The Sensei Seed Company is fairly popular in the cannabis world. They have been a loud voice in fighting hard for reform on marijuana. They regularly embrace marijuana culture above and beyond what even the most active enthusiasts do. Sensei Seeds also supplies some of the most impressive genetics around. Sensei recently tweeted an important message for those interested in helping to sway cannabis reform in the right direction.
“Sensi Seeds would like to highlight a petition that could put the European cannabis legislation on the agenda of the European Commission. The initiators of the petition are making use of their right to submit citizens’ initiatives to the European Commission and if the petition receives 1 million signatures, the European Commission will be required to vote on cannabis legalization.”
In its current state, the European Union’s policies on cannabis vary from one end of the spectrum to the other. While some of the member states seem to tolerate some forms of marijuana possession or usage, others continue to push criminal penalties and administrative sanctions. In essence, cannabis is still a crime in Europe and we would all like to see this change.
A recent report titled “European Drug Report 2013: Trends and developments” shows that up to 77 million European adults have used cannabis at some point in their lives. If approximately 30% of those Europeans signed the petition, it would be more than enough to send a message that cannot be ignored to the European Parliament.
Please take the time to sign the petition here. If you aren’t in one of the required countries, please forward this on to one of your social networks so your friends in those countries can use their voice in this important matter.
