THC is one of the active ingredients for medicinal effect!

Sure it has psychotropic side effects, but so do other currently legal prescription drugs. You can even buy pure THC already for medicinal purposes:

Dronabinol - PubMed Health


It makes no sense that marijuana is illegal because it gets you high, yet pure THC is legal to sell for medicinal purposes.


If you wanted cannabis without the effects of THC also, we have hemp already. The illegality of hemp in the US should be considered a crime against humanity. You can't even get high off the stuff.

Humans have an aversion to anything they deem "pleasurable"...it's like a dirty word. I have no idea why.

Funny how the scientists figure they can better in a lab what nature has already perfected....why would anyone want a synthetic drug with side effects, when nature gives us one, and the side effects are actually GOOD for you?

I used to be able to get a tea made of natural efedra. It had a tangy taste and was far milder than the smallest dose of of psudofed you can do without smashing them. Psudofed keeps me awake for two days. The natural produce did an excellent job of taking care of congestion without any of those side effects. They may act chemically *similar* but not the same.

Now its a different blend and does nothing. The dosage was so low it would take quite a haul of the tea to distill much out of it, but since its related, say goodbye.

Why would they wanna go and do a thing like that?
