The War on Drugs

The World Health Organization’s new report on cannabidiol (CBD) found that the compound (which does not produce any kind of high — and may actually counteract the psychoactive properties of THC) is not addictive, has no potential for abuse, and shows promise in a number of medical trials.

So of course Trump’s Drug Enforcement Agency wants to class it as a Schedule I narcotic, reserved for substances with “a high potential for abuse”; “no currently accepted medical treatment use in the U.S.”; and “a lack of accepted safety for use of the drug or substance under medical supervision.”

We’d note that CBD is legal in a number of states, to include our own Missery. We would also mention that Misserians tend to own quite a lot of guns. The combination of the preceding might make for something of a mess should lil’ Jeffy Sessions send in his jackbooted thugs in order to shut that whole thing down. 1

Something to say...?
