Medical marijuana is as healthy as medical LSD or heroin. At least, that’s what the U.S government thinks. On Thursday, they yet again denied the use of weed for medical purpose. This backs up their theory that the drug has no proven value despite the numerous scientific claims suggesting otherwise.
MARIJUANA THE SAME AS LSD AND HEROIN
In the eyes of the U.S. government, marijuana is the same as LSD and heroin. Forget the fact that 25 states and D.C. itself have passed laws allowing for medical use. No, that doesn’t count apparently. Instead, the government will keep pot in their Schedule I class and continue to arrest thousands of sick people for seeking treatment.
GOVERNMENT IGNORES SCIENCE REGARDING MARIJUANA. LSD AND HEROIN JUST AS DANGEROUS
The acting leader of the DEA claims that the science does not support marijuana right now. In his opinion, the facts that have been tested over again by respected scientists are not valid. That being said, the DEA has one policy change that might increase the research on pot in regards to epilepsy. Apparently, science is good enough in that particular illness, but not for anything else. Yet still, the drug remains on the criminal Schedule I despite efforts to move it to the less regulated Schedule II. America’s war on drugs looks to be in full force yet again.
U.S. GOVERNMENT CONFUSES CHILDREN. MARIJUANA, HEROIN, AND LSD USE TO RISE
The government is sending an interesting message here. Children won’t be able to tell the difference since the government lumps these drugs in the same category. They will take acid because to them, it’s just as safe or dangerous as pot. Perhaps they’ll shoot up heroin because they think it’s the same as weed. Obviously, heroin and LSD are far more dangerous than pot but the government lumps them into the same category. Those that don’t know any better will have to suffer the consequences.
