    Sounds like doctors, pharmacists etc. are readying to step in to seize control (read profit) from cannabis after fighting it down tooth and nail for decades. Natural cannabis can be, and is, utilized by people without the interference of the ‘medical professionals’ and needs to be returned to its rightful place among all the other species of plants by de-scheduling the plant and repealing all laws against it. Denying people the right to fully utilize this plant in whatever way they wish is totally unconstitutional. Just say no to tax, unnecessary regulations, limits and corporate takeover.

    It’s not about smoking a joint and getting high, it’s about the cannabinoids not THC. The THC is removed or should be in medical Marijuana. It’s the misinformed that believe it’s an excuse to get high.

    • sage says:

      It can be about smoking a joint and getting relief from a myriad of ailments though (god forbid anyone was to experience euphoria, happiness, laughter and a general feeling of wellness), many people use it this way (like Montel Williams who smokes herb to treat his MS) and are justified in doing so if they wish. All you are doing is promoting the pharmaceutical companies and their minions and their narrow view which places control and profits over human lives. Only the brainwashed and mis-informed would believe removing THC is sensible or necessary or that you need a doctor to prescribe it.

    • YADON says:

      THC is a canbabinoid and an important part of the medical properties.

      • Time Shall Tell says:

        Quoted from Green Relief web page “you cannot get high from CBD,5, 6 which is the main cannabinoid in medical marijuana. CBD is used to treat numerous conditions and diseases. Evidence suggests that it’s effective in the treatment of pain,7 epilepsy,8 schizophrenia,9 and many more conditions. As medical marijuana, it’s used in oils, skin patches, and gels in addition to being smoked. CBD is considered safer than THC.”

          THC and CBD along with all the components of cannabis work in concert, it’s called the entourage effect. THC and cannabis itself is safer than table salt and sugar so…

    • The Original Truth™ says:

      THC is Tetrahydrocannabinol. Notice the C is for Cannabinol which is a cannabinoid. The THC is where the C comes from. Without the Tetrahydro you wont get high but this is a side effect most patients don’t mind especially when in extreme pain. Patients can get cannabis or it’s extract with only CBD which is another cannabinoid in cannabis that wont get you high but most patients rather the other. You seem to be the one misinformed because it is about getting high.
