Ed note: We can see that what science knew in the 1930's is reconfirmed today via tentative record collection in California after Prop. 215 and from anecdotal evidence. Cannabis has fallen victim to a greedy Pharmaceutical industry and power hungry politicians and judiciary. Since 70 years mere possession of marijuana can land one in jail (and join the cheap labor force) just because the US Pharmaceutical companies hates competition and loves money. We have a huge pile of money on one hand and a huge pile of bodies on the other, from all the side effects of the pharmaceutical drugs that have tried to fill the void the prohibition of Cannabis left us with. Death is very profitable so it seems. And... a dead patient never complains. Judges, politicians and police hate to give up the additional control they have gained over us via cannabis prohibition. Together they try to keep cannabis illegal in direct violation of a democratic system of government and the right of self determination, our birthright, our right to self medicate and the inalienable rights given to us by God/Allah/Jah.
Note: The Antidote has more to do with the fact that this tincture contains about 74% alcohol and served to prevent death from alcohol poisoning.
