The Amend It Mission is simply and only to deschedule Cannabis. Removing the Schedule 1 designation from Cannabis would allow it be regulated like alcohol, and the American States & Cities would then have the right to govern themselves as their communities so desire.
As authored and presented by former Alaskan Senator AND former Cannabis Sativa, Inc CEO Mike Gravel, the Amend It Resolution offers exactly that – proposing to the States that we deschedule Cannabis by amending the US Constitution. This specific and ingenious way of amending the Constitution has only been used one time – and that was to ratify the 21st Amendment, which ended prohibition. The Amend It Resolution does not contain any suggested legislature beyond removing the Schedule 1 rating from Cannabis, and it is the easiest, fastest, most economic path of least resistance to Cannabis legalization, bar none.
The Amend It resolution will need to be supported by 3/4 of Congress… Article V of the US Constitution allows for a proposed amendment to become a part of the Constitution if ¾ of the States ratify it – and that is exactly how Prohibition was repealed.
Now this is the important part: WE DON’T need approval of the President. Or the Attorney General. Or anyone, for that matter – to propose the Amend It Resolution… WE THE PEOPLE have the power to bring the mission of Amend It to Congress. For some crazy reason, this method of amending the Constitution has only been used one time! Don’t let them fool you — TOGETHER we have the power to direct the US Congress to CHANGE THINGS FOR GOOD!
When the Amend It Resolution is ratified, Cannabis will have its Schedule 1 designation removed. From there, Cannabis can be regulated like alcohol – taxed, governed and overseen at the State and Local levels. #legalizecannabis
