not to mention affecting their ability to compete with burger chains such as Hungry Jacks.
I would like to close this petition with a quote from their marketing website. "it's all about you." Well. It's not. And I'm not "lovin' it"
Transgender people are defined as people who feel they are a different gender than the sex they were born as. Job Corps is a job training facility where the students must live for 5 days a week day and night. At job corps the dormitories are separated by gender.
The current Job corps policy concerning transgender individuals is to place them in the dormitories that match their body parts.
This policy singles out transgender individuals and makes them a target for violence, bullying, and increases the likelihood of Suicide. It must be changed.
Schools in south africa are way too strict, they brutalize my culture and I have become a drop out because of south african schools. Okay if they really want I don't mind uniform, but when they start telkling you what to do with your body, piercings, tattoos and body modification is a part of my religion and they should allow that!
Stupid jobs don't employ people just because they have tattoos and piercings, even though the person is a genius, but they rather employ the egg head "normal looking one"! A police lady went to have a talk at our school, she was going on about drugs and sex, I went to ask her about homo sexual rights she told me "only if the person hits you" what a bloody stupid answer! and yet they call south africa a rainbow nation?? when racism is used verbally immediate action is taken place, some people cant get jobs, are mistreated because of their sexuality, piercings, tattoos, way of living.
I think everyone should have a right to live the way they want to!! And get the job if they do well at it not because of how they look! Society in south africa needs to open their disgusting closed little stingey shrivelled up minds and let people like me live, as long as you making my life a misery I'm gonna keep on bothering you.
The schools in south africa are disgusting and unclean, their discipline is like a military, and they are overly controlled and its distinguishing but what they learning is so unadvanced, and that they make afrikaans compulsory otherwise you cant study or have a job if you dont take afrikaans!
I'm not against afrikaans, I just dont wanna be forced to learn it after grade ten, and maths! Schools are too disciplinary and not enough learning, all they learning ias how to pray to some thing that doesn't exist, think a certain way and say "yes mam", and get overworked.
There's alot more to life than school and work, they should learn to be more flexible with homework and hours, we not machines, I know some people can work like machines but others cant! My poor friend who boards at DHS feels so brutalized and controlled he wants to kill himself or run away, he's just not coping! Im a drop out because south african schools suck!

There is no law or regulation for volunteers in New South Wales to refer to for assistance when they find that they are not being treated fairly by the management of a charity or not-for-profit organisation, or if they are not able to convince management to review its staff management practices. Some organisations have appropriate grievance policies that provide for complaints to be dealt with by independent mediation and arbitration, but such policies are not compulsory
Many volunteers find that they are bullied and their rights not protected. They have no right to seek help from the Privacy Commissioner, the Ombudsman, or the NSW Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC). The Department of Fair Trading has jurisdiction over many charities under the Associations Act, but can only act if there is a breach of the Act. The Department has no power to intervene if there are breaches of the Constitution, Code of Conduct or grievance policies. Some charities take advantage of this lack of government power, knowing that the Government cannot intervene. This causes many volunteer workers to end up as involuntary unemployed.
Volunteer work is still work. Workers that receive wages have options when they are unfairly treated by bosses, but volunteer workers can't do anything about their employers. We call on government to protect all those dedicated volunteer workers who give their time, energy, and money in service to others.

Most Americans are aware that animals are abused and neglected daily. It is a saddening fact. There are many groups and organizations who aim to stop this cruelty to animals, such as the ASPCA. However, domestic animal abuse is not the only problem. There is another terribly depressing issue, which completely violates animal rights. Worse yet, our American government is doing very close to nothing to stop it. This is exactly why we, as citizens of the United States of America, must speak up and act out, in order to call on our government to fix these problems.
Overpopulation is a huge problem. Dogs and cats are overpopulated as is, yet greedy breeders and puppy mill owners get more and more each and every day, for the sole purpose of money. Although some puppy mills and breeders might actually care, many are careless when it comes to the wellbeing of the animals; they only want their money. As a result of this greed, numbers of euthanized animals are skyrocketing each year.
