1. Stop The City of Black Diamond from Eliminating Lady Buds

Lady Buds is a secure members only organization dedicated to holistic healing and compassion and helping people live better more fulfilling lives through adult responsible and legally medially authorized use of medical marijuana.

Lady Buds does not buy or sell marijuana. Lady Buds facilitates an exchange among legally authorized medical patients who, under state law, are allowed to assist other legally authorized medical patients in the growing, processing, transportation, and delivery of medical marijuana.

The City of Black Diamond licensed Lady Buds in August 2012; the City renewed Lady Buds' license for the year 2013. Lady Buds has operated in Black Diamond for more than 1 year without generating a single complaint. Lady Buds is 100% compliant with State Law and local ordinance.

Even though Lady Buds is a law abiding facility which provides a valuable service to medical patients in Black Diamond, certain people in the Black Diamond City Government are exercising their profession al bias and prejudice and are trying to force Lady Buds out of business.

2. Legalize Marijuana in Georgia

Whereas marijuana is a plant, created by God and owned by no one; and whereas the state of Georgia, at the urging of the United States federal government, has waged war on peaceful citizens for no reason other than because they consume a plant that was created by God (and owned by no one):

We call upon the State Representatives, Senate and the Governor of the State of Georgia to legalize the production and possession of marijuana by all adult citizens of this great state.

3. Legalize the most useful plant on the planet

A few decades ago, the most useful plant on the planet was criminalized with absolutely no evidence to back up the reasoning for it to be criminalized.

This plant absorbs carbon dioxide while it grows; reducing the carbon footprint that we-as humans-leave for the future generations. This plant also absorbs harmful radiation.

This plant can be used to make paper, fabrics, building supplies, plastics, fuel, and many other things that are useful to mankind and is a renewable resource. This plant is also the most nutritious food source available. The human body maintains a balance of Omega 3, Omega 6 and Omega 9 fatty acids at a ratio of 1:1:2 to function properly. This plant is the only plant in existence that maintains that ratio and is also a great source of fiber.

Within this plant there are compounds very similar to the ones found in breast milk that aid in proper brain and social development in children. The compounds in this plant have been proven to prevent cancer when ingested and to cure cancer when these compounds are concentrated and ingested in high volumes.

There has never been a death or instance of overdose documented in association with this plant or any concentrate derived from this plant.

4. Legalize marijuana in Nepal

Marijuana (Cannabis) has been banned for a long time in our country. Without knowing no absolute effects about it, the politicians have banned marijuana an with the help of corrupted police have made it unchangeable.

However, until now, no bad effects of marijuana have been found or known anywhere in the globe. Even Unite States of America [U.S.A.] have legalized marijuana in two of it's states i.e. Colorado an Washington, and many states revolting for it's legalization.

The latest and recent scientific researches have found that Marijuana has the ability to cure cancer. Marijuana if legalized can help people addicting to drugs to back down and can improve a country's economy. Also the cutting own of trees or deforestation can be degraded as hemp a type of cannabis can be used for making paper, furniture an other unknown public an medical uses.

With such high functions of its own, Marijuana still is legalized. With many countries making their step to legalize marijuana I have taken a step too by signing this petition, an effort to legalize Marijuana, which was legal around 30 years ago in our country.

5. How High 2

I have asked this question on Facebook and other social sites about the making of How High 2, and alot of people would love to see it. On Metacritic it recieved 8.4 out of 10 and on Amazon 4 out of 5 stars.

The only thing holding up the making of the movie is Universal Pictures owns the rights, if you guys dont want to take part in the making of the movie then at least release the rights so the movie can be filmed.

People at TMZ have asked about this also, hopandnewhiphop.com also recieved 4.8 out of 5 stars.

9. Ban Synthetic Cannabis

At present synthetic cannabis also known as "herbal incense" is being sold over the counter by at least 5 shops here in Bendigo and also being delivered after hours by another service.

This drug/poison is 10 times stronger than THC and carries with it a much higher risk of physical and mental damage to the user, yet is legally being sold to kids as young as 15.

10. Legalize Cannabis in Ireland

Cannabis has been on this earth for over 1000's of years and not one single death has ever been contributed to cannabis directly! How come we are told its a dangerous ''Drug''? This is far from the truth!

