The 15-Ounce Pound: Big Pharma’S Plan To Patent Pot By Joseph R. Pietri


THE 15~OUNCE POUND: BIG PHARMA’S PLAN TO PATENT POT-THE LEGALIZATION OF MARIJUANA AND THE LOSS OF FREEDOM-In the United States, cannabis is currently illegal under federal law; this book investigates how big pharmaceutical companies and others are looking at the end game of legality—controlled by them. It examines how the Amsterdam scene was transformed; how home growers have been manipulated into using inferior techniques; and how companies, with help from the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) and “big pharma, “are patenting cannabis strains for control and profit. The leaders of the cannabis industry want to legalize marijuana with taxation and regulation, but the pharmaceutical industry cannot take over medical cannabis without first shutting down the scene today. This book looks at a situation where major players, using the IRS and DEA as means of removing other players, may tightly control legalized production.Regulation will also control the amount of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) in each marijuana cigarette, forcing stronger cannabis to be available to medical patients by prescription only. A black market will still exist, so people will still go to jail, and the drug war will go on. With history and explosive, behind-the-scenes looks at big pharma collusion, this book is both an expose´ and an in depth look at the arc of legalization, including a corporate controlled scheme of patenting marijuana strains.Joseph R. Pietri is a former drug smuggler who is a legal purveyor of cannabisfor medicinal purposes and is the author of King of Nepal.
