Trump Health Chief, former Eli Lilly exec: ‘No Such Thing As Medical Marijuana’

From Marijuana Moment


The Trump administration’s top health official claimed that there “really is no such thing as medical marijuana.”

U.S. Health and Human Services Sec. Alex Azar said on Friday that “we have treatments that are approved by the Food and Drug Administration that are safe, that are proven to be safe and effective for pain, safe and effective for other conditions.”

Azar, a former executive with pharmaceutical company Eli Lilly & Co., was speaking in an appearance at an Ohio medical center that treats newborn babies whose mothers used opioids or other drugs while pregnant.

“There is no FDA approved use of marijuana, a botanical plant,” he said, responding to a question from a reporter with the Yellow Springs News. “I just want to be very clear about that.”

During the 2016 presidential campaign, then-candidate Donald Trump said he supports medical cannabis “100 percent” and that he personally knows people who have benefited from it.

“I know people that have serious problems and they did that and it really does help them,” he said.

Seattle Times Opinion

From calming the elderly in residential care facilities to treating epilepsy and PTSD and cancer treatment, valuable research is finally being done.

THAT cannabis is medicine is old news. What’s good news is that modern research is being done around the world to document the purported therapeutic benefits demonstrated in cannabis’ 4,000 years of medicinal use. This research is being done despite obstacles thrown up for at least the last 25 years by the federal government.

From calming the elderly in residential care facilities, treating epilepsy and PTSD to use as a cancer treatment, valuable research is finally being done. The odds against it happening in the United States are enormous since the Office of National Drug Control Policy mandated policy is to only support research designed to show the potential harm of drugs, not to examine their potential benefits.
