New medical marijuana policy issued

• AP
The Obama administration will not seek to arrest medical marijuana users and suppliers as long as they conform to state laws, under new policy guidelines to be sent to federal prosecutors Monday.

Two Justice Department officials described the new policy to The Associated Press, saying prosecutors will be told it is not a good use of their time to arrest people who use or provide medical marijuana in strict compliance with state laws.

The new policy is a significant departure from the Bush administration, which insisted it would continue to enforce federal anti-pot laws regardless of state codes.

All medical drugs do is to elicit certain reactions in a person's body. The reactions come because the body is trying to fight the drug / poison. Tests by medical researchers have shown that the method that the body uses to combat a particular drug/poison, happens to be the same method the body uses to combat a particular symptom. That is why doctors prescribe certain drugs to combat certain symptoms.

Marijuana is a poison that does way better at combating symptoms than most drugs, but in a way similar to the drugs. This is part of the reason that the medical has lobbied marijuana into illegal status. It's so that they can make money prescribing their own drugs that they make in factories... drugs that don't work as well as marijuana, that do not cover nearly as many symptoms as marijuana, and are not FREE like marijuana.
