  1. I have just visited GoPetition.com and found the following page very interesting:
    http://www.gopetition.com/petitions/the-legalization-of-medical-marijuana-in-the-state-of-texas.html
    Here is the petition statement with only 9 signatures! That is pitiful! It may be old but please sign it.

    Description/History:
    For many centuries before marijuana was made illegal, it was a significant part in the role of medical treatments for several types of chronic illnesses and pain.So why was it made illegal??
    There are MANY legal drugs in this country that have been proven LESS affective and MORE dangerous to your health than marijuana could ever do.
    make marijuana available to sufferers of:
    * Nausea and vomiting, especially when due to chemotherapy for cancer or HIV-AIDS
    * Anorexia, especially in the setting of HIV-AIDS
    * Chronic pain, especially when due to damaged nerves (e.g., spinal cord injury)
    * Muscle spasms and spasticity (e.g., multiple sclerosis, post-stroke syndrome)
    * Glaucoma
    * Migraine headaches
    *insomnia and mood disorders (e.g., depression, anxiety, bi-polar disorder, and stress reactions, including post-traumatic stress disorder)
    *learning disabilities(e.g ADHD,ADD)
    Petition:
    I,(your name), have hereby agreed to all above terms regarding medical marijuana use in the state of Texas.

  10. I am glad to see all the early support. Let's keep passing the message around to Texans. I would like to see the petition get thousands of signatures. We are up to 30 as of August 15th, 2007. A good start, but lets keep it going; it will take a lot more support than that.:hello:
     
  11. any h-town tokers in here? yay yayyy
     
  12. By all means sign this. But if you really want to make a difference you should write letters, emails, and make phone calls to the appropriate politians in Texas. This has a far greater impact than an online petition.

    The problem with online petitions is they can easily be faked, the same person can "sign" thousands of times. People not from Texas can sign it (like the guy from ct who signed it). I've been to plenty of council meetings in my time and not much thought if any thought at all is put into these online petitions because politicians know they can easily be manipulated.

    I'm not saying don't sign it. But take the extra step and call or write/email your reps, that's the best way to make a difference. Contact groups like mpp (www.mpp.org) or norml (norml.org)and they will give you information on who to contact in Texas ecte ct.


    Let me know if you have any questions on how to get more involved, I'm more than willing to help.
