Prescriptions for opioids such as percocet, vicodin have jumped 300 percent in the last decade, and although they are the most commonly prescribed drugs on the market, they are also the most dangerous and addictive drugs, killing thousands of people every year. As patients build up a tolerance, opioids lose their effectiveness with long-term use, which encourages their overuse.
So when a plant comes along that can effectively curb pain without creating a dependency on these popular selling medications, pharmaceutical companies get very get angry. And marijuana does just that.
There is no plant on Earth more condemned than marijuana. The collusion between Big Pharma and Government is so strong that the system still maintains (through corruption) that a plant should be classified as an illegal drug. However there is an abundance of evidence that the suppression of medical marijuana is one of the greatest failures of a free society, of journalistic and scientific integrity, and of our fundamental values.
