With New Mexico the latest state to legalize medical marijuana, the response at the drug czar’s “blog” is quite hilarious:
Medical Marijuana in New Mexico: A Triumph of Politics Over Science
Yesterday, New Mexico passed a symbolic law that purportedly legalizes so-called “medical” marijuana. According to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), these measures are inconsistent with efforts to ensure medications undergo the rigorous scientific scrutiny of the FDA approval process and are proven safe and effective under the standards of the FD&C Act. These measures are also against Federal law.
Unfortnately, this new law will frustrate the efforts of parents and anti-drug advocates who now have to deal with the pro-drug messages that medical marijuana laws deliver to the young people of New Mexico.
“…a symbolic law that purportedly legalizes so-called “medical“ marijuana …” Oh, that is rich! How many ways can they attempt to negate the truth?
