CBD chaos: DEA's refusal to reschedule marijuana molecules just the latest protectionist racket from the criminal corporate cartels running the corrupt U.S. government

(NaturalNews) Obama's war on humanity just took another great leap toward totalitarian despotism with last week's DEA decision to deny petitions seeking to reclassify medical marijuana as a non-schedule I drug.

A Brief History of the Drug War

Many currently illegal drugs, such as marijuana, opium, coca, and psychedelics have been used for thousands of years for both medical and spiritual purposes.
Why are some drugs legal and other drugs illegal today? It's not based on any scientific assessment of the relative risks of these drugs – but it has everything to do with who is associated with these drugs.
The first anti-opium laws in the 1870s were directed at Chinese immigrants. The first anti-cocaine laws, in the South in the early 1900s, were directed at black men. The first anti-marijuana laws, in the Midwest and the Southwest in the 1910s and 20s, were directed at Mexican migrants and Mexican Americans.

And to help them along is a major groundswell of public support, backed by at least four major cannabis advocacy groups that are working tirelessly to restore freedom for all Americans to buy, sell and grow all natural cannabis.
