I guess I was mistaken. I thought the delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (Δ9-THC) IS the magic healing power.
Shows you what I know. Turns out that Female cannabis plants contain more than 60 cannabinoids, including cannabidiol (CBD), thought to be the major anticonvulsant that helps multiple sclerosis patients; and cannabichromene (CBC), an anti-inflammatory which may contribute to the pain-killing effect of cannabis.

Indeed, it would be quite funny to execute as noted in the OP.
HA,... Ha.... Ha....
I do however think that Government has no business trying to regulate a plant. DUI is another thing. Too bad the Twinkies are gone. gone.. and in a bad way.
