Big Pharma Poised To Take Over Marijuana Industry

So, a report came out that says,

""While there may be medical value for some of the individual components of the cannabis plant, the fact remains that smoking marijuana is an inefficient and harmful method for delivering the constituent elements that have or may have medicinal value," the report says""

Then there's this:

"Sativex is the brand name for a drug derived from cannabis sativa. It's an extract from the whole plant cannabis, not a synthetic compound. Even GW defines the drug (.pdf) as marijuana.

Yet as the FDA is poised to approve the drug for Big Pharma, state-licensed medical marijuana dispensaries that provide relief for thousands of Americans are under attack by other federal agencies.

The National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML) has warned just as much, claiming that federal authorities may be looking to shift policy slightly, if only to legalize marijuana-based medicines for Big Pharma only, which could step in and potentially eradicate the medical marijuana market."

Thus the solution to the war on drugs was found. Just empower Big Pharma to do as they please regarding illegal drugs, and they will PERSONALLY stamp out any one trying to elbow in on their markets. They will SINGLE HANDEDLY destroy local marijuana growers and take over the industry overnight.

So yea, its okay to let corporate interests control our lives, but not farmers trying to make a buck. Love America. No, scratch that. I love human nature.
