DEA Cracks Down on Colorado Marijuana Doctors
America’s doctors can’t live without drugs. Physicians bending to pressure from pharmaceutical companies and over-prescribing opiate-based pain pills is accepted as one of the root causes of the heroin and opiate overdose epidemic, yet doctors still hand out anything that will fit in an orange bottle with a label to anyone who asks.
Just ask doctors, who admit they hand out antibiotics when it will do no good, oftentimes to fulfill expectations from patients who want something more (read: a pill) than being told to go home and rest (or clean up their diets and exercise).
Whether it’s pressure from patients or from pharmaceutical companies is beside the point. Primary-care physicians can’t survive without drugs, which is why when the DEA revokes a doctor’s ability to hand out pills, their economic livelihood is at risk.
This week, the DEA revoked the licenses to prescribe for two Colorado physicians. As the Denver Post reported, the DEA suspension is a formality, as the doctors, Gentry Dunlop and Janet Dean, have both had their state licenses to practice medicine yanked by the state.
Granddaddy Purple GDP (Indica)
Green bud nuggets begin to show purple hues as they mature on Granddaddy Purple cannabis plants. This all-Indica marijuana strain is known worldwide for its many phenotypes that include Grape Ape, Grandaddy Grape Ape and Purple Erkel to name just a few. The strain hails from the Northern Californian hills as it has for more than 20 years. It grows very well indoors, either in water, air or soil. It has a predisposition to be short in bushy, as Indicas will. A euphoric effect about the same as the Purple Urkle is produced, a devastating Indica. This is a great night time strain because its such a heavy indica buzz, with a very pleasant upper head body and warmth buzz which fades into droopy red eyes, munchies and complete pain relief and sedation.
Anti-Marijuana Candidate Jeff Sessions Confirmed for Attorney General
Black Mamba (Hybrid)
Black Domina x Blue Bubblejuice This hybrid outcross brings into play thick, potent, resinous Black Domina as the mother plant for the strain. Manicuring this one's round rubbery leaves proceeded in a halting fashion to allow for frequent washing the goo off of fingers. Copious resin production is the hallmark of this devastatingly potent strain, here mated with our homebred representitive selected for strength and aroma. Blue Bubblejuice is 50% Blueberry, 25% Juicy Fruit, and 25% Bubblegum, so then is a 3/4 sibling to famous Bubbleberry
Newly Introduced Legislation Would End Federal Marijuana Prohibition
While it remains uncertain whether newly confirmed U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions plans to unleash the hounds on the high times currently being enjoyed in legal marijuana states, one federal lawmaker is doing his part to ensure the Trump administration has no control over any jurisdiction that has legalized marijuana in their neck of the woods.
On Tuesday, Republican Congressman Dana Rohrabacher of California submitted a piece of legislation in the U.S. House of Representatives aimed at preventing the federal government from cracking down on states that have legalized marijuana for medicinal or recreational use. The bill, which is aptly entitled the “Respect State Marijuana Laws Act of 2017,” would provide the cannabis community with immunity from federal prosecution as long as they remain in compliance with state law.
Although the bill (H.R. 975) would not force Congress to end prohibition in a manner that would allow pot to be taxed and regulated nationwide similar to beer, it would amend the Controlled Substances Act in such a way that state legalization could carry on without the threat of federal interference.
