The brief history of Cannabis and the United States is well documented. Including the fact that the United States has a U.S. Patent for the Cannabis plant and all its components. It is filed under the following:
Cannabinoids as antioxidants and neuroprotectants US 6630507 B1.
Under this patent resides the legal rights of the United States government to produce, manufacture, and distribute Cannabis and it's organic, and lab created synthetic components for research and possible profits.
The questions posed are as follows: If an ancient medicinal nonindigenous plant can be patented by our federal government, distributed in the USA to several medical cannabis patients through this IND program; yet not made available to other patients, what made those patients better suited for the program? And why are other medically challenged, and chronic pain suffering individuals not eligible?
Why are there no other patents for other herbs, plants that are also considered medicinal?
Why were these the only patients chosen out of millions of people who suffer from chronic illness? WHY are others not being given the same compassionate care?
These are ALL legitimate questions to which, only logical individual consciousness can answer.
The interest in fair and equal treatment for ALL is what Kali Durga Grass Roots LLC. the organization is all about. Consciousness, education, and transparency. Why shouldn't everyone eat at the table?

Cannabis & Religion – Part One the
"Religious groups use cannabinoids (and similar substances) in their rites for many reasons: To commune with gods, nature and one another. As a path to enlightenment, for initiation, anointing new members, as a companion to prayer, to celebrate holidays or special occasions. Some consider cannabis a sacrament akin to communion. Marijuana has also enhanced certain cults’ “sacred sex” rituals.
Since religions are so closely invested in the physical health of their adherents, cannabis has often been used as a medication for members’ well-being".

The Endocannabinoid system
"What is the endocannabinoid system?
The endocannabinoid system is an integral part of our physiology, and appeared much earlier in evolutionary history than the cannabis plant, as indicated by their presence in so many life forms, even very simple marine organisms.
It is more accurate to say that the cannabis plant evolved to produce compounds that are remarkable biochemical mimics of the eCbs:" Excerpt from Ed Rosenthal's Marijuana Growers Handbook.

Cannabidiol: The Wonder Drug of the 21st Century?
"The traditional use of Cannabis as an analgesic, antiasthmatic, and anti-rheumatic drug is well established. This British study also suggests that cultivation of Cannabis plants rich in Cannabidiol (CBD) and other phenolic substances would be useful not only as fiber producing plants but also for medicinal purposes in the treatment of certain inflammatory disorders. CBD was found to be more effective than aspirin as an anti-inflammatory agent. "Analgesic and Anti-inflammatory Activity of Constituents of Cannabis Sativa L.," E.A. Formukong, A.T. Evans, and F.J. Evans, Inflammation, Vol. 4, 1988, pp. 361-371.
