Dear MoveOn member,
The Drug Enforcement Administration just announced that they'll soon consider whether to reclassify marijuana and remove it from its Schedule 1 "dangerous drugs" category.1 Will you join me in calling to decriminalize marijuana? Click here to sign the petition to President Barack Obama, which says:
There are well over 100 scientific studies showing definitive benefits of medical marijuana pertaining to pain management, sleep management, anger management, anxiety disorders, seizures, cancer, and other ailments.2
Decriminalizing marijuana is the right thing to do, and it is necessary to do. We must end the destruction of hundreds of thousands of young lives by criminalizing them for possessing a harmless, natural substance.
—Eric Bruce Eichbauer
