Default Government-sponsored study destroys DEA’s classification of marijuana

A government-sponsored study published recently in The Open Neurology Journal concludes that marijuana provides much-needed relief to some chronic pain sufferers and that more clinical trials are desperately needed, utterly destroying the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency’s (DEA) classification of the drug as having no medical uses.

While numerous prior studies have shown marijuana’s usefulness for a host of medical conditions, none have ever gone directly at the DEA’s placement of marijuana atop the schedule of controlled substances. This study, sponsored by the State of California and conducted at the University of California Center for Medicinal Cannabis Research, does precisely that, driving a stake into the heart of America’s continued war on marijuana users by calling the Schedule I placement simply “not accurate” and “not tenable.”

Reacting to the study, Paul Armentano, director of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML), told Raw Story that the study clearly proves U.S. drug policy “is neither based upon nor guided by science.”

The new president of Mexico has stated that Mexico will no longer attempt to control the Drug Cartels smuggling of drugs across the Mexican /USA border.

This is NOW a good time to legalize Marijuana in this country. Why??? Because most of the Mexican Drug Cartels money comes from the sale of Marijuana (over 50%).

Making the growing and sale of Marijuana legal in this country will greatly reduce the amount of money the Drug Cartels will make, which will also reduce their control over the Mexican people ...... PLUS, greatly reduce the load carried by the U.S. Border Patrol in controlling illegal drugs .... AND provide more Border Patrol agents to stop illegal aliens coming across the border.

It was legal until the '30's,then the DEA was created and they needed a reason to exist. "Reefer Madness" makes me laugh, and I never smoked anything.

The only bad side effect I have observed is the tendency to increase the percentage of Democrat Voters in regions where it is used a lot.
Boston and San Fransisco are #1 and #2 for pot consumption and look who they keep voting into office.
Not saying it would make a Right Wing Gun owning, Bible Reading person vote for Obama, but those on the fence would tend to lean toward him.

Eat it instead of smoke it, it won't harm your lungs.
Is that why Bill Clinton not inhale? Beacaue he ate it?

The banning of Marijuana is (also) by UN treaty. This complicates matters for countries attempting to legalize.

Israel has produced a version with little to no THC for medicinal use. Not useful for pain, but very useful for chemo-induced nausea.

I say screw taxed. If you want to grow it in your backyard you should be able to do it. It should not be any different from any other vegetable. I am not a smoker. We have to many Gov't reps up there already screwing off. They just shuffle papers around, and look busy. This country needs people that work, and not more phony beaurocrat jobs that create nothing.

I went to college and stuff. But i dont want to see it completely legalized. More like just decriminalized. If you want to grow you own and smoke your own go ahead.

can't "make it legal".

They can only make it illegal.

Freedom is the default. Government GIVES nothing. They can only remove/restrict/infringe

May sound like a distinction without a difference, but controlling the lexicon controls the argument.

The "schedule" class has nothing to do with possible medical uses. It falls into the class it does because there is no "legal" purpose for the drug. During WWII the US government allowed controlled growing of hemp to make rope. The way they tested the drug levels of the crops was to put some cut plants in an aquarium with fish. If the fish died, the drug content of the plants was too high and those crops were destroyed. Canada allows controlled growing of hemp. Canada has an allowed level of the drug THC in the hemp crops. The hemp crops often go over the Canadian limit and those crops are destroyed.

Umm thats a big WRONG there good buddy, this is right off the a dea web site:
http://www.deadiversion.usdoj.gov/schedules/index.html

Definition of Controlled Substance Schedules

The drugs and other substances that are considered controlled substances under the CSA are divided into five schedules. A listing of the substances and their schedules is found in the DEA regulations, 21 C.F.R. Sections 1308.11 through 1308.15. A controlled substance is placed in its respective schedule based on whether it has a currently accepted medical use in treatment in the United States and its relative abuse potential and likelihood of causing dependence. Some examples of controlled substances in each schedule are outlined below.


NOTE: Drugs listed in schedule I have no currently accepted medical use in treatment in the United States and, therefore, may not be prescribed, administered, or dispensed for medical use. In contrast, drugs listed in schedules II-V have some accepted medical use and may be prescribed, administered, or dispensed for medical use.

