Moves to reschedule cannabis came one step closer, this time it was the United States of America (as represented by U.S. Department of Heath and Human Services) as they filed for the patent on cannabinoids as antioxidants and neuroprotectants (US Patent 6603507).
Now everyone is that has been taking their medicine can continue to do so, and our local and state representatives and move beyond this issue so the science can help patients continue to heal from this miraculous plant.
From jury nullification to the patent to the WikiLeaks Cancer Gate! video that has become a youtube sensation, everyone with an internet connection now knows that it’s only a matter of time before they finish the race to end this war on their own citizens and that’s the last step they’ll have to take.
“The cannabinoids are found to have particular application as neuroprotectants, for example in limiting neurological damage following ischemic insults, such as stroke and trauma, or in the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and HIV dementia. Nonpsychoactive cannabinoids, such as cannabidoil, are particularly advantageous to use because they avoid toxicity that is encountered with psychoactive cannabinoids at high doses useful in the method of the present invention” ~ US Patent #6630507
There are a number of key cases to watch out for in the near future and we’ll keep you posted on them, but many look promising, and as Missoula showed the country, they can try to arrest people but they can’t find a jury to convict anyone over medical marijuana.
While groups like ProjectCBD have been helping collected research for CBD-rich strains, the US Government also finds it important enough to collect data on and get the patent to.
Maybe they will ease up on some of the court cases pending and save money and time as well, creating the ultimate trifecta of courts not pushing through what they know juries won’t hold charges against alongside the very people that have been saying and doing the same thing for years, sometimes decades.
