Where is the Golden Goose?

Who HAS the Golden Goose and What is it?

Or are we getting Goosed by the Gold?

I have been reading about Marijuana and the uses for it which include a great deal of pain relief and anti-anxiety.  

If this is really true, then the Pharmaceutical companies will be losing a lot of money until they can get the ingredients patented and thus make ALL forms of this plant illegal.  

I do know that Marinol is a prescription drug based on the marijuana plant.  

The FDA considers Marijuana a Class 1 because it is addictive and they claim it has no medicinal value.  This makes it rough on any medical researchers as the forms and everything they must do creates not only a hardship but also a financial burden.  

Once again, due to the money trail the general public suffers the consequences.
