Marijuana is illegal under federal law. It is a Schedule 1 controlled substance, making possession and distribution of the drug a federal felony. Unless and until the law is repealed, doesn't the President have an obligation to enforce the law as written?

President Obama in his final months in office has pardoned thousands of drug offenders serving heavy time in federal prison for the possession and sale of the drug. Should President Trump continue with the Obama pardon policy given the number of states which have now legalized marijuana?

Considering the conservative, left, mindset, of Trump. I don't think that there are any hopes for the pardon, or legalisation, of marajuna, any time soon.

People are still too afraid of it. The far left being completely terrified. I doubt that it will progress any further, with Trump in power.

Unfortunately, Trump is going to eradicate any, and every, positive movement that has been made over the past decade. This will be no exception. Especially, since Trump is brown nosing Putin, whom is would not stand for such a thing, in his militant, totalitarian ideology.

this is only a way for pharmaceutical companies to be able to legally patent weed to control prices/ market if the plant works great in its natural form why why else would you synthesize it

Marijuana will continue to be banned until the pharacy companies.figure out how to control access to it, THEN all of a sudden it will be the miracle cure... as long as you can only buy it at steep prices from the corporations.

It's already been patented. Patent No. 6630507, held by the United States Department of Health and Human Services, covers the use of cannabinoids for treating a wide range of diseases. Under U.S. federal law, marijuana is defined as having no medical use. So it might come as a surprise to hear that the government owns one of the only patents on marijuana as a medicine. The patent (US6630507) is titled “Cannabinoids as antioxidants and neuroprotectants” and was awarded to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) in October 2003. It was filed four years earlier, in 1999, by a group of scientists from the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), which is part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

With great privilege comes great responsibility, something those of us who weren't born with a platinum spoon in our mouths maybe understand a little better. You don't get to have the privilege of holding the highest rank in the nation without having to make any sacrifices in return - or so I thought before I was introduced to an individual who thinks giving up his Twitter handle is too great of a loss to exchange for getting to rule a country...

It's a good discovery for those that have no options and if they can develop concoctions for a particular type of ailment then that's a bonus Most drugs are made from plants anyway.

Well as i said years ago, they want to f up everythinh. They cant ever leave nature alone. There have been synthetic weed pills for a very long time. You people keep trying toake it"acceptable" but you dont get it that the plant works best when used whole. Unfortunately for you good folks out there, the thc is teally s necessary part of the treatment. Funny thing is, if you really use it for meficine it does not get you high.

Big Pharma MFs will bastardize this sacred plant and make it into a lifeless product they can market an sell until even that they'll take away from our freedoms. We will have to take from their hand something God gave us for free. If we allow it, it will go the way of corn once they figured out how to get it from a GMO and how to extract Ethanol for fuel. And then like somebody here said, it will be paraded as a miracle plant while all the Sheeple and Zombies gather around the trough... to mindlessly consume it not knowing what it is or where it came from... All hail"science..." as we're enslaved by ur own belly!

Well, it seems to me it doesn't hurt to just smoke in all 111 different cannabinoids. If ou do not want to get high there is a way to manage it so you don't.

figure a way that allows the government to save face and the DEA to keep it's funding then we can look at straight forward legalizing possession and use of the plant.

I see this ending just as bad as k2 or spice. We have no need for a synthetic alternatives we have the natural herb waiting to be used so lets use it and stop with all this synthetic bull shit.

Synthetic marijuana is never going to be a good idea , or one that is going to ever be supported by law enforcement! This is why Spice is illegal , because it is not good for you and has landed people in the E.R! Marijuana doesn't harm you at all and is now being supported by law enforcement in the states where marijuana has been legalized for recreational use!

Imitation is a great form of flattery, but the original is tight and true. Second to none. Cannot be duplicated. Why not just have the real deal? Are we that brain washed that we need companies to manufacture and majorly distort something so simple and perfect. Good always wins. Stand down big pharma.

Synthetics have been known to cause lots of damage. Pfizer's latest trial left multiple people BRAIN DEAD. Really, dont fuck with whats already perfect.

With herbal medicine it has been demonstrated time and time again that you cannot replicate the synergistic effect of all the the plant's phytochemicals.
