It’s only a matter of time before Marijuana is given its rightful place on the federal drug list. For years, weed has been labeled a Schedule One drug, and that’s a pretty nasty category. That’s where all the dangerous drugs call home, according to federal drug standards. New research now shows that pot offers medical benefits, and when used properly it’s a great recreational release.
A federal judge in California has decided she will hear arguments that the feds have improperly labeled marijuana because pot can be used for medical purposes. Drugs like OxyContin, methamphetamine, and cocaine are all Schedule Two drugs. Schedule Two drugs are considered less dangerous because they are used medically.
The judge is now hearing a case that has the potential to get the ball rolling so weed can be reclassified. Nine men are charged with growing pot on federal property in California, and their defense team claims the current law is unconstitutional because 23 states legalized pot use for medical purposes.
The real issue in this particular case is, did the men did break the current law? But the question is: Is the law an fair one based on current research and public acceptance?
