According to the new code effective January 13, 2017, both patient and caregiver will be criminally liable for possessing, purchasing or being under the influence of a non-psychoactive substance.
Any substance extracted from the plant genus, Cannabis, like CBD and related medications for patients suffering from multiple sclerosis, diabetes, cancer, and hundreds more diseases and illnesses will be in violation of Federal law and therefore subject to arrest – I suppose as long as those patients are physically capable of surviving arrest and incarceration. Clearly, they are convinced that they know what’s best for all of us.
Our benevolent DEA further proclaims, “For practical purposes, all extracts that contain CBD will also contain at least small amounts of other cannabinoids. However, if it were possible to produce from the cannabis plant an extract that contained only CBD and no other cannabinoids, such an extract would fall within the new drug code”
Earlier, on August 9th, 2016 in anticipation of the Fed’s sociopathic bent toward protecting their drug rackets and requisite prohibition structure, The 9th U.S. Circuit Court “barred” The Feds (Justice Department) from spending taxpayer dollars on the prosecution of its own citizens who are by definition medical marijuana defendants following their own respective State laws.
Although this order by the Justice Department has the effect of rendering their brother DEA temporarily impotent (in theory anyway) from further prosecutions, it does nothing to keep the DEA or other rogue agencies from arresting anyone for possession, medical use or otherwise. They just hold them against their will and harass them. Regardless, there are far too many American citizens who clearly should be protected by this ruling, yet are in fact imprisoned.
What do you say about a Federal government that has more respect for a group of useless foreign bureaucrats than it does for its citizens? I’m talking about my cousin’s son with epilepsy, my friend with cancer, your brother with PTSD… need I say more?
All my life I have cherished our Forefather’s sacrifices and brilliant judgment when it came to forming our United Federation of States. I marvel and am truly grateful for the sacrifices our Armed Forces and Police brothers and sisters have made for the sake of preserving our fundamental rights.
And I have also watched as we citizens let the Federal Government get away with murder. What’s it going to take for us to Just Say No!!
