CALIFORNIA: All Jacqueline Patterson wants for Christmas is for you to sign her petition aimed at getting the federal government to finally reclassify marijuana, which is currently a Schedule 1 drug that the Drug Enforcement Agency considers of no medical value and as dangerous as heroin.
Classifying pot a Schedule 1 “doesn’t make sense to me,” Patterson writes in an email.
“I suffer from cerebral palsy that causes muscle and speech spasms that make me stutter severely,” says the Bolinas resident. “Without medical marijuana I can barely speak. I know it works and that it lets me be the best mother possible to my children.”
