Government funded research halts the war on cannabis…for now. The war on drugs will continue to rage onward despite an overwhelming number of people voting for cannabis legalization, or for the drug to become decriminalized at the very least. The study in question is fully backed by the US government and published in The Open Neurology Journal, stating that the relief found within cannabis is sorely needed by any person in dire chronic pain, urging the government to issue clinical trials in order to subvert the DEA’s notion that cannabis is ineffective and useless medically.
Cannabis Legalization – What Seems to be the Problem Here?
Hundreds and hundreds of studies have been conducted in the past, revealing the healing powers of the plant, considered at the very least questionable by the standards of the DEA and the FDA even with concrete evidence portraying a positive light on the relationship between marijuana and cancer. The evidence suggests that the plant heals cancer, is far less deadly than normal pharmaceuticals, and that the benefits of medical marijuana could even be comprised on beneficial lung health with use. So then why is marijuana illegal? Why is cannabis legalization such a difficult change to reach? The DEA even continues to maintain the schedule I classification of marijuana and its derivatives, keeping it up on the list with cocaine, LSD, mescaline (peyote), and heroin. Not only should the country achieve cannabis legalization, but the drug has no place in this categorization.
