did you hear
The DEA recently released a new updated “Slave Convention,” where your bodily autonomy is violated and it’s called a “crime”—you give up your freedom under the Twelfth Amendment and become the property of the state.
Their latest update comes in retaliation Delta-8 THC Market Vulnerability.
Allow me to summarize an article Originally published in Marijuana Moment.
The DEA is at it again, fellow cannabis enthusiasts. According to recent reports, the Drug Enforcement Administration is preparing to propose new rules that would label synthetically manufactured cannabis substances, such as Delta 8 THC, as a prohibited controlled substance. What a joy!
During the agency’s supply chain conference, Terrance Boos, chief of drug and chemical evaluation for the Drug Enforcement Administration, revealed his plans to adjust regulations for cannabis ingredients based on recommendations from the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). One of the proposed changes is to “remove the CBD control of up to 0.1 percent THC”. In other words, they want to loosen the grip on CBD a bit, but don’t get too excited — it’s a small step in the right direction.
The intent of these new rules, they claim, is to provide clarity and eliminate confusion surrounding the legal status of various types of cannabis. Since the federal legalization of cannabis and Derivatives under the Farm Act 2018The market for hemp products has exploded. However, the advent of intoxicating cannabinoids such as delta-8 THC has caused quite a stir, prompting legislators in various states to scramble and create a chaotic patchwork of regulations for these products.
Here’s the thing, my friends: Delta-8 THC is naturally present in hemp in trace amounts, and The DEA previously confirmed that these natural ingredients were unregulated. But hold on to your hats because they are about to drop the hammer. The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) wants to crack down on “synthetic delta-8 THC,” which is produced through a chemical process that turns cannabidiol into this wonderful compound.
They argue that synthetic THCs, such as delta-8-THC, are not exempt from Controlled Substances Act (CSA)unlike their naturally produced counterparts.
Basically, they closed the “loophole” with the Delta 8 legal case.
Now, let’s take a moment to appreciate the sheer brilliance of this movement. The Drug Enforcement Administration, in its boundless wisdom, wants to get a tight grip on a compound that could be obtained naturally from a plant but suddenly deemed dangerous when synthesized in a lab. It is as if they are bent on making our lives as difficult as possible with complete disregard for scientific evidence and people’s will.
But we do know that the Controlled Substances Act did not use science or reason at its core. We know that the CSA is just a tool for the downtrodden
But fear not, dear readers, because the battle is not lost. The final rule from the DEA has not yet been revealed, and we must remain vigilant and united in our fight for cannabis freedom. Additionally, there are potential changes on the horizon with the next iteration of the farm bill and President Biden’s revision of marijuana scheduling. These developments could shape the landscape of cannabis regulation and have a profound impact on the industry.
However, when it comes to Biden and his ilk – I’m not going to hold my breath. In fact, these guys are trying to set it up so that the pharma corporation can take major control of the cannabis industry. This is because no matter what their party colors are – they all serve the same gentlemen.
In the midst of this organizational frenzy, it’s essential to stay informed and engaged. Companies and individuals should pay attention and actively participate in discussions around these issues.
The lack of regulatory guidance from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) adds to the confusion. the The US Food and Drug Administration has not yet established clear rules for hemp-derived CBD productsleaving businesses and consumers in limbo, but again, this isn’t surprising either.
The FDA has the power to reschedule cannabis and provide much-needed regulatory clarity. Unfortunately, however, they claim they lack the authority to do so without congressional support. Meanwhile, the DEA, which holds the keys to rescheduling the kingdom, insists on relying on the FDA’s scientific review before making any moves. It’s a never-ending cycle of finger-pointing and bureaucratic ineptitude, leaving us stuck in a quagmire of uncertainty. Oh, the joys of government bureaucracy at its finest!
This is also by design. It’s no coincidence that the Food and Drug Administration – which is mainly funded by pharma – somehow can’t get a “safety profile” for cannabis after decades and decades of research. But magically, as if they were being paid their billions — they could quickly track down a vaccine that was neither effective at stopping transmissions nor did it do much better than natural immunity experimentally.
