Breakin' the Law!

Yes, it is the dreaded aloe vera plant. One of the most dangerous plants to ever have in your house that helps burns.

Why, you say?

Turns out it's illegal.

Did you know that? I didn't know that.

Apparently it falls under the same classification of marijuana in the Controlled Substances Act signed into law in 1970.

So, hey grandmas everywhere- beware. You're breaking the law.

It's true. I read it on the internet so of course it's true. The supreme court wouldn't even make an exception.
Did you even know aloe went to the Supreme Court? Apparently so.
In 2001.

Here's the article to back all this up.

*******************************************************************************************************

OK, so maybe I jumped the gun a little. I did some checking and I don't think that article is telling the truth.
Aloe is mentioned NOWHERE in the Controlled Substances Act.
Grandmas everyone, I guess you are OK.
Maybe that's why you can buy lotion with aloe in it.
This is so disappointing.
The internet lied to me.
I don't know if I can trust it anymore.

  2. I would have believed it. The government is paranoid about drugs.

  9. Manzanita, It is illegal to inject it. As long as you don't do that you're good.
