American citizens for the decriminalization of marijuana in the U.S.A.
Supporters of this petition agree that, marijuana use and sale should be legalized in the United States of America, for the reasons that follow : 1. Any American citizen over the age of 18 who has verifiable Identification and is allowed to apply his/herself to enlist in our military to fight for our country's freedom, should have the right to inhale the smoke produced by a natural plant. 2. Taxing the sale of Marijuana the same as cigarettes would create a very desirable, positive boost to our economy and increase our government's funds which could be put towards providing grants to schools or increasing the reality of a free healthcare system. 3. The Marijuana plant is a renewable resource that can be used for many different purposes such as fuels, medicines, oils, paper, and building materials etc. 4. A person committing a crime is held responsible for his/her own actions whether sober or under the influence of any substance and faces the same consequences as the perpetrator before him/her, therefor, the assumption that a drug influenced the act should be thrown out of question. 5. America is considered a "Free Country" isn't it?
