An open letter to the President

POTUS, deschedule marijuana and shorten the path to full legalization!

175 so far! Let’s get to 250 signers!

In the past month, you’ve passed a historic healthcare and climate bill, taken steps to protect Dreamers, and forgiven thousands per debtor in student loans. That just might be enough to hold the House and the Senate this November, but there’s one thing left you can do to guarantee it: Take the first steps toward decriminalizing marijuana. Not only is this smart politics, it’s 100% the right thing to do. You can initiate the process to remove marijuana from the schedule of the Controlled Substances Act with the stroke of a pen. This action would make it easier for businesses in states who have ended prohibition to flourish. Right now, cannabis businesses can’t operate across state lines and are financially insecure because they don't have full access to the banking system or the ability to write off their employees' healthcare costs. In short, descheduling marijuana would shorten the path to full legalization. Descheduling marijuana is incredibly popular with voters—right up there with saving the planet, fighting inflation, and fighting the student debt crisis. But more importantly, descheduling marijuana could be the issue that gets thousands of unlikely voters to the polls this year. Please do it now! Thanks.
