Misinformation about marijuana

 

Why the misinformation about marijuana, its use, history and benefits? Doctors and patients are discovering the curative and palliative benefits that traditional medicine has practiced for about 5,000 years. Who wouldn’t support legalization?

Except the drug lords who take in about $5 billion annually, banks that launder the cash and are too big to indict, politicians profiting from “political contributions,” enforcement agencies warring against drugs and confiscating property, even U.S. growers who don’t want things to change.

It is time to end prohibition.
