To the editor:
As a member of Wyoming NORML – Working to Reform Wyoming’s Marijuana Laws – and a petition carrier seeking signatures so we all may vote for or against industrial hemp and prescription medical cannabis in 2016, I have seen supporters outnumbering naysayers better than 2-to-1 in our state.
But disturbingly, many “supporters” are unwilling to sign the petition for fear of judgment, and many others are unregistered and therefore ineligible. Fear not; as a supporter you are in the majority for right.
Each petition page is seen only by limited NORML staff, the Secretary of State and 10 supporters of sick people; there is certainly no reason to fear them. It’s illegal for employers to bring consequences for political preferences; do not fear others.
To those who would negatively alter their treatment of another for supporting only the opportunity to vote on allowing tightly regulated medicine for sick people in our state, I ask you sincerely to reflect on your level of judgementalism.
If anyone allows bullying to keep them from what they know to be right, they are a part of the problem.
Standing for what is right has always cost the passionate, but those inflicting judgment are on the wrong side of history and contrary to God’s laws.
I am convinced that cannabis is a God-given medicine. If you disagree, please read Genesis 1, Mark 7 and 1 Timothy 4 and apply them to this issue before making your final judgment.
For details or to discreetly sign the petition, call (307) 587-5003.
