Is the FDA, CDC and Congress engaged in a converse / incongruous to either reduce or promote harmful chemical substances that may lead to drug addictions, medical problems and early death of its citizens?

The Chicago Tribune – Yahoo article titled: New type of cigarette that helps you smoke less debuts in Chicago stores, reported

The cigarettes contain 95% less nicotine than traditional cigarettes.

The Purpose of This Post

Is to relate an ancient wisdom verse and word definitions to this conundrum?

King Solomon

Then I applied myself to the understanding of wisdom, and also of madness and folly, but I learned that this, too, is a chasing after the wind. (Ecclesiastes 1:17)

Definition of converse (Entry 3 of 4) – Merriam Webster

: something reversed in order, relation, or action: such as

Definition of incongruous

: lacking congruity: such as

a: not harmonious : INCOMPATIBLE incongruous colors

b: not conforming : DISAGREEING conduct incongruous with principle

c: inconsistent within itself an incongruous story

d: lacking propriety : UNSUITABLE incongruous manners

What’s My Point?

After millions of Americans become addicted to the chemical substance of nicotine and sickness of tars from cigarettes, the USA government sued and obtain millions in judgements against private industry cigarette suppliers after the deadly effects of lung cancer caused early deaths and medical costs to addicted users.

Now Federal Congress want Stats to promote and profit by approving a Bill to mandate all States must promote recreational marijuana in our Nations. Marijuana is a chemical substance that contains THP, the brain altering chemical which sellers are now competing to increase to lure a user’s greater mind-altering pleasures which will result in significant number of users to become addicted to marijuana by ingesting smoke into their lungs, to cause the same deadly medical effects as cigarettes.

Or in other words, government has conversed or reversed in order in relation to profit by aiding its citizens to ingest mind altering harmful chemical substances which are known to lead to addiction, medical costs over time, and early deaths.

To add to the converse, the Federal House of Representatives this month passed a Bill to override State governments to mandate all States to legalize recreational marijuana in the entire USA.

My point is to present this conundrum for interested readers to discern the wisdom or folly of House of Representatives in Washington DC passing a Bill to mandate States governments to converse the Federal FDA or CDC Agencies warnings recommendations supposedly to inform the public to prevent more users from addition of cigarettes.

While at the same time marijuana suppliers are competing with each other to add higher and higher amounts of THP to entice marijuana users’ brains to be altered for recreational purposes, become addicted, and result in higher medical costs and early deaths.

In My Opinion

Sad.

You Decide

Did the Federal Congress leaders just pass a Bill to mandate all States to act in converse / incongruous to override the warnings of the Federal agencies of the FDA and CDC to promote a harmful chemical substance for its citizens to get sick and die sooner similar to “chasing after the wind”?

Or in other words, is promoting mind destructive drugs for recreational use without truthful warnings to potential users be compared to the same ‘madness and folly’ observed by King Solomon three thousand years ago in our contemporty times??
