Re: “Missouri ballot push to legalize marijuana begins

The sad part of this is, if it were to make it on a ballot and pass, it is still illegal in the eyes of the Federal Government. But here is the kicker... in 1976 a gentleman in Washington was arrested for growing marijuana. In his defense he used the Common Law Doctrine of Necessity and the judge ruled that his marijuana constituted a "medical necessity" and his case was dismissed. So as a result the National Institute on Drug Abuse started the Compassionate "Investigational New Drug" program for seriously ill patients. Those that were accepted into the program (and they had to jump through fire almost) received 300-360 pre-rolled joints per month, free of charge from the government. That's right folks from the Government. In 1992 the elder President Bush terminated the program, but told the NIDA to continue supplying those still in the program with their monthly supply. There are only 4 people left in the program and to this very day they continue to receive medicinal marijuana from the government on a monthly basis. But yet the government says it has no medicinal value, so they keep it on the Schedule 1 list of narcotics along with Heroin and LSD. See in order to prove it has medicinal value they have to conduct scientific studies and to do that you have to obtain approval from the DEA and the FDA. Well they sit on these requests for 2-3 years and then say no. In 1988 the DEA's own Chief Administrative Law Judge ordered the DEA to remove marijuana from the Schedule 1 list to a Schedule 2 list. One year later the Director of the DEA finally made a statement ignoring the Judge's decision, saying that it will remain on the Schedule 1 list. The Federal Government keep putting up road blocks so that it can't be tested...why, because if it is tested it will prove to have medicinal value. We all need to get involved with this and make sure it passes. At least it will be a step in the right direction. There is medicinal value and our Government should not tell someone what medicine they can or can not take to increase there quality of life.
