Not many people are aware that the United States government has been dispensing cannabis to several patients across the country for over three decades.  The hypocrisy of a government that seizes personal property, locks people in cages and ruins lives for doing exactly what the government has been doing for more than 30 years is simple astounding.

Thanks to a lawsuit settlement with the federal government by cannabis patient Robert Randall, a federal medical marijuana program was established as Mr. Randall was able to prove that cannabis was the only medicine that sufficiently helped with his debilitating medical condition.  Elvy Musikka, whom I am honored to call a friend, was given an unfair “choice of evils” as she would have gone blind due to her glaucoma unless she utilized cannabis, but by using cannabis, she was committing both federal and state crimes.  The Compassionate Investigational New Drug Program was thus created, leading to 30 patients receiving medical cannabis from Uncle Sam’s marijuana patch at the University of Mississippi.  Unfortunately, the program was discontinued in 1992, so only patients grandfathered in the program were allowed as the federal government quit accepting new patients.
