Should DEA Remove Cannabis from Schedule I? [POLICYbrief]

The Drug Enforcement Agency lists cannabis as a Schedule I substance, meaning it has no accepted medical use and a high potential for abuse. Opponents of …


  1. The devil's advocate is out of touch. Why did the government have to lie about the risks and dangers for 50+ years if they thought it was justified to do what they did? They used purposely biased studies to outlaw it, and alot of the reason was because the old cronies in government saw the new rebellious generation using it, and realized that was the best way to crack down on protestors and blacks and keep them in jail, since protesting isn't illegal. It is law from a dark corrupt time in our country and needs to be done away with. Also the feds will owe the people reperations. They lied and it cost millions of people years of their lives. When if they left it alone, they would have done no harm.

  2. Schedule one is not what cannabis should be classified in it has many medical uses. Kept in white america its just an excuse to keep minorities suppressed. Government is the problem. They have killed may lives and destroyed them allowing trash and dangerous drugs for pain relief nausea and sleep aide. The bloods on their hands and it shows.

  3. luckily the 10th amendment does not allow the federal government to regulate this, because this power is not delegated to the federal government.

    The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

    Ego, the states have the right to, and are, regulating it in accordance with the United States Constitution.

  4. i'd also like to mention that cannabis under its current federal scheduling is being screened for on federal background checks, effectively infringing on the second amendment protected rights of individuals who choose to use cannabis either recreationally or medically, regardless of how it's viewed from state to state. if the constitution means nothing, gov officials should at least be honest about it… they sure find some sneaky ways to violate that shall not be infringed part of the law.

  5. But weed can be used medically! And tobacco products and fully be abused and that shit kills people but it’s legal….. I don’t get why the FEDS taking so long to make weed legal after all the damn evidence about weed like it blows my fucking mind that tobacco and alcohol is legal and they kill you but weed is illegal, is a schedule 1 drug, and it’s illegal🤦‍♂️ American logic
