    Earlier in March 2017, much to supporters’ bewilderment, a jury found Sam Girod of Bath County, Kentucky, guilty on 13 different counts because he failed to register his homemade herbal Chickweed Salve with the FDA , and because he sold it across state lines.

They're thugs, hired by big money to protect their financial interests. More people die of their 'approved' drugs than from car accidents - and they want to put you away for nothing? Even the sentence is outrageously severe. How do I protest? This is wrong, all wrong. I'm contacting my political contacts about this!
