The Irony Of The Federal Government.

The United States government has been involved with medical marijuana since 1978.

They have been providing marijuana joints to patients for year that are produced at the University Of Mississippi. There are currently 6 patients, 4 of which are public, that have been getting joints for years.

Since it’s called the Compassionate Investigational New Drug Program, they probably need to change the name since it’s not really new as it has been in effect for the last 33 years.

George H.W. Bush closed the program in 1992 to new patients but allows the others to continuously receive medication. At its peak, the program had 30 patients.
