Twelve U.S. Senators recently penned a letter addressed to the DEA (Drug Enforcement Administration) and the Attorney General, expressing their deep concern and seeking specific information regarding the agency's approach to the rescheduling of cannabis. This letter comes in the wake of the DEA's announcement that they are undertaking an independent review of the current schedule I status of this plant. The primary objective of the Senators' missive is to promote transparency in the decision-making process and gain insights into the evidence being utilized as the foundation for this significant determination. In addition to their overarching request for openness, the Senators have also included a series of pointed inquiries that they hope to have addressed. The Senators' collective effort seeks to shed light on a matter of great importance and public interest. However the deadline for the requested information has been surpassed without any word on the status of the review, causing frustration and concern among advocates for the plant's reclassification. The DEA has yet to provide any indication of when the review will be completed or if it is even still ongoing. This lack of transparency from the DEA raises questions about their commitment to conducting a fair and unbiased evaluation. It also calls into question the validity of their decision-making process and whether politics may be playing a role in the delay.

Several senators are in such fervent support of the measure that they have put their signatures on a document urging the DEA to fully deschedule the plant all together. This letter highlights the growing support for medical marijuana and emphasizes the need to remove it from Schedule I classification. This classification is reserved for drugs with no accepted medical use and carries severe penalties for possession and distribution. By removing marijuana from this category, it would open up opportunities for further research and potentially lead to nationwide legalization. The letter also points out that turning to complete legalization still does not repair the damage prohibition has caused many American livelihoods. While legalization on a state by state basis does help create stronger economies and benefit communities with additional tax dollars, businesses themselves have heavier burdens than those businesses that are not engaged in what is considered a federal crime. Additionally, many patients who rely on medical marijuana are still at risk of facing legal consequences because of the federal laws that classify it as a Schedule I drug. Tom Howard and Miggy 420 discuss this story and other hot stories of the week on Cannabis Legalization News.
The Future of Cannabis The Biden administration's move is a sign that the tide is turning on cannabis policy. With more and more states legalizing marijuana for medical and recreational use, it's only a matter of time before the federal government catches up. The rescheduling process is a critical step in this direction, and it could pave the way for a more regulated and responsible cannabis industry. Stay tuned for updates on this developing story!

The HHS recently provided a recommendation to the DEA that suggests updating the scheduling status of marijuana. The majority of Americans waited hesitantly to see how that recommendation would be received and more anticipation was added to the mix when the memo in question was released nearly entirely redacted. In the recent weeks, some clarity has been gained and the memo was made available in its unredacted form. As we inch closer to a presidential election, this begs the question of whether this recommendation will be followed, who holds the authority on the matter, and what would this do in states that have already legalized the plant? For those unfamiliar with drug scheduling, it is a system implemented by the DEA (Drug Enforcement Administration) that categorizes drugs based on their potential for abuse and medical use. Schedule I drugs are considered to have the highest potential for abuse and no accepted medical use, while Schedule V drugs have a low potential for abuse and accepted medical uses. Currently, marijuana is classified as a Schedule I drug, along with heroin and LSD. Supporters of this change argue that the current scheduling status of marijuana is outdated and ignores scientific research that has shown its potential for medicinal purposes.
The big memo is in the headlines again this week with the announcement that the HHS will be releasing an un-redacted version of the memo an attorney pursued litigation to force the agency to produce the document. A highly redacted version was released last year which amounted to almost no information for the public. This followed a FOIA request that missed the deadline to produce the documents and was the basis for the lawsuit. The DEA has recently responded to the recommendation by claiming they are now conducting their own review of the schedule status of cannabis as a schedule I substance. Their review should be scientifically based on available medical data and public policy. This could potentially lead to a major shift in the cannabis industry as it would open up more opportunities for research, production, and distribution. The cannabis industry has been rapidly growing in recent years, with more and more states legalizing its use for both medical and recreational purposes. This memo could be the impetus for actual policy changes that lead to legalization at the federal level. One of the biggest obstacles facing the cannabis industry is its federal classification as a schedule I substance, meaning it is considered to have no medical value and a high potential for abuse. This has limited research on the plant and hindered efforts to fully legalize it at the federal level. However, if cannabis were to be reclassified as a schedule III substance, it would join other drugs such as codeine and ketamine which are deemed to have some medical benefits.

