Where do you stand on today's education issues? Let's stand together.
It's time to stand together on the education issues we face today. Those issues are big and they are complex, but we can ensure that every child receives a quality education if we unite around our shared vision and focus our energy on impact.
We all agree that every child deserves an affordable, high quality education. And every teacher deserves to be fairly compensated. Every community deserves funding for the programs and resources it needs to give our kids the very best possible start and every possible opportunity. But everyday, the education issues we face are holding our children back. Students around the world are falling behind. Individual students with particular needs, interests, or inclinations are getting lost in the shuffle. Class sizes are increasing as the pool of available teachers is decreasing. In 2008, the United Nations estimated that 69 million children, worldwide, were out of school. Millions of children won't receive an education due to poverty, safety concerns, or discrimination. We are increasingly unable to provide a strong start for today's children.
These education issues seem insurmountable. But we cannot just throw up our hands and continue to ignore these problems. No single person can do it alone. But we know that our community is strong and, together, we can create change.
Let's stand together and advocate for educational reform. Let's come together to take a stand on the educational issues that matter. When we unite for good, we can contribute to the solution and improve the quality and availability of education in our own communities and around the world.
The petitions below cover a range of education issues and take a variety of approaches. Some are aimed at elected officials, pleading with them to change policies and standards so that teachers will receive fair pay. Some demand more funding for early childhood education so that our youngest students can start their educational journey well. Some are aimed at universities and banks, urging them to make higher education more affordable so that everyone can enjoy access to the same opportunities. Some lay out the case of one special student or a small group of local kids whose educational opportunities are at risk. Regardless of its scope or approach, each petition aims to create a kinder, gentler, more inclusive world. When we come together and start down the path of solving any one of these education issues, we can change the direction education is headed and make a turn for the better.
When you create or sign a petition advocating for the education issues that matter to you, you become part of the Care2 communitya community that has made world-changing impact through starting campaigns and supporting each other's work. When you create or sign a petition, you join a community united for good. Your signature may help just one child but your action will encourage a culture of promoting education for all and ensuring a better future for our young people. Your support of the petitions below will ensure that we begin to solve the education issues in our own communities and around the world.
When we stand together, our actions have an impact. Let's stand together and take action on the education issues we face today.

My name is Marshall Doe and I am launching a book under the #1 million reader campaign. Due to the exorbitant prices of books In traditional stores people have completely given up reading in my country, a country with the highest literacy rate in Zimbabwe. My book wants to raise consciousness in the minds of the people. $1 a man and all will be able to afford to read on their phones because the dollar comes with an app were people can get my book and other cheap independent content.
If a million people pre order my book, all the money will go to staff and the rest to create a fund for education that can be crowd funded henceforth. Literacy will be improved and education for all will be possible through this trust fund. There is a # clothing line will also be launched as the brand for the campaign. The # brand after selling 1 million units a similar fund will be started for a Fashion and Design Trust. We need volunteers and people who will post selfies with a sign saying I HEART # on my facebook page Tafadzwa Marshall Takundwa and House Of The Rising Sun. Please comment and befriend me. phone number is +263771562745. Pre-order the book on facebook and donate through indiegogo under # 1 million reader Zimbabwe
The regulation's original goal was good, to force boards and principals to interview the most experienced and senior teacher's for an open position, be it an long term occasional position (1-10 month job) or contract/permanent position. Unfortunately, the regulation has forced laid off teacher's to lose years of seniority, has kept teacher's from moving throughout the province and general caused much more problems the solved.
Therefore we the understand wish to be rid of regulation 274!
The "Tossing of caps" is a symbolic meaning that represents saying goodbye to a former part of our life. Our high school seniors should be allowed to have this nationally popular tradition. The school school district has NO written rule in any handbook or graduation pledge , but if attempted or complaining of this rule results in ineligibility to participate in the commencement ceremony ,and or the delay of receiving of your diploma!!! We the students deserve the right to our 1st admendment rights of, Symbolic expression. Which the schools can only restrict if it substantially disrupts the classroom education process, with proper evidence!
Feeding America has a simple vision: a hunger-free America. Yet the reality is 1 in 5 kids in the United States faces hunger, which impacts their ability to focus and learn in school. Thankfully, you can do something about it.
This September, Congress has an important opportunity to help us achieve our vision by strengthening child nutrition programs, especially programs that target children when they are out of school and harder to reach. Unfortunately, nobody in Congress is talking about the child nutrition bill, and time is running out. It expires September 30, 2015.
