Government Hypocrisy at It's Best... Or Worst

You probably have a basic understanding of how modern medicine works: People have a yearly checkup, take medicine when they're sick, get a cast if they break a bone, etc. But in recent years other approaches to healing have risen in popularity. Many of these "alternative" treatments have been around for thousands of years. The term "alternative medicine" is used to describe healing treatments that until recently have been part of conventional medical training — treatments like acupuncture, massage therapy, or herbal medicine.


Now many Western medical schools are starting to teach these medicine techniques and theories. Some hospitals and doctors are supplementing their regular medical care with alternative techniques. Many patients and health care providers use alternative treatments together with conventional therapies. This is known as complementary medicine. At Canna Kitchen we believe that both conventional and complementary medical treatments can be of benefit to patients. We pride ourselves on our compassion for patients with chronic diseases wh can truly benefit from the use of Medical Marijuana.


So then why does the US governement and many world governments have marijuana classified as an illegl substance. The DEA has classified marijuana as a Schedule I drug; which by definition means that marijuana/THC/cannabis "have no currently accepted medical use in treatment in the United States." Really? Then why is it that on October 7, 2003 the same United States Government as represented by the Department of Health and Human Services was granted a U.S. Patent (#6630507) on any and all uses and applications of: Cannabinoids as antioxidants and neuroprotectants? These are clearly beneficial medical uses.


In other words, THE GOVERNMENT ALREADY OWNS THE ORGANIC THC OIL BY FORCE... and now THEY OWN THE SYNTHETIC THC OIL BY PATENT... along with any and all combinations of the beneficial compounds found in cannabinoids. So the question must be asked that if cannabis has a tremendous variety of medicinal values and applications specific and provable enough to be granted a U.S. Patent, then why does the Judicial Branch of our government continues to classify cannabis as a Schedule 1 Controlled Substance?!
