Marijuana Legalization on Federal Level - We The People petition.

  1. Cool. The 5th one this week. It says there is no timetable for response meaning they don't have to respond.
  2. " A account is required to sign Petitions "
  3. We live in a representative democracy, not a direct democracy.  If you want marijuana legalized on a federal level, you have to:
    A) Convince Congress to amend a law they've shown no collective interest in changing since implementing it 44 years ago.
    B) Get it approved by the Food and Drug Administration, then the Department of Health and Human Services, then the Drug Enforcement Administration, then the attorney general.
    The "top-down"/federal approach to legalization was, is, and will probably never work.
    The "bottom-up"/state-by-state approach to legalization is already working.  You have to gradually chip away at the foundation until we reach a tipping point where the fedgov is either forced to do something concrete, or at worst does nothing concrete but adopts a consistent, reliable position of tolerance towards cannabis.
