Petition Tag - saftey
This petition's goal is to show the voice of the people of the state of Maryland. By today's common knowledge, there is outstanding proof that Marijuana has been for many years misunderstood and people were uneducated and forced into believing that it was extremely harmful.
Most of these forced ideas were backed by our government. Which has made people believe even to this day that marijuana not just harms but even kills. Yet there are 0 documented deaths caused by the plant. By common knowledge half a million U.S. citizens die from Tobacco, no record of a death or even proof of the cause of cancer from marijuana. 71 people are killed each day in alcohol related accidents in the U.S. compared to the 0 from marijuana. I long for a safer place for me, my family, my friends, and even my children and their children and so on.
With the Decriminalization of Marijuana in the state of Maryland we could do our part to cut down on the mass amounts of deaths each year from alcohol and tobacco, save and put mass amounts of money spent on the "War on Drugs" to good use such as schooling, health care, etc. and save the mass amounts of people who don't deserve to be in jail the right they are being declined to live a normal life, see their husbands, wives, children and other family, and allow them to be FREE.
Do your part, make our state a safer and better place to live in.
OUR CHILDREN ARE AT RISK ON THEIR SCHOOL PLAYGROUND.
SEVERAL STUDENTS HAVE BEEN INJURED IN THE PAST AND THIS YEAR ON THE MONKEY BARS.
THESE INJURIES HAVE INCLUDED FACIAL LACERATIONS, BROKEN OUT TEETH, AND BROKEN BONES.

I am 14 years old and I am pursuing the career of Automotive Engineer.
I do not like the saftey of Ford vehicles especially the F-150 or the other problems with the Explorer and Focus.
I think Ford should stop and think about the saftey of their vehicles. They will loose a lot of business if they don't.
Please sign this petition if you don't want to see a loved one or friend die in an accident with a Ford Motor Vehicle.
I believe that paintball should be made legal in the U.S.Paintball should be legalized all over the United States.
It doesn't make sense for it to be illegal in some places and legal in others. A person could buy a paintball marker in a place it is legal to buy one, then go to a place where it is illegal and do vandilism. If a paintball marker is illegal, why not a baseball bat? They can do the same things, vandalize and kill Do you no why paintball is considered dangerous? i'll tell you, its people who go around and shoot houses and cars and people. It is a very safe sport if the right precautions are takin, such as wering the right saftey gear especially made for the sport, and chronographing your marker before play. People dislike the idea of paintball because people call them "guns," when infact they 're markers. Please sign this petition to help legalize paintball! Thank you.
In P&G's cosmetic & household product testing, caustic chemicals are forced into rabbits' eyes & applied to their raw, shaved skin. Laboratory workers lock the rabbits in restraining devices so they are unable to move while chemicals burn into their eyes & skin.
The rabbits are given no sedatives or pain killers to ease their suffering. They sometimes break their necks & backs in a desperate struggle to get away.
Those who survive are used again ... until they are finally killed.
P&G's innocent victims include rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters, & ferrets.
Even thought these tests are not required by law.
P&G insists on continuing this torture.
P&G claims to be a world leader in researching humane testing methods.
But the reality is that P&G spends more money in seven days on advertising than it has spent in 11 years on alternatives to painful & lethal animal tests.
These cruel & unnecessary experiments are paid for with profits from the sales of P&G products.
Every bottle of Pantene or Dawn,
every tube of Crest, every packet of Tampax tampons, every box of Tide, Bounce or Bold, every roll of Bounty,
& every can of IAMS or Eukanuba that is purchased means more money for painful experiments.
We think you would agree-- going without P&G products is a small price to pay to end animal suffering.
Fortunately, there are many safe, effective & humane alternatives to P&G's Tide of Torture.
Hundreds of companies develop, manufacture & sell safe consumer products without animal testing.
They use newer, more effective methods such as human cell cultures, chemical tests & computer models or simply use the thousands of ingredients that have been in use for years.
Million of Americans choose to purchase their consumer products from companies that do not harm or kill animals.
By buying cruelty-free, you support the growing trend toward kinder & more effective saftey testing. You send a message to P&G that when they hurt animals, they hurt their profits.
Your purchasing decisions make a difference!
P&G says animal tests provide product saftey.
"As an emergency room physician who has treated poisoning & exposures to dangerous products, I disagree with the contention that animal tests are necessary to determine the safety of cosmetic & household products.
Animal tests does not protect consumers from unsafe products. In my 15 years as an emergency room physician, I have never found the results of an animal test to be of any benefit in guiding the treatment of patients who have been poisoned.
Animal tests provide only the illusion of safety, because of the significant anatomical & physiological difference between animals & humans.
I call upon Procter & Gamble to join the ever-growing list of responsible companies that have declared an immediate moratorium on animal-based product testing."