The historic memo by the Department of Health and Human Services recommending that cannabis be rescheduled as a schedule III substance has the nation on the edge of their seat waiting to hear how this is received. The DEA has ultimate authority on how controlled substances are scheduled but made no formal statement at the time the memo was leaked. Pro cannabis Representative Blumenauer and others followed up with a letter that detailed why cannabis should be descheduled but again, no formal response was given-until recently that is. In a statement released this week, the DEA are now conducting a review of the controlled substance based on available scientific data. The debate over cannabis scheduling has been ongoing for years, with advocates arguing that it should be reclassified due to its potential medical benefits and low risk of abuse compared to other drugs in the same category. On the other hand, opponents argue that any psychoactive substance should remain heavily regulated. Many colleges are now offering degrees in cannabis and funding large medical studies, which could potentially lead to new evidence supporting its rescheduling. In addition, individual states continue the legalization efforts while legalized states bring in millions in additional tax dollars.

The latest news this week comes as 29 former federal prosecutors urge the Biden administration to maintain marijuana's Schedule I classification! According to the prosecutors, marijuana has become more dangerous, potent, and addictive since its last review in 2016. They argue that legalizing marijuana has benefited drug cartels and highlight concerns about youth safety and the addictive potential of marijuana. 💪 The prosecutors emphasize that marijuana does not have an accepted medical use or safe use under medical supervision. They also warn against rescheduling marijuana to Schedule III, as it could allow marijuana companies to deduct expenses for advertisements targeting youth and the sale of kid-friendly marijuana products. 😱 Check out Cannabis Legalization News with Tom Howard and Miggy 420 to hear more about the letter addressed to the Biden administration and the arguments put forth by these former prosecutors. 📚✨ #MarijuanaProsecutors #ScheduleI #BidenAdministration #DrugCartels #MedicalMarijuana #YouthSafety #AddictivePotential #PublicHealth

The latest bill to federally legalize cannabis was reintroduced to Congress last week calling for the amendment of the Controlled Substance Act. This latest measure, known as the STATES Reform Act is one of several legislative attempts to ease federal restrictions on what is still currently a Schedule I substance. The bipartisan bill sponsored by Senator Nancy Mace was first introduced in 2021 under an equally oppositional house speaker. The New Marijuana Legalization Bill: What You Need To Know | Cannabis News We have yet to see what changes have been made as this version has not been made publicly available at this time. Senator Nancy Mace has been a long time advocate of federal legalization of cannabis. Even though several bills on the subject are under consideration, it remains to be seen which will prevail. It is clear though that the movement for legalization has grown significantly in the last few years and more states are being open to the idea. The STATES Reform Act would serve as a stepping stone towards this goal. The Act seeks to remove cannabis from the Controlled Substances Act (CSA) and allow states to regulate it in their own way. It also aims to create an environment that encourages businesses and individuals to operate legally and provides a pathway for those with convictions related to cannabis offenses. The STATES Act has been seen as a major step forward for the legalization movement, but there is still work to be done. As more states move towards legalizing cannabis, most federal bills such as these take the back burner while Congress seeks to address budget issues prior to another government shutdown.

The HHS Letter, issued August 29th 2023, rescheduled cannabis from a Schedule I drug to a Schedule III drug. This move has been widely praised by members of the medical and scientific communities, as it paves the way for further research into the potential medicinal benefits of cannabis. Additionally, it reduces the stigma associated with cannabis use and possession, making it easier for people to access and use medical marijuana products without fear of criminal charges. Ultimately, the HHS Letter is a landmark ruling that shows progress towards more sensible regulations on marijuana and opens up new opportunities for research in this field. It may also become part of a larger trend towards decriminalizing or legalizing recreational marijuana in certain states or at the federal level - something many advocates have long advocated for.

