How much does the pharmaceutical industry shape medical practice in America today? Legal drug companies spend hundreds of millions of dollars to promote their brand. These companies have been accused of cooking up pseudo-scientific studies to support their drugs. Simultaneously these drug lords are shaping the opinion and the reality of medical practitioners everywhere. Family practices are overwhelmed with patients and paperwork. There are not enough hours in a day for a family physician to do their work properly. These physicians are forced to rely on medical information from streamlined and convenient sources. They do not have time to devote to impartial research and study. This inevitably leads to your doctor basing their medical practice on the sales pitch from their drug rep. Pharmaceutical sales representatives are armed with studies, sales experience and an enormous budget. Elaborate luncheons are staged to push their studies and products. Generally we like to assume that studies are unbiased, a reliable source of accurate information. These studies become evidence that dictates a physicians reality. Misinformation becomes mistreatment with drug therapy. We are prescribed chemicals with a copious array of wild side effects. Nearly two in three adults in America are prescribed a drug. Almost half are prescribed two or more drugs. Culturally we have come to expect colorful and often fatal side effects with our medicine. Dizziness, blurred vision, ulcers, chronic diarrhea, headaches, back pain, thoughts of suicide, and risk of death have become the norm. Medicine is responsible for 75 fatal drug overdoses every day. Medicine also creates symptoms requiring other medication to treat, which in turn creates more symptoms needing more medication. It is a vicious cycle that victimizes the people. Immoral greed, a lust for money forsaking the well-being of humankind causes the corruption. Everything coalesces into irresponsible medical treatment of Americans. Medical treatment based on misinformation and willful wickedness, only to maximize profit for wealthy elite powerhouse groups. They are willing to promote unsafe and addictive chemicals, call it medicine, and subliminally ram it down our throats on television and in our doctors office. If the pharmaceutical industry is willing to promote their product despite knowing the harmful end-game, what wouldn’t they be willing to do? You can bet the farm they would be willing to wage war on their competition. One competitor, a beast of an adversary, the natural cannabis plant. This plant would cost big pharma hundreds of millions, maybe billions over decades. Cannabis grows outdoors naturally, almost anywhere, nearly free. Cannabis is a hearty, robust plant. A poor man only needs a seed, a bucket of dirt, water and sunshine (basically) to treat dozens of medical conditions. This should be an inalienable right. A born right to utilize the splendor of this beautiful creation. It is an unnatural, uncivilized culture that prohibits critical beneficial natural flowers for medicine. Spread the word to end the corruption today!

The price of black market medical grade cannabis is like, WOAH! The price is astronomical. Most folks cannot afford to pay market price, therefore cannot afford the medicine. Prohibition is the root cause of this ridiculousness. Every piece of the process has an embedded tax determined by the underground. Producing and distributing cannabis is illegal. The entire industry working underground to provide the bag to your dealer is violating federal law. With underground work comes great risk, risk of life and liberty. These risks are very real and we pay for them, literally. Grow supply distributors and retail establishments command a strong price because of the nature of their business. Property owners want more spoils, growers work hard and expect high rewards. The markup compounds on the street. The dealer taxes it, the dealer’s dealer taxes it, and the dealer’s dealer’s dealer taxes it. Depending on how close you are to the source, you can be more or less affected by the price gouging. Ultimately, the result is the most expensive commodity only behind gold and platinum. Typically, small quantities of cannabis are bought and sold by the gram. Twenty bucks will get you the weight of a dollar bill (a gram) in medical cannabis on the street. Do not blame your connection, blame the system. 75 years of prohibition, 75 years of sending suppliers to prison drove up the price. Cannabis is a commodity, in legal commodity markets other robust plants like corn are selling as low as 10 pounds for one US dollar. 10 pounds of medical cannabis bought in bulk may go for more than $20,000, at $20 per gram 10 pounds of medical cannabis costs $90,000. Legalizing cannabis would cause the price to plummet. Users could purchase their affordable medication from a safe and controlled environment instead of dealing with the sometimes unreliable underground market. Furthermore, lower income families using substandard commercial pot would be able to afford high quality medicine. Let’s legalize cannabis because it’s common sense. Let’s give the people a more reliable and affordable way to secure their medicine.
