Bayer Provides Marijuana Medicine to Canadians

A joint creation of GW Pharmaceuticals and Bayer Pharmaceuticals, Sativex is a mouth spray for Multiple Sclerosis sufferers, who can use it to alleviate neuropathic pain and spasticity. Sativex is made by blending pure extracts of cannabis plants, in a manner not unlike blending burgundies or whiskeys. Sativex is formulated to contain two of the main active ingredients of cannabis--tetrahydrocannabinol(THC) and cannabidiol (CBD)--in a 1.08:1 ratio, but it also contains everything else that is in the aerial parts (i.e., all but the roots) of the plant. Approved by Health Canada for prescription use in April 2005, Sativex is North America's first prescription version of cannabis. Compare Marinol, a synthetic version of THC.

In other words, certain United States Government officials are lying, using junk science to propagandize the population. They would rather throw your sick and dying friends and family members in jail rather than allow American patients to use a non-synthetic product.
