(Natural News) One of the key goals of Republicans is to limit government, end absurd regulations and set farmers free to generate economic abundance across the nation. In a stunning move led by U.S. Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky), the United States Senate has now passed legislation that ends hemp prohibition and would allow farmers across the nation to cultivate hemp.

“The bill would legalize hemp, removing it from the federal list of controlled substances and allowing it to be sold as an agricultural commodity,” reports The Hill.

This is on top of President Trump’s recent announcement that he would work to end marijuana prohibition at the federal level.

Simultaneously, the FDA has just approved the first cannabis-derived prescription drug, made from purified cannabidiol (CBD). Alongside this approval, federal agencies are reportedly on schedule to remove CBD from Schedule I status at the federal level, allowing the CBD pharmaceutical to be legally sold nationwide. (Yes, isn’t it fascinating how interesting the government legalizes something when there’s Big Pharma money at stake…)

President Trump targets Big Pharma price monopolies, opioid addiction in riveting State of the Union speech (Videos) – January 30, 2018

(Natural News) President Trump took aim at Big Pharma’s price monopolies in tonight’s State of the Union speech, promising — perhaps even threatening — to “dramatically” lower prescription drug prices in the near future. “One of my greatest priorities is to reduce the price of prescription drugs,” the President said to wide applause. “In many other countries, these drugs cost far less than what we pay in the United States. That is why I have directed my Administration to make fixing the injustice of high drug prices one of our top priorities. Prices will come down.”

As expected, Democrats were quick to attack the President over his comments, citing a “lack of specifics” on how, exactly, he plans to bring down prescription drug prices. Such comments, of course, ignore the fact that the State of the Union address is an overview of the nation’s status and future direction, not a detailed policy debate for number crunchers.

It’s also worth mentioning that Democrats usually have no idea how things actually get accomplished through innovation rather than government control. Note that former President Obama once expressed extreme skepticism that Trump could help bring jobs back to America, mocking Trump with the question of whether he had a “magic wand” that could bring those jobs back. A year later, Trump responded by signing the GOP tax reform bill into law, which has already resulted in a windfall of repatriated money, jobs and opportunities rushing back to America. (The Democrats are still confused how this happened. The idea of smaller government makes no sense to them, because Democrats have no faith in the People achieving great things on their own, without the intervention of Big Government…)