There are statistics now that in recent years, seven to eight million dogs and cats wound up in animal shelters. Of that ridiculously high number, three to four million were euthanized by the shelter due to overpopulation or disease. This is an absolutely outrageous HALF of the dogs and cats who go to a "shelter" annually and end up dead. All because said breeders and puppy mill owners continue to make more.
Victorian Citizens are being forced to have Smartmeters installed without consultation or choice, in total disregard for what they believe are their human rights:
* to protection from hazards to their health and safety;
* to choose what is installed in their homes;
* to protection of their economic interests;
* to protection of their privacy;
* to access to adequate information to enable the right to making informed choices according to individual wishes and needs.
There are many concerns regarding smart meters including;
* health issues, including radiation;
* additional cost on households,
* the additional costs of time of use tariffs would impose on households;
* the accuracy of smart meters and the inability of households to check energy consumption levels;
* that installers of smart meters may not be appropriately qualified;
* individuals making it known that they did not want a smart meter installed at their property, or wanted their meter removed being totally disregarded
* problems with wiring, the possibility of fires developing and the loss of appliances following installation and consumers rights for replacement of their assets and appliances
* insurance concerns
* privacy of data collected and concerns over hacking of the system to name the main concerns
For more details on concerns and links to other sites go to stopsmartmeters.com.au and register your details to receive regular updates. More info also at www.stopsmartmeters.com.au
We look forward to your support and passing this to other Victorian Citizens concerned about their basic rights.
It is the civic duty of every citizen to hold their government accountable when it betrays the public trust and when it demonstrably fails to exercise its prescribed powers. When those elected behave as though they are above the law and abandon their Oath of Office to uphold and defend the Constitution, it remains for the people to demand justice for the wrongs committed against them.
The Indian Trail Town Council, and staff, have continued to engage in unethical, unlawful, immoral, and illegal actions.

The intent of this petition is to begin the process of restoring an open and transparent government to the Town of Indian Trail, North Carolina.

Students should have the right of an extra day off on weekends or no homework and tests due the next day. The weekends are suppressed to be breaks, but students keep receiving homework assignments on Friday preventing them from having a day off, and this petition is not geared towards a lecture on time management.
This should be made a law to protect established relationships between grandkids and all grandparents.
If something happens to the parents. The state wants grandparents to raise the child. Why do we not have rights to visit our grandchildren.
The UK Disabled Community needs to send a clear and unequivocal message in one unified voice to call on the Coalition Government to see us all as equal members of society and not treat us as a tool to steal our disability benefits and services to bail out the Country in this time of Financial Crisis.
Can we set a precedence to get 1 million signatures so that the Coalition Government will have no option but to take note of us and not just ignore or deflect our arguments & comments and to stop building this climate of hate against disabled people.
Please leave a question for your Local MP to pose to the Coalition Government, which we will add to the Petition when we deliver it to No.10.
We are declaring a moral separation from the current ruling administration and the policies it is currently enacting which is diminishing our liberties.
Moral Declaration simply means:
- Declaring our willingness and our ability to no longer support the current administrations decisions.
- Asserting our stance under ‘Redress of Grievances’.
- Affirming that in good faith and trust-
- We are done giving them moral support!
• We are presenting the new Moral Declaration of Independence with grievances in accordance with the United States Constitution and current U.S. Code of Law.
• We openly recognize that we have shared the intent and the spirit of the original Declaration of Independence.
• The original document was a declaration of war; however, at this time that is not the direction that America can withstand.
• Its strength and spirit is as viable today as when first written. (We intentionally utilized much of the original writings.)
• This document, as a petition with signatures will be taken to and registered in Washington D.C.
The cornerstone of our constitutional Republic has been the Declaration of Independence. The men who founded this great nation knew that those who rule must be of the character that recognizes that we will all stand before the God of heaven and be held accountable. These founders also knew that the ruling class often forgets this fact. We have been given the right to reset to the original intent of this founding document.
Now is the time… for all patriotic citizens to stand up and be counted.
“Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord” (Psalm 33:12).
This petition is to request sending a UN neutral committee to Bahrain, and we refuse the committee that is appointed by the king of Bahrain as we consider him as a part of the problem and we believe that him and his family are responsible of the violations of human rights.

This bill never became law. This bill was proposed in a previous session of Congress. Sessions of Congress last two years, and at the end of each session all proposed bills and resolutions that haven't passed are cleared from the books. Members often reintroduce bills that did not come up for debate under a new number in the next session.
Nov 2, 2007: House Judiciary: Referred to the Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights, and Civil Liberties.
See the Related Legislation page for other bills related to this one and a list of subject terms that have been applied to this bill. Sometimes the text of one bill or resolution is incorporated into another, and in those cases the original bill or resolution, as it would appear here, would seem to be abandoned.
A number of studies show that THC provides medical benefits for cancer and AIDS patients by increasing appetite and decreasing nausea. It has also been shown to assist some glaucoma patients by reducing pressure within the eye, and is used in the form of cannabis by a number of multiple sclerosis patients, who use it to alleviate neuropathic pain and spasticity. The National Multiple Sclerosis Society is currently supporting further research into these uses.
In August 2009 a phase IV clinical trial by the Hadassah Medical Center in Jerusalem, Israel was started to investigate the effects of THC on post-traumatic stress disorders. THC and other cannabinoid agonists have been shown to be beneficial both in open label studies, as well as in laboratory experiments with animals to ameliorate post-traumatic stress disorders.
Preliminary research on synthetic THC has been conducted on patients with Tourette syndrome, with results suggesting that it may help in reducing nervous tics and urges by a significant degree. Research on twelve patients showed that Marinol reduced tics with no significant adverse effects. A six-week controlled study on 24 patients showed that the patients taking dronabinol had a significant reduction in tic severity without serious adverse effects. More significant reduction in tic severity was reported with longer treatment. No detrimental effects on cognitive functioning and a trend towards improvement in cognitive functioning were reported during and after treatment.
Dronabinol's usefulness as a treatment for TS cannot be determined until/unless longer controlled studies on larger samples are undertaken. Research on THC has shown that Cannabinoid receptors are responsible for mediated inhibition of dopamine release in the retina. A growing number of people around the world and in Canada are ingesting Hemp Oil, THC, and curing themselves of life threatening Cancers and other diseases in weeks.
Society, media, and the judicial system in Canada are constantly reinforcing myths and stereotypes about rape. These myths and stereotypes result in victim blaming and sex shaming rather than placing responsibility on the perpetrators of these crimes.
The goal of this petition is call on the federal government to take this issue seriously, restore funding to feminist initiatives and create a national strategy to end violence against women in collaboration with women's groups.
We invite you to sign this petition calling for the the federal government of Canada to make meaningful change to promote women’s equality.
One animal rights campaigner did not approve of how animals were being treated at a certain place, so she joined a peaceful protest and within seconds the police arrived. Despite the best efforts of the other campaigners, this woman landed with broken legs and arms and just lies in bed and cries herself to sleep most nights.
All they were doing is peacefully and legally saying no. Isn't it about time that we started targetting the ones that actually ARE extremists and not peaceful campaigners?
We are a group of rights activists from UK and would like bring to your notice an urgent matter which has gone unnoticed.
The deportation of failed Disabled women asylum seekers irrespective of which ever country they belong to should be stopped as it is a straight violation of basic human rights. It is extremely inhuman to send back disabled women asylum seekers as they already have lot to cope with. Rules are for human beings and especially should be in favour of humans for whom life has not been fair.
Imagine a paraplegics life who is being deported and sent back to a country where she may face ill treatment or destitution. Especially disabled women asylum seekers are more vulnerable in their countries due to lack of amenities and possible exploitation by mentally sick and perverted people apart from their possible persecutors.
