Versus War on Drugs Debate

The 1st installment of Versus, The Google+ Debate Series

One question I would have liked to be addressed in this meeting, and I did ask this on Facebook with notably, not one notable reply.

Question - How can the U.S. government declare one minute that cannabis (marijuana) has no medical use, and then allow chemicals in marijuana to be patented for medicinal purposes at the same time? In my opinion, either it has medical use or it doesn’t.

Does this therefore not render the schedule 1 narcotic law obsolete concerning cannabis, or at a minimum, a conflict of interest?

Re:-The controlled substance actwhich clearly states (source: wikipedia) "When it comes to a drug that is currently listed in schedule I, if it is undisputed that such drug has no currently accepted medical use in treatment in the United States"
