They Said It On Marijuana, Quotable Saturday, Part XCI

Medical Marijuana

Unfortunately, as good as the above sounds, coming from an administrative law judge meant that it would have little impact. It’s 2015 and cannabis is still a Schedule 1 drug, meaning that it our federal government views it as having no recognized medical value, a high potential for abuse, and it cannot be safely administered even under a doctor’s supervision.

But to put it bluntly, no sane person believes any of those things.

Here is to hoping that 2016 will, at the very minimum, see a reclassification of cannabis at the federal level. We say “at the very minimum,” because what really should happen is full legalization.
