    http://www.medicalmarijuanacouncil.com taught me much about marijuana health benefits. It’s nice to see marijuana doctors represent real information instead of the bold faced lies that are spouted on behalf of large corporate interests. But what ticks me off, is that it’s the citizens money being used to put citizens in jail, and the citizens money that protects the large corporate interests. If only the cops would realize they are being used as pawns in a chess game that doesn’t benefit them, or their families, but rather the corporations that don’t give two hoots about them either.

    It would also seem that the policies with sativex and marinol would fall under the “unfair trade practices acts.”

    A year ago on YouTube channel DMTVLiFiChannel, using the techniques of deception management I indicated that the Atty. Gen. was opposing Pres. Obama’s policy concerning medical marijuana raids and that the President would in fact “come in line with their policies” against the worlds presses claiming “US attorney general Eric Holder: ending medical marijuana raids now US policy”

    While it was unveiled on that rather tongue and cheek presentation, the reasons were not. As stated money is no doubt a large part. But I suspect there are far more dire issues at hand. We have all the liberties of citizens – unless you are a criminal. Making popular activities a criminal act promotes greater govt control over a larger segment of the population, promotes obedience rather than free thinking, supports alcohol production and so much more. This is not an issue of rationale of the subject matter, but a tool to an end (or more than one).

    I find it amazing that the government claims there has not been enough testing of cannabis, (which they restrict), and claim it has no medicinal merit, and yet all the while the department of Health and Human Services holds US patent # 6630507 (on THC) which states that THC is worthwhile as a neuroprotectant against several diseases. Perhaps they just want to license that technology to their friends in big pharma so more money can be made that way, while preserving the right to criminalize and imprison folks who take matters into their own hands. Where’s the transparency on this issue? What is the real issue? Undoubtedly money; the jobs program that has been expanded for law enforcement and incarceration industries, and the unwillingness to admit when something has gone very wrong. How can PEOPLE continue to justify a penalty far worse than the imagined, (victimless) offense? This is all a medical, (not a criminal), issue, and it’s about time we start treating it as one!

    Of course the DEA thinks cannabis is a hard drug. As Obama & congress wrestle with budget cuts, I’m sure the DEA is afraid of losing the billions of dollars we pi$$ away every day on the phony “war on drugs”. They want to protect their overly inflated budget.
