My Research on Cannabis ~ Marijuana`~ Marihuana

What Is Drug Scheduling?

Cannabis is currently a Schedule I drug. I was surprised to find this out while doing my research. The research showed that a Schedule I rating did not fit what I was seeing. There have been many petitions, and arguments, but it remains at Schedule I to this day. Why?

This is Federal Drug Classification Schedules.

With the Controlled Substances Act of 1970, a major illegal substance control campaign began. Americans have witnessed a corresponding shift of resources and public attention onto the growing problem of substance abuse and its effects on society.

  • Schedule I
    (a) The drug or other substance has a high potential for abuse.
    (b) The drug or other substance has no currently accepted medical use in treatment in the United States.
    (c) There is a lack of accepted safety for use of the drug or other substance under medical supervision.
  • Schedule II
    (a) The drug or other substance has a high potential for abuse.
    (b) The drug or other substance has a currently accepted medical use in treatment in the United States or a currently accepted medical use with severe restrictions.
    (c) Abuse of the drug or other substances may lead to severe psychological or physical dependence.
  • Schedule III
    (a) The drug or other substance has a potential for abuse less than the drugs or other substances in schedules I and II.
    (b) The drug or other substance has a currently accepted medical use in treatment in the United States.
    (c) Abuse of the drug or other substance may lead to moderate or low physical dependence or high psychological dependence.
  • Schedule IV
    (a) The drug or other substance has a low potential for abuse relative to the drugs or other substances in schedule III.
    (b) The drug or other substance has a currently accepted medical use in treatment in the United States.
    (c) Abuse of the drug or other substance may lead to limited physical dependence or psychological dependence relative to the drugs or other substances in schedule III.
  • Schedule V
    (A) The drug or other substance has a low potential for abuse relative to the drugs or other substances in schedule IV.
    (B) The drug or other substance has a currently accepted medical use in treatment in the United States.
    (C) Abuse of the drug or other substance may lead to limited physical dependence or psychological dependence relative to the drugs or other substances in schedule IV.

Now, the “Controlled Substances Act of 1970” falls in line with the UN Sanctions on Drug Policy. I started seeing a pattern here. Is an outside entity telling our country, our people, what we can and cannot do? Is our Federal Government working with them? Is it good for our people? The answer is a resounding no. The proof is there.

It’s amazing how this is very much the same as how our banking is run, and also how GMO crops are treated. What exactly is going on in this country?

Isn’t it about time we stopped adding to this?

The founding fathers would agree…..

And, not that long ago, so did the USDA:

Read the 1961 convention and judge for yourself.
