Marijuana’s Image Gets Major, Modern Makeover Thanks to FDA

The fight for the modernization of marijuana’s public image has taken a huge step forward today.

It’s times like these in which it is okay to admit that we, as a society, around the globe, may have been wrong about marijuana.

Many of us came of age in the 70’s and 80’s, when the “war on drugs” was raging here in America.  Of course, this war couldn’t possibly be confined by our borders alone, especially when we begin to think about the immense, global scale of drug trafficking.  Any attempt to squash drug use in the United States will, by nature, have massive international consequences.

One of the most egregious errors in this “war” was believing that marijuana is an equal adversary to products such as heroine, prescription opioids, crack cocaine, methamphetamine, and other high powered narcotics.  Science and culture have proven, time and again, that we got this wrong, and that the very idea of making a medicinal herd illegal was downright moronic.

So, here we are, climbing out of the hole that we dug for ourselves, state by state, doctor by doctor.  Today, however, a major milestone has been reached in the fight for the modernization of marijuana’s image.

Epidiolex, the first cannabis-based medication approved by the US Food and Drug Administration, is now available by prescription in all 50 states.

The twice-daily oral solution is approved for use in patients 2 and older to treat two types of epileptic syndromes: Dravet syndrome, a rare genetic dysfunction of the brain that begins in the first year of life, and Lennox-Gastaut syndrome, a form of epilepsy with multiple types of seizures that begins in early childhood, usually between ages 3 and 5.
“Because these patients have historically not responded well to available seizure medications, there has been a dire need for new therapies that aim to reduce the frequency and impact of seizures,” said Justin Gover, CEO of GW Pharmaceuticals, the maker of Epidiolex, in a written statement. “We are committed to ensuring that these patients can access this novel cannabinoid medicine that has been thoroughly studied in clinical trials, manufactured to assure quality and consistency, and is eligible to be covered by insurance for appropriate patients.”
Now, if we could only explain to the rest of our government that the legalization of marijuana would create an economic boom reminiscent of the California gold rush, we might still be able to claw our way back to full prosperity.
Save conservative media!

Obama In 2008: We Can Only Trust Mail-In Ballots If Signatures Are Verified (Watch)

Ain’t that something!?

It’s pretty amazing how Democrats can flip the switch. They hated the Electoral College for a long time…until their guy “won.” Many of them, like Barack Obama and Rep. Jerry Nadler (NY), once said mail-in voting is rife with fraud. But again, because their guy “won,” they refuse to speak the truth. Cowards. Here’s what the worst president in American history said in 2008 on MSNBC, “Well, I think we have to figure out whether this is fraud proof. I mean, Oregon has a terrific mail-in system but they’ve already scanned everyone’ signature whose registered to vote so that they can check to make sure that in fact the right people are voting.” WATCH: https://twitter.com/RaheemKassam/status/1331942266018082819 LOOK: https://twitter.com/Barnes_Law/status/1332354346307108869?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1332354346307108869%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.thegatewaypundit.com%2F2020%2F11%2Fflashback-obama-says-mail-ballots-can-trusted-signatures-verified-video%2F Even though Dems claim voter fraud isn’t real, Nadler said in 2004 that it was very real.

The TDS may never disappear!

If you don’t agree with us, you should be ostracized or even imprisoned. That’s how the left thinks. That’s how crazy they have become. The left is clearly comprised of communists and socialists and they’re not even afraid to hide it anymore. Keith Olbermann is one of the worst they have to offer. The former ESPN host blabbered, “G– d**n it! When the policy differences are between maintaining American democracy and substituting racist, one party rule. You’re G– d**n right, we want to criminalize policy differences that might exist between the outgoing administration and the administration that is about to take over.” WATCH: https://twitter.com/stillgray/status/1331426604724043777?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1331426604724043777%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fyoure-g-dn-right-we-want-to-criminalize-policy-differences-olbermann-says-out-loud-what-cnn-merely-implies%2F In short, Olbermann is a goon. To him, the only opinion that matters is the left’s. Who employs this guy, these days?

This time, he insisted it’s on good terms. Olbermann announced on Twitter that he will be offering political commentary on a new YouTube show, “The Worst Person in the World,” that begins on Wednesday. WATCH: https://twitter.com/KeithOlbermann/status/1313602428340764672 Well, he got the title of his show correct.
