I did a search and this was posted but the thread was deleted. I was wondering if this would found to be a hoax or something or if we're just not supposed to talk about Aloe on here because it is a "drug".

Just wondering.

Washington, D.C. -- The U.S. Supreme Court unanimously ruled Monday that people using the aloe vera plant for medicinal purposes are not exempt from federal laws prohibiting use of the naturally occurring herb, which medical experts say can ease the suffering of burn victims. "It is clear from the text of the [controlled substances law] that Congress has determined the aloe vera plant has no medical benefits worthy of an exception," Justice Clarence Thomas wrote for the court.

Already posted and moved to the hoax bin, I'm afraid.

Well, it seems to be 404d across the web. From what I can tell of what remains, it was a satire article written to discuss the lunacy of trying to regulate the medicinal use of naturally occurring plants.

Ok good. After looking more around that site I can see that it is probably a hoax. Its amazing how many sites will parrot what they see from one source on the internet.

Feel free to trash this thread mods.

There is a difference between a hoax and satire. Lost on many to be sure. It's an acquired taste, like aloe and best swollowed with your tongue planted firmly in your cheek.

I understand that. Didn't know it was a satire site. Just saw someone post it on facebook and people were pretty outraged lol.

The original work may have been a "satire," but when other sites pick it up and run with it as fact, then those subsequent stories become hoaxes.
