Who cares what the DEA, or Food and Drug AGency says, they do not make law. Has anyone took the time to read the U.S.Controled Substances Act? It has been the law of the land for about 30 years. Congress in its infinite wisdom has spoken. Pleas to read Sec. 844(a), and I quote
"It shall be unlawful for any person knowingly or intentionally to possess a controlled substance unless such substance was obtained directly, or pursuant to a valid perscription or order, from a practitioner, while acting in the course of his professional practice... We do not need any more laws or law suits. We just need an honest goverment to follow the law. Thank you. P.S. Do not believe what some jerk on some blog says, or your mother, read the law for yourself. It is easy to read any law in the U.S. that is why we bought these computers.