Cannabis is a plant with very high medicinal purposes which has been scientifically proven numerous time to help in the reduction of pain in ailments such as AIDS, GLAUCOMA, ANXIETY, DEPRESSION, CANCER, ADHD. There are numerous other examples.

If cannabis is legalized it would also generate HUGE TAX which could be put to reducing our national debt, improving our health care system, improving our schools, increased tourism to our once great nation. It would also reduce government spending on policing our current anti-cannabis policy. 6 in 10 drug related arrests in Ireland are for cannabis? Could these resources not be put to better use?

The establishment of a legal cannabis system would create massive employment particularly in the farming sector which is already in need of a massive boost.

Cannabis could also be used to produce cleaner energy and reduce greenhouse levels which are at an all time high of 400ppm (parts per million).

13. Legalize Marijuana Canada

We need to legalize Marijuana at the federal level.

Several polls since 2003 have found that a majority of Canadians agreed with the statement, "The use of marijuana should be legalized", including one in 2009 done by Angus Reid, with 53% for legalization.

The latest being in 2012 by Forum Research Inc. which suggested "66% of Canadians are in favour of the legalization or decriminalization of marijuana, with just 20% supporting leaving the laws as they are now."

14. Making spice (synthetic marijuana) Illegal

Getting Spice (synthetic marijuana) Banned is important to me because I've heard about so many young kids die from it, and a lot of teens now are buying it because its legal. It might be legal, but it is not safe at all.

It isn't a natural plant like regular marijuana is so it hurts your body, and basically breaks down your insides. Someone I love and care about a lot is actually addicted to it, but it was hard for him to find a rehab because doctors say that there is little research about it.

If there is little research about it then it shouldn't be sold ! It should be banned because it is killing people and someone needs to stop it.

18. Legalise Personal Use of Cannabis

Many Pros and Cons surround this argument about the legalisation of this drug, the Pros however heavily out weigh the Cons.

1) The chance to tax it

Roughly around 10 million people smoke cannabis in the UK, meaning a standard 20% tax on 10 million people smoking an average of 1 joint a day, would net the country an extra £2 billion.

2) Our overcrowded prisons

A high percentage of our prison space is occupied by cannabis related sentaces, people being locked up for either growing, distributing or smoking a plant, sound sensible?

3) Have certified smoking areas

Smokers realise not everyone enjoys it, so having laws and areas for the controlled recreational use of it so as to not bother those not wanting to be bothered.

Finally, we're proving that even though laws are in place, we are still doing it and your not stopping us, not meaning to sound rude, but why not make some money out of something that's happening and going to happen forever?

I would like to refer you to numerous studies (since 1974!) that show that cannabinoids kills cancer cells, shrink tumors, halts the spread of invasive carcinomas, and prevents occurrence; cannabinoids signal the cancer to go into apoptosis which is “programmed cell death” after Ceramide begins production.

Studies:

-University of Texas study showing the CB1 receptor (which is activated by cannabis) suppresses colorectal cancer tumor, when the CB-1 receptor is lost cancer can occur;
-Univ of Southern Florida study showing that cannabis blocks cancer causing viruses;
-Harvard study showing cannabis cuts lung cancer growth in half;
-The British Journal of Cancer reports that cannabis treats prostate cancer;

21. Prevent Salvia Criminalization in Canada and Create a Sensible Policy for Control

This is an updated petition with the aim of preventing criminilization of the psychoactive plant Salvia Divinorum. You don't have to use Salvia to sign the petition. Everyone who can see the wisdom behind this proposal is invited to sign!!!

The main points behind this proposal are:
-Preservation of freedom of choice/diet
-Preservation of the taxed Salvia Divinorum industry
-Prevention of shift of Salvia Divinorum sales into unregulated, untaxed black market
-A sensible and simple new policy for regulating the plant.

Salvia must not be criminalized just because it offers a psychoactive effect. Outlawing Salvia is a gross restriction of a freedom that has been peacefully preserved. This is about civil liberties. We need to agree on a sensible solution that isn't going to waste money imprisoning Canadians!!

