BATON ROUGE, LA – Legalize Louisiana is calling all citizens to the Capitol on Monday to ensure, from the start, that this year’s legislature ends cannabis prohibition, for health and justice in Louisiana. Responsible citizens will bring the research and testimony exposing the current laws and policies as unjust, illegal, unscientific and irrational, unconstitutional, inhumane, and unacceptable. Lawmakers will be drawn clear solutions based on the promised rights to peace and prosperity for all.
Community members will gather at the Capitol steps at 8:30 AM, to share their testimonies and pleas for justice, and will on regular business, at the legislature’s opening, submit facts and researches attesting to the abuses now being permitted under color of law. Nothing short of due diligence will be allowed; law and policy must respect the highest and most basic natural and common, State and Federal Constitutional, and human rights to use cannabis for any bona-fide medical reason.
Science reveals that all human beings have an endocannabinoid system; the most cutting-edge researchers now characterize cannabis a necessary dietary element. Louisiana’s medical cannabis rights are to allow one to produce medicine without hindrance, to grow the plant for one’s family and loved-ones as a natural healing herb, according to one’s compassion and wisdom as a human being. Medical cannabis should never be bought, sold, or taxed.
Louisiana’s law and policy makers have shown willingness to lessen some penalties for marijuana-law victims; let them administer justice correctly. No more penalties will be tolerated for cannabis use; no forced “marijuana addiction treatment” programs are needed. The end of state abuse of law-abiding innocents is needed.
Hemp cultivation will bring prosperity to Louisiana’s farmers who may convert, on-site, raw materials into medicines, clean premium fuels, fibers, coals, building materials, plastics, and much more. Moving forward, local and state governments may seek to fairly tax and regulate certain commercial cannabis products with input from all stakeholders.
By Calendrical Virtue, Louisiana deserves to enjoy the full restoration of her natural freedom and glory by Oct 1st, which would otherwise mark our eightieth year of an insane, self-destructive program of cannabis eradication. This will require due diligence and best practices, only, from government, from scholars, from all professionals from all disciplines, from all persons from all walks of life. Those unable to attend the Capitol on Monday are also urged to be in continual frequent contact with the officialdom until freedom and sanity are restored.
