FDA attacks CBD

Acting as the fascist enforcer in the Big Pharma protection racket, the FDA is whining that natural cannabinoids are "unapproved drugs."

The U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) claims that its mission is to keep Americans safe through "rigorous public health standards." That's a good PR line for sure; give us more money and power or else . . .

And along these lines, the FDA has even used the boogeyman of "terrorism" to scare and threaten people -- to get its way. Never mind that we have 35,000 dead Americans a year from FDA-approved antibiotics. Or more broadly, how about 100,000 deaths and at least 2,000,000 injuries each year due to prescription drugs in the U.S.? . . . all FDA approved as "safe and effective."

Talk about a real terrorist's dream!

CBD refers to commodities containing cannabidiol.

In a recent press release, the FDA has warned 15 companies on safety concerns over cannabidiol products, claiming they're being sold "illegally."

Can you say, cutting in on Big Pharma's action?

In an open/free market, herbal and botanical remedies are beyond the reach of officious FDA bureaucrats . . . and the profit/loss statements of the gargantuan, economically-fascist drug firms.

Ethan Huff of Natural News views the latest FDA action as an attack on these innate medicines. Botanicals like cannabis are natural -- not like the synthetic stuff coming out of the frankenstein laboratories of the pharmaceutical companies; witness their SSRI's as the enabler in gun violence.

Huff claims that the FDA "doesn't actually care about your health," pointing out that -- importantly -- in states where cannabis is fully legal, "deaths from FDA-approved pharmaceuticals are down significantly"; that when Americans have the right to choose between synthetic and natural remedies, they "tend to live rather than die."
