Please sign the petition by clicking on the "tack action" button above. It will allow you to send a message to President Obama and your Federal Representatives to Re-Legalize Marijuana immediately through a special joint session of Congress. After signing please send the link, to this page, to as many of your friends as possible. This could really end Marijuana Prohibition once and for all within a period of weeks.

If you have been reading my many articles at MERP headquarters you would know that I am an advocate for adult Americans to be able to simply grow all of the Marijuana that they require without any forms of taxation or regulation. While MERP does not forbid government taxation or licensing it treats "self cultivation" as a sacred, inalienable right.

You can learn much more about the merits of the MERP model through numerous articles and videos available at the following website:

The Marijuana Re-Legalization Policy Project (MRPP) = "MERP"

You can also watch the following video to get a comprehensive overview of what the MERP Model is really all about:

The Launching of the Re-Legalization Initiative

On November 21st, 2009 we launched the petition drive to immediately Re-Legalize Marijuana through full implementation of the MERP Model. This was done through a protest rally in front of the City Hall in Dearborn, Michigan. Barely a dozen people showed up for the protest despite sending out over 100 invitations to various Michigan Drug Reform Organizations including Michigan NORML Chapters, the Michigan Medical Marijuana Association etc.

I believe the reason that these organizations gave us the "cold shoulder" is because they really do not favor individual adults having the inalienable right to grow their own Marijuana. And this is quite understandable since, once legal, you will not have to purchase a "Marijuana Card" nor pay for a consult in order to a doctor to recommend that you be granted such a card. "Caregivers" -- those that provide Marijuana to Medical Patients -- are also not in favor of the petition because they will no longer be able to charge these outrages prices -- $300 to $500 dollars an ounce -- when ALL adult Americans have the right to simply "grow their own" for free, or for around $25 an ounce if they grow indoors under high intensity discharge lamps, fluorescents, or LED light arrays.

But despite being ignored by these groups the event was a resounding success given the mere 4 weeks of planning and the fact that we had no budget to promote the event. The Dearborn Press and Guide did a fabulous pre-story on the event a few days before it took place, effectively making thousands aware of this new initiative to Re-Legalize Marijuana.
