Major hypocrisy: US govt-funded agency admits marijuana can kill cancer cells

Medical Marijuana Posted Apr 10 2015

The National Institute on Drug Abuse is a US federal government research institute. They have updated their “DrugFacts: Is Marijuana Medicine?” page to now include that marijuana extracts can kill cancer cells. Due to a recent study conducted at St. George’s University, London we now know that cannabis can "dramatically reduce" brain cancer cells. Despite promising research and legislation preventing the DEA to interfere with state's medical marijuana laws, patients are still being threatened by the Justice Department.

"We have the Justice Department continuing to threaten patients with arrest and prosecution in spite of the fact that Congress has voted to prevent the Justice Department from interfering with states that have passed medical marijuana laws," Burnett said. 

"These are all just parts of the major hypocrisy within the federal government when it comes to the issue of marijuana."
