The FDA in it's infinite wisdom has approved the sale of two new tobacco products despite their scientifically and medically proven links to a multitude of cancers. Correct me if I'm wrong but I thought that the FDA was supposed to prevent dangerous substances from reaching the market, not approve them. This is the same FDA that prohibitionists love to cite as not recognizing cannabis as medicine. So does that mean tobacco has medicinal properties? If the FDA is in the business of approving carcinogenic products designed for the explicit purpose of being smoked then why should we believe them when they deny cannabis has any medicinal qualities? Why should we trust them with our health and well being when they approve yet another poison from Big Tobacco? Obviously they don't have any concerns for the public's well being when Big Tobacco's profits are at stake. The next time a prohibitionist tries to make the FDA argument against cannabis remember this reckless approval. And remember that as long as you have a strong enough lobby you can buy anyone including a government agency. Don't believe me? Just ask Big Tobacco, Big Pharma, the Industrial Prison/Rehab complex, and the Alcohol industry.
