calling cannabis medicine “sends a terrible message”
Kerlikowske also said that calling cannabis medicine “sends a terrible message” to the nation’s teens. High school students are more likely to smoke marijuana than tobacco due to the growing “perception” that marijuana is less harmful, he said.
What kind of message does taking out a patent on the use of the main ingredient in Marijuana send to High School students? The patent is already being awarded- what message does that send?
What kind of message does it send our High School Students when they watch the news and see advertisements for antidepressant pills every 15 minutes?
What kind of message does it send our High School Students when the "Drug Czar" (thanks Joey Biden) lies and says there is no war on drugs when there is?

October 12, 2012 - Aaron Sandusky, whose G3 Holistic collective had storefronts in Upland, Colton and Moreno Valley, was found guilty on two felony counts of conspiracy and possession with intent to distribute charges. The jury deadlocked on four other charges having to do with operating a location involved with drugs. Judge Anderson declared a mistrial on those counts. Sandusky was sentenced to 10 years in prison on January 7, 2013. He plans to appeal.
Sandusky's brother Keith and four other former employees of G3 Holistic have pleaded guilty in the case. They are awaiting sentencing.
Lying and Pill popping are cool, plants will get you arrested. And whatever you students do, do NOT ask why the Feds patented the Use of the Main Ingredient in Cannabis because you have been told that Cannabis is NOT Medicine!
Get it? Got it? Good.
