Food and Drug Administration or Food and Drug Administration, has long been described as the guardian of public health, responsible for regulating everything from the medicines we take to the food we eat. But the reality is far from what it seems. Time and time again, the FDA has shown itself to be an incompetent and unreliable organization, an organization more concerned with serving the interests of Big Pharma than with the welfare of the American people.
Let’s take a walk down memory lane, shall we? The U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved thalidomide, a morning sickness drug that caused birth defects, in the 1950s and 1960s. The disaster was only discovered too late, causing widespread damage to countless families. Fast forward to the 1990s, and the FDA approved Vioxx, a painkiller that was later found to cause heart attacks and strokes. These are just two examples of the many times the FDA has dropped the ball, putting profits on people.
But it is not just a matter of historical failures. The FDA’s track record in recent years is troubling. They have been slow to approve safe and effective drugs like medical marijuana, while fast-tracking dangerous and ineffective drugs like OxyContin. The opioid epidemic that has gripped America in recent years is largely the result of the incompetence and indifference of the Food and Drug Administration.
In the words of Robert Anton Wilson, “The universe is a cosmic joke played on us by a universal sense of humor.” And the FDA is no exception. Their inability to effectively regulate the products we put into our bodies is a testament to the absurdity of our world.
In conclusion, the FDA’s history of approving dangerous drugs, blocking safe and effective treatments, and prioritizing profits over people is a clear indication of their incompetence.
One of their recent failures comes in the form of “passing responsibility” to Congress in terms of providing clear regulations on CBD.
What this means is that, for the time being, everything will remain “as is” and now Congress will have to begin deliberations on what type of regulation it is. But isn’t it the FDA’s job to provide those regulations?
If all this sounds strange to you, don’t worry – it does!
The FDA has always played an important role in preserving the war on drugs by playing the “Catch-22 of the DEA and the FDA.” In other words, when someone in the public asks the DEA to reschedule any Schedule I drug, they’re going to say Firstly They will need a report from the Food and Drug Administration.
Going to the FDA, they will tell you – for sure! We just need some permissions from the DEA. So you go back to the DEA and you say, “So the FDA told me I need something from you so they can give me access… And the DEA says, ‘No problem! We just need some studies from the FDA in order to give you those permissions…”
And then you realize that the War on Drugs was a corporate power game that basically monopolized all drug manufacturing and distribution in the hands of a few giant teams.
*cough – Pfizer – cough *
The point is, the whole system is set up in such a way that it would be extremely difficult to legalize any drug that would cut into Big Pharma’s profit margins, and those who dare attempt it will run into Blackhawk helicopters and paramilitary units.
According to MJBizDailyThe reason the FDA doesn’t want to touch CBD is because it’s related to 2018 Bell FarmThis is legalized hemp. They argue that Congress would have to renegotiate this bill in order for them to do any regulatory oversight.
And to be fair, they’re not wrong either. The FDA can’t change laws, but Congress can. the The 2018 Farm Bill made things like Delta-8 legal As long as it is derived from hemp.
So even if the FDA said anything about it, they wouldn’t be able to do anything about it.
This is an excerpt from a MJBizDaily article
Promoted by then Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and signed into law by former President Donald Trump, the Farm Act of 2018 is a massive bill that covers farm subsidies, food stamp benefits, and many other topics.
In doing so, he also predicted the CBD boom, along with the rise of the new cannabis-derived intoxicant.
since then, the The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has been advised to find out how to regulate the onslaught of CBD-containing products and other cannabinoids derived from hemp.
Rather than do so, the US Food and Drug Administration on Thursday refused to regulate CBD products including other dietary supplements, saying its current regulatory frameworks are inadequate — and that Congress should tell the FDA what to do.
In a statement Thursday, Dr. Janet Woodcock, the FDA’s principal deputy commissioner, said the agency “has concluded that there is a need for a new regulatory path for CBD that balances individuals’ desire to access CBD products with the regulatory oversight needed to manage risks.”
