It’s been 9 years since a coalition of advocacy groups and patients filed a petition to reclassify medical marijuana. The Coalition for Rescheduling Cannabis (CRC) has never received an answer to its 2002 petition. The DEA has continued to ignore them and now they have been forced to take the Feds to court to compel them to move forward. Plaintiffs in the case include the CRC, Americans for Safe Access (ASA), Patients Out of Time, as well as individually named patients, some of whom have died since the original petition was submitted.
“The federal government’s strategy has been delay, delay, delay,” said Joe Elford, Chief Counsel of ASA and lead counsel on the writ. “It is far past time for the government to answer our rescheduling petition, but unfortunately we’ve been forced to go to court in order to get resolution.” [link to original writ]
I’m not the only one waiting on this decision since many of the pharmaceutical companies need the re-classification in order to produce and market natural MM to the public rather than the synthetic THC they now have available.
But how cool would that be if Barry and ‘Chelle got to smoke a fat one in the White House to relieve all the stress of running the USA? I’m just saying..
