There’s a wonderful story in Bloomberg Business Week about a real grow store being opened in Washington, D.C. Not the kind of grow store where, if you say “pot,” you are asked to leave. An unapologetic grow store called We Grow. That’s the definition of in your face. When people display that kind of courage we know change is close. I hope you will read the story, which is interesting and well written. I want to focus on just one small part of the story, then I’m going to bitch.
Near the end of the story the federal government gets its’ say: “Rafael Lemaitre, spokesman for the Office of National Drug Control Policy, issued a statement saying science and research — not politics — should drive the approval process for medicine, and to date the “smoked form of marijuana has not met the modern standard” established by the Food and Drug Administration.” That’s it, I’ve had enough.
The reason there is no “science and research,” Mr. Lemaitre, is because your government would not allow it to happen. With the exception of the University of Mississippi research facility, the federal government is responsible for there being no “science and research,” which NOW you bemoan the lack of. So shut up, liar.
Your lies have failed. The time has come to re-legalize. Join us. You do not need to be afraid. You used fear and lies to make cannabis an outlaw. We are using the truth to set cannabis free. Our truth will overcome your fear.
I do think you would enjoy the story, which is here.
