“A pharmaceutical company which donated $500,000 to a marijuana opposition group has received DEA approval to produce Syndros, a synthetic marijuana drug.

Insys Therapeutics, which produces the Syndros drug, funded about 10 percent of money raised by Arizonans for Responsible Drug Policy, an anti-marijuana campaign that opposed Arizona’s recreational marijuana ballot measure during the 2016 election, The Washington Post reported Thursday.
