Re: $1B cuts in time of plenty.

 

The Tories refuse to finance research into something that is already known to be a viable and valuable medicine — medical marijuana. But they will spend even more on a policy that has repeatedly proven to be a complete and utter failure — marijuana prohibition.

 

This policy reinforces the stigma against medical marijuana users. People may conclude that if the government won’t fund research, then marijuana is not worth researching.
