I think we can all agree at this point that the DEA and, most if not all, agencies of the U.S. government are not in the business of following and supporting freedom or the will of the people. Or, for that matter, science, morality, and general common sense.
The DEA has again declined to reschedule or deschedule cannabis. Why is this? I am not going to attempt to answer that question here, but it is a significant question that requires objective thought and investigation.
The idea that cannabis will ever be any thing other than a highly controlled pharmaceutical product in the eyes of the federal government is unrealistic. As history has proven, year after year and decade after decade, there will be no compromise.
A recent report by researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities has concluded, in a peer-reviewed study, which will be taught at these universities in September, says: "The central point that emerges from our research is that economic elites and organised groups representing business interests have substantial independent impacts on US government policy, while mass-based interest groups and average citizens have little or no independent influence."
And there you have it. It should come as no surprise that cannabis has not been descheduled. This is just a confirmation that we wield ZERO power with the government and it's appointed agencies.
Just to add insult to injury, here is a link to the patent owned by the United States Dept of Health and Human Services, PROVING that cannabis has unquestionable medicinal qualities and attributes. Guess someone didn't get the memo.
Time to stop begging for our freedom to be returned. Time to TAKE IT BACK.