“Use of CBD raises many safety concerns, especially with long-term use,” Woodcock added.
“The agency stands ready to work with Congress on this matter.”
Although Woodcock did not mention other cannabinoids that have gained popularity over the past four years — including delta-8 and delta-10 THC, which can be derived from CBD via a chemical process, as well as delta-9 THC — the FDA noted “serious health risks.” Formed by the so-called alternative cannabis, reports of adverse health effects have been tracked.
In other words, it took them 4 years to say they didn’t have the tools or parameters to do the work required. 4 years !!!!
However, coupled with “epidemic” roles with a virus having a 99.6% survival rate and they could agree to boost after boost in a matter of months…
I wonder why they could approve Pharma drugs in a matter of months but not be able to tell Congress they “can’t regulate CBD” for 4 years!
The idea that marijuana can undercut Big Pharma’s revenues is an old one, and it’s a classic example of the little guy defeating the big bully. It’s a tale often told in the pages of American history, and one currently being written in the world of medical treatment.
The folks at Big Pharma have been making a lot of money for years by marketing various drugs and dosages that claim to be able to cure all of your ailments. But now that this wild leaf, this rebellious force, this green menace has entered the picture, their profits are suddenly in jeopardy.
Cannabis is an effective medicine that has been used to treat a variety of ailments for thousands of years. It is a natural remedy that has been proven successful time and time again in treating a variety of ailments, including pain, anxiety, and depression. Moreover, it is an easily accessible remedy for everyone who is looking for it.
So how does that affect Big Pharma’s bottom line? basic. Big Pharma’s profits would drop if people used cannabis instead of their own drugs. And this annoys them a lot.
Big Pharma, you see, is a complex web of interests with ties to the highest levels of government and the shadowy bottom of the economy. It is not just a faceless company. It is a massive conspiracy, whose goal is to crush the underdog and maintain a tight grip on the market.
But things are changing. People are becoming more aware of the benefits of cannabis and are demanding access to it. Even the largest companies have to pay attention when the public asks for something.
However, these companies continue to capture the majority of the market thanks to strategies and practices such as “passing the charge” by the Food and Drug Administration.
The truth is that every time cannabis is legalized, pharma loses billions. Millions of individuals can benefit from CBD, and it is a truly amazing substance. However, as it is currently in legal “stalemate”, it cannot be widely dispersed, and investors are wary of making purchases on the assumption “what if the government decides it’s bad again?”
This is also the main justification for marijuana still being illegal in the United States.
My friends, it is time for the public to override the government. We have been held hostage to a system that has been bought and paid for by the very industries it is supposed to control for far too long. Government has evolved into a tool of oppressors, used to keep the population in check and in compliance.
Think of Big Pharma as an example. They have dirty hands in every pie, and they buy the support of politicians and regulators with their influence and power. What do they get in return for this? Carte blanche to act as they please, to push their medicines and cures to the gullible masses, and extort them for everything they deserve.
So what about the Food and Drug Administration? The very organization charged with maintaining our security has failed miserably. They are so deeply associated with Big Pharma that they are unable to control the regulation of something as basic and natural as CBD. They have refused to acknowledge this wonderful plant and have chosen to ignore the many studies proving its benefits.
People, this is the current state of our government. We’re dealing with a dysfunctional system here. It’s time for us to move beyond it, break free from its chains, and take charge of our lives.
I would say Robert Anton Wilson is one of my heroes. He had a unique perspective on the world and was a real rebel. He was aware that reality is dynamic and that our perceptions and beliefs may influence it. He also showed us that the only way to change the world is to change our perspective on it.
So, this is what we must do. We need to abandon outdated paradigms and adopt a new perspective based on freedom, independence and self-determination. In order to create a new path driven by our ambitions and goals, we must reject traditional ways of doing things.
My friends, it is time for us to step up beyond government. It’s time for us to take back our freedom and our power. Because we can only change ourselves if we change the world. So let’s move and unleash the potential of our hearts and brains, and build a new reality free from the constraints of big corporations and state tyranny.
