Federal Government Ordered 1000 Lbs Of Marijuana


Recommended Posts

Washington, D.C. -- The federal government just ordered all the marijuana it wants -- something it would send most Americans to prison for doing.

 

On Monday, the Drug Enforcement Administration issued a new rule that increases the U.S. government's production quota for medical marijuana from an annual 21 kg to 650 kg. That's about 1,433 pounds of pot in total.

The U.S. government grows marijuana for research purposes at the University of Mississippi in the only federally legal marijuana garden in the U.S. The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) oversees the cultivation, production and distribution of these crops.

 

"NIDA recently notified the DEA that it required additional supplies of marijuana to be manufactured in 2014 to provide for current and anticipated research efforts involving marijuana," reads a recent Federal Register's statement from the DEA.

 

The statement goes on to specify a production quota of 650,000 grams of pot for the current year.

 

The DEA decided to grant NIDA access to more marijuana "in order to provide a continuous and uninterrupted supply" of cannabis for research, according to the statement, which also says that the federal government was "unaware" of NIDA's need for additional marijuana when the initial production quota of 21 kg was set in 2013.

AG Holder is a criminal. Where did he get the marijuana? From Mexican cartels? Another detour to take attention off Bengazi and the fact that this corrupt administration will no be accountable for any of it's illegal actions.Import MJ. Gee a lot of American could use a job. This has got to be the stupidest plan yet. Mexico will legalize before the US and now you know why.

Read it. They grow it at the University of Mississippi. This is what every medical cannabis patient wants and needs. We PATIENTS have been begging and pleading for this for years. Now you want to use it for petty politics along with some other BS right wing propaganda from the news that preys on the weak minded.

Rest,can't you see this isn't right wing stuff? It's true! THEY are the ones using it politically! I'm sick of you jumping on me. If you voted for the fake prez,TWICE.....then I blame YOU for all of it. How many times have we heard the promise of legalizing? Do YOU have a job? If you don't because you are disabled,you should get help. If you don't because you won't pass a drug test,that's your own fault. There IS a whole world out here that does not LIVE for MJ. And don't try the guilt crap. It's getting real old. You want to pick it with me? Lets go to the PMs,not in public. You like to get your friends in on it. Bring it on..............in fact how about I give you my mail address so you can talk to me without your band of bullies. WEAK MINDED MY BUTT. You wouldn't say anything if I was a man,would you? Go ahead,answer that one publicly. But you won't. You never answer one question I put to you.

Don't be all too surprised that a medical marijuana web site will have members that protect the rights of patients and cheer when we win a battle. Hip Hip Hooray! Pay close attention and you just might see us dance a little when we get our drug of choice rescheduled. lol I will dance an Irish Jig for ya. If you are a real MEDICAL MARIJUANA patient then you can dance right along with me. Fakers will just whine and poo poo on it. Edited by Restorium2

Saw an interview with one of the main researchers in the US marijuana research program. At they time they mostly grew cannabis in the 5% THC range because need consistency in their product. (Although I think there are only a couple of folks that procure directly from them.) Prolly most folks here wouldn't be happy with the government grow unless they wanted to make concentrates!

      REPORT Report Massachusetts Department of Public Health Marijuana Research
      ORGANIZATION: Department of Public Health DATE PUBLISHED: July 9, 2019 The Marijuana Baseline Health Study (MBHS)
      A legislative mandate required the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (DPH) to conduct a baseline study to investigate three topics:
      Patterns of use, methods of consumption, and general perceptions of marijuana Incidents of impaired driving and hospitalization related to marijuana use; and Economic and fiscal impacts for state and local governments This study, referred to as the Marijuana Baseline Health Study (MBHS), was conducted by DPH, under the leadership of the DPH Commissioner, in consultation with the Executive Office of Health and Human Services, the Executive Office for Administration and Finance, and the Executive Office of Public Safety and Security.

