Vail Daily letter: Safe drug

Buddy Sims, in his letter “It ain’t medicine” (Nov. 1), wrote, “The American Medical Association recommends that marijuana remain a Schedule I controlled illegal federal substance.”

The AMA recently passed a resolution urging the rescheduling of cannabis as a Schedule II drug in the Controlled Substances Act.

Further, Kevin Sabet, as part of the ONDCP, is mandated by law to lie.

Cannabis has been in the human pharmacopoeia for thousands of years with no known case – ever – of a human overdose.

When cannabis was discovered to have cancer-fighting potential in 1974, the study was buried.

The U.S. government owns U.S. Patent 6630507, Cannabinoids as antioxidants and neuroprotectants.

The U.S. government also distributes half a pound of pre-rolled medical cannabis cigarettes to the four remaining patients enrolled in the Compassionate Investigational New Drug program.

If science and truth were the standard, cannabis never would have been made illegal in the first place.
