December 30, 2016 ( datsyn.com) – Tacoma, WA – Citizens, the Plaintiff and other cannabis ‘Patients are out of Patience.’ What’s left in the balance for the New Year? Is ‘cannabis constitutional?’ A woman’s ‘right to choose’ her own medical care has yet again been infringed by the government; Due process of the 14, 4, and 5th amendments of the US constitution, with Amendments 2nd – Firearms, and 1st – Freedom of speech are at stake.
Medical Marijuana is approved by over 89% of Americans. Over a billion dollars has been generated in legal revenue between Washington and Colorado alone, with millions in paid taxes. Ancient, worldwide practices evidence cannabis’ medical efficacies on top of the over 15,000 results found on PubMed.gov – the US National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health.
The World Health Organization is expected to change the classification of medical cannabus under international law. Even the NFL and the Veteran’s administration are considering further use. Yet the DEA reaffirmed it’s stance, despite the plant’s well-known, proven, pain-relieving and health benefits. People remain incarcerated for non-violent marijuana offenses and continue to be prosecuted in ‘legal’ states.
Meanwhile, the prescription drug epidemic continues; it is again the third leading cause of death in the USA as combined with medical errors. Deaths due to opioid addiction alone, long ago surpassed gun violence. Recently, a West Virginia county filed a lawsuit against drug companies and a physician alleging ‘actual harm’ in a case that echoes the multiple, historical, tobacco lawsuits.
Executive, Legislative and Judicial branches of the US government must come to a reasonable consensus. ‘Patients are out of Patience’ and note the following:
