DEA Upholds Federal Marijuana Monopoly, Obstructing Privately-Funded FDA ResearchThe DEA's refusal to break NIDA's monopoly on the supply of marijuana for research has direct implications for non-government-funded research. On April 28, 2011, the FDA cleared MAPS' proposed study of marijuana for U.S. veterans with chronic, treatment-resistant posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). That same day, MAPS submitted the protocol for review by the Public Health Service (PHS) and NIDA, a procedure required for marijuana research because of the NIDA monopoly (but not for studies of any other controlled substance). Almost four months later, NIDA is still silent about whether it will agree to sell MAPS marijuana for the study. Without it, the study cannot go forward.
The DEA's protection of NIDA's monopoly has blocked privately funded medical marijuana research for four decades. Until the Obama administration instructs the DEA to change its tune, state-level medical marijuana reform efforts are the only way for patients to get safe and legal access to the medicine their physicians recommend.

Cannabis varieties thrived for ten to twelve thousand years - providing all the things people needed. Cannabis fibers was used by everyone, making things for themselves. Everyone was a creator and a manufacturer - and cannabis knowledge evolved slowly but surely everywhere on earth.
Yes, it was this plant that led us to all the modern knowledge of today - and what has the corrupt government done to say thank you?
That’s right, they have outlawed it - They have stolen all the knowledge that has taken thousands of years to evolve into useful knowledge, and given it to the petrochemical industries to misuse and abuse the world with ever since.
Power and greed are both addictive to the extent of insanity.
Police arrested an estimated 858,408 persons for cannabis violations in 2009. Of those charged with cannabis violations, approximately 89 percent were charged with possession only. An American is arrested for violating cannabis laws every 30 seconds.
