Amid drug epidemic, feds want to make marijuana even more available!

By Bob Unruh


States have been moving to legalize marijuana, once banned by both state and federal statutes, over the last decade.

The results have been mixed. Sometimes crime has gone up, and sometimes suicides have gone down. Sometimes mental health issues have surged and sometimes health problems have gone down. One factor that appears consistent is that more young people seem try it out when states don’t prosecute for possession or use.

Of course, it’s been illegal under federal law the whole time, proving that the bureaucracy is willing to be blind for some purposes.

What also is known is that modern marijuana is much more potent that the weed of yesteryear and the newest and most dangerous drug threat to Americans is fentanyl, which regularly proves lethal to users.

Now the federal government is being urged to join states in easing its rules on weed.

A report from CNBC explains the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has recommended easing restrictions on marijuana.

A spokesman for the Drug Enforcement Administration said the change would potentially expand the market for cannabis, and the impact of the statement was to send shares of marijuana companies higher.

At this point, it’s a Schedule I drug, along with heroin, for something that has no accepted medical use and a high potential for abuse.

That Schedule I designation has hindered marijuana operators and promoters, and the federal designation makes banks unwilling to provide services to what is an illegal operation.

“After enjoying a sales surge during the Covid-19 pandemic, the industry is in free fall as investors turn away and capital dries up. The industry has also been barred from accessing most banking services, or from being traded across state lines, resulting in a glut of cannabis in many states and a drop in prices,” the report explained.

The federal change could open many doors for the industry, which already is a billion dollar operation in America.

HHS in a letter to the DEA said the reclassification should be done under the Controlled Substances Act.

The change would make marijuana a Schedule III drug, which would be believed to have “a moderate to low potential for physical and psychological dependence.”

Many states allow marijuana use, under state rules, for medical assistance, as well as “recreational use.”

IMPORTANT NOTE TO WND READERS: Today’s ruling elites champion policies every previous generation of Americans would have regarded as outright evil. At the top of that list would be the supremely radioactive issue – illuminated by the hit summer film “Sound of Freedom” – of the widespread trafficking and sexual slavery of children, as well as the shocking prevalence of pedophiles in the United States of America. Indeed, the U.S. is the largest market for child sexual abuse in the world.

According to Tim Ballard, who has led many missions rescuing sex-trafficked children around the world, the Biden administration actually ENABLES AND PROMOTES the trafficking and sexual slavery of children with its horrendous border policies, its push for early sexualization of children, championing children’s “right to consent” on everything including mutilating transgender surgeries, and so on.

“Pedophiles are sitting back right now,” says Ballard, “and going, ‘We’ve been pushing this agenda for decades, and now we don’t have to push any more, because the left is taking care of it for us’ – IN AMERICA!”

Ballard’s concerns are confirmed by Tara Lee Rodas, a Health and Human Services whistleblower who recently testified before Congress that under Joe Biden, “THE U.S. GOVERNMENT HAS BECOME THE MIDDLEMAN IN A LARGE-SCALE, MULTI-BILLION-DOLLAR CHILD TRAFFICKING OPERATION.”

But that’s just the beginning. The whole, secret criminal mega-enterprise of child sex trafficking and the global elites’ affinity for pedophilia is exposed as never before in the August issue of WND’s critically acclaimed monthly Whistleblower magazine, in a groundbreaking issue titled “THE NEW AMERICAN SLAVE TRADE: How the Biden regime enables and promotes child sex trafficking in the U.S.A.” WHISTLEBLOWER is available in both the popular print edition and a state-of-the-art digital version, either single issues or discounted annual subscriptions.
