You're wasting your time with this petition man. Smoke a joint and try to feel better about it.
Its not even my petition I just took 2 seconds to sign it. I honestly don't care if anything happens as a result, at least I tried.

If this isn't an issue you are concerned about that tells me alot about yourself. It means you are unwilling to change, and unwilling to stand up for yourself. This is a major problem. You may not realize it now. When the world goes to shit because we ruined it then you'll realize, or you might die before that, but your children will have to deal with it, that is just selfish. We could improve so much in this world but only if we are willing to realize the flaws in our ways and correct them.
For those of you that don't even smoke weed let me put this in a way you can understand.
We all have hobbies right? Is your hobby safe, both for you and for others? Do you enjoy it? If you answered yes to all of the above what if that hobby was all of a sudden made illegal for some stupid reason and the government wasted hundreds of billions of dollars each year enforcing it. That would be pretty stupid right?
