Even the prohibitionists want cannabis off the Schedule I of drugs, so they can develop a magic marijuana impairment detector to arrest “drugged drivers.”
Maybe some of that new research Rep. Carter wants on medical cannabis will enlighten the Big Pharma Bro on his lack of actual cannabis knowledge and the low chance of abuse.
We do agree the DEA is failing the American people by leaving cannabis on Schedule I of the Controlled Substances Act
“Anti-Legalization GOP Congressman Slams DEA Over Marijuana Research Blockade”
Kyle Jaeger in Marijuana Moment writes:
(FTA) “Let me tell you, right now marijuana is a Schedule I drug,” he said. “That means that it’s for investigational use only; it cannot have research done on it.”
“The DEA is failing the American public here by not letting research take place on marijuana.”
Researchers have long complained that marijuana’s current classification under Schedule I, the most restrictive drug category under federal law, makes it unduly difficult to carry out research on its effects.
Carter said that former Attorney General Jeff Sessions “was going to address this [and] was going to say that we have a federal law that prohibits marijuana use yet we have states going out legalizing the recreational use of marijuana.”
It’s not clear what the “this” he referred to is, however. If he meant that the attorney general planned to address the research problem, that’d be misleading, as Sessions was blamed for blocking efforts to increase the number of federally authorized marijuana manufacturers that produce cannabis for research purposes. It also didn’t appear that he was about to reschedule cannabis.
Sessions is “gone now,” he said, “so it’s not being addressed,” Carter continued. “This is something that needs to be addressed by the DEA.”
