What seems to be your problem with the reality that cannabis can be used medicinally for a wide range of diseases? Why do you deny its medical applications?

Medical cannabis

Medical cannabis
I do not deny it, I am just pragmatic about it. Since the federal government has kept it as a schedule 1 drug, it makes it extremely difficult to do any vetting of its uses. No one has ever overdosed from being high. That has been vetted and is honest and to the point. You can not with any conscious at all justify alcohol and say weed is bad at the same time. Can not be done because the recreational use of weed has been well vetted.
Thanks from Sabcat

The core of the problem:
The Schedule I classification of cannabis in the US makes the study of medical cannabis difficult there. As of 2016, most cannabis-related research in the United States is on components chemicals in the cannabis plant, and not on the whole plant. To do research on the effects of the whole plant, a medical research organization would need to propose a project then submit their proposal for United States government review. For the research to proceed, the Food and Drug Administration would need to approve the plan for that project, then the Drug Enforcement Administration would need to grant a Schedule I Controlled Substances permit for research, then the National Institute on Drug Abuse would need to provide the actual cannabis which would be studied. Any of the involved government agencies could halt a cannabis research project at any time, and consequently, medical research on cannabis has not advanced in the United States for many years.

there is still research being done, in america and elsewhere. remember in some places weed is legal. but research is slow, any findings need to be repeated by others before anyone will take them seriously, its going to be a while before any weed related treatments are mainstream.

I agree with that. Your statement now has the Coke seal of approval upon remittance of the filing fee for the seal.
Thank you

People are self-medicating, comparing notes and experiences.

Cannabis works and works better than state-approved pharmaceuticals in some cases. A friend has an inoperable back injury. Cannabis helps him immensely with his chronic pain.

The more focused applications, such as removing plaques associated with Alzheimers disease, will take some time, primarily so pharmaceutical companies can isolate and "patent" specific compounds in whole cannabis.

We all can agree on this. It's all about the money trail.
Thanks from Sabcat

and now they are trying to make kratom a schedule one.


these laws have absolutely noting to do w/ public safety and everything to do w/ the state controlling the people. these are nothing more than plants. even booze has to be manipulated from its natural state to have the desired effects. now beer and wine can be achieved naturally but not spirits. also booze is literally deadly and that is legal. imnot sure but i don't think you can OD on opium and if you can i think it takes a lot of effort. fucking people die from booze every day.

i do agree w/ cokes point though. why beat around the bush about the medical advantages of pot. the point should be is that it is a plant one that is basicly harmless and the state should have no say what adults do w/ it unless it is causing harm to other people. remove the criminal aspect of it and people can use it for whatever remedy that they see fit.

next thing we will be outlawing apple cider vinegar because a few people drown in it.

I bought a little bit of Kratom from the web and it is high power Kratom and expensive. Kratom don't do much for me except make my throat hurt when smoking. High power pot don't make my throat hurt and makes me intelligent with intellect.
