The Fed’s know no limits in their quest for ultimate deceit and betrayal. And “they” the US Dept. of Health and Human Services were in fact awarded Patent # 6,630,507 in 2003 based on research done by the National Institute of Health, and was then assigned to the US Dept. of Health and Human Services.
Here is a legal document, in the public domain, which contradicts the US Government's specified position with regard to the classification of cannabis as a Schedule I substance having no "currently accepted medical use".
In their own words and conclusions the National Institute of Health states unequivocally that “cannabinoids are useful in the prevention and treatment of a wide variety of diseases including auto-immune disorders, stroke, trauma, Parkinson's, Alzheimer’s and HIV dementia.” The powers that would like to keep their foot on the throat of cannabis are loud and well-funded with big industry money, but they are not impervious to persistent effort.
I hope that in broadcasting this information about our Government held patent on Cannabinoids, as widely as possible and to as many people as possible...it can only help to change the public perception of medical cannabis.
