Truth in Media: Feds Says Cannabis Is Not Medicine While Holding Patents on Cannabis as Medicine



Federal Pot Patent #6,630,507 October 7, 2003
uspto.gov/6630507
Assignee: The United States of America as represented by the Department of Health and Human Services (Washington, DC)

Cannabinoids have been found to have antioxidant properties, unrelated to NMDA receptor antagonism. This new found property makes cannabinoids useful in the treatment and prophylaxis of wide variety of oxidation associated diseases, such as ischemic, age-related, inflammatory and autoimmune diseases. 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.


Federal Pot Patent #6,410,588 June 25, 2002
uspto.gov/6410588
Assignee: The Mathilda and Terence Kennedy Institute of Rheumatology (London, GB)
Yissum Research and Development Company of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem (Jerulasem, IL)

The application relates to the identification that cannabinoids, such as cannabidiol can be used to treat inflammatory diseases. Cannabinoids for use in treating inflammatory diseases, methods of treating inflammatory diseases and cannabinoids in combination with pharmaceutically acceptable carriers are claimed.

1. Strictly speaking, that is not a contradiction

 


Mold is not a medicine:



Penicillin obtained from mold is a medicine:



Neither of the patents are for cannabis, but for chemicals derived from cannabis.

2. Call it whatever you want

The Feds said "there is no medical use for marijuana" while holding 2 patents on the main ingredient in marijuana and busting state legal dispensaries.

3. Solid video. We are in a corporate state, and this is an example...

 

of how the CS operates: Law enforcement is used to hold people at bay as corporations settle comfortably on the pot and do their bidness. It will be interesting to see if aggressive state action like in CO & WA will translate into a stiff-arm of the feds in at least a few areas. Unlike in most other states, there is a modicum of opposition to corporate statism in CO & WA.
