Why cannabis should be classified schedule V, not I

https://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/21/812
21 U.S. Code § 812 - Schedules of controlled substances
(a) Establishment
There are established five schedules of controlled substances, to be known as schedules I, II, III, IV, and V. Such schedules shall initially consist of the substances listed in this section. The schedules established by this section shall be updated and republished on a semiannual basis during the two-year period beginning one year after October 27, 1970, and shall be updated and republished on an annual basis thereafter.

Except where control is required by United States obligations under an international treaty, convention, or protocol, in effect on October 27, 1970, and except in the case of an immediate precursor, a drug or other substance may not be placed in any schedule unless the findings required for such schedule are made with respect to such drug or other substance. The findings required for each of the schedules are as follows:

Cannabis should not be listed at all

because tobacco and alcohol are not.

The JAMA study based on a meta-analysis of 79 previously-published studies.

But we need more research. Oh wait, Congress blocked it again. Maybe now that this study agrees with the 79 previously-published studies. Wait a minute. How can their be 79 previously-published studies and still claim NO Medicinal Value, permitting Gag rules and Mandatory Sentencing for Growers? Weasels. Just American hating evil oozing lying sneaky creepy cowards.

“Look, we understood we couldn’t make it illegal to be young or poor or black in the United States, but we could criminalize their common pleasure. We understood that drugs were not the health problem we were making them out to be, but it was such a perfect issue…that we couldn’t resist it.”

John Ehrlichman, White House counsel to President Nixon on the rationale of the War on Drugs.

And later they figured out how to leverage this racists/classist crap – to effectively remove nearly all those persons right to vote…
Helping to make it just that much harder to reverse in that new political environment.
Nixon lied to schedule Ganja #1




1) Schedule I.—
(A) The drug or other substance has a high potential for abuse.


Did This Federal Study Just Imply That Marijuana Is Safer Than Alcohol?

Obama: Marijuana No More Dangerous Than Alcohol

Marijuana may be even safer than previously thought

Cannabis less harmful than aspirin



(B) The drug or other substance has no currently accepted medical use in treatment in the United States.

Marijuana Stops Child's Severe Seizures

Sanjay Gupta
"We have been terribly and systematically misled for nearly 70 years in the United States, and I apologize for my own role in that," Gupta, who penned an article for Time in 2009 titled "Why I Would Vote No on Pot," writes for CNN.com. "I didn't look hard enough, until now. I didn't look far enough. ... I was too dismissive of the loud chorus of legitimate patients whose symptoms improved on cannabis.



(C) There is a lack of accepted safety for use of the drug or other substance under medical supervision.

How Medical Marijuana Could Literally Save Lives
JAMA study was based on a meta-analysis of the findings of 79 previously-published studies. JAMA study found solid evidence that marijuana is effective at treating one big condition: chronic pain.

Marijuana ruled 'reasonable and necessary' for injured worker's pain relief

Granny Storm Crow's Mmj Reference List ~ January 2012

Prenatal Marijuana Exposure and Neonatal Outcomes
Comparing the two groups, the neonates of mothers who used marijuana showed better physiological stability at 1 month and required less examiner facilitation to reach an organized state and become available for social stimulation. The results of the comparison of neonates of the heavy-marijuana-using mothers and those of the nonusing mothers were even more striking. The heavily exposed neonates were more socially responsive and were more autonomically stable at 30 days than their matched counterparts. The quality of their alertness was higher; their motor and autonomic systems were more robust; they were less irritable; they were less likely to demonstrate any imbalance of tone; they needed less examiner facilitation to become organized; they had better self-regulation; and were judged to be more rewarding for caregivers than the neonates of nonusing mothers at 1 month of age.

Drug Worriers preferred methods of treatment…

a 4 yr old girl needing cannabis for Epileptic seizures.
☛ FDA, a subsidiary of Fat Pharma

Cannabis
* Warning Poison
* Number of people that die each year = 0
* Antidote = Coffee

Epileptic seizures: Aptiom (eslicarbazepine acetate)
☛ Suicidal behavior and ideation
☛ serious skin rash
☛ allergic reactions that may affect organs
☛ Liver problems
☛ Nervous system problems
☛ Drug interactions
☛ Pregnancy and lactation: APTIOM may cause your birth control medicine to be less effective.
☛ Discontinuation: Do not stop taking APTIOM without first talking to your healthcare provider. Stopping APTIOM suddenly can cause serious problems.
☛ The most common side effects in patients taking APTIOM include dizziness, sleepiness, nausea, headache, double vision, vomiting, feeling tired, problems with coordination, blurred vision, and shakiness.

“They that start by burning books will end by burning men.”
(German) “Dort, wo man Bcher verbrennt, verbrennt man am Ende auch Menschen.”
–Heinrich Heine (1797-1856), from his play Almansor (1821)

These fools are foolish. They contend that the apathetic view of candidates toward support for legalization means the government isn't ready for change, but this is a misinterpretation. What I'm seeing is a world in a state of change, and politicians aren't sure enough of it yet to try to make a move to get in front of it. Politicians are notorious for looking which way the wind is blowing, then running out front to look like they're leading. The fact that they're not sure what to do about legalization (the perceived apathy) just tells me that they're waiting for the right sign to move, like a bunch of freshmen waiting for the first guy to ask a girl to dance. Just wait. All of a sudden, support is going to seem to come out of nowhere.
