The agency is looking into developing plants with altered versions of THC -- the main psychoactive component of pot -- and cannabidiol, which has medicinal applications.....
ALL THE GOVERNMENT WANTS IT TO CREATE POT THAT DOES NOT GET YOU HIGH IN ANY WAY, BUT WHAT THEY ARE FORGETTING IS THAT NATURE PROVIDED A PERFECT PLANT TO FIGHT NOT ONLY CANCER, BUT MANY OTHER ILLNESSES !!! THEY ALSO FORGET THAT THC IS A PART OF THE PLANT THAT HAS MEDICINAL VALUE AS WELL AS THE CBD'S !! THEY WANT TO RUIN WHAT GOD HAS GIVEN US TO SATISFY THEMSELVES !!
NO ONE SHOULD DO THIS EVER !!
LEAVE THE PLANT AS IT IS AND LEAVE WHAT MOTHER NATURE HAS PROVIDED ALONE !!! IF THEY REMOVE THE THC FROM THE PLANT, IT WILL NOT BE AS EFFECTIVE AS A MEDICINE FOR THOSE WHO USE IT FOR THE THC, WHICH IS AS IMPORTANT AS THE CBD'S !! OUR GOVERNMENT ARE MORONS AND ONLY WANT TO SATISFY THEIR GREED AND FEARS !!!
THE THC FIGHTS MIGRAINE HEADACHES, CHRONIC PAIN, AND SEIZURES AS WELL AS THE CBD'S !!

This should have been legal all along. What a big waste of time & tax dollars, not to mention all of the innocent people that ended up behind bars...for what? a plant?

This should not be legal. The only reason that loosers smoke pot is to get high.
And that is the only people that want it legal is ALL THE LOOSERS

One of two things......Either the guberment is fishing for people to respond so they can file charges......OR in typical guberment fashion, they are asking people to do something that they have ruled as illegal........

my friends and i have been growing our own smoke for years..even the local cops whom we all hang out with, buy it from us, nice and healthy, not like alcohol or deadly pills that folks swallow.
The us congress should all smoke a joint and chill, as they do nothing anyway to help the american people.

GOVERNMENT ISNT LOOKING TO SET PEEPS UP TO BUST THEM. WASTE OF TIME BUSTING A POT FARMER. GO AFTER THE METH HEADS IS WHAT THEY DO. TOO MUCH TAX PAYER DOLLARS WASTING TIME ON BUSTING PEOPLE AND PUTTING THEM IN PRISON FOR A FLOWER THAT GOD CREATED.

Dumb idea. No one should smoke anything. Any product of combustion is dangerious and harmful to your lungs.
