Corporate Marijuanaon August 7, 2012 at 2:19 pm
If you’ve followed me for any length of time, you know that I don’t do drugs and never have. Not for any religious or moral objections; I just wasn’t interested, couldn’t be bothered and, as a teen, I was unusually immune to peer pressure. However, everyone around me did use drugs, particularly marijuana so i am quite familiar with what it does and what it doesn’t do. I know, for a fact, that it’s less dangerous and less addictive than both cigarettes and alcohol, both of which are legal to make and grow yourself.
Yet, the Obama administration is going hogwild to shut down every domestic source of marijuana even though it’s legal to sell with a prescription and the country is pretty much on board with legalizing it. But why?
Ah. I see.
A British company, GW Pharma, is in advanced clinical trials for the world’s first pharmaceutical developed from raw marijuana instead of synthetic equivalents_ a mouth spray it hopes to market in the U.S. as a treatment for cancer pain. And it hopes to see FDA approval by the end of 2013.
Sativex contains marijuana’s two best known components – delta 9-THC and cannabidiol – and already has been approved in Canada, New Zealand and eight European countries for a different usage, relieving muscle spasms associated with multiple sclerosis.
Interesting that that dispensaries all over the country are being shut down right about the time that corporations will be able to sell marijuana in pill form. I wonder how the chemicals in marijuana will legalized while still leaving the plant itself illegal to grow or sell? That squaring of the circle should be a wonder to behold. Can’t have people growing their own medicine, after all. No one makes money off of that!
And people wonder why liberals think corporations are evil? I’m extremely disappointed that the Obama administration is going along with this crap.