We are on a quest to get Congress to start working on passing a strong child nutrition bill. Join Feeding America and thousands of anti-hunger advocates and help us spur Congress into action. Together, we can solve child hunger. Will you join us?
People should sign because Mr KUMA is bullying students and the superior teachers won't do anything.
You should sign because Peer Helping is one of those classes that when students take it they experience not just a class, but a family. Peer Helping dosen't teach you how to help your peers per say. It teaches you how to be a good person, How to have compassion and empathy. Its not a class its a way of seeing the world. So please sign, this class means a lot to people. So don't destroy it and ruin it for everyone else! Thank you for your consideration!
For The Bants
(In all seriousness, if we can actually get a decent amount of signatures, English class would be even funnier than it already is.)
The library is a great work enviroment for students. Decreasing the amount of chairs made it harder to use the library and its resources because people were being kicked out. There are students who need the textbooks to get their work done are deprived of the oppurtunity because textbooks cannot be checked out. Lowering the number of chairs was not beneficial in lowering noise, it only caused for more noise because friends were seperated and had to shout across the library.
We students believe that we should have access to at least one of our WIFI networks here at school. This will aid us in our school work and ease access of information.
Many kids within our school system do not have internet access at home, so they turn to school. Because of our small classes we only have limited access, if any, to computers. Many kids do not have the time to stay after school and wait to use an open computer, if we had internet access we would easily be able to work on our online classes and assignments through our mobile devices. The internet has become a huge part of daily life in the last 10-15 years. Not having access to the internet at school for a student that doesn't have it at home puts them at a huge disadvantage after school, to continue their studies.
WIFI access for students would not cost the school copious amounts of money. Students have counted and our school has 11 different WIFI networks, all of which are locked. So the school is already paying for the internet, we just cannot use it.
Technology in modern day is so important. In many classes, for example Health, we only have 8 computers,we have 18 students. Our assignments sometimes require us to get online, and many of us have to do that through our mobile devices (which can run up our data costs). If we had WIFI access we could bring in our laptops, iPads, or any other device to aid us in the completion of our work.
Another problem that the highschool really runs into is our online classes. Our computers in the computer lab are very faulty, and rarely work. If the internet isn't the problem then the problem is the computers. Instead of financing 50 new computers, it would be much cheaper to open WIFI networks and for students to have the option to complete their online classes on a separate device.
This act could be as simple as removing a pass-code off of one WIFI network. The internet access could solve a plethora of problems.
You should sing this if you had enough of people saying that ain't is not a word... time for change so that will never happen again!
Ms.Brown has been the worst teacher ever. She is disrespectful and gets smart with the kids that she teaches. For example if you ask her something like what page are we on in class she will get smart with you. She gives up huge packets to do in 1 hour and 30 minutes of class and they are only worth 10 points. She takes advantage of her job as being a teacher to get away with things. Once you tell an administrator she will lie to the administrator to not get in trouble. These are just some of the bad things she does and there is a lot more. Please sign this petition so the kids and future kids can pass this class.
Schools across the state of Wisconsin are about to lose $127 million in funding. Governor Walker plans to get rid of the $150 per student fund schools have been receiving over the past two years. This is becoming a problem, not just with school officials but even with students.
Take Milwaukee for example. They have been cut 200 million dollars out of their regular school funding. This has caused the school district to have to make cuts to music, art, and P.E. programs. This also has forced the school district to cut the staff down, forcing some classes to no longer exist. Students enjoy these extracurricular activities, and ridding them of this would be completely wrong. Please take the time to join this petition to stop the budget cuts from happening, and make Wisconsin schools better...not worse.
Our children get unfair labels from teachers in our public school system and these teachers just have too much power. My daughter's teacher decided to make my daughter sign a forced untrue signed confession and bring the written confession home to me to sign. I kept the confession and did not sign it but I made a formal complaint and it was determined that it was an untrue confession and that my daughter was telling the truth but teachers do not like parents sticking up for their children and making the teacher look bad and they do hold grudges and can be big bullies. I feel that video cameras should be installed in all classrooms and on the premises especially for special needs children who are unable to speak for themselves but not limited to special needs children only!
people should sign my petition because girls are tired of being treated like disractions and getting in trouble for the things that they like to wear.
