Big Pharma Takeover Of Med Marijuana In 2013

The goals of this plan will be to marginalize medical marijuana, to co-op the entire medical marijuana industry and transfer it and all profits to big pharma. It will be a one-punch; stock in GW pharma will go north on Wall Street as swat teams arrest the ill and close up clinics, driving marijuana back underground, which is the goal of the DEA.

The fix is in, or should I say the double cross. No matter who wins the 2012 presidential election, Obama or Romney, the DEA and IRS already have operational plans in place to launch a country-wide strike operation to shut down all 17 legal medical marijuana states and DC in a surge coup d'état in support of Sativex's dominance of the marketplace.

So here's how it will go down:

1. It seems possible.

There's been at least two occurrences where the U.S. Medical Industrial Complex has admitted medically experimenting on folks (Tuskagee, Guatemala, how many others?), why should folks who know this be forced to get their healthcare only from the same Medical Industrial complex?

3. And I think big pharma will lose their ass on it.

Sativex is an oral spray. Oh sure there may be some people filling prescriptions but the majority of people will keep getting it as they have in the past.

4. Dr. Lester Grinspoon wrote about this in 2001

It appears, then, that in the United States two powerful forces are colliding over the issue of medicinal cannabis. On the one hand, there is a growing interest in and acceptance of the medicinal importance of cannabis, and there is every reason to believe that this development will continue to gain momentum. As it does so it increasingly confronts the proscription against any use of marijuana. At the same time, there does not appear to be widespread interest in moving from an absolute prohibition against cannabis to a regulatory system which would allow for the responsible use of this drug. The federal government, until recently has denied any medical utility to cannabis, and it appears to be vehemently opposed to any relaxation of the prohibition.

I also noted Sativex was trying to position itself as "better" marijuana and has hired two former Bush Drug Czar officers to lobby for Sativex in the U.S.
