Ok, I know this was from 2003 and I have blogged several times on this amazing hypocrisy that is somehow not ever explained to us. I have written everyone I can think of, including Mr. Obama. To briefly summarize, for those of you not familiar with this hypocrisy, the Feds patented CBD in 2003. I have read this site a number of times, but for some reason, I saw it more clearly today. They are not just saying that CBD is a great neuro-protectant, they are making reasonable, but bold statements for a group who says cannabis has no value. We need to somehow make this public in a big way. I am always amazed that I never see or hear these issues being challenged and certainly not answered. Let’s not discuss the details now. Perhaps let’s all begin asking how this is possible? The federal patent site is pasted below. If I didn’t view it from time to time, I wouldn’t believe it myself, but it is true. The feds are clearly stating:“cannabinoids useful in the treatment and prophylaxis of wide variety of oxidation associated diseases, such as ischemic, age-related, inflammatory and autoimmune diseases”Forgive me, but aren’t they saying Cannabis is a great medicine?Isn’t this sort of an endorsement for Cannabis as medicine?They are keeping it for themselves.They are placing people in jail.Does anyone know any way for this to be brought to a national television audience? I am happy, as always, to be involved in any way I can be helpful. Let’s get this on national television and dare the DEA to come on the show and respond. This is the smart and right thing to do.

Cannabinoids as antioxidants and neuroprotectants
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. Nonpsychoactive cannabinoids, such as cannabidoil, are particularly advantageous to use because they avoid toxicity that is encountered with psychoactive cannabinoids at high doses useful in the method of the present invention. A particular disclosed class of cannabinoids useful as neuroprotective antioxidants is formula (I) wherein the R group is independently selected from the group consisting of H, CH.sub.3, and COCH.sub.3. ##STR1##”
