simply cannot believe almost everyone wants to demonize everything and everyone but big pharma.

from Breaking News:
Eli Lilly to settle US SEC bribery case

US drugmaker Eli Lilly and Co agreed on Thursday to pay $29 million to settle civil charges that its subsidiaries made improper payments to foreign government officials to win business in Russia, Brazil, China and Poland.

Lilly's settlement with the US Securities and Exchange Commission represents part of a broader bribery crackdown on the pharmaceutical industry by US criminal and civil authorities as they continue to probe corruption.

The settlement stems from an investigation by the SEC of Lilly's activities from 1994 to 2009, Lilly said, adding the company was first notified of the probe in 2003.

In this case, the SEC alleged that a Russian unit of Indianapolis-based Eli Lilly used “marketing agreements” to funnel millions of dollars to government officials through offshore companies.

In 2006 Eli Lilly got caught for encouraging primary care physicians to use Zyprexa, a powerful drug for schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, in patients who did not have either condition.

******PROMOTING THE USE OF A DRUG IN THE MIDDLE OF A DRUG WAR TO PATIENTS WHO DID NOT HAVE EITHER CONDITION*****************************************

HELLO is anyone there??? There's more:

ANOTHER criminal information alleged that Zyprexa was promoted (1999-2003) in nursing homes and assisted-living facilities for the treatment of disorders such as dementia, Alzheimer’s dementia, depression, anxiety, and sleep problems, and behavioral symptoms such as agitation, aggression, and hostility. The qui tam lawsuits alleged that Zyprexa was promoted (1999-2005) for use in patients of all ages and for the treatment of anxiety, irritability, depression, nausea, Alzheimer’s and other mood disorders. Off-label promotion of pharmaceutical drugs is considered, by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), to be a serious crime that undermines their role in drug regulation and public safety

************************
So basically what Eli Lilly was doing is stuffing kids mouths with drugs for illnesses they didn't have and then taking that money and using it to bribe foreign countries to allow them to stuff their kids mouths with drugs they don't need either. Presumably to make more millions of dollars to hire the latest FDA clowns, to then be able to legally stuff more drugs into a new crop of Americans. Does that sound good?

Consider:

Cannabis is Illegal but the use of the main ingredient is patented by the Federal Government

Cannabinoids have been found to have antioxidant properties, unrelated to NMDA receptor antagonism. This new found property makes cannabinoids useful in the treatment and prophylaxis of wide variety of oxidation associated diseases, such as ischemic, age-related, inflammatory and autoimmune diseases.

The cannabinoids are found to have particular application as neuroprotectants, for example in limiting neurological damage following ischemic insults, such as stroke and trauma, or in the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease and HIV dementia.
