Why Does The Federal Government Own A Patent For Medical Marijuana?


Federal Medical Marijuana CanExplain Why There Is A Government Held Patent Acknowledging Marijuana’s Medical Benefit

The federal government refuses to admit that marijuana has medical benefits when it comes to state policy. The feds also fight any attempts to reschedule marijuana. Currently, marijuana is a Schedule I substance, which is described as:

“Schedule I drugs, substances, or chemicals are defined as drugs with no currently accepted medical use and a high potential for abuse. Schedule I drugs are the most dangerous drugs of all the drug schedules with potentially severe psychological or physical dependence. ”

No currently accepted medical use. If the feds fight state medical marijuana laws and programs, and keep marijuana a Schedule I substance, then why does it own a patent for medical marijuana? Why does the federal government distribute medical marijuana to four patients (as seen in the article photo)?

The US government obtained patent #6630507 in 2003 describing the medical benefits of marijuana, yet the people’s government still schedules marijuana as having no medicinal value. The discrepancy needs to be explained, admitted, and changed.

  1. I was always taught there could be no patent for a plant of any kind. Either I was told wrong or some one in the government has committed the crime of the century!

  2. im not sure but i think the reason is becouse marijuana is illegal to every nation in the UN. the reason is the single convention on narcotic drugs. UN created this convention in 1961 to prohibit production and supply of specific (nominally narcotic) drugs and of drugs with similar effects except under licence for specific purposes, such as medical treatment and research. and its kinda hard to do any changes to it. its also the reason why UN dont like that Uruguay resently legalized marijuana.

  3. It’s amazing how few peeps know the facts There were 13 original federal patients The product grown at Univ. of Ms. Rolled on an old cigarette machine in N.C. .300 joint canisters(8/oz.) available every month in Miami. I believe 4 patients still alive Irv Rosenthal and Elvy Musuka.The cannabis is a mexican sativa less than 5 % thc. Yes this program started in like 1972 check out DEA judge Francis Young who’s favorable recommendations totally ignored and rejected by DEA.

  4. Ya see what had happened was, they seen the potential value and put their name on it, so now when they legalize it someone will have to purchase the patent from the government.
