    U.S. decrees that marijuana has no accepted medical use

    Medical marijuana: U.S. rules that marijuana has no accepted medical use - latimes.com

    The decision by the DEA comes almost nine years after medical marijuana supporters asked the government to reclassify cannabis to take into account a growing body of research that shows its effectiveness in treating certain diseases.

    Marijuana has been approved by California, many other states and the nation's capital to treat a range of illnesses, but in a decision announced Friday the federal government ruled that it has no accepted medical use and should remain classified as a highly dangerous drug like heroin.

    The decision comes almost nine years after medical marijuana supporters asked the government to reclassify cannabis to take into account a growing body of worldwide research that shows its effectiveness in treating certain diseases, such as glaucoma and multiple sclerosis.
    What the hell is going on???

    Powerful lobbying, junk science, and continued low end law enforcement/legal subsidization. Nothing new....
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    The DEA obviously has more medical qualifications than medical experts. Well, that and they want better job security.

    Job security. Imagine how many of their heads would roll if it became legal?

    I think I've said this before, but because I am forced to take 12 pills a day that have very ugly side effects, among them being short term memory loss, if Kansas would legalize medical pot I could get off of three potentially dangerous prescriptions.

    But where would that leave Big Pharma?

    No you haven't. I'm really upset by this move. Alcohol is far more damaging than weed. Why don't they outlaw that? Yes, I know prohibition didn't work. I don't actually give a ****. Alcohol is bad, and it must be outlawed.

    3 of my siblings have Huntington's. My oldest brother is baked all day long. It's the only way he can temper the disease's impact on his movements and his rage.
