Here are Gupta's reasons for his change of stance:
1.Marijuana laws are not based on science. Gupta wrote: "Not because of sound science, but because of its absence, marijuana was classified as a schedule 1 substance" at the urging of Assistant Secretary of Health, Roger Egeberg in 1970.
2.Gupta notes that marijuana doesn't have a "high potential for abuse" and it doesn't lead people to use other drugs. "We now know that while estimates vary, marijuana leads to dependence in around 9 to 10% of its adult users." Cocaine, classified as a (less addictive) schedule 2 substance, hooks 20% of those who use it. Around 25% of heroin users and 30% of tobacco users become addicted.
3.In some medical cases, marijuana is "the only thing that works." Gupta met with one woman in Colorado who used marijuana to cut the number of seizures she had from 300-per-week to two or three per month.
4.It's safer than a lot of prescription drugs: Someone dies from a prescription drug overdose every 19 minutes in the United States, but Gupta could not find a single person who died from a marijuana overdose.
5.Other doctors believe in it: Seventy-six percent of physicians surveyed would prescribe marijuana to ease the pain of women suffering from breast cancer.
6.While quitting marijuana can produce some withdrawal symptoms, like insomnia, anxiety and nausea, it is still nowhere near as bad at drugs like heroin or cocaine, or even booze. "I have seen the withdrawal from alcohol, and it can be life threatening," Gupta said. Not so with marijuana.
7.Medicinal plants (including marijuana specifically) aren't a new idea: The medical and scientific communities have been studying #$%$ since the 19th Century, and marijuana was actually used to treat neuropathic pain until 1943.
8.Only 6% of research on marijuana published in the last year analyzed benefits. The other 93% are designed primarily to investigate harm. "That imbalance paints a highly distorted picture," Gupta said.
9.The system is biased against research into #$%$'s benefits. First, you have to get the marijuana for your study from one government-approved farm, and you have to get approval from the National Institute on Drug Abuse, which is tasked with studying and preventing drug abuse, not the medical benefits of drugs.
In general, Gupta says he listened a bit too closely to #$%$ opponents and skeptics, and he "didn't look hard enough, until now. I didn't look far enough. I didn't review papers from smaller labs in other countries doing some remarkable research, and I was too dismissive of the loud chorus of legitimate patients whose symptoms improved on cannabis."
your on drugs as I just reported you. I have proof and witness' Where are your facts -

The street is to slow to price in the new developments with extraction and Pharma med solutions with NRTI . They have a ramping ability that Martha Steward has used.

75% of the people here have no clue on what holding the GIFT program has. Can you imagine the grins when they report. The PROFIT tells you to read the press before you short your future. Then re -evaluate where this is going and hitch a ride nation wide -open.
half of Detroit need to upgrade their cars to hydrogen technology. A company like this who has research from the beginning is priceless. This is worth double at this moment in time.
I WANT MY dirty ,stinking ,heavy, slow charging, out dated, acid bleeding, lead #$%$ battery that's dangerous................ I can breath carbon monoxide for thirty years and use a oxygen mask. I like supporting the mid east oil and a not needed pipeline. Call me crazy but who needs change and a better quality of life any way. I support big oil and bad politicians. IM American .
I think you are right . This is going to go through the roof. This has been over looked. Its a sure thing at these levels.
The call should be exiting with the new developments. Your post and time should be at the top also.
Fully contained and needing little fresh water , generator for power and most likely doable. I would guess a grower would run test for ammonia and add proper minerals. Easy connections should be no problem.
the whole industry is tearing up the losses. Most people are doubling down right here. They knew it would happen. ITS TIME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
