Back before rigid cardboard containers, cigarettes were only sold in soft packs. Distributors needed something to keep the packs from bending, so cards were added as stiffeners.

We should seriously ask ourselves questions like: Why is the DEA so opposed to further scientific and medical research regarding cannabis? What sort of influence does $100 million a year for the past 13 years buy one in Washington [that is the aggregate annual amount spent by the pharmaceutical/health products industry]?

Are these questions not intimately related? Who are we to turn and to what politician who will speak their conscience regarding these REAL issues?
