ATLANTA, Nov. 6, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced it was sending warning
"Seriously ill people deserve access to regulated, safe medications that are properly labeled, dosed, and do not contain harsh additives or unadvertised components, let alone false promises," said Kevin Sabet, President and CEO of Smart Approaches to Marijuana (SAM).
In a press release, FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb said, "Substances that contain components of marijuana will be treated like any other products that make unproven claims to shrink cancer tumors. We don't let companies market products that deliberately prey on sick people with baseless claims that their substance can shrink or cure cancer and we're not going to look the other way on enforcing these principles when it comes to marijuana-containing products," said FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb, M.D. "There are a growing number of effective therapies for many cancers. When people are allowed to illegally market agents that deliver no established benefit they may steer patients away from products that have proven, anti-tumor effects that could extend lives."
The claims made by these companies include:
The companies targeted are Greenroads Health, Natural Alchemist, That's Natural! Marketing and Consulting, and Stanley Brothers Social Enterprises LLC.
Let's Be Clear supports medical research into the components of marijuana and finding legal pathways for seriously ill people to access products reviewed by FDA, but these companies and others like them refuse to go the FDA route and should be shut down. We encourage the FDA to continue to protect public health.
