They Said It On Marijuana, Quotable Saturday, Part CXXIV

Locked Door

Dr. Gupta’s quote is a timely one, as just last week the DEA decided not to reschedule marijuana, or in Dr. Gupta’s words, to keep that door locked. Meanwhile, the demand for change continues to rise, as several communities such as those in Nashville and Johnstown are moving toward decriminalization just this week, and the majority of California voters are on board to legalize in California this November.

What’s more, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled this week that despite the DEA’s decision not to reschedule cannabis, the Department of Justice cannot raid medical marijuana businesses in legalized states under Ninth Circuit jurisdiction (Alaska, Arizona, California, Hawaii, Montana, Nevada, Oregon, and Washington). The desired change welling up from the people will eventually lead to full legalization nationwide and will eventually force the DEA to deschedule altogether.

The door has got to be unlocked someday. We’re well past due.

  1. Let’s cut the DEA’s budget for Cannabis raids across the entire Country, start by cutting their budget so they have to start letting their staff go. It’s a matter of funding, this will work better then trying to argue with their bureaucrats ever will!

  2. They do not want to go back to the jobs they were intend for and that is crime not policing people …This would involve to much foot work and lest money and donuts …
