    they classified marijuana in Schedule I because they claim it has no medicinal values at all. They classified heroin, meth and cocaine in Schedule II, I guess because they do have some medicinal values and because their are less harmful then marijuana?? I don’t think so. If marijuana has no medicinal value then why does the federal government hold patent for the medical use of cannabis?

    War on Drugs was confusing the difference, implying all drugs are the same…but you have to remember something, marijuana is not a drug, it is a plant. What blows my mind is that people are so sheep that they will follow anyone to anywhere. It means that in this so called “free country” there are no free thinkers. how did a plant become a drug?? worst of all, how did a plant become a drug that is more harmful then heroin, cocaine and meth?? When they were writing these laws, how come no one questioned anything?? I wasn’t around in 1973 when they declared “war on drugs” users.
