Patent US6630507 “Cannabinoids as antioxidants and neuroprotectants”

US Government hypocrisy knows no limit: “Under U.S. federal law, marijuana is defined as having no medical use. So it might come as a surprise to hear that the government owns one of the only patents on marijuana as a medicine. The patent (US6630507) is titled “Cannabinoids as antioxidants and neuroprotectants” and was awarded to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) in October 2003.” Get it? How many critically ill patients have been forced to suffer while a completely natural therapeutic alternative has been withheld from them? How many billions of dollars have gone to Big Pharma for synthetic drugs that have horrible side effects while an herb that can grow in your garden has been prohibited? How many lives — predominantly minorities — have been ruined by the senseless prosecution of cannabis possession as a Schedule I drug? How many billions of dollars has the government wasted losng the “war on drugs” while prohibition has empowered violent criminal organizations? Legalizing cannabis is essential for human rights, civil rights and common decency. The issue is clear. The time is now.
