Marijuana is Medicine – Support Research
For almost 90 years the United States government has waged war on marijuana and the people who like to smoke marijuana (read Mexicans as marijuana is Spanish for cannabis). Making marijuana illegal has allowed government authorities, especially the police, to better control and intimidate us. Our Constitutional Bill of Rights has been made a mockery. The cannabis plant has medicinal qualities that we are just now finding out about. Read anecdotal stories from med marijuana patients
Silly but Interesting: “We’re the DEA and we’ll do what we want.” This explains why the DEA recently impounded 250 lbs of hemp seed on their way to the University of Kentucky for research into hemp’s potential applications. Although hemp does not have any psycho-active properties (it can’t get you high if you ingest the seeds). It took some real political arm-wrestling to get the DEA to expedite a controlled-substance permit. Two lawsuits against them may have influenced their common sense a bit, eh?
The DEA has other things to worry about. Like forgetting a man in a holding cell for 5 days without food, water or bathroom facilities. Seems a DEA agent brought him into the room, handcuffed him to a wall, then left. (And they say forgetfulness is a sign of dope-smoking!). The young man recently was awarded $4.1 million to compensate for his injuries and trauma.
Why you’ll never get rid of us. Long before Washington state started permitting growing marijuana under I-502 there have been thousands of home boutique growers and micro-growers who have been supplying the medical marijuana dispensaries and the notorious pot Black Market. The marijuana industry still needs us home growers and we’ll keep growing. .Read More.
