It would serve the new President well to look at the facts surrounding marijuana and make educated decisions and take positive steps.
This infographic does a great job of breaking down the CSA and where it came from, and what it means. After many years of wrangling over the medical use of cannabis, the government still sides on the “no medical use” side of the argument, which has basically become a obvious lie and attempt to control a substance that threatens the pharmaceutical industry, the timber industry, and energy industry, and many other large money making industries across the globe.
