Petition for Rescheduling

FLORIDA PETITION to

ATTORNEY GENERAL PAM BONDI

REQUESTING REMOVAL of CANNABIS from SCHEDULE I 

Honorable Attorney General Bondi,

We, the undersigned, hereby join with the Florida Cannabis Action Network in asking you to exercise your authority in accordance with Florida Statute 893.0355 to reschedule cannabis.

Since 1996, 18 states and the District of Columbia have passed laws accepting the medicinal value of cannabis. Since 2009, two states, Oregon and Connecticut have rescheduled cannabis. The Iowa Board of Pharmacy overwhelming recommended the Iowa Legislature reschedule cannabis per their procedure.

On October 16, 2012, a federal court heard oral arguments for the federal rescheduling of cannabis. As the Federal Government considers what to do with the Federal scheduling, it is clear the Florida Legislature intended to quickly provide a method for rescheduling when there are beneficial medical uses.

This year, one Floridian, Irv Rosenfeld marks 30 years of prescription cannabis use provided through a Federal Research Program.

With these things in mind, we request that, in accordance to Florida law and in the spirit of equitable treatment for all, we ask you immediately remove cannabis from Schedule 1 and give it a scientifically accurate designation.

     Thanks for signing the petition! Removing cannabis from Schedule 1 will allow patients and doctors the freedom to pursue an alternative therapy where others may have failed. If your loved one had an ailment treatable with cannabis, what would you do to get them the best possible medicine?
