We have been on the forefront of breaking marijuana news and here is the smoking gun which creates without a doubt if there is a constitutional clause that proves once two/thirds or 34 states of the United States enacts laws for medical marijuana that an actual amendment has to be applied to the constitution on a federal level. We present to you the Constitutional Convention process and how it will force the government to respect the people’s rights to use marijuana, including state’s rights which represent the people. This is truly history in the making. A Constitutional Convention has never happened since the inception of the Constitution, but was created by our founding fathers to one day restore the freedoms we hold dear from an out of control government.
Our main goal has always been to show the beacon of light through the constitution and how it can be applied to our plight for health independence. If it wasn’t for Mark Levin and his best-selling New York Times book “The Liberty Amendments” we would not have this shining light today. We can for the first time apply this to the constitution for the people, by the people. Now that 23 states and Washington D.C. have legalized medical marijuana all we need is action through having all states legislatures file a constitutional convention application. This can for the first time be applied to all states through Article V of the United States constitution, which reads as set forth.
“The Congress, whenever two-thirds of both houses shall deem it necessary, shall propose amendments to this Constitution, or, on the application of the legislatures of two-thirds of the several states, shall call a convention for proposing amendments, which, in either case, shall be valid to all intents and purposes, as part of this Constitution, when ratified by the legislatures of three-fourths of the several states, or by conventions in three-fourths thereof, as the one or the other mode of ratification may be proposed by the Congress; provided that no amendment which may be made prior to the year one thousand eight hundred and eight shall in any manner affect the first and fourth clauses in the ninth section of the first article; and that no state, without its consent, shall be deprived of its equal suffrage in the Senate.” The founders knew that one day the federal government would over reach its boundaries of power over the people. That’s why they added article V to the constitution in-order to one day reign in on the out of control abuses due to big government and its courts. This is the smoking gun that states with medical marijuana can immediately sign onto which is called the Constitutional convention application process per their state through local activists organizations.
Congress will not have the authority to stop the process once initiated. Our founding fathers made sure that one day when the time was right we the people could take back our freedoms that we love so much and can never take for granted. Article V can be applied right now to all medical marijuana states. The first state to start this application process will have congress shaking in their boots. We can finally through redress of grievances apply this method immediately through real tangible action.
If it wasn’t for Mark Levin and his best-selling book “The Liberty Amendments” which called for a Convention of States we may have never known about how to apply this process to one of the greatest civil rights movements of our century. The Marijuana federal prohibition can finally end when an individual’s right to medical marijuana including recreational use from a states rights perspective can start creating protections for the people by the people on a federal level today. This strategy can be applied to all areas where the American people feel that certain freedoms need to be restored for a new renaissance society. We currently have twenty three states with legal medical marijuana and two for recreational use. Once thirty four states create laws through the Constitutional Convention process for medical marijuana or recreational, then the federal government and congress by law have to create a new amendment for the constitution to protect our civil liberties.
Marijuana prohibition is just like the Al Capone days. It is unfortunately worse than the devastation of alcohol prohibition. Millions have been put in prison for years because they enjoyed smoking small amounts of marijuana which is by far safer than alcohol. Millions have lost their lives battling cancer and other ailments from which marijuana could have saved their lives. We cannot allow this tyranny in disguise anymore. The truth, marijuana is the one plant out of tens of thousands of rare healing plants that we can all use to heal ourselves.

This is the source website from our inspired article conventionofstates.com , they articulate what Article V says, there are two methods to propose amendments to the Constitution.
1. Congress can propose amendments to the Constitution at any time if 2/3 of both houses of Congress agree.
2. A Convention of States can propose amendments if 2/3 of states submit applications for such a convention. These applications must all deal with the same issue (i.e., limiting the power and jurisdiction of the federal government).

The Convention of States Project
The biggest political story of the decade won’t be about gun control or immigration or health care. It will be about how the people—acting through the states—stopped the runaway train in Washington, DC.
The Convention of States Project gives Americans a realistic, legal, effective solution to the problems that threaten our nation. For the first time in a long time, Americans can do something about the spending and debt crisis, the crushing regulatory system, and the centralization of power.
Article V of the U.S. Constitution allows the states to call a Convention of States to propose constitutional amendments. These amendments could limit the power and jurisdiction of the federal government and force Congress to be fiscally responsible. Our mission is to urge and empower state legislators to call such a convention.
The time to call a Convention of States is now. Dissatisfaction with Washington hit an all-time high last year. Americans dubbed the 113th Congress “the worst ever,” and the ACA debacle left a bad taste in everyone’s mouth.
On top of all this, best-selling author Mark Levin called for a Convention of States in his book The Liberty Amendments. Levin’s book was the #1 bestselling book on Amazon.com and a NYT bestseller in every category for which it qualified. Clearly, Americans are excited about the chance to preserve liberty.
