Big Pharma Set to Take Over Medical Marijuana Market
Daily News @ RevolutionNews.US — (RAW STORY) Just as the federal government is clamping down on medical marijuana dispensaries, the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) may be set to give Big Pharma the clearance to take over the market. In 2007, GW Pharmaceuticals announced that it partnered with Otsuka to bring “Sativex” — or liquefied marijuana — to the US The companies recently completed Phase II efficacy and safety trials testing and began discussion with the FDA for Phase III testing. Phase III is generally thought to be the final step before the drug can be marketed in the US “GW Pharmaceuticals plc (AIM GWP) today announces the initiation of the Phase III clinical trials programme of Sativex in the treatment of pain in patients with advanced cancer, who experience inadequate analgesia during optimized chronic opioid therapy,” GW said in a statement. “This indication represents the initial target indication for Sativex in the United States.” Sativex is the brand name for a drug derived from cannabis sativa. It’s an extract from the whole plant cannabis, not a synthetic compound. Even GW defines the drug (.pdf) as marijuana. Yet as the FDA is poised to approve the drug for Big Pharma, state-licensed medical marijuana dispensaries that provide relief for thousands of Americans are under attack by other federal agencies.

I pledge allegiance to the Constitution of the United States of America.
And to the Freedom for which it stands.
One nation, free from Tyranny, with Liberty and Justice for all.
The HERB shall survive – the manna of our day – the ancient cure for tumors and one acre = 500 gallons of FUEL – monsters who deny life and freedom in their inhumane genocide and merciless persecution of the textile and god given herb that helped build america when our leaders where not so insane and devious
This is not a huge worry for me. The stuff grows in your back yard. Why would any one buy a pill?
I grow it in my backyard, they cant control this plant.
@northwestblazinfire You laugh now, but If you get your way will it be crying later?
Not LOL on my part.
Hey dipshit DONT DISRESPECT the Liberty wizard which is Ron Paul you stupid little dipshit.
Go and read a book for fuck sake.
Thomas Jefferson was a goddamn PIMP!!!! Thumbs up it!!!
Big Pharma CAN’T control something Natural!
@Zunile03scape Social Security and Medicare have no direct or indirect prohibition in the Constitution. The Preamble suggestion of “promote the general Welfare” counters Paul assertion.
@Zunile03scape Voted no on allowing courts to here cases on god in pledge in violation of Article III and 1st amendment. US Code law is inferior to Constitution and as such mandating god in the pledge is religious establishment.
The War on Religion(a claim of no separation of church and state), Youtube vids. Presidential Candidate, Ron Paul, Comments on Separation of Church & State at the N.H. Debate. Failed Literacy by Paul. Article VI explains government Legal Hierarchy of central government adherence and prohibits “Religious Tests as a qualification for public trust or office. The 1st amendment bans religion based laws and is the only way to protect free exercise.
@RevolutionNewsDotUS2 Competing Currencies — a Defense Against Profligate Government Spending
(refers to Gold standard vs Legal tender Dollar)Failed Literacy by Paul. Stock Market is the “Gold Standard”, operates parallel to dollar Article 1 sec.10 sub sec. 1, & Article 1 sec. 8 sub sec. 3, 5, & 6 create constitutional basis for US Dollar, it’s regulation and counterfeit punishment.
Continue in next…
@Zunile03scape are you a shill for govt lies?
please back up your ridiculous accusations with something besides your opinion,
Don’t site Ron Paul as a defender of the Constitution. His views on states rights, religion in government policy, and government regulatory reach alone express his deep illiteracy in the Constitution’s content. He is not saving the American Spirit, he is killing it!
Marijuana is the BEST CURE for CANCER. Big Pharma/Gov hates that.

Marijuana is a Natural resource that will still be here Millions of years after our species has destroyed itself, or perhaps, it may be growing tall on another world something like our own! SO FUCK YOU PHARMA AND FUCK YOU GOVERNMENT! YOU CAN’T BEAT POT! ITS PART OF NATURE.!
@myleftnutts Because darkies ain’t people,Skeeter Just kidding
@robertsmi9 I do agree with you for the most part. But when you realize that our governments have developed indoctrinations of compartmentalization on a global scale, then hiding emotions is all part of their plan. This really started when Abraham Lincoln sold us to the bankers, so in all reality we were born into this mess. This mafia ruling class has had a lot of time to patch up its program. Packaged it with a nice little ribbon & watched us fumble thru bubble gum rappers for decades.
Big Pharma doesn’t like cheap.
I am so sick of hearing about people winning and crying about big companies and or elected officials. It is our own fault, not anyone particular, but us as a whole, and a group people are like livestock in a slaughter house. We always play follow the crowd, until enough of us step out of the group and make or collective voice heard nothing will change. We control this country ant the companies and politicians. Form groups, get on an issue and don’t stop till you succeed.
