A retraction on the subject of patents

Going back to my post on April 18 regarding plant breeder's rights: I must issue a retraction regarding my comment that the USPTO would be unlikely to issue a patent for cannabis. Further research has brought to my attention that a utility patent has been granted on cannabis - #9095554. This patent was awarded August 4th 2015.  By my reading, the patent is attempting to protect a cultivars of cannabis that have at least 3% CBD, 'non-dominant' myrcene in the terpene profile, and greater than 1% terpenes overall.
