National Reform Of Medical Marijuana sign now

Cannabis remained in the United States pharmacopoeia until 1941, removed only after Congress passed the Marihuana Tax Act which prohibited physicians from prescribing it to severely ill people.
Modern Research suggests that Cannabis is valuble for the aid of many medical illnesses: including pain relief from nerve damage,nausea,spasticity, glaucoma, and movement disorders. Marijuana is also a powerful appetite stimulant for people suffering from HIV, The AIDA wasting syndrome, or dementia. Newer research suggests that the medicinal properties of Cannabis may protect the body against types of malignant tumors(1) and are neuroprotective(2).
As of now, more than 60 International and US health organizations support immediate legal access to medical marijuana prescribed by a physician to patients. A Harvard study found that 44\% of Oncologists had advised Marijuana therapy to their patients.50\% responded that they would do so if Marijuana was legal.
So, members of Congress, I might ask: Why are we depriving so many ill americans the right to use medicinal marijuana? Isn't it time we give these people the treatment they need?
We, the citizens of the United States Of America, are proposing that Marijuana be reclassified under the Controlled Substances Act as a Scheduel II drug so physicians can legally prescribe it to those who need it.
