DEA tells Elizabeth Warren decision on reclassifying marijuana could come by July
DEA tells Elizabeth Warren decision on reclassifying marijuana could come by July


“The Drug Enforcement Administration said it could decide whether marijuana should remain classified at the same level as LSD and heroin in “the first half of 2016”.
The agency slipped this news into a letter to the Massachusetts senator Elizabeth Warren, who with seven other senators, had asked for more information on marijuana’s scheduling and about limits on medical marijuana research. The 25-page letter was obtained by Matt Ferner at the Huffington Post.

Because marijuana is classified as a Schedule I controlled substance, it cannot be used in research and cannot be dispensed in pharmacies. Its use is also more restricted than drugs in the four lower classifications, which include cocaine and meth – Schedule II controlled substances.

And while medical marijuana is federally prohibited, it is legal in 23 states and Washington DC. This means marijuana dispensaries and growers acting within state law can be raided by authorities. In California’s so-called “Emerald Triangle”, medical marijuana farmers accused law enforcement of “running amok” with “commando-style” raids………….

THis may be an end to the effects on public opinion from the 30's film "Reefer Madness".............. and DEA's priorities........ But the welcome change does not go far enough
 
We'll see where this ends up. It should be left to the States, and federally be legal, but the government doesn't like to give up power.
 
I agree, I would rather have a formal act making a declaration that we are starting to end this useless "war on drugs."

We should never, ever, be afraid of research. That's just willfully burying our collective governmental head in the sand.

Well we must remember a rather large number of folks believe in the Bible but not science............Go figure!

And just when we think politicians aren't concerned with important issues , they surprise us with legalizing DRUGS ! :roll:
 
I repeat:

Now if we could just get MDMA off the list.... :july_4th:
 
And just when we think politicians aren't concerned with important issues , they surprise us with legalizing DRUGS ! :roll:

This proposal is a very far distance from legalizing drugs, but it is a step in the right direction.

Of course it doesn't go far enough, but it may be representative a of larger change of course in the government's approach to drugs, and that would certainly be a check in the win column.

Nobody should be in prison for use/possession of drugs, but that somebody should go to prison for psychoactives is particularly grotesque to me.