The inhuman practice or disregard and insensitiveness towards failed disabled woman asylum seekers should be immediately stopped and also their detention. The care of these failed disabled woman asylum seekers should be entrusted to other able bodied asylum seekers (Women) under the community service work . This will greatly reduce the pressure on the system and people from the same backgrounds can also integrate easily reducing the isolation stress. The aim is that we build a much more humane society with decrease in the burden on the present infrastructure and manpower.
UK has ratified the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities in 2009 but in practice it is slipping on the issue of the world's most vulnerable ones- DISABLED WOMEN ASYLUM SEEKERS and especially the ones who have failed. It has been learnt that UKBA ( United Kingdom Border Agency) has shown utter insensitivity towards them.
We urge you to protect the disabled women asylum seekers and not to be deported irrespective of any country they belong to. We request you to undertake this very seriously as the human rights levels in the civilised world are slowly decaying. It is the first world where we need to contain the basic degradation of human rights which goes unnoticed due to the turmoil around the world.
We request you to write and pursue this matter with Mr David Cameron,PM of Uk, Mr. Nick Clegg, Deputy PM of UK and also Ms. Theresa May , Home secretary of state. Infact deportation of Disabled Women Asylum seekers should be stopped worldwide inorder to restore the basic human rights values to the ones who need them the most.
Looking forward to a positive development and a assertive action to stop the deportation of Disabled women asylum seekers.
Thanks and regards,
Fathers and Mothers who have been convicted of child cruelty to their children still have contact in a contact centres or have another member of their family supervise the visit in their own home. This has to stop now.
If they abuse the children in a contact centre or whilst supported or supervised the courts still give them access! The contact centres say they did not see anything as they are busy watching up to 10 children coupled with 10 fathers or mothers, if one needs the toilet that is makes up to 38 people to be watched during that time, this is when the parent strikes out at the kids, whisper in their ears and the abuse starts all over again. Nobody but nobody is doing anything to stop this.
It is unbelievable that this country would send a victim to the offender week after week to be abused. The courts don’t hear the children telling them of horrendous things of bruises on their little bodies or see tiny children aged 2 And 3 lift their tops to show bruises.
Please help me to change the law. No contact of any description for any parent convicted of any violent or sexual offence to their children until the child is 18 years of age. Sign my petition for our kid’s sake!
South Carolina dose not have any nude or clothing optional beach areas and really needs one. South Carolina's Nudity Laws are as follows:
OFFENSES AGAINST MORALITY AND DECENCY
SECTION 16-15-130. Indecent exposure; breastfeeding.
(A)(1) It is unlawful for a person to wilfully, maliciously, and indecently expose his person in a public place, on property of others, or to the view of any person on a street or highway.
(2) This subsection does not apply to a woman who breastfeeds her own child in a public place, on property of others, to the view of any person on a street or highway, or any other place where a woman and her child are authorized to be.
(B) A person who violates the provisions of subsection (A)(1) is guilty of a misdemeanor and, upon conviction, must be fined in the discretion of the court or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.
We need to work to repeal these laws and strengthen the naturist movement for years to come.
On university campuses, students with medical marijuana cards are unprotected; many students who live on campus do not have access to proper facilities for holding their marijuana legally because of the on-campus policies that are in effect.
This is due in part to the fact that California universities receive federal funding with the condition that they keep a "Drug-Free" campus - meaning students who use medicinal marijuana are especially targeted, despite what the state law allows.
Students with medical marijuana cards who are caught with marijuana on campus are threatened with severe punishments. For freshman and other on campus residents, they run the risk of losing their housing even for a first offense. The current policies on campus allow for residential advisors to key into rooms and invade the privacy of students in search of marijuana and paraphernalia related to its use.
Students who use marijuana for medical reasons are also faced with difficulties in regard to zoning laws. Locations are not made easily available for students to use their medicine and they risk further legal consequences by using it in those areas that surround campus and are surrounded by other Chico schools.
