Health Secretary Who Gave Cialis to Children Says There Is 'No Such Thing As Medical Marijuana&#

• http://www.dcclothesline.com, by Rachel Blevins

U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar made the statement during a press conference on opioids in Ohio, and his commentary left little room for the possibility that the federal government will reclassify cannabis and acknowledge its medicinal value anytime soon.

"There really is no such thing as medical marijuana," Azar said. "There is no FDA-approved use of marijuana, a botanical plant. I just want to be very clear about that."

Azar went on to reveal that in addition to refusing to consider cannabis as a treatment, the government plans to pour hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars into finding a pharmaceutical alternative for pain medications, now that an alarming number of Americans are dying from opioid-induced overdoses, and local governments are starting to hold Big Pharma accountable for its role in the epidemic.
