CBD’s and the “War on Drugs”

Ben Swann’s latest effort, published on just September 16, 2014, is an investigative effort surrounding the medical benefits of CBD’s, or Cannabinoids and the ongoing and evolving framing of “marijuana” and its constituent chemical compounds within the media and social debate.

This latest effort, “Feds Says Cannabis Is Not Medicine While Holding The Patent on Cannabis as Medicine” is Ben Swann’s contribution to this evolving debate, and quite a powerful piece of journalism is this contribution.

Funded through “crowd sourcing“, “Feds Says Cannabis Is Not Medicine While Holding The Patent on Cannabis as Medicine” is an excellent introductory report on the evolving understanding of the medical benefits of marijuana.


Ben Swann’s interview on ITEL Radio was fast and informative, covering this key issue, as well as quite a few additional issues from America’s “social safety net” and the attempt by the USG (United States Government) to control the channels of drug supplies into the United States.
