This petition is part of a new system that was just set up in Canada, to allow citizens to present an issue to Parliament through an online petition.

Many members of the cannabis community worked together to craft this official petition, and make sure it was as inclusive and comprehensive as possible.

Green Party Leader Elizabeth May has sponsored our petition, so that we have official standing in Parliament.

Our petition calls for an immediate stop to arrests for cannabis possession, and outlines the pathway for legalization in Canada.

We received over 6,000 signatures in our first week online, and people can keep signing up until June 9, 2016.

We’d like to get 50,000 signatures in total. This would give us more support than any other online petition, and keep the pressure on the Trudeau government to act quickly, stop arrests, and get going on legalization.
