DEA to give monopoly on weed

Raw Story

A Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) proposal to reclassify the main psychoactive chemical in marijuana as a Schedule III substance would allow pharmaceutical companies to market the drug while still penalizing common recreational use, according to marijuana law reform advocates.

With its proposal, the DEA is responding to the demands of large pharmaceutical companies, he claimed.

Figures. Big Pharma is using its bought-and-paid-for government to change things so they can make money before we can make using FREE* or independently (aka 'outlaw'**) grown and marketed weed legal.

*It's free if you grow it yourself.
**No Wall St. involvement.
