37. Sativex is being touted as a "cure" for marijuana "addiction" in New Zealand.

http://www.globalpost.com/dispatch/news/health/120108/cannabis-medical-marijuana-addicts-pot-weed

honestly, we have crossed over into bizarro world.

so, cannabis that's sold by a pharmaceutical company is being promoted as a cure for cannabis addiction that is less dangerous or addictive than coffee.

This is like offering Starbucks as a cure for Folgers.

The argument is that current whole plant cannabis is generally very THC concentrated. As Michael Pollan wrote about
http://www.democraticunderground.com/117042

and as Judge Gray testified to - http://www.democraticunderground.com/1170156

the reason for this higher-grade THC cannabis is because of prohibition!!!

If this were not such a tragedy for so many people - this would be one of the most hysterically funny attempts to bullshit the American people since Orson Welles' War of the Worlds.

But the reality is that people go to jail for doing something less harmful than drinking a glass of wine in this nation. The real criminals seem to be in DC, however.