      Pregnancy and Medical Marijuana
      Expectant mothers are searching for answers about the safety profile of Medical Marijuana. Unfortunately the scientific community has dropped the ball and kicked it off the cliff on this issue. The lack of scientific research is due to marijuana’s illegality. Further, there exist huge biases within the published research. Mostly the research confounds marijuana use with tobacco and/or alcohol, two known causes of fetus and child harm. Separating out marijuana effects from the self-reported research on mothers who also smoke tobacco and drink alcohol is impossible. Likewise no pregnant women are signing up for research studies due to the illegality of marijuana and CPS removing children from mothers for testing positive for marijuana use.
      Many organizations quote from other organizations, who quote from other studies and reviews. The Minnesota Department of Health OFFICE OF MEDICAL CANNABIS quotes from the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists Committee report:
      In the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists official committee opinion, interim update Oct 2017, the committee found:
       
       
      Uninformed opinion, with zero evidence and lots of fear, uncertainty and doubt (FUD) are used to scare mothers away from a nontoxic plant. These uninformed unscientific opinions are being used by lawmakers to craft laws continuing the cycle of FUD and the illegality of marijuana. “Oh we don’t know what marijuana does, so let’s treat it like heroin” and “if anyone questions our opinion of marijuana, we’ll call them dirty lazy pothead stoner hippies” or “puppets of the marijuana industry”.
       
      But we do know what marijuana does. One cannot live in a bubble and ignore reality and the world around us. Women smoke and eat marijuana while pregnant.

      Much of the opinions on marijuana are tainted by a small number of poorly designed studies on marijuana. For example, the National Institute of Health gives grants to researchers through NIDA, the National Institute of Drug Abuse, to study marijuana. NIDA’s focus is on drug abuse, so 90% of its grants are for studies on marijuana abuse, not marijuana benefits. When you ignore half of your research, you ignore science. Many of these studies are completed in order to get future grants from NIDA; research is often conducted from the conclusion backwards in order to show some kind of harm from marijuana use. This, in of itself, does not bias research.
       
      https://www.nytimes.com/2010/01/19/health/policy/19marijuana.html 
       
      The bias is introduced when researchers are rushed and forced to publish results, even if the studies were deficient. For example, every website and newspaper ran with the story about marijuana using children lose IQ points. Not many reported on the follow-up study that could not replicate the first study. When eliminating co-founders, the new study found no drop in IQ points. Further, research on twin siblings showed that the drop in IQ was due to parenting, binge drinking or other societal influences, not marijuana.
      https://www.drugabuse.gov/news-events/nida-notes/2016/08/study-questions-role-marijuana-in-teen-users-iq-decline 

       
      Try reading that last sentence again. In a world of science, evidence, reasoning and logic, a doctor makes a statement that decades of use of marijuana might make you lose intellectual function, based on conjecture.
      NIDA also continues to perpetuate the myth that Marijuana is a “gateway drug”.
      https://www.drugabuse.gov/publications/research-reports/marijuana/marijuana-gateway-drug 
      These findings are consistent with the idea of marijuana as a "gateway drug." However, the majority of people who use marijuana do not go on to use other, "harder" substances.
      NIDA, NIH, FDA, DEA, including other federal, state, and local government organizations and private companies continue to perpetuate these and other lies in order to keep marijuana illegal. ASA has filed complaints against the DEA multiple times to get it to remove incorrect statements about marijuana off of the DEA’s website.

      A cyclical pattern emerges from the current and past situation surrounding marijuana.
      1.      Stymied scientific research, due to illegality of marijuana and government funding biases
      2.      Using stymied scientific research as a reason to ignore reality.
      3.      Repeating the biased scientific research, long after it was shown to be deficient.
      4.      Using the deficient biased research in “meta-reviews”. Thus taking bad science as a base to create more bad science just by doing an analysis of the bad science conclusions.
      5.      Even after a research study has been fully proven to be deficient and conflicting with better research, continue to hold it up as if it is still valid in some way.
      6.      Publish opinions as if they were facts, without any data to back up any claims.
      Continue reading for more conflicting studies and more calls for research.

      Marijuana makes drivers drive slower.
      That's about it.
      Read on to see the consensus from research spanning 50 years from USA, UK, Canada, Australia, and everywhere else. Just under 300 studies along with independent and government reports were collected, yet the research keeps pointing to the same thing. People driving after using cannabis drive a little bit slower. States with Legalized and Medical Marijuana have fewer fatal car accidents. My guess is that the fewer fatal accidents are due to substituting alcohol and other medications for cannabis.
      Don't believe me, take the official government word directly from NIDA:
