Update from Big Pharma

Not only is the pharmaceutical industry feeling the effects of a crumbling economy, but another item from an insider news letter reveals that the corporate dishonesty and regulatory incompetence that contributed to our housing crisis were not confined to lending institutions and those charged with their regulation.

As for the FDA. I've been less than impressed by their intellectual honesty ever since they issued a blatantly political attack on the medical use of cannabis that was carefully timed to coincide with the first day of the 2006 NORML convention, a detail apparently unknown to the New York Times reporter who wrote the story. Quite by coincidence, just about a month later, a researcher who had spent most of his career trying to incriminate pot as a cause of chronic pulmonary disease and lung cancer was forced to admit he hadn't found what he was looking for.