But I digress.
While we prepare ourselves for The DEA’s final rule on industrial hempRemember that application resources are limited. The FDA is likely to focus on public safety and legality concerns, as evidenced by joint enforcement actions in Minnesota. The final decision rests with the DEA, and we can only hope that they will come to their senses and acknowledge the absurdity of their current position.
So, my friends, let’s stand together in defiance of the DEA’s attempts to stifle our freedom and enjoyment of cannabis. We must remain informed, engaged, and vocal in our opposition to these strict regulations.
But let’s dive into how this will affect the cannabis industry, especially in states that don’t have cannabis laws on the books.
How will this change affect legal THC?
Well, in short, the DEA has given themselves the power to go out and bust any sales of “not normal” Delta-8s. How they’ll prove this is yet to be determined, but essentially, you can expect them to launch raids or at least send “cease and desist” letters to those organizations that are currently selling to them.
But this only speaks of legal institutions. The real victims here are the people who need access to cannabis in prohibition countries.
You see, Delta-8 THC, a cannabinoid derived from hemp, provides a legal way for individuals, including veterans and those with chronic pain, to access the therapeutic benefits of cannabis without running afoul of strict state laws. She was a ray of hope, a ray of light in the darkness of prohibition.
But alas, the DEA, in its insatiable need to stay relevant and project its power, decided to crush that hope.
By classifying Delta-8 THC as illegal, they have effectively cut off the legal option for those who rely on its medicinal properties. Once again, individuals in prohibition countries are forced to seek illegal sources for their cannabis needs. It’s a tragic cycle, my friends, one that perpetuates the black market and denies people access to safe and regulated products.
The DEA’s decision is particularly frustrating because it ignores the growing acceptance and tolerance of adult drug use in our society.
As more and more states adopt cannabis legalization, the DEA seems to be clinging tightly to the relics of a bygone era. Instead of adapting to the changing times and recognizing the potential benefits of cannabis, they have chosen to stifle progress and maintain their grip on power.
In doing so, the DEA not only undermines the rights of individuals to make informed choices about their well-being, but also perpetuates the harms of the black market. It’s a losing situation, my friends.
Those who need cannabis for medicinal purposes are left without legal options, and the black market is thriving again, with all its associated risks and risks.
So, we find ourselves in a familiar situation, caught in the crossfire of outdated policies and misguided attempts to control what people choose to put in their bodies.
It’s a frustrating fact, but one that strengthens our resolve to stand up for sensible drug policies and the rights of individuals to access substances that can improve their quality of life.
Dear friends, it’s time for a new conversation, one that challenges outdated notions about drugs, substance abuse, and individual autonomy. We must question the hypocrisy that exists in our society, where we are allowed to consume unhealthy processed foods and poison ourselves with high fructose rubbish, yet somehow lack the intelligence to make informed decisions about other substances.
It’s time to realize that the agencies tasked with protecting us from ourselves are unnecessary and often impede progress. We should have the right to decide what we put in our bodies, as long as we are aware of the risks and benefits involved. The freedom to make decisions about our well-being should extend to all areas of consumption, not just those considered acceptable by societal norms.
Let’s talk frankly about these issues, my friends. Let’s challenge those who cling to old ideas and stand in the way of progress. It is time to evolve beyond the restrictive mentality of the 20th century and embrace a future where one’s independence is cherished and respected.
Together, let’s stand up for a society that values personal freedom, informed decision-making, and the right of individuals to determine what’s best for their bodies. Only through open dialogue and commitment to change can we pave the way for a more informed and compassionate approach to drugs and human rights.
So, my friends, let us raise our voices, challenge the status quo, and forge a path toward a future in which the rights of individuals are paramount. The time for change is now, and together we can create a society that truly embraces individual independence as a sacred right.
