Barack Obama protects Big Pharma, Marijuana cures cancers
Cannabis has been linked to curing cancers and diverse diseases. Barack Obama received tons of campaign money from Big Pharma, which apparently would loose money if individuals by using marijuana could cure diverse cancers and diseases.
(NaturalNews) -- The battle continues to rage between the individual states and the federal government over the legalized cultivation and use of medical marijuana. Americans for Safe Access (ASA), the nation's largest medical marijuana advocacy organization, has now filed a lawsuit against the Obama Administration's Justice Department for aggressively trying to subvert state and local laws by shutting down legal medical marijuana dispensaries.
California, Oregon, New Mexico, Colorado, and a handful of other US states all have laws on the books that permit the growth, possession, and use of medical marijuana in some way, shape, or form. But the federal government still ignorantly classifies the natural plant as a Schedule I narcotic under the Controlled Substances Act, a tenet of the "War on Drugs" that has been a source of much conflict over the past several years.
This ongoing clash between state and federal law has led to numerous federal raids of medical marijuana growers and distributors, particularly in the State of California where medical marijuana laws are among the most lenient, and where the plant is most utilized. The federal government also routinely intimidates local officials to try to get them to ban medical marijuana dispensaries.
In a most recent raid, for instance, the US Department of Justice (DOJ) stormed Northstone Organics, a fully-licensed marijuana cultivation collective in Mendocino County, Cal. Agents reportedly cut down all 99 of the group's marijuana plants, and handcuffed the owner and his wife with zip-ties.
