    The feeling in Chicago has been that the real target was the reform mayor Cermak which the Chicago Outfit didn't take kindly to after the corrupt Big Bill Thompson.

    I noticed in the credits that screenwriter credit went to Winston Smith of the Records Department at the Ministry of Truth for deft use of the memory hole in setting the record straight in this fantastically compelling story ! Bravo.

    Certainly THC will getcha high, but I just learned (from WebMD) that CBD, though extracted from marijuana buds has zero ability to get you high, and the only medical tests that have some correlation to helping you is with epilepsy. There are unsubstantiated claims for helping with anxiety.

    A powerful new form of medical marijuana, without the high

    “New” would be incorrect but “without the high” is. THC gives you the alcohol-like high, CBD fixes what medically ails you. These days you can easily get one or the other, or a combo of the two, at least wherever freedom reigns.

In recent years, growers have bred some plants to contain high levels of CBD. Some say the two compounds work synergistically and that for many ailments, combining CBD and THC is best.

    What makes CBD especially appealing is that it doesn’t get the user high. Most recreational marijuana users want this effect, of course, but many patients would rather avoid it. This has allowed CBD to sidestep many of the political, legal and medical concerns that have hindered the spread of medical marijuana.

    “CBD has been a game-changer for medical marijuana,” says Martin Lee, the director of Project CBD, a Northern California nonprofit that promotes use of the compound. “Its safety and lack of psychoactivity undermines any argument that it should be illegal. It’s really shifted the national discussion on this issue.”
