The pills they use in cancer treatments is NOT made of hemp, but is distilled THC. The problem with this is that THC can only get you high, and it's NOT what helps the nausea in chemotherapy. There are literally 1000s of chemicals and alkaloids in the hemp plant that have NOT been isolated for scientific studies. I'm sure if that was done, they could find out what it is that stops the nausea. Many people have had bad experiences w/the THC pills, and resort to getting the actual plant illegally. As you know, several states in the U.S.A. have legalized it for medicinal purposes so one can have access to the plant. And you probably also know that one doesn't have to smoke it. It can be eaten as well.
I am aware of this. I just called it hemp meaning the whole plant. cannabis sativa. this plant will never be free because of exactly the reasons mentioned in your post.
they might toy around with other things in the plant as well in the future. but still the poor person in Denmark that can not posses it or buy it or smoke it for whatever reasons they might have its terrible. we have no legal minimum amount or medicinal purposes allowed. its strictly off limits and you can get a prison sentence for large amounts or else just pay up a large fine if you are taken with it. no amount is too small for that.
we have one of the most strict drug politics in our country. and now plenty more people starting on drugs because of....well I am not sure. but as result the topic of making hemp legal is up again. and it wont become because certain interest will always prevent it.
I am not a hemp smoker myself. I still want it to be free.
