New Website Touts Marijuana Legalization

Think marijuana laws will never change in the U.S.? Well, 81 percent of Americans support medical marijuana, 72 percent support no jail time for weed, and 50 percent support legalizing pot.

New activist website MarijuanaMajority.com states ‘the war on marijuana has failed. Pretty much everyone knows it. But too many people who support replacing marijuana prohibition with legalization or decriminalization are afraid to say so. Because they don’t realize that a majority of Americans — including some of the most influential voices from across the political spectrum — feel exactly the same way, these silenced supporters see speaking out as risky.”

Marijuana Majority points out who’s on the right side of history with a single place to collect quotes and videos from politicians, religious leaders, celebs, doctors and cops who also think it’s time to end the war on weed. The list includes Morgan Freeman, Pat Robertson, Rahm Emanuel, Elizabeth Warren, Rihanna, Sarah Palin, Richard Branson, Bill Clinton, etc.

    So if all would finally read this report, then it would be clear as cristal to all what is really going on:

    THE REPORT. CANNABIS: THE FACTS, HUMAN RIGHTS AND THE LAW
    ISBN 9781902848204.

    Denial of cannabis by Prohibition ‘law’ premeditatedly inflicts suffering, blindness, and, in many instances, death. Those who maintain any use of life-saving cannabis to be "illegal" should be regarded and treated as perpetrators of the gravest of crimes, and deemed unfit to hold any public office in a democratic society.

    Die Verweigerung von Cannabis durch das Prohibitions-Gesetz verursacht vorsätzlich Leiden, Blindheit und fuehrt in vielen Fällen zum Tod. Diejenigen, die das Verbot der Verwendung von lebensrettenden Cannabis als "illegal" zu halten betrachten, sollten behandelt werden wie ein Täter des schwersten Verbrechens und als ungeeignet angesehen werden ein öffentliches Amt in einer demokratischen Gesellschaft zu fuehren.
