COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., July 29, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Cannabis Science, Inc. (OTC: CBIS), a U.S. Company specializing in cannabis formulation-based drug development and related consulting, applauds the Editorial Board of the New York Times for taking a strong position in opposition to current federal law on cannabis in its Sunday, July 27, 2014 publication.  The New York Times also announces a series of upcoming editorials and articles this week exploring the issue called "High Time:  An Editorial Series on Marijuana Legalization".

"The federal government should repeal the ban on marijuana.... We reached that conclusion after a great deal of discussion among the members of The Times's Editorial Board, inspired by a rapidly growing movement among the states to reform marijuana laws," stated the New York Times Editorial Board's sweeping statement. 

"As perhaps the most respected newspaper in the United States, it is more than noteworthy that the editorial board of the New York Times has taken such a strong stance on cannabis legalization, relying in part on the evidence of the success of medical benefits," said Chad S. Johnson, Director, COO and General Counsel, Cannabis Science, Inc.  "As a bell weather of the view of American citizens, the New York Times' action is yet another example of prestigious, mainstream journalistic institution like CNN and Dr. Sanjay Gupta in openly challenging the irrational federal classification of cannabis."

Also this weekend, the New York Times ran the first editorial and article in its "High Time" series:  "Let States Decide on Marijuana" by David Firestone and "The Public Lightens Up About Weed" by Juliet Lapidos.

At High Time:  Repeal Prohibition, Again, you may view the full editorial board's statement and the additional editorial and article may be viewed through the following links: Let States Decide on Marijuana and The Public Lightens Up About Weed, respectively.
