Target: Ohio Governor John Kasich
Goal: Applaud legalization of medical marijuana.
Medical marijuana is now legal in yet another state as an Ohio bill has become law. With Governor John Kasich’s signature, the new law allows the drug to be prescribed for those in need.
By signing this bill into law, Ohio legislators have demonstrated an admirable commitment to progressive medical treatments. Long shunned by doctors because of its illegal recreational use, medical marijuana has been enjoying a renaissance as study after study extols the benefits of the drug while listing virtually zero negative side effects. Public support has also been growing in favor of the drug, as seen in this ForceChange petition.
Ohio becomes the 25th state with a legalized medical marijuana program, meaning America is now halfway to complete and total legalization of this beneficial drug. Sign the petition below to thank these legislators for recognizing scientific progress and allowing this drug to help create a healthier society.
Dear Mr. Kasich,
I am writing to express my gratitude for the recent legalization of medical marijuana in Ohio. By drafting and signing this bill, you and your fellow legislators have taken an enormous step toward ending a dangerous myth and providing much-needed medical assistance to millions of American citizens.
Medical marijuana has long been ignored or even shunned by the medical community because of its illegal recreational use, but recent studies continue to prove that the drug has numerous benefits and very few, if any, negative consequences. Your approval of this bill is extremely encouraging, and I can only hope the 25 remaining states follow your lead and make this drug legal. Thank you for your progressive leadership.