The Lisle School Board wants to segregate the schools based on gender. You pay the taxes and you might be a student, so let's not let this happen!
The main reasons that you should conduct a petition drive are:
To heighten community awareness of your issue
To bring visibility and recognition to your group
To lead you to new members and future contacts for your group
To demonstrate widespread community support for the changes you seek
To help bring about the changes you are seeking
Petition drives are a possibility when others hold the decision-making power on an issue you care about, and when you need those others to create the changes you want. By addressing the petition to those decision-makers, you can involve a large number of people relatively easily.
Beyond that, some good indicators for a petition drive are when:
There is strong, or at least significant, public support for your issue.
You believe that a petition could sway key decision-makers.
Petitioning has not been an overused tactic in your particular setting.
There are enough people available to collect the necessary signatures in the time you have available.
By itself, a petition drive is not usually a sufficient tactic. However, you may want to start a petition drive when you and your group are conducting other actions and tactics to create the community change you want. For example, combined with a boycott of a particular corporation, a strongly worded petition would convey a powerful message to the leaders of that company. Or, if you were lobbying your local government for a particular law or regulation, a petition with many signers would show community support for that action. i would appreciate your vote
Because she says it so much
We are not taking a Spanish test seeing as no one was aware of it.
I feel it is important for the younger generation to have an idea of how to grow and maintain there own food. Agriculture is a big part of life and it Should be shown to the younger generations that it is possible to. Grow food with out the help of G.M.O.s
While picking my kids up from school, I saw a child get hurt while avoiding the traffic and on street parking on his bike. From my vantage point, it looked as though he'd been hit by a car, but it has been confirmed that he wasn't actually hit. I am so glad that he wasn't, but this doesn't change the need for more safety measures, sidewalks or bus routes. His accident was certainly attributed to the volume of cars along the road, if not directly related to one in particular.We live a mile and a half away, but my kids are zoned as "walkers." There are no sidewalks along the way. After much pleading on their behalf, we had decided to let them ride their bikes as many of the neighbor kids do. Earlier this week, I had a nagging impression to not allow them to ride their bikes and We have been Giving them rides again. Since driving them this week, I have seen the reckless and speedy habits of the drivers along the route to school and have been alarmed. However, today's' accident cemented my concern and I hope that you'll join me in voicing this worry to decision-makers within the district. I called the school, but their hands are tied. Please sign this petition for buses so that I can let the school board or city know the community supports this measure. Even if you don't go to Theiss... Everyone in Klein district should be concerned about the lack of safety. ***** please sign and share*****
We the students, of 8th grade feel as though we deserve a reception for our 8th graduation, an american tradition that has been taken away, it's only rightfully so we at least be spared our reception.
There is a lot of young people who want to go to uni, however the 9,000 per year scheme will make a total up to 27,000. Don't forget the additional cost of student accommodation, food, clothing, laundry etc. People may say oh well you can get student loans! Well how long are these student loans going to be in the shadows of our lives. Why does education have to have a high cost? Why is the option better for the middle/upper class than the working class? All this is creating is class inequality.
People often ignore the health;
Healthy habits to bring a better life
Personally, me and a couple other students at TC Williams in Alexandria, Virginia feel we are not being guaranteed the right student fundamentals we deserve. Our school has enough money to make a tennis court (mind you we have three available courts in the school area), but we don't have enough money or space to provide more lockers for students inside the school. The lunches are unacceptable and not carefully put together. What if I don't want spicy chicken and I prefer the mild? What if I prefer cheddar over mozzarella cheese over the nachos? It's basically the same food every day and we all are SICK of it. Also, we should have reception in the school in case of an emergency and parents can be contacted. We also deserve to be able to use our phones at lunch, because that is the only free time we have away from learning.
Childhood is too short for kids to be put under such pressure.
I don't agree that our children should be put under the pressure of sitting SATS at the age of 10 or 11. My son has been told that they are very important and that he will be very nervous and stressed out next week. What utter nonsense! SATS are only used only to gain precious points for the school to help them in the stupid table system.He's a child and should be able to enjoy his freedom before his secondary education begins.
This petition is to be signed for all those who know about the goverment and what the goverment is doing to the schools of this once been Great Nation. Because the goverment is trying to control our children and GOD we need to stand up and strike back!!! Because GOD Has been taken out of the schools and the King James Version Bible has been mocked and slandered against.