Schedule I Controlled Substances


Substances in this schedule have a high potential for abuse, have no currently accepted medical use in treatment in the United States, and there is a lack of accepted safety for use of the drug or other substance under medical supervision.

Some examples of substances listed in schedule I are: heroin, lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD), marijuana (cannabis), peyote, methaqualone, and 3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine (“ecstasy”).

Schedule II Controlled Substances


Substances in this schedule have a high potential for abuse which may lead to severe psychological or physical dependence.

Examples of single entity schedule II narcotics include morphine and opium. Other schedule II narcotic substances and their common name brand products include: hydromorphone (Dilaudid®), methadone (Dolophine®), meperidine (Demerol®), oxycodone (OxyContin®), and fentanyl (Sublimaze® or Duragesic®).

Examples of schedule II stimulants include: amphetamine (Dexedrine®, Adderall®), methamphetamine (Desoxyn®), and methylphenidate (Ritalin®). Other schedule II substances include: cocaine, amobarbital, glutethimide, and pentobarbital.

Schedule III Controlled Substances


Substances in this schedule have a potential for abuse less than substances in schedules I or II and abuse may lead to moderate or low physical dependence or high psychological dependence.

Examples of schedule III narcotics include combination products containing less than 15 milligrams of hydrocodone per dosage unit (Vicodin®) and products containing not more than 90 milligrams of codeine per dosage unit (Tylenol with codeine®). Also included are buprenorphine products (Suboxone® and Subutex®) used to treat opioid addiction.
Examples of schedule III non-narcotics include benzphetamine (Didrex®), phendimetrazine, ketamine, and anabolic steroids such as oxandrolone (Oxandrin®).

Schedule IV Controlled Substances


Substances in this schedule have a low potential for abuse relative to substances in schedule III.

An example of a schedule IV narcotic is propoxyphene (Darvon® and Darvocet-N 100®).

Other schedule IV substances include: alprazolam (Xanax®), clonazepam (Klonopin®), clorazepate (Tranxene®), diazepam (Valium®), lorazepam (Ativan®), midazolam (Versed®), temazepam (Restoril®), and triazolam (Halcion®).

Schedule V Controlled Substances


Substances in this schedule have a low potential for abuse relative to substances listed in schedule IV and consist primarily of preparations containing limited quantities of certain narcotics. These are generally used for antitussive, antidiarrheal, and analgesic purposes.

Examples include cough preparations containing not more than 200 milligrams of codeine per 100 milliliters or per 100 grams (Robitussin AC® and Phenergan with Codeine®).

Other schedule IV substances include: alprazolam (Xanax®), clonazepam (Klonopin®), clorazepate (Tranxene®), diazepam (Valium®), lorazepam (Ativan®), midazolam (Versed®), temazepam (Restoril®), and triazolam (Halcion®).

Schedule V Controlled Substances


Substances in this schedule have a low potential for abuse relative to substances listed in schedule IV and consist primarily of preparations containing limited quantities of certain narcotics. These are generally used for antitussive, antidiarrheal, and analgesic purposes.

Examples include cough preparations containing not more than 200 milligrams of codeine per 100 milliliters or per 100 grams (Robitussin AC® and Phenergan with Codeine®).
You posted it. Right under, "Schedule I."

Quote:
Drugs listed in schedule I have no currently accepted medical use in treatment in the United States and, therefore, may not be prescribed, administered, or dispensed for medical use. In contrast, drugs listed in schedules II-V have some accepted medical use and may be prescribed, administered, or dispensed for medical use.

Schedule I Controlled Substances


Substances in this schedule have a high potential for abuse, have no currently accepted medical use in treatment in the United States, and there is a lack of accepted safety for use of the drug or other substance under medical supervision.

Some examples of substances listed in schedule I are: heroin, lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD), marijuana (cannabis), peyote, methaqualone, and 3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine (“ecstasy”).
It falls in schedule I because there is no accepted medical use or safety standards for its use.

Ahhhh my bad I misunderstood what you were saying. I thought you meant the classifications themselves had nothing to do with possible medical uses. So ya your right and I was wrong.
