Many leaders and members of the public have been misled, by the well financed and organized pro-drug legalization lobby, into believing there is merit to their argument that smoking marijuana is a safe and effective medicine. A review of the scientific research, expert medical testimony and government agency findings shows this to be false. There is no justification for using marijuana as medicine.

- Ru - 752 words
Ru-486 For more than 10 years, European women have been able to use mifepristone, known there as RU-486, as a pharmaceutical alternative to surgical abortion during early pregnancy. Availability to women of the so-called abortion pill in the United States has been delayed, though, by the tense political climate of the abortion debate. On Thursday, the federal Food and Drug Administration approved mifepristone for sale in the United States. The pill, to be marketed under the name Mifeprex, will be available only through physicians. It should be available in about a month. The approval of mifepristone is the result of the FDA's careful evaluation of the scientific evidence related to the safe ...