We never had this problem until we allowed an antichrist to cone into the Office of President over America. We never had problems of childeren being abused and even killing others in their schools and playgrounds. We as a whole need to come back to the one true Living GOD which is YAHUVEH or YAHWEH (Known as JEHOVAH). Fight for our children before it is too late. Abortion is not of GOD and neither is homosexuality. These are malice subjects that should not be subjected to our children at such an early age or any age for that matter.
We, the undersigned, demand an (at least) 450 seat auditorium with adequate stage size and acoustic design for our Orchestras, Choirs, Bands and Theater students at KUHS..
Currently the Board is planning a 250 seat "black box" theater to "support ... all of the performing arts" We feel that this is entirely inadequate and short changes the Music and Arts students, who represent the top 1/3 in achievement academically,in attendance,and in graduation rates.
Recently, we have heard news that a prior intern will become an IB teacher nest year. Those that sign this petition find this absurd because it will violate our IB integrity. An IB teacher can't be simply anyone. One cannot let any person teach the IB curriculum simply from lack of teachers to teach the subject. This petition if to prevent such person to not become the IB teacher right out of graduation with no experience. As mentioned, this is because, as students, we feel that our future will always come first and that is to ensure we will be able to pass the IB exams, It is such a risk to allow a person has no prior IB experience nor even thought of teaching IB curriculum until a couple weeks ago, so suddenly. We are not targeting him as a person and do look forward to him becoming a successful teacher. Yet, a teacher liked by everyone and can't teach correctly should not be classified as a teacher.
Those that sign to this petition do not approve of an intern becoming an IB teacher all of a sudden because it could get in the way of learning.
Please let DuPont Manual's admission as it is, don't change to lottery system
Nancy is clearly a racist
Boys (of all ages, especially those who are married) need to learn a FULL set of survival skills--not just how to survive in the woods.
In particular, showering and doing laundry are essential life skills. Life skills that will save significantly more boys than camping survival skills.
Dropping off boys after camping when they are smelly, cranky, carrying a bag full of dirty, smelly camping supplies and potentially bearing ticks is NOT okay.
As part of the camp out experience, have the boys find a laundromat and wash all their dirty clothing. Have them then find a Y and shower.
Mothers unite and refuse to allow entry to the home after camping unless the boys in your life have showered and completed washing all the items that went camping!!!
The STAR TESTS are ridiculous,by the time students take the test most have not been able to learn or Teachers don't give enough time,there's too many kids under TO MUCH STRESS. They're quitting school,skipping class,and in some cases have taken their own lives. OVER 1.1 MILLION KIDS CHOSE TO OP OUT OF TAKING THIS TEST. The only test that stands between them passing to the next grade. They take this test at the END OF THE YEAR!!! Who or what child can remember everything most have to go to Summer School,others just quit. This test is irrelevant to the learning process of our children and should not be considered in who passes to the next grade or who doesn't graduate. Do you know that your child is worth THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS A DAY, THAT THEY GET FROM OUR GOVERNMENT. It's the whole reason why you,me,your child,and teachers are not getting along AT ALL. ENOUGH WITH THIS TEST,KIDS COMING HOME FROM SCHOOL WITH MIGRAINES,DISOBEDIENCE,RUNNING AWAY,SKIPPING, HAVING TO SEEK COUNSELING,STRESSING MORE THAN AN ADULT, AND THE MAJOR SADNESS IS TAKING THEIR LIVES,MOST OF THE TESTS KIDS WILL NOT USE IN THEIR LIFE AND YET UNLESS THEYRE GOING TO BE CHEMISTS OR,JET FUEL INVENTORS,EVEN MASTERS OF LEARNING HOW TO SAVE THE WORLD WITH ONE SHOT,WILL NEVER USE WHAT THEYVE BEEN TESTED FOR NO KID SHOULD HAVE TO GO THROUGH THIS.AND NO PARENTS SHOULD HAVE TO GO THROUGH LOSING THEIR CHILD OVER STRESS BECAUSE OF THIS TESTING,ALSO IF THEY MAKE HIGH SCORES THE SCHOOL GETS A HUGE AMOUNT OF MONEY TO GET RAISES AND BUILD MORE SCHOOLS AND NOTHING ELSE GOES TO A CHILD GOING TO COLLEGE THAT HALF OF THE TIME WILL NEVER HAPPEN,SO PLEASE RESEARCH THIS AND SIGN THIS PETITION TO TELL THE SCHOOLS THAT ITS TIME FOR "PARENTS TO TAKE BACK THE OLD WAY THINGS WERE DONE,GIVE THE POWER BACK TO THE PARENTS OF THIS COUNTRY WE PAY FOR IT WE SHOULD HAVE THE SAY SO ON WHAT OUR OWN CHILDREN SHOULD HAVE TO DO TO PASS AND ITS NOT ATEST AT THE END OF THE YEAR WHEN THEYRE THINKING ABOUT GETTING A BREAK AND GETTING AWAY FROM THE SCHOOL SYSTEM ALL TOGETHER......... Thank You For Your Time and Support.
