5 million facebook petition for Obama to legalize weed

A Facebook group organised by the US campaigning organisation NORMAL is aiming to get 5 million members to pressure Obama to legalise marijuana. They say:
"OBAMA was originally for the decriminalization of marijuana but, soon after talking to his advisers he changed his position. We hope Obama will stand for what he first said and probably believes in himself".
They suggest that President Obama should instead take the advice of ex President Jimmy Carter; "Penalties against possession of a drug should not be more damaging to an individual than the use of the drug itself."

Obama on marijuana: "I inhaled ... frequently."

So let me get this straight. A world famous athlete smokes pot, multiple celebrities and law enforcement smoke pot, even the PRESIDENT himself said he used to smoke pot. Why, why after 70+ years is marijuana still illegal? It's basically been proven to be unable to harm you in any serious way, but alcohol, after countless wrecks and bar fights, is still legal. I feel like my heads going to explode with anger.

My blog advocates Marijuana use if anyone is interested in such.

This has been a very long and slow battle for cannabis users. I don't understand why other countries have already decriminalized legal weed but the US is still prohibiting it.

People should be allowed to buy legal weed and psychedelic pill. Not once has anyone been recorded of dying from an overdose of cannabis because it is non-toxic. If only people will use this drug responsibly, it can be a very effective treatment for a long list of ailments.

I think the reason it isn't legalised is the influence the big alcohol companies have over our governments.

When cannabis is smoked with a vaporizer it is much less harmful than either alcohol and tobacco.

THE REAL REASON CANNABIS IS STILL ILLEGAL IS BECAUSE HEMP CAN PRODUCE OVER 250,000 TEXTILE PRODUCTS AND WOULD REPLACE THE FUEL INDUSTRY, PAPER INDUSTRY AND PHARMACEUTICAL INDUSTRY PLUS MANY MORE. OUR GOVERNMENT CANNOT AFFORD TO LOOSE THE MONEY OUT OF THEIR POCKETS SO INSTEAD THEY PUT A BAN ON ALL CULTIVATION OF A MIRACLE PLANT(MARIJUANA).

Then again, there are people that are being hypocritical by allowing alcohol consumption but not Kronic Black Label (cannabis) usage. With passionate believers on both sides of the argument, it will be interesting to see what happens when the smoke clears.

Cannabinoids have been found to have antioxidant properties, unrelated to NMDA receptor antagonism. This new found property makes cannabinoids useful in the treatment and prophylaxis of wide variety of oxidation associated diseases, such as ischemic, age-related, inflammatory and autoimmune diseases. The cannabinoids and spice incense are found to have particular application as neuroprotectants, for example in limiting neurological damage following ischemic insults, such as stroke and trauma, or in the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease and HIV dementia. Nonpsychoactive cannabinoids, such as cannabidoil, are particularly advantageous to use because they avoid toxicity that is encountered with psychoactive cannabinoids at high doses useful in the method of the present invention. A particular disclosed class of cannabinoids useful as neuroprotective antioxidants is formula (I) wherein the R group is independently selected from the group consisting of H, CH.sub.3, and COCH.sub.3. ##STR1##
