Our government is known to make a great deal of money off of arresting and forcing people who posses or smoke marijuana to spend time in jail or on CRO. That is the sole reason as to why they do not want to change marijuana from a Schedule 1 drug.
It makes absolutely no sense for marijuana to be a schedule 1 drug. Schedule 1 drugs are considered dangerous highly addictive drugs that contain absolutely no medial merit. It has been known for quite some time now that marijuana in fact does hold medical merit while it is a medical merit that for some reason is not recognized. There have ben countless studies done proving time and time again that marijuana in many different forms can be extremely beneficial to the health of all people in one way or another.
It can reduce the risk of colon cancer and even aid in the treatment of it. It has been shown that cannabis can kill cancer cells while even protecting normal cells something that most other things are unable to do. How is it that the cure for cancer is classified with things like heroin, methamphetamine, and bath salts?