TO STOP SO many tests.I am in 6 grade and I have 53 main tests that leaves me with 127 days that are not main tests.When do I get to lean stuff or play with my friends when I am stress over test. I am a 504 student which means I get extra time and I still stress over tests.
School choice, rigorous learning environments, and school diversity would be adversely affected if Manual is changed to a lottery entrance OR if the admissions process is moved to JCPS central office. The JCPS Board meets this Monday, May 11, and they need to hear from taxpayers, parents, students, and other community stakeholders. Please sign and share today!
My name is Tayla and I suffer with anxiety and depression which made attending school difficult so my doctor signed me off . My school was ment to supply alternative education and they did not do that they are now saying I'm not aloud to attend my prom I have been dreaming of since I was little so the reason i am asking you to sign this petition is to prove to my school that I h the right to go to prom and what they have done by not providing any education is wrong.
This is actually a very important issue even though some people might not agree. When kids have to wear clothes that follow dress code they overheat and are not able to concentrate.
Every child is unique and special in his or her own way. The MN Department of Human Services needs to adapt the policies and procedures for childcare centers and understand that everything is not black and white but they need to realize there is a grey area when it comes the development of children and each child is different from the next. The DHS needs to realize that and give childcare centers some leeway when it comes to certain matters and not just set exact developmental milestones and expect all children to meet those milestones.
Guys you should sign because I'm trying to improve way teacher deliver there lesson because you guys might agree that some teachers at LCA are quite nice and lenient with homework ect
People should sign this because we have been oppressed with this mean, rude, and nasty security guard. We can change this. Just sign to make a change!
people should sign this to help others, being there will be less bullies to face and more people standing up.
We have recently learned that allegedly during the 2015-2016 school year, Frederick Douglass High School of Atlanta Public Schools will be receiving its seventh principal since 2001. Our present principal, Dr. Tony L. Burks, II is an asset to our school and community. We object to the disruption in the progress that has been made by the school under his leadership.
This petition is in response to hearing that our principal, Dr. Tony L. Burks, II, is allegedly being removed out of our school in less than 10 months in the position. To say that we are outraged is an understatement. Our school is beginning to develop again into a community atmosphere where our children are beginning to flourish both academically and socially. Our student morale has consistently improved and our teachers and staff have guided our children to achieve their utmost potential under Dr. Burk’s guidance. This is evident by 203 students who made the AAA Honor Roll that recognizes students for Academics, Attendance, and Attitude/Behavior. For the first time, Inclusion students were recognized for during this student recognition event. In addition, Douglass received its second consecutive School Improvement Grant (SIG) that requires exceptional leadership and management skills to ensure proper and appropriate administration of funds required to advance the students’ ability to improve.
Many of us have moved to attend or sent our children to Douglass because of the wonderful reputation that the school once enjoyed and consistently maintained. Now that we have an incredible leader in Tony L. Burks, we are outraged that we are in jeopardy of losing such a successful and hard-working leader who truly cares about our children. This is our children's education and we have only one chance to get it right. Dr. Burks has helped us to do that and do it in a dynamic, unparalleled manner. We are emphatically asking you to ensure Frederick Douglass High School students, teachers/staff, and the community receive the STABILITY required to create a cohesive wholesome learning environment. It is in the best interest of our children to maintain the consistent, challenging, and unparalleled leadership of Dr. Burks and build his team.
For more than thirty years, a stellar period of stability was upheld at Douglass with two principals. Since that time, the leadership of the school has changed six times. Frederick Douglass was the first inner city school in Georgia to become A National School Excellence and presently is listed as s Needs To Improve School on the State level. It is alleged that yet another leadership change is a part of your change agenda. The present principal of Douglass, Dr. Tony L. Burks, II came to Douglass with exceptional experience as an educator. He has worked uncompromising to improve Douglass High School.
