Blog Reload has one great roundup of links about our misguided 'drug war'
and the manpower, time, and tax money we squander fighting another unwinnable war, not to mention the needless pain some endure and the missed opportunities for research that our drug classification system fails to allow for. For example, "Research done at the University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon has shown that a synthetic cannabinoid called HU210 makes new brain cells grow
in rat brains." I personally have to question the development of synthetics when we could be researching the plant itself, which, of course, just can't be patented.
