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!

Schiff Knew About ‘Bounties’ On US Soldiers, But Stayed Silent & Did Not Tell Congress

Duuuddee!!

California Democrat Adam Schiff has to be one of the sneakiest, most conniving people in all of Congress – and that’s saying something, obviously. For example, the radically far-left congressman knew the Trump campaign never colluded with Russia, yet continued to push the conspiracy in order to continually target the president. Not only that, but the guy knew about “bounties” but said nothing. What is he thinking? Check this out, via The Federalist: Top committee staff for Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), the chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, were briefed in February on intelligence about Russia offering the Taliban bounties in Afghanistan, but he took no action in response to the briefing, multiple intelligence sources familiar with the briefing told The Federalist. The intelligence was briefed to Schiff’s staff during a congressional delegation, or CODEL, trip to Afghanistan in February. Schiff, who has acknowledged President Donald Trump was never briefed on the so-called intelligence, has thus far refused to disclose that his staff was personally briefed. The revelation raises serious questions that Schiff is once again politicizing, and perhaps even deliberately misrepresenting, key data for partisan gain. Continued: Asked by a reporter Tuesday if he had any knowledge of the Russia story prior to the New York Times report, Schiff said “I can’t comment on specifics.” LOOK: https://twitter.com/RepAdamSchiff/status/1255902443390599169?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1255902443390599169&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.thegatewaypundit.com%2F2020%2F04%2Fhead-house-intelligence-adam-schiff-demands-google-youtube-twitter-step-authoritative-censorship-silencing%2F Here are clearer pictures of the letter… For your viewing pleasure, here’s some classic Schiff nonsense… https://twitter.com/kayleighmcenany/status/1177232817853517824?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1177232817853517824&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.thegatewaypundit.com%2F2020%2F04%2Fhead-house-intelligence-adam-schiff-demands-google-youtube-twitter-step-authoritative-censorship-silencing%2F Former MSNBC host Chris Matthews wants Schiff to get into the 2020 presidential race.

NFL to Play ‘Black National Anthem’ Before All Week 1 Season Openers (Details)

The what what…what?

If there’s a “black national anthem,” does that mean there’s a “white national anthem?” Liberals would obviously say the national anthem is a white national anthem – but they’re just being ridiculous. How can the NFL possibly think this is a good move? How does this move the needle? Will MLB and the NBA soon follow? From ESPN: “Lift Ev’ry Voice And Sing,” traditionally known as the Black national anthem, is expected to be performed live or played before every Week 1 NFL game, and the league is considering a variety of other measures during the upcoming season to recognize victims of police brutality, a source familiar with the league’s discussions told The Undefeated on Thursday. The song would be performed before “The Star-Spangled Banner,” the source said. The NFL’s season opener is scheduled for Sept. 10, with the Kansas City Chiefs hosting the Houston Texans.
