Legislative Update

It's been a very busy week at the legislature. LD 1719 passed both the house and the Senate with very strong support virtually a veto-proof margin so to speak. This is very concerning as the medical program was included in this bill  for the oversight to be moved  to DAFTS among a few other reasons MMCM was unable to support this version of Legalization.   LD 1539 and LD 238 ar...

DEA Rejects Attempt To Loosen Federal Restrictions On Marijuana

Read the article HERE: by Carrie Johnson - National Public Radio

The Obama administration has denied a bid by two Democratic governors to reconsider how it treats marijuana under federal drug control laws, keeping the drug for now, at least, in the most restrictive category for U.S. law enforcement purposes.

Drug Enforcement Administration chief Chuck Rosenberg says the decision is rooted in science. Rosenberg gave "enormous weight" to conclusions by the Food and Drug Administration that marijuana has "no currently accepted medical use in treatment in the United States," and by some measures, it remains highly vulnerable to abuse as the most commonly used illicit drug across the nation.

"This decision isn't based on danger. This decision is based on whether marijuana, as determined by the FDA, is a safe and effective medicine," he said, "and it's not."
Hundreds of advocates for marijuana legalization rally and smoke pot outside the White House in Washington, D.C. on April 02, 2016.

Marijuana is considered a Schedule I drug under the Controlled Substances Act, alongside heroin and LSD, while other, highly addictive substances including oxycodone and methamphetamine are regulated differently under Schedule II of the law. But marijuana's designation has nothing to do with danger, Rosenberg said.
