HHS Secretary: “No Such Thing as Medical Marijuana”

March 7, 2018 | Posted in Marijuana | By

Last week U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar told news media in Ohio,

“There really is no such thing as medical marijuana. . . .┬áThere is no FDA approved use of marijuana, a botanical plant. I just want to be very clear about that.”

The statement echoes comments the DEA Chief made in 2015 saying that marijuana is not medicine and that medical marijuana is “a joke.”

Marijuana’s potency varies from plant to plant, depending on growing conditions.

Marijuana “doses” cannot be measured the way pills or cough syrups can. Studies have concluded that attempts to dose of marijuana are highly unpredictable.

What if you opened a bottle of Aspirin to find no two pills were the same size or contained the same levels of active ingredients? That would be unimaginable, but it happens with so-called “medical” marijuana.

We have said it for years: Marijuana may be many things, but medicine simply is not one of them.