23. SUPPORT S.B.17 DELAWARE SENATE MEDICAL MARIJUANA BILL

Marijuana's recorded use as a medicine goes back nearly 5,000 years. Modern medical research has confirmed the beneficial uses for marijuana in treating or alleviating the pain, nasea, and other symptoms associated with a variety of debilitating medical conditions, including cancer, multiple sclerosis and HIV/AIDS, as found by the National Academy of Sciences' Institute of Medicine in March 1999. (taken from the current Delaware Senate Bill 17)

Fifteen states and the District of Columbia already have laws protecting seriously ill patients who use medical marijuana, and more than a dozen additional states considered medical marijuana legislation in 2010, including neighboring Maryland, Pennsylvania, and New York. And New Jersey passed its medical marijuana bill into law last January! On January 25, 2010, the News Journal said "there is no reason Delaware should not become the 15th state to do so." Tell your legislators you agree and that it's time for this cruel policy to end.

Marijuana was shown to help more than three-quarters of nauseated chemotherapy patients who did not respond to other medicines in one study. It has also been associated with tripling the chances that AIDS and hepatitis C patients will be able to stay on their life-saving medicines. Delaware has the fifth-highest AIDS rate in the country, and these patients are still being denied their medicine. That is why it is so important that you co-sponsor and vote for S.B. 17 (amended from SB 94), medical marijuana legislation sponsored by Sen. Margaret Rose Henry (D-Wilmington), to protect patients from arrest.

Unlike OxyContin, Tylenol, and even water, marijuana has never caused an overdose death. And, the American Public Health Association and American Nurses Association have noted its extremely wide margin of safety. Yet, using it with a doctor’s recommendation remains punishable by jail time in our state.

The Wilmington News-Journal said it best in its January 25 editorial, “Let chronically ill use pot for mercy's sake.” “Of the 14 states with such laws, five approved them through their legislatures. Neighboring New Jersey became the most recent state to see both the wisdom and compassion of the law. There is no reason why Delaware should not become the 15th state to do so.”

Patients have suffered for too long. Will you stand up for patients and co-sponsor compassionate medical marijuana legislation? Thank you for your time.

25. Legalize Marijuana In NSW Australia

THIS IS NOT BORING, I PROMISE (: and no i am not some hippy trying to save mother earth.

People around the world have been smoking marijuana for thousands of years while also using the hemp plant for everything from fabric and rope to ethanol fuel. Unfortunately, somewhere along the way, a man with a bit of power and enough determination decided pot was disgusting, evil and narcotic.

He moved mountains to make it illegal worldwide. In our very own Australia the struggle continues to this day to overcome the lies and misconceptions about marijuana that the government spent billions to spread.

Between 1937 and 1947, the government spent $220 million on the war against drugs. Between 1948 and 1963, the cost of this "war" on marijuana alone escalated to $1.5 billion. From 1964 to 1969 the government spent $9 billion on the war against marijuana, a price tag that continues to rise.

26. Put an end to Marijuana (Cannabis) Prohibition in Australia

The facts are simple. Drug dealers don't ask for identification. But what we want is to police who receives medicinal marijuana (cannabis); must be over 18 with sufficient 100 point id, and who farms hemp, mostly for quality control.

Also set up a register of buyers and suppliers, including social cannabis users.

28. Legalize Cannabis use for Adults 18 and up in the USA

Prohibition has failed to control the use and domestic production of marijuana. The government has tried to use criminal penalties to prevent marijuana use for over 75 years and yet: marijuana is now used by over 25 million people annually, cannabis is currently the largest cash crop in the United States, and marijuana is grown all over the planet.

Claims that marijuana prohibition is a successful policy are ludicrous and unsupported by the facts, and the idea that marijuana will soon be eliminated from America and the rest of the world is a ridiculous fantasy.

Arrests for marijuana possession disproportionately affect blacks and Hispanics and reinforce the perception that law enforcement is biased and prejudiced against minorities. African-Americans account for approximately 13% of the population of the United States and about 13.5% of annual marijuana users, however, blacks also account for 26% of all marijuana arrests. Recent studies have demonstrated that blacks and Hispanics account for the majority of marijuana possession arrests in New York City, primarily for smoking marijuana in public view.

Law enforcement has failed to demonstrate that marijuana laws can be enforced fairly without regard to race; far too often minorities are arrested for marijuana use while white/non-Hispanic Americans face a much lower risk of arrest.