We the undersigned supporters of Frederick Douglass High School are opposed to any decisions, which would further negatively impact the stability of the school. Most important, the students of the school admire and respect Dr. Burks. He is working to restore the school pride and spirit of a Douglass Astro. Your focus should be what assistance can you provide for him to do his job successfully. We pledge as support groups to work with him to this end. The Voice whom you have listened to is not indeed the voice of the majority. It is time to be transparent and accountable. Please note the names, affiliations and numbers. We request a meeting with our steering committees and the Superintendent and High School executives as soon as possible so that we can discuss the future of our school.
We call upon you as the Superintendent and Board Chair to value and prioritize principal retention efforts as much as principal pipeline development efforts, which research shows, are necessary for the sake of students and schools. Many studies show how important a good principal is to a school and Frederick Douglass deserves that!
Our water fountains are unacceptable. Plenty of them don't work and others are simply beyond unsanitary. The health and safety of members of the SAMOHI community is vital and should be prioritized. The water fountains need to be repaired, if not replaced ASAP.
Physical education is important because it can benefit you, make you stronger and healthier. I am trying to stop the lack of physical education in orphanages.
I was being bullied and went to the principle many times but nothing was done about it and when I asked to switch classes to get away from the kids I was denied that.
Upperman High School has honestly become a horrible school since her promotion as principal. She is discriminating against students and treats people unfair due to the popularity or lack thereof.
Becuase are world has become dark poverty and riches is the war to contraparies and predessors and we need to stop thinking money will get us anywhere but knowledge to stay alive and living with out money and try betterngbour selfs
I believe in the proper education of the students. There should be a revision in the K-12 schools in the Clear Creek ISD. Where is the Justice?
We the students of the CCISD district, demand equality in the K-12 system. We believe that secondary school should be from fifth to the seventh grade and then transition into high school. We declare independence from CCISD!
Continuing on with the of using fossil fuels will lead this planet into its demise. Each person needs to take responsibility and take action to improve the quality of the Earth we live on. We only have one planet and once all of its resources are used up, we have a big problem. Many Americans are uninformed on the environmental issues we are facing today and in the future. In fact, many still deny that climate change is actually happening. We already have to deal with the effects of human impact on the environment, but it's only going to get worse in the future. We need to educate the children of today now so they know how to live with the problems left by us that they must face tomorrow.
By signing this petition, you inform the U.S. government that we want the future generations that will be in charge of this country and will have to live through disaster if nothing is done, that they need to be educated on environmental issues. The federal government needs to enact legislation that requires all students enrolled in public school to take an environmental course during their high school careers. This class should consist of: showing the affects of continued fossil fuel use, an over-all explanation of climate change, information on what can and cannot be recycled, renewable energy, and how to be a sustainable citizen within their communities and globally.
With your signature,YOU can show your support and help our children have a cleaner, more sustainable future.
personal use and regulation of marijuana" for adults 21 and over, as well as commercial cultivation, manufacture, and sale, effectively regulating cannabis in a manner similar to alcohol.
Hemp benefits are denied. Hemp can be made into paper, paneling, plastics, clothing and thousands of other useful products. The highly nutritious seeds can be used to make flour, cooking oil and cattle feed.
This environmentally friendly plant grows without herbicides, nourishes the soil, matures quickly and provides high yields. It's the number-one biomass producer in the world - ten tons per acre in four months. It could be an excellent fuel-producing crop.
Criminalising marijuana lacks moral justification. A real crime implies a victim and a perpetrator. Can you imagine being jailed for robbing yourself? As insane as this sounds, our government has done the equivalent by making adult use of marijuana a crime. Only a depraved, corrupt government could invent a crime you commit against yourself.
Marijuana is effective medicine. There's overwhelming evidence that marijuana can safely relieve pain, nausea and vomiting caused by various illnesses. In fact, marijuana is patently safer than many commonly prescribed drugs.
Prohibition denies our most basic human right. Prohibition takes away our right of sovereignty over our own bodies and gives this power to government. Does any other human right make sense if we don't have sovereignty over our own bodies?
Billions in potential taxes go to drug dealers. Our cash-strapped government are being cheated out of billions that could be obtained by taxing and regulating marijuana like alcohol.
