Shady Pharma Company Sabotages Legal Weed and Gets DEA Approval for Synthetic THC
Insys Therapeutics, a pharmaceutical company that poured lots of money into opposing weed legalization in Arizona last year just got its payoff—thank you very much.
That payoff came in the form of this week’s preliminary approval from the DEA for its synthetic marijuana drug, Syndros.
Just A Little Reminder
Insys forked over a cool half-million dollars to Arizonans for Responsible Drug Policy, which represented roughly 10 percent of all money the anti-pot group raised to scuttle Arizona’s popular Prop 205 to legalize weed.
Insys was the only pharmaceutical company known to be giving money to oppose legalization last year, according to a Washington Post analysis of campaign finance records.

Silver Jack (Hybrid)
This tart and sweet and VERY aromatic strain is a combination of our Jack Herer father plant and a tall and bushy Super Silver Haze Mother plant. You better have a good odor filter because this strain gets real stinky when the SSH and Jack flowers but it is worth it for the sweet flavored smoke it produces.
Texas’ O’Rourke Decries Failed War on Drugs
AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — The Latest on U.S. Rep. Beto O’Rourke announcing his 2018 U.S. Senate run (all times local):
Democratic U.S. Rep. Beto O’Rourke has begun his longshot 2018 Senate run by praising immigrants, saying America draws strength from refugees and suggesting it’s time to “end this failed war on drugs.”
The 44-year-old, third-term congressman told supporters Friday on a rooftop in his hometown of El Paso that he will support policies embracing people coming to the U.S. as immigrants or refugees.
He promised to halt the “paranoia coming out of the White House.”
O’Rourke has been a longtime critic of U.S. drug policy. On Friday he also criticized Republican Sen. Ted Cruz, saying the state needs a “senator working full-time for Texas” rather than “serving his own interests” running for president.
O’Rourke spoke about “comprehensive immigration reform” than repeated the words in fluent Spanish.
