ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., Dec. 8 /U.S. Newswire/ — Drug Free America Foundation 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 from their suffering. We also take issue with illegal drug users who want to toke 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 because 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 never 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.

Ah yes, the Holy FDA that gave us thalidomide, Vioxx, Fen Phen, Ephexor, etc…, etc.., etc…

How many of you know they had to run 5 clinical trials of Prozac to get 2 that indicated it worked better than a sugar pill? The FDA is a shill for the real drug kingpins in this world – Merck, Pfizer, Bayer.
