Descheduling Not Rescheduling The Plant
The Next Most Important Task of The People's House Of Cannabis.
Descheduling The Plant Is Now In Reach!
Advocates of marijuana legalization argue that the budgetary impact of removing cannabis from Schedule I of the Controlled Substances Act and legalizing its use in the United States could save billions by reducing government spending for prohibition enforcement in the criminal justice system. Additionally, they argue that billions in annual tax revenues could be generated through proposed taxation and regulation. Patient advocates argue that by reclassifying marijuana, millions of Americans who are currently prevented from using medical marijuana would be able to benefit from its therapeutic value and medical benefits.
Rescheduling would do little to significantly loosen federal prohibition or to make herbal cannabis readily accessible for clinical study. These goals can arguably only be accomplished by Federally Decsheduling cannabis in a manner similar to alcohol and tobacco. Ending Federal Marijuana Prohibition Act will finally provide states the power to establish their own marijuana policies free from federal intrusion.
A US judge says in a DEA concurring opinion that the agency may soon be forced to consider a policy change anyway based on a misinterpretation of the medical value of cannabis (referring to both Former U.S. Patent 6630507, and DEA public information).
