I sure hope they open this up to include eating and vaporizing.  They shoul
d also open it up to other benefits like spacticity, nausea etc.

But alas the DFAF and Souder are narrow minded and not interested in truth.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., Dec. 8 /U.S. Newswire/ -- Drug Free America Foundatio
supports Representative Mark Souder and the Safe and Effective Drug Act
(H.R. 5429). This legislation will educate the public about the harms of
medical excuse marijuana as well as protect the terminally ill from those
whose sole intention is to legalize all Schedule I drugs.

According to Ms. Fay, "What this Bill will do is separate the deceit of the
drug legalization advocates' hidden agenda from the needs of the terminally
ill. We have never taken issue with the truly sick who need legitimate
medicine; we take issue with the wealthy businessmen who want to profit fro
their suffering. We also take issue with illegal drug users who want to tok
up under the guise of using 'medicine.'"

This bill will direct the National Institutes of Health to examine the
available scientific data regarding the safety and effectiveness of smoking
marijuana. It will also require the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to
post this information and distribute it to public health entities.

"Accountability is key," says Fay. "If the legalizers are truly
compassionate towards the ill they should be thrilled about this act becaus
the effectiveness of marijuana for medical purposes will again be
researched. Somehow I don't think they will. For it's obvious that the true
intent of the pushers behind the drug legalization movement is far from
compassionate and not even close to being scientific."

The Food and Drug Administration and medical community should decide on
questions of medicine-not special interest groups, not individuals and neve
public opinion. Modern medicine relies on proven scientific research, not
polling results.

Drug Free America Foundation, Inc. is a drug prevention organization
committed to developing, promoting and sustaining global drug strategies,
policies and laws that will reduce illegal drug use, drug addiction and
drug-related injury and death. For more information, contact Lana Beck, DFA
Director of Communications, at (727) 828-0211, after hours, (727) 403-7571,
