For hundreds of years, humankind has known that cannabinoids from marijuana are a boon to overall health, but for some reason the federal government run by a president who admitted to smoking pot in his youth still doesn’t understand this.

On Thursday, in an announcement published in the Federal Register and in a letter to petitioners, the Drug Enforcement Administration said it would continue to disallow the use of marijuana for medical purposes, claiming that there is no scientific proof that pot has any therapeutic value.

This, at a time when more Americans than ever are clamoring for its legalization, and when some states have defied federal statutes prohibiting its use – and at a time when more science than ever supports claims that there most certainly is therapeutic value to cannabinoids.

In its announcement, the DEA refused requests to remove pot from “Schedule I,” which makes it a drug that has “no currently accepted medical use” in the U.S., and thus precludes healthcare providers from prescribing it.

Regardless of motivation, the DEA’s decision puts the federal government at odds with 25 states and Washington, D.C., all of which have passed laws that allow pot to be utilized for medical treatments to varying degrees.

Is this really just a decision bought and paid for by Big Pharma?
