Federal Departments of alphabet soup have a stranglehold on your medical boo. “Cannabis research stalled by federal inaction,” Chemical & Engineering News, 98(25) 27 (2020).
Cannabis grown by the University of Mississippi (suppress your giggles) is dried immediately after harvesting, gamma-irradiated (space alien presence and such), stored at -20° for years. ..then ground into a fine dust before dispensing. “The highest THC content provided for clinical research is 6%.” Dispensary cannabis contains “up to” 30%.
Our idiot government subsidized tobacco farmers lest they go bankrupt. 6.5 trillion cigarettes/year are sold throughout the world. Where did the money go? Up in smoke, with a few mirrors.
