purposes while at the same time are the ones holding the patent on the medical use of the plant? I know about all the conspiracy talk between the federal gov't and pharmaceutical companies ( which I buy into for the most part ) One guess is that the pharmaceutical lobby came up with this idea to have the gov't patent it due to the obvious conflict of interest it would create if a pharmaceutical company so. And/or because they just know themselves how harmless it is and thus it's just a matter of time before the general public finally wins out, at which point they might as well at least reap the reward$...any other theories that might be floating around about this?

As soon as some major pharmaceuticals see that outfits like the one growing medicinal marijuana in UP mines under controlled conditions and those growing operations have good genetic control over the amount of THC in their harvests they will begin to lobby Congress.
Many of you folks still haven't figured out that even if overuse can cause harm the government will accept its use if they can tax it or in this case if forces with truckloads of money can see the potential of making even more truckloads of money.
In this hard-luck town in Michigan's western Upper Peninsula, rumors persist of a company growing pot deep in the bowels of a former copper mine nearby.
White Pine -- its schools, hospital and most of its stores closed and its population down to a few hundred -- is battered but not beaten, awaiting reinvention, maybe even if it means growing medical marijuana in a mine. A series of significant state and federal approvals would be needed to make it happen, but one executive said he could easily need 200-300 employees if his plans go forward to make that a reality.
