WELL, IF IT’S KNOWN ALL THIS SINCE 1975, WHAT’S THE GOVERNMENT WAITING FOR?

PROTECTING PHARMACEUTICAL COMPANIES’ PROFITS

    NORML, High Times, and Omni (September 1982) indicate that Eli Lilly Co.; Abbott Labs; Pfizer; Smith, Kline & French; and others would lose hundreds of millions to billions of dollars annually, and lose even more billions in Third World countries, if marijuana were legal in the U.S.*

    * Remember, in 1976, the last year of the Ford Administration, these drug companies, through their own persistence (specifically by lobbying) got the federal government to cease all positive research into medical marijuana.
