U.S. Government Finally Admits Marijuana Really Does Kill Cancer Cells

The idea that cannabis kills cancer cells seems to no longer be a conspiracy theory in the United States. With this information, can any state legitimately say no to medicinal marijuana?

Amy Willis with Metro says that the US government has added a page on the use of cannabis and cannabinoids to their official cancer advice website.

Willis advises, “The National Cancer Institute, part of the US Department of Health, now advises that ‘cannabinoids may be useful in treating the side effects of cancer and cancer treatment’ by smoking, eating it in baked products, drinking herbal teas or even spraying it under the tongue.â€

The official government site has a long list of medicinal uses of cannabis, including: Anti-inflammatory activity, pain relief, anti-anxiety, stress relief, anti-tumor, antiviral activity and relieving muscle spasms caused by multiple sclerosis, and many many more.

The site goes on to talk about how cannabis has been proven to destroy cancer cells in lab experiments.

This should remove it from the schedule 1 class (no known medical use).

If only the government and the FDA actually worked and was effective. If the FDA was actually after the safety of products for the American people.

specific groups?
What groups are those?
Idiots?
Criminals?
The poor? (because wealthy people can get RX sedatives or mood elevator pills from a doctor, but the poor need to self-medicate)?
Tell me more about the "groups" being targeted.
I'll keep my head bare. I know where the tinfoil is, but I won't make that trip to the kitchen or wrap my head in it just yet.

It started out that way with Nixon using drug laws to target hippies and civil rights activists.

they just had a chance to do that (Aug 10, 2016), and they refused.

The Obama administration has denied a bid by two Democratic governors to reconsider how it treats marijuana under federal drug control laws, keeping the drug for now, at least, in the most restrictive category for U.S. law enforcement purposes.

There are a number of cannabis-based drugs (both cannabidiol-only and cannabidiol plus THC) for pain management, seizure control, anxiety reduction, appetite stimulation, and other purposes being developed in the European Union on behalf of U.S. pharmaceutical developers. Their intent is to appeal to the FDA to allow their importation as Schedule III medications. As the research, development, cultivation, and manufacture would take place outside of the United States it would skirt regulations that would prevent their production domestically but still allow the finished medications to be sold in the U.S. I am hearing that the FDA is potentially amenable to this approach as it would medicalize marijuana in a way that would at the same time effectively shut down domestic cultivation and sale for medical purposes in the states that allow it. The rationale for that prior state-level legalization would be moot.

On the one hand, these are potentially highly beneficial medications that could treat a broad variety of illnesses with greater efficacy than medications currently available, and they would be available everywhere and not just in the states that have legalized medical marijuana. On the other hand it would slam the door, perhaps permanently, on homeopathic and recreational cultivation and use that increasingly is becoming acceptable to U.S. citizens.
