Sign the Petition to Remove Debbie Wasserman Schultz as DNC Chair Over Cannabis Hypocrisy

FORTUNE Most Powerful Women Summit - Day 2Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Chair of the National Democratic Committee (DNC), is completely opposed to legalizing cannabis, referring to it as a “mind-altering substance” comparable to heroin. Despite this opposition, Schultz receives thousands of dollars in donations from the alcohol industry, including from lobbying groups such as Bacardi USA, the National Beer Wholesalers Association and the Wine & Spirits Wholesalers of America.

Due to this hypocrisy, we urge you to sign the petition calling for Schultz’s immediate removal as Chair of the DNC, to be replaced by someone more supportive of legalizing cannabis, which is supported by 58% of Americans according to the most recent Gallup poll.

You can find the Change.org petition by clicking here. The petition is directed towards President Obama, who is unlikely to make the change himself, though it will help bring attention to the issue and will hopefully lead members of the Democrat National Committee to vote for her removal once she’s up for reelection.

    Bernie Sanders has a bill in house to remove marijuana from the controlled substance list. Then any state that wants to legalize it can and all doctors would not have to be tightly regulated for prescribing it and all states can do research on it. Bernie Sanders is the only true progressive running for president. He is the only honest candidate that has our best interests in heart. He is the only candidate that wants corruption out of our government. He is the only candidate that has taken actual steps at this time to end marijuana prohibition. If you live in a closed primary state, make sure you are registered democratic in time so you can vote for him in the primary. Make sure you caucus for him. #Bernie2016 #FeelTheBern #WeWantBernie

    Fuck this country’s discrimination against cannabis users. The law exists to serve and protect not to jail and fine for living in a way disagreed upon by someone else. Cannabis users HURT NO ONE and feel as though they are improving their own lives. Who can take that away from them? Uncle fking sam because our laws are oppressive(and racist) AND the law-makers are PISS POOR MORALLY. Thank you, stupid selfish heartless law-enforcers for ruining a slue of innocent lives in the name of your “great” country.
