POT IN THE PDR

For more than 60 years, the Physician's Desk Reference has been the "leading drug resource" , and is advertised as "The most authoritative source of FDA-approved drug information available". (http://www.pdrhealth.com/) Yet, there it is, listed as any other available medication, CANNABIS: "What it is"; "Before Using"; "Dosage"; "To store this medicine"; "Drug and Food Interactions"; "Warnings"; "Side Effects"; and, a researchers' jackpot, THIRTY sources used to determine the medical usage and dosage of cannabis. Since post-World War II, the Food and Drug Administration has denied that cannabis holds any medical value, by classifying marijuana as a Schedule I drug. In this way, they assist the Federal Government in their claim of illegality, and as such, it is made enforceable. Even when confronted with conflicting data, including studies showing both the palliative and curative properties of smoked marijuana, the Feds continue to deny medical marijuana, and proactively seek out and prosecute both medical marijuana patients and their caregivers. In 2005, the US Supreme Court reaffirmed the Feds right to arrest medical marijuana patients, their caregivers and their providers. In addition, the government may censure physicians from talking about marijuana with their patients. (http://www.safeaccessnow.org/article.php?id=2346)
