DEA looks at marijuana

The DEA will decide whether to change course on marijuana by July

Quote:Memo also underscores how little marijuana is being made available for research purposes

Quote:In a lengthy memo to lawmakers, the Drug Enforcement Administration said it hopes to decide whether to change the federal status of marijuana "in the first half of 2016."

Quote:Marijuana shares Schedule 1 status with heroin, and it is more strictly regulated than the powerful prescription painkillers that have killed more than 165,000 people since 1999.

Quote:...organizations such as the American Medical Association and the American Academy of Pediatrics have called on the DEA to change the drug's scheduling status.

Quote:But the DEA has rebuffed numerous previous attempts at rescheduling, sometimes after decades of stonewalling, and in at least one case overrode the recommendation of its own administrative judge.

Gotta keep the free cash flowing.

Quote:The current memo, written in conjunction with the heads of the Department of Health and Human Services and the Office of National Drug Control Policy, also provides a detailed look at how the federal government provides marijuana to researchers. Currently, the government grants a monopoly on marijuana production for research purposes to one program at the University of Mississippi. "Because of this monopoly, research-grade drugs that meet researchers’ specifications often take years to acquire, if they are produced at all," a Brookings Institution report argued last year.

Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to poor

But... but...

What about the babies?

What about all the blacks and South Americans unjustly profiled and arrested for what whitey gets away with Mr. President?

What about non violent workers for the prison industrial complex?

This will not fly. It will take 200 years to another century of more research.

Let's not forget the billions of dollars in seized assets and property.

It's about time they looked at it again. They haven't taken a proper look since back in the 50's

I don't know what the ruckus is all about. In Michigan, where I used to live, they didn't arrest you they just gave you a ticket.

In some states it was made legal but the Feds overrode the States' authority and prosecuted (persecuted?) users anyway.

It doesn't take a change of laws so the FBI doesn't have to "take a look at it." All that has to happen is the President saying "Hey you guys, quit it" and the Feds won't enforce the laws.

You know, like with the border patrols...

The bottom line is the cats out of the bag, and regardless of how much politicians pandering to big pharma, big oil & the timber industry money go full retard, everyone knows it's not about genuine concern for people.
It's about maintaining the status quo.
It's about money.
In the states where it's legal, crime is way down, tax revenues are way up, and regulation keeps it out of the hands of kids as well as it works for alcohol.
This admin needs to grow the ğck up and step up to the plate.
A lot of what they have done, the tax that pretends to be healthcare, etc. may well be overturned by the next pres, or the one after, but this would be a lasting positive legacy for Obama.

George Soros wants it decriminalized so he can turn a profit from it. The admin tends to take their marching orders from him.
This could happen.

It appears the DEA is loosening the stick up their arse regarding its existing incorrect classification. With more research comes knowledge and the truth.

http://abcnews.go.com/Health/federal-rec...d=38308268

Quote: "We know that medical marijuana has good evidence for treatment for a handful of medical conditions," Hill said. "There are thousands of people who are using medical marijuana for a whole host of medical conditions," where the efficacy has yet to be thoroughly studied.

By changing the classification of the drug, Hill said researchers and doctors could find out how effective marijuana is in other conditions.

"We could move toward a more evidence-based use of medical marijuana," Hill said.

Good, then getting a prescription from one's doctor will be easier.
