(NaturalNews) The state of California agreed on a referendum in 1996 to legalize medical marijuana in their state. A referendum is a citizen generated ballot that is then put to popular vote. So a majority of California's voting citizens agreed that openly selling marijuana for medical purposes is okay.

Unfortunately, Big Brother disagrees. Recently, the DEA (Drug Enforcement Agency) began raiding California state approved medical marijuana outlets and closing them down without warning. Other states that have approved medical marijuana programs are getting nervous.

Controlled Substance Act of 1970

This act provided a list of schedules placing drugs in different categories that define their use and legality. Marijuana was categorized as a Schedule I drug. Schedule I indicates that the drug has addictive qualities without any medical use.

The addictive qualities have proven to be false, and even more studies over the past four decades have proven several different medical uses for hemp with THC and other cannabinoids. Some studies (there have been more) are listed here:

Yet marijuana remains as a schedule I drug. If it were moved to even schedule II, there would be no medical marijuana raids. But the DEA goons have honored their malicious masters by not allowing marijuana to be moved to even the Schedule II slot. Who will? Congress is too corrupt.

The dark side of the drug war

According to analyst James Corbett, the drug war is a device for maintaining black market control over drug production and distribution at high prices for two reasons.

One is to launder large cash amounts into major banks; this keeps them liquid enough to loan more as part of the fractional reserve lending system, which allows banks to loan ten times more than the deposits they hold.

The other is for the CIA, colluding with the DEA and the ATF, to maintain black market high prices and to have their cash cow for black ops or covert operations, which avoid Congressional approval.

A clip of a 1988 TV interview shows Ron Paul stating that there should be no drug laws. Ron wants to decriminalize all drugs completely. This is not just because of his Libertarian "no victimless crimes" philosophy. He also wants to remove the covert cash flow enabling the CIA's illegal operations.

The Corbett video report goes through a litany of different drug running ops from WW II (before the OSS became the CIA) to Mexican cartels and Afghanistan poppy fields. Very few major dealers and traffickers get busted. Most that do are simply being removed from competing with the larger CIA cooperating cartels, who launder their money through the international banking system.

This heavy handed medical marijuana suppression is also a boon for Big Pharma's monopoly of petrochemical based toxic medicines that can be patented.

The economics of suppressing hemp

In the late 1930s, a hemp fiber removing machine was invented that promised to put the hemp industry on the threshold of becoming a major paper, textile and plastic producer. As a result of this, in 1937 Popular Mechanics touted the prospects of hemp becoming the first billion dollar cash crop.

This made some influential industrialists anxious about serious competition. Not to worry, they had friends in high places. The U.S. Treasury Secretary then was Andrew Mellon, owner of Mellon Bank. Mellon bank had some serious investments to protect among his business cronies.

So Andrew created a new government department, The Federal Bureau of Narcotics (FBN). He appointed family relative Harry Anslinger, a former top federal prohibitionist, as FBN head. Harry hastily classified marijuana as a dangerous narcotic.

Classifying marijuana as a narcotic not only killed marijuana for medical use, but it also destroyed a very promising, highly sustainable industry for hemp cultivation and product manufacturing. More details here:
