Misinformed by the FDA

EDITOR: I would like to bring to awareness to anyone that believes our federal government’s claim that marijuana has no medical application … don’t be fooled by this. It is a fact that corporations are the primary codependent of government. When profits of pharmaceutical corporations are at risk, we the people are sadly misinformed by the FDA.

Marijuana is medicine. Millions of people are proof of this. It is time the American people and people of the world stand up after they wake up and drink the coffee they smell. Take action.

    Looks like most anything can be criminalized. New Zealand is proposing to fine individuals up to $50,000 for making a cup of unapproved herbal tea. ********** http://www.naturalnews.com/035523_New_Zealand_natural_health_Codex.html

    The FDA actually could care less about anyone's safety! I worked for a company name Innovative Imaging Inc. which was bought by Ellex Inc. They manufacture medical lasers and imaging systems. I pointed out to them that their energy levels were above the FDA guidelines and the they did not do anything to correct the problem. I tried for years to get them to correct this and other problems yet they did not. They decided that it would be easier to close the manufacturing facility in Sacramento and move it to Adelaide Australia as they would not have to answer to the FDA. This was reported to the FDA before they moved the manufacturing to Australia and the FDA could of cared less. I was in contact with them and it was passed off to the Sacramento field office and never followed up on. later I learned that the FDA actually has given funding to Ellex so go figure, you think they would go after a company they have financially backed? NO! the FDA is not for protection of the public it is just another farce of the government. Besides the High MI (Radiation) there is also an issue they have brushed under the carpet with the laser they use for surgeries on eyes, the laser in certain circumstances will not accurately follow the doctors controls via the joystick that controls the lasers direction. They say it takes several things to happen before this occurs and figure it cheaper to pay off those surgical mistakes as they would be rare, even though they could fix it but it ALL comes down to the money! THE FDA IS NOT HERE TO PROTECT THE PUBLIC

    The Journal of the American Medical Association published the following: Every year in the US there are 12,000 deaths from unnecessary surgeries; 7,000 deaths from medication errors in hospitals; 20,000 deaths from other errors in hospitals; 80,000 deaths from infections acquired in hospitals; 106,000 deaths from FDA-approved correctly prescribed medicines. The total of medically-caused deaths in the US every year is 225,000. This makes the medical system the third leading cause of death in the US, behind heart disease and cancer. "To my knowledge, not one person in America has been fired from a job or even censured as result of these medically caused deaths. The pharmaceutical giants stand back and carve up the populace into “promising markets.” They seek new disease labels and new profits from more and more toxic drugs. They do whatever they can—legally or illegally—to influence doctors in their prescribing habits. Some drug studies which cast new medicines in a negative light are buried. FDA panels are filled with doctors who have drug-company ties. Legislators are incessantly lobbied and supported with pharma campaign monies." ********** http://jonrappoport.wordpress.com/2012/03/08/anatomy-of-a-conspiracy/

    If the FDA was right about anything, attorneys wouldn't have a job.

    Hi Robert. On a serious subject deserving serious research, most of what the general population believes comes from talking points put out by the big five.

    The 'general population' is NOT a well-funded SPECIAL INTEREST GROUP. ********** "Political elites represent only the powerful special interests that write the country’s laws in exchange for funding the political campaigns of 'lawmakers.'" http://lewrockwell.com/roberts/roberts344.html?
