The new lie: Smokable PLANT is not medicine

In this ridiculous post, ONDCP Deputy Director Bertha Madras has a rather silly “rebuttal” to the new study showing the value of marijuana in relieving certain symptoms in AIDS sufferers.
But the really interesting part…
Remember the recent story about how a pharmaceutical company was developing a “new” concept? It was… smokable medicine. At the time, I noted that this pretty much ruined ONDCP’s usual blather about how there’s no such thing as smoked medicine.
Well, check out the quotes in Bertha’s piece:

No drugs in leaf form are being approved as prescription pharmaceuticals…
A smokable plant is not modern medicine….
[emphasis added]

It really is remarkably funny.
