The Forces that Will Impact the American Economy and Therefore, the Land Market in 2019 – Week 13

The Biggest Medical Beta Test in Our History:

An article by Alex Berenson in theĀ Wall Street Journal on January 5th, 2019, discussed at length how shrewd lobbying and politicians seeking popularity has resulted in the acceptance of Marijuana (MJ) and MJ derivatives being used for medicinal purposes.

I thought we had an Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to control that process. The FDA process is so severe as it strives to protect Americans that the cost of the process makes new drugs expensive.

The statistics on the effects of using MJ are a huge source of concern. Studies discussed in the article highlighted significant increases in psychosis and violence.

“Popular” does not always mean “safe”.
