Edited: for some reason it came up blank on the post and I thought it didn't paste.  As you could see Phaq I tired a couple times. :)

 

Our gov't sucks azz!  All the way to the top!

 

 

The FDA has approved Insys Therapeutics Inc’s oral solution, Syndros, which is a liquid formulation of the pharmaceutical cannabinoid dronabinol.

Syndros may be used in patients experiencing anorexia due to AIDS, as well as cancer patients experiencing nausea and vomiting due to chemotherapy, and have not responded adequately to traditional antiemetic treatments.

"We are very pleased to announce FDA approval of Syndros,” said John N. Kapoor, company chairman, CEO, and president, in a press release. “We believe that Syndros will be an important new treatment option for patients suffering from the devastating effects of chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting, as well as those fighting anorexia associated with weight loss in AIDS.”

The most common adverse effects associated with Syndros are dizziness, drowsiness, and nausea. However, some other rare adverse effects have also been reported, including abdominal pain, restlessness, itching eyes, cough, and diarrhea.  

“Syndros is the first and only FDA approved dronabinol solution for oral use,” Syndros stated in a press release. “It is a liquid that is easy-to-swallow and allows for the dosage to be titrated to clinical effect. Once Syndros has been opened, it does not need to be refrigerated for 28 days. We believe that these product features, coupled with patient support services, will prove to be important differentiators for patients and prescribers and will be key drivers of a successful market launch and sustained growth.”

Insys Therapeutics expects to launch the drug in the second half of 2016. Syndros has yet to be scheduled by the Drug Enforcement Administration.

I suppose this ridiculous BS will continue until they "discover" that the "whole is worth more than the individual parts".

 

WTH is up with these people? They are helll bent on proving that the whole plant is worthless, but that it's individual chemicals are medicinal. Good luck with that.

I believe they hired him to chemically identify marijuana substitutes like spice. They have to identify them to make them illegal. 

 

You must not have looked at the Wikipedia link. It says:

 

John William Huffman (born 1932) is a professor emeritus of organic chemistry at Clemson University who first synthesised many novel cannabinoids.[1] His research, funded by the National Institute on Drug Abuse, was focused on making a drug to target endocannabinoid receptors in the body.

After much reading it seems the answer is that the NIDI sent him on a;  quest to cure Americans of their enjoyment of marijuana

 

Then they wanted him to find some medical uses for THC.

If any of the below is true, I think we need to call this Professor John W Huffman Dr. Frankenstein instead.

 

What Does Spice/K2 Do To You?

Almost no synthetic cannabinoids sold on the street today have been tested on human beings; none of them can be considered safe.

The effects on people who use spice are many and varied, but often it’s bad news.

Side effects include many of the classic symptoms of hard core drug addiction: intense cravings, vomiting, extreme agitation, psychotic episodes including hallucinations, and even heart attacks.

 

An expert in the field and the man who the chemical JWH is named after, Professor John W Huffman, is quoted as saying,

People who use it are idiots.

Today, synthetic marijuana is widely believed to be more dangerous than the real thing.
