I mistakenly believed the Drug Enforcement Agency listed marijuana as a schedule 1 substance because of sound scientific proof. Surely, they must have quality reasoning as to why marijuana is in the category of the most dangerous drugs that have "no accepted medicinal use and a high potential for abuse."
They didn't have the science to support that claim, and I now know that when it comes to marijuana neither of those things are true. It doesn't have a high potential for abuse, and there are very legitimate medical applications. In fact, sometimes marijuana is the only thing that works.JAMES: The American government hasn't just misled the people about marijuana. It has shamelessly lied about the "dangers" of marijuana. We trust our doctors to give us the truth about drugs, and medical care, but if even our doctors are being lied to by our government, how can we respect, and/or trust, the Drug Enforcement Agency, at all?
The American public is waking up to the lies--to quote, "The Who," we won't be fooled again!! Nearly half of all American states have legalized marijuana for medicinal use--and now, two states have legalized it completely. We have reached the tipping-point and we aren't going back now. The DEA and others in law enforcement should work with us to make the transition from prohibition to legalization and regulation rather than fight it kicking-and-screaming the whole-way.
