    medical weed is ignored as the feds exert their power over the states, in this case asserting federal laws on weed trumps state laws.  Heck the IRS even disallows business deductions for the clinics on the grounds they are a criminal enterprise (BTW ever seen an infrared photo of S. Cal?  the amount of weed grown on public lands with impunity is staggering)

      what the NRA did with gun violence research: deep-sixed it.

      Since the early 1980s NO federal funding has been used to search for good applications of cannabis. Only research to find bad stuff was authorised.

      Even today - in the 21st Century - it is still so banned its virtually impossible to study.

      The purpose is clear: thwart anything that interrupts the propaganda stream.

      Same with eliminating gun violence stats: that seems to be a basically evil maneuver: we dont want people to be able to show how deadly guns are.

      Can't show how positive weed might be, can't show how bad guns can be, both clearly GOP policies and SOME cannot see the parallels - perhaps even brag about their lack of dot-connection..

      The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men.
