At what point will the government stop ignoring benefits of marijuana?


Marijuana is used to treat many health issues. Studies are showing it is helping with everything from PTSD to arthritis. Yet the federal government continues to ignore it. In most of our country it is still illegal. At what point will they have to stop ignoring the facts?

    Yep! Follow the money.

    Pharma and the medicos are in it for the money (profits). Corporations have a fiduciary duty to increase profits.

    A cure for anything like cancer would kill profits. And people kill for lots less than billions

    One more thought: if someone had a cure for cancer, that would threaten Big Pharma's billion dollar profits. Do you think anyone would kill for a billion dollars? Walk away from corporations! Don't feed the source of greed.

    Amen, JThomp...and think of the positive & good that could be done with the "billions" of those saved dollars you mention....such as, rehabilitation programs in the prison system? Support Systems for the "victims" of crimes?

    Perhaps those "street vendors" are working for the government. The CIA has been found to be one of the largest drug dealers in the world, to finance their black ops projects.
