FDA Approves Two New Cigarettes
Last comment by TommyMarin 9 months, 1 week ago.

Take Me To Post Comment Form


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.

"“Lifetime marijuana use up to 20 joint-years is not associated with adverse changes in spirometric (exhalation strength) measures of lung health,” the study, featured in the medical journal Annals of the American Thoracic Society, concluded...“The distinction the Emory University study makes is not new,” Allen St. Pierre, executive director of the National Organization to Reform Marijuana Laws, told ThinkProgress. “It’s ripe with citations from Donald Tashkin who has spent more than 40 years trying to answer the question of what happens to people when they smoke tobacco and marijuana. This new study took things further; today these products aren’t being smoked [in a way] that the product is carbonized and there’s ash."

Supposedly Neutral Federal Report Stacks The Deck Against Marijuana Legalization

"In 2012 Coloradans approved Amendment 64, which legalized marijuana for recreational use, by a vote of 55 percent to 45 percent. Last February a Quinnipiac University poll found that 58 percent of Colorado voters supported that decision, while 38 percent opposed it and the rest weren’t sure.

For prohibitionists determined to portray marijuana legalization in Colorado as a disaster, those poll results are inconvenient, since they indicate that public support for Amendment 64 was higher after more than a year of legal recreational sales and more than two years of legal possession and home cultivation than it was in 2012. Honest drug warriors would acknowledge the Quinnipiac numbers and perhaps try to balance them with other poll results. Dishonest drug warriors would do what the Rocky Mountain High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area (RMHIDTA) does in its new report on marijuana legalization: change the numbers."

Medical Marijuana Dispensaries Win Battle Against Federal Crackdown

Medical marijuana dispensaries scored a major win on Monday when a federal judge ruled that the Department of Justice cannot prosecute legal providers of medical cannabis.

"This is a big win for medical marijuana patients and their providers, and a significant victory in our efforts to end the federal government’s war on marijuana. Federal raids of legitimate medical marijuana businesses aren’t just stupid and wasteful, but also illegal," said Dan Riffle, director of federal policies for Marijuana Policy Project, in a statement.

"It's great to see the judicial branch finally starting to hold the Justice Department accountable for its willful violation of Congress's intent to end federal interference with state medical marijuana laws,"said Tom Angell, chairman of the pro-legalization group Marijuana Majority. "I hope the Obama administration takes this ruling to heart and makes sure DEA and federal prosecutors finally stop trying to stand between patients and their medicine."

The Mexican President Promises a Debate on Marijuana Legalization

By Gabriela Gorbea
November 10, 2015 | 4:05 pm

Mexico's President Enrique Peña Nieto has promised a major national debate to decide the country's position on marijuana legalization, the week after the country's supreme court granted four individuals the permission to cultivate and use the drug.

Peña Nieto instructed the country's interior ministry to organize the debate he said would include experts from multiple disciplines and will define Mexico's stance at next spring's United Nations global drug policy summit as well as the country's own specific policies on the issue.

While he laid out his own personal opposition to legalization — arguing that marijuana consumption leads to harder drugs — the president said he could be persuaded to change his mind.

"I am not the owner of the truth," Peña Nieto said. "I am open to listening to well-documented positions that are scientifically sustainable and could lead to a different position."..."from the human rights perspective you cannot stop anybody, specifically the four people in the case, from using their freedom to consume it if they want."

The resolution reaffirms that the federal government cannot use its power to force states, the laboratories of democracy, to criminalize marijuana or hemp, as “doing so would constitute unconstitutional commandeering.”
