Letter Of The Week


Buddy Sims, in his letter “It ain’t medicine” (Nov. 1), wrote, “The
American Medical Association recommends that marijuana remain a
Schedule I controlled illegal federal substance.”

The AMA recently passed a resolution urging the rescheduling of
cannabis as a Schedule II drug in the Controlled Substances Act.

Further, Kevin Sabet, as part of the ONDCP, is mandated by law to lie.

Cannabis has been in the human pharmacopoeia for thousands of years
with no known case — ever — of a human overdose.

When cannabis was discovered to have cancer-fighting potential in
1974, the study was buried.

The U.S. government owns U.S. Patent 6630507, Cannabinoids as
antioxidants and neuroprotectants.

The U.S. government also distributes half a pound of pre-rolled
medical cannabis cigarettes to the four remaining patients enrolled
in the Compassionate Investigational New Drug program.

If science and truth were the standard, cannabis never would have
been made illegal in the first place.