FACTS:
· Deaths per year resulting from alcohol: 100,000
· Deaths per year resulting from tobacco: 430,000
· Deaths per year resulting from aspirin: 180- 1000
· Deaths per year resulting from legal drugs: 106,000
· Deaths that have ever occurred in direct result of Cannabis: 0 (that’s right zero)
Hemp is the oldest cultivated fiber plant in the world.
· Low-THC fiber hemp varieties developed by the French and others have been available for over 20 years. It is impossible to get high from fiber hemp. Over 600,000 acres of hemp is grown worldwide with no misuse problem.
· One acre of hemp can produce as much usable fiber as 4 acres of trees or two acres of cotton.
· Trees cut down take 50-500 years to grow, while hemp can be cultivated in as little as 100 days and can yield 4 times more paper over a 20 year period.
· Until 1883, from 75-90% of all paper in the world was made with cannabis hemp fiber including that for books, Bibles, maps, paper money, stocks and bonds, newspapers, etc.
· Hemp paper is longer lasting than wood pulp, stronger, acid-free, and chlorine free (Chlorine is estimated to cause up to 10% of all Cancers).
· Hemp paper can be recycled 7 times, wood pulp 4 times.
· Hemp particleboard may be up to 2 times stronger than wood particleboard and holds nails better.
· Hemp is a softer, warmer, and more water absorbent, than cotton and doesn’t stretch out.
· Half of the U.S. pesticides are used to treat cotton, while hemp has a natural pesticide.
· Almost any product that can be made from wood, cotton, or petroleum (including plastics) can be made from hemp. There are 25,000 known uses for hemp.
· For thousands of years virtually all good paints and varnishes were made with hemp seed oil and/or linseed oil.
· One acre of hemp produces as much cellulose fiber pulp as 4.1 acres of trees, making hemp a perfect material to replace trees for pressed board, particle board, and concrete construction molds.
· Heating and compressing plant fibers can create a practical, inexpensive, fire-resistant constructions material with excellent thermal and sound-insulating qualities.
· In 1941 Henry Ford built a plastic car made of fiber from hemp and wheat straw. Hemp is biodegradable, as synthetic plastic is not.

29. The Michael Phillips Compassionate Care Act: Legalize Pot in Alabama HB 642

GREEN CURE.NET is pleased to announce that the Michael Phillips Compassionate Care Act (HB 642), which seeks to enact legal protections for authorized medical marijuana patients, has been introduced in the Alabama Legislature and was passed by House Judiciary Committee on April 7.

The bill now awaits action by the full house (which, most likely will not take place until lawmakers reconvene next year). You can watch video of the hearing here. You can read media coverage of the vote here and here.

House Bill 642 will help to ensure that medical marijuana patients in Alabama will no longer have to fear arrest or prosecution from state law enforcement. As introduced, this act would allow qualified patients under a physician's supervision to possess up to 12 cannabis plants and/or 2.5 ounces of medical marijuana for therapeutic purposes. However, this proposal will only receive serious consideration if your elected officials hear an unmistakable message of support from their constituents.

Currently, fourteen states -- Alaska, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Maine, Michigan, Montana, New Jersey, New Mexico, Nevada, Oregon, Rhode Island, Vermont and Washington -- have enacted laws protecting medical marijuana patients from state prosecution. Patients in these fourteen states enjoy legal protections to use medicinal marijuana under a doctor's supervision; seriously ill citizens in Alabama deserve this same protection.

Please take two minutes of your time today to contact your state House member and tell him or her to support medical marijuana. For your convenience, a prewritten letter will be sent to your representatives when you enter your zip code below.

Thank you for your support of GREEN CURE.NET and our efforts to enact medical marijuana reform in Alabama.

30. Legalize Cannabis/Marijuana in Canada

Join us on facebook and send this group to everyone you know to spread this petition across Canada.

http://www.facebook.com/home.php?#!/group.php?gid=120802277945240&v=info&ref=ts

Canada's current Marijuana laws are not just to the "problems" they cause. There is little scientific evidence linking cannabis to any important side effects. Marijuana is far less damaging than alcohol by most tests and should be treated so.

The majority of Canada has shown time and time again they are more in support of legalizing marijuana than keeping it illegal at a time where the Conservative government is trying to make even harsher penalties for simple non-violent marijuana offences. British Columbia and Ontario Supreme courts have both ruled Canada's Marijuana laws unconstitutional but our government refuses to listen to the people for what is right.

Sign This Petition and help protest Canada's unjust law that serves no purpose considering the legalizing and taxing of Marijuana could help serve to bring Canada's economy back from the recession along with eliminating one of the most common criminal charges.
