FTFA: Nonpsychoactive cannabinoids, such as cannabidoil, are particularly advantageous to use because they avoid toxicity that is encountered with psychoactive cannabinoids at high doses useful in the method of the present invention.

Sorry, Mr. Stoner Parkinson's Guy, no getting high for you!

Also: Cannabidiol is unscheduled in the US. However tetrahydrocannabinols, both naturally and synthetically occurring, are currently classified under Schedule I of the US Controlled Substances Act.

/also also: the patent has "cannabidiol" mis-spelled.

I think cannabis will be removed from the Schedule I listing sometime in term two. Hopefully sooner than later.

You may not know the answer, but what about Marinol? .. which I believe is synthetic THC and is Schedule III ..

How can you patent a naturally occurring process? I can see patenting something you invented, but not a substance that is produced naturally. I'm sure I'm missing something

Well Obama knows the dangers of weed first hand. One day, you're toking up, and the next, you a Kenyan anti-colonalist bent on turning America into a socialist nightmare.

Would you want that for your kids?

When a majority of the states have made medicinal marijuana legal, I think the fed is going to have to reconsider its position.

I didn't say legalize, I said take cannabis off the Schedule I listing. He can do that without Congress, which is why I believe it's likely in his second term.

Marinol is the pharmaceutical industry's (Eli Lilly) answer to those who might use pot to relieve pain and nausea from AIDS, chemo, etc. No other company has done more to block the use of medical marijuana than Lilly.

Mr Obama's record on medical marijuana is shameful. He's far worse than Bush was. All for politics. But he's the Hope guy.

IF it happens. And I say IF. It'll be between the 2016 election and Jan 20, 2017. No way he hands the Repubs an issue for either the midterms or the next presidential election.

I don't think it will happen, but that's how it could.

I think the recreational use provisions recently passed are going to force some sort of court action before we get to that point... hopefully that doesn't shut the whole thing down.

Take Penicillin as an example. penicillin is a naturally occurring chemical, so you can't patent it. What you CAN patent is a method of treatinga bacterial infection using an appropriate dose of penicillin.

This patent isn't for the chemical, it is for the method of treating symptoms using the chemical.

And on goes the cycle of it never happening. Much like marriage equality, public opinion on the issue has accelerated towards liberty, except in the case of cannabis, party affiliation has even less of a divide on the issue.
 
2012-11-15 10:44:28 AM  
so cannabis is Schedule I and thus pure evil distilled into physical form. it has no valid uses, it'll rot reality itself...and it's going to destroy the universe if not locked down tight.

But at the exact same time, it's got a ton of valid medical uses, is amazingly harmless AND the US government wants to completely own it so as to make oodles of cash off its sale and use to everyone in the world.

do I have that right? is this the view of our government?

I believe our was written somewhere that the reason Obama has stepped up enforcement is because in CA the medical use law they wrote has zero enforcement our regulation in it. Anyone can get it for any reason. Since local law has no teeth for anything, they call in Federal and the only thing they have is the "hammer".

I expect that CO with it's many restrictions and laws will be different.
