The federal government is currently pressuring the National Cancer Institute about the positive language on their website in regards to cannabis and cancer treatment. On the other hand, the DEA is currently raiding one medical marijuana dispensary after another in an attempt to intimidate officials in states like Washington, Arizona, Maine, Colorado, and Rhode Island. Yet all the while the DEA has granted 55 pharmaceutical companies licenses that give them the ability to grow cannabis in the US.
Do you see the hypocrisy? It’s a crime to do what many of you do in the privacy of your own home – like growing marijuana. On the other hand, pharmaceutical companies are getting DEA approved licenses to grow cannabis for medical reasons. But the irony is the DEA says cannabis doesn’t possess any medical properties.

The federal government and their hypocrisy is now fully on display. If you are sick and go to a dispensary to obtain medical marijuana, the DEA and the government believes you are wrong. Although they think it’s perfectly okay to take a pill like Marinol, which contains cannabis chemicals but no medicinal properties because they’ve been removed, but because it comes from a pharmaceutical company then it’s okay.
To make a long story short, the DEA likes raiding small dispensaries that cut into the profits of their compadres in Big Pharma, who donate large amounts of money to politicians that ultimately determine the budget of the DEA. This is mafia tactics through and through, yet our federal government is the one implementing these underhanded tactics.
Many advocates hope to eventually see a rescheduling of cannabis. But the DEA is in control of this decision and there’s no way they’re going to hurt Big Pharma in any way, shape, or form. The courts will need to force these changes because politicians are receiving too much money from the drug companies and they’ll never Institute any cannabis rescheduling changes on their own.
