Marijuana as medicine has been rejected by the American Medical Association, the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, the American Glaucoma Society, the American Academy of Ophthalmology, and the American Cancer Society. Not one American health association accepts marijuana as medicine. In fact, every new research project performed on marijuana smoking has resulted in new data supporting the need to keep this drug illegal. Even potentially deadly drugs like PCP, Methamphetamine and Cocaine have been found to hold some medical value and are used in limited medical situations. If there was a shred of credible evidence showing marijuana had legitimate medical value, it would have been legalized for medical treatment years ago. Groups pushing "marijuana as medicine" do not care about sick people. Don't let them fool you. They have an agenda. They know if marijuana is legalized as "medicine" it willl provide them with the legal loop hole to smoke pot whenever and whereever they want. Marijuana is not medicine. It is an addictive and destructive drug which has layed the foundation of today's global drug crisis.

When farmers could do this in the early twentieth century in the U.S., no one did. If it is such a good idea, why aren't other countries around the world doing this? Even if Congress granted the supposed benefits of "hemp as fiber," the costs of such a program would still clearly outweight the benefits. It is clear that groups pushing for the legalization of "hemp for fiber" are simply looking for a loop hole in the law so they can legally grow and smoke marijuana. Don't be fooled!
