The extent of the federal government's hypocrisy on the issue of medicinal cannabis truly knows no bounds. Don't believe me? Just click here.
(Thanks to Huffington Post blogger Brinna for the link.)
US Patent 6630507 - Cannabinoids as antioxidants and neuroprotectants
Application: filed on 2/02/2001
US Patent Issued on October 7, 2003
Assignee: The United States of America, as represented by the Department of Health and Human Services
And there you have it. The same federal government that steadfastly denies pot has any medicinal value also holds the medical patents on the plant's various therapeutic cannabinoids. And they aren't the only ones who do.
NORML podcaster Russ Belville and I will be discussing this issue in depth – as well as the related issue of whether or not Big Pharma is behind the prohibition of pot – on the Daily Audio Stash next week.
Stay tuned.

anyone who encounters opposition from their state representatives regarding MMJ (and MJ) propositions, ammendments, laws, etc - should counter with this simple fact.
