This petition is brought forth to request remedial relief by rule of nullification as provided by the fourth Founding Principle in our Declaration of Independence. This petition prays for the nullification of the unconstitutional tax act and prohibition of medical marijuana and hemp. When government takes away our God given rights, We have the Right & the Duty to alter, abolish, or throw off such government. Nullification is thus a natural right of self-defense:

Thomas Jefferson said:

“… but where powers are assumed which have not been delegated, a nullification of the act is the rightful remedy: that every State has a natural right in cases not within the compact, (casus non foederis,) to nullify of their own authority all assumptions of power by others within their limits: that without this right, they would be under the dominion, absolute and unlimited, of whosoever might exercise this right of judgment for them…”

James Madison commented on the above:

“… the right of nullification meant by Mr. Jefferson is the natural right, which all admit to be a remedy against insupportable oppression…”

Medical marijuana has been observed recently to provide relief from neuropathy for diabetics which is a severely painful medical condition. Recent studies show that medical marijuana kills off cancer cells and provides protection from dangerous free radicals by being one of the worlds most useful antioxidants. Medical marijuana has the ability to provide relief from pain and studies say it makes your body "forget" its in pain. This is extremely helpful for people with migraines, headaches, or any body pain. This allows the person to operate normally, not in pain, and able to be joyful. Consumption is key to the relieving of pain. Studies show that everyone has a specific system in their body that is called an endocannibinoid system. The system is what makes a newborn baby hungry according to recent research. With the consumption of tetrahydrocannibinol, the chemical will bind naturally to the receptors covering our liver and up to the center of our mind. This is also much safer than the studied dangerous side effects of pharmaceuticals which actually leaves tiny damaging substances behind in the body after medicating. This makes some health problems like anxiety,depression, and bodily pain even worse than they were to start with. Medical Marijuana is also a powerful antioxidant which protects our cells from free radicals that are everywhere even in the air. Free radicals are dangerous, and studies show that all disorders and diseases stem from these. Hemp is able to be produced into valuable and highly sought after world resources. For example, oil can be made from hemp and oil is one of the top sought after resources in the world. Hemp can also be made into gas, transportation vehicles, houses, concrete, roads, plastic, solar energy, turbines, food,  and many household items that are produced from trees. Trees take multiple years to grow in comparison to the incredible plant hemp which is costlier and not as effective. Hemp takes a period of 6-9 months in which to grow. Hemp also has the medicinal benefit of consumption, whereas it contains omega-3s which is a natural mood elevator.  Hemp's omega-3 properties helps to increase senses of peace and well being.

Furthermore, we pray that law would create a welfare program for the needy sick people that cannot afford medical marijuana as a remedial medicine. The people of the state of Nevada would greatly benefit from training programs aimed at encouraging them where and how to acquire marijuana seeds, clones, plants, the cultivation process, harvesting process, and finally the consumption process. The cultivation process can be very difficult for low income families and individuals to pay for so it is also proposed to write into law a specific program in which to relieve the economic pressure including materials like soil, ph, water, tools, lighting, oscillation, food, vitamins, bug treatment and prevention, fungi treatment and prevention and finally proper nutrition. More money is being spent prohibiting these great items, and we stand to gain a substantial income and see a great economic stimulation when this prohibition is set aside allowing the cultivation, harvesting, continued research, and consumption of medical marijuana and hemp. In closing thought, we pray for resolution and that God help us overcome this unconstitutionally supported prohibition. Let us now reflect upon our nations history and heed the voices of our past and present leaders.

"Prohibition. . . goes beyond the bound of reason in that it attempts to control a man's appetite by legislation and makes a crime out of things that are not crimes. A prohibition law strikes a blow at the very principles upon which our government was founded"
- Abraham Lincoln

"Hemp is of first necessity to the wealth & protection of the country."
"An acre of the best ground for hemp, is to be selected and sewn in hemp and be kept for a permanent hemp patch."
- Thomas Jefferson's Garden book 1849

"Make the most of the Indian hemp seed, and sow it everywhere!"
-George Washington, The Writings of George Washington Volume 33, page 270 (Library of Congress), 1794

"When I was a kid I inhaled frequently. That was the point."
"The war on drugs has been an utter failure. We need to rethink and decriminalize our nation's marijuana laws." -Barack Obama, January 2004
- Barack Obama, U.S. President quote on Marijuana
