Comment: Parenthetical remark by the Sun editor; headline by newshawk


I have a problem with studies that are related to the U.S. government
with regard to marijuana and any other institutions being paid for
research by the U.S. government.

The U.S. government has made it illegal for any independent research
to be conducted on the subject (hardly a democratically balanced
situation wouldn't you say). On a number of occasions the results have
been suspect when reviewed by the scientific community. They, of
course, have a propaganda machine that pumps out only the
prohibitionists' point of view.

It is so bad that they won't even listen to those from within who
speak against their policies but rather trash them. All of this in
America the land of Sam and the free.

Sound familiar? Say high school history around 1933 to 1945 Germany,
Italy and Russia?