New research from the Federal Reserve Bank finds that states with legal marijuana see a significant economic boost, but also experience an increase in social costs. The report found that states that legalized marijuana for adults saw moderate economic gains after the policy change was implemented, with the number of jobs directly in the marijuana industry growing from less than 125,000 to more than 425,000 between 2017 and 2022. However, the report also found that states with legal marijuana saw an increase in social costs, including substance use disorders, chronic homelessness, and arrests.
Cannabis News for October 15 2023 | Tom & Miggy on the Road This week Tom & Miggy are on the road and cover new federal workplace guidelines for THC testing do not create any new laws. Rather, they clarify that medical marijuana use is not a protected activity under federal law, and that employers are still able to fire employees for testing positive for THC, even if they have a medical marijuana card.
Cannabis Legalization News for October 2023 The House of Representative had quite the shake-up this week leaving many to wonder how that will impact cannabis policy with the recent proposal by the HHS to reschedule cannabis and efforts to pass the SAFER Banking Act. Currently, marijuana is federally illegal, but legal in some states for medical and/or recreational use. This creates a problem for marijuana businesses, which have difficulty accessing banking services. Federal law prohibits banks from doing business with businesses that are involved in illegal activities. There is bipartisan support for legislation that would allow marijuana businesses to access banking services, but it has not yet been passed. Some Republicans have expressed opposition to the legislation, arguing that it would give legitimacy to an illegal industry. If a new House Speaker is elected who is more supportive of marijuana reform, it could increase the chances of legislation passing that would allow marijuana businesses to access banking services. This would be a major win for the marijuana industry and would make it easier for businesses to operate and grow. a lawsuit that has been filed against the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to compel the release of a letter that the Biden administration sent to the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) recommending that marijuana be rescheduled. The letter has not been released publicly, but it is believed to contain the Biden administration's reasoning for why marijuana should be rescheduled and what the DEA should do next. The lawsuit was filed by attorney Matthew Zorn, who argues that the letter is a public record and that HHS is required to release it. The lawsuit also claims that HHS is withholding the letter in order to delay or prevent the DEA from rescheduling marijuana. The DEA currently classifies marijuana as a Schedule I drug, which means that it has a high potential for abuse and no currently accepted medical use. Rescheduling marijuana would make it easier for researchers to study the plant and for patients to access it for medical purposes. The outcome of the lawsuit is uncertain, but it could have a significant impact on the future of marijuana reform in the United States. If the court orders HHS to release the letter, it could put pressure on the DEA to reschedule marijuana. This week we also have news out of Arizona, Illinois, Ohio, New York, and Michigan.

The SAFER Act in the Senate | Easy DOT Physicals Dr.Nuesse The Senate Banking Committee voted 14-9 on Wednesday to advance the Secure and Fair Enforcement Regulation (SAFER) Banking Act. This is the first time that a Senate committee has approved a marijuana banking bill, and it is a significant step forward for the cannabis industry. The SAFER Banking Act would allow banks to work with state-legal cannabis businesses without fear of federal penalties. This would provide a number of benefits to the cannabis industry, including: Reduced risk of crime and violence: Cannabis businesses would be able to use banks to deposit and withdraw money, which would reduce the need to keep large amounts of cash on hand. This would make them less of a target for criminals. Increased access to capital: Cannabis businesses would be able to apply for loans and lines of credit from banks, which would help them to grow and expand their operations. Reduced costs: Cannabis businesses would no longer have to pay high fees to use money services businesses (MSBs) to process their financial transactions. The passage of the SAFER Banking Act by the Senate Banking Committee is a positive sign for the cannabis industry. However, it is important to note that the bill still needs to be passed by the full Senate and House of Representatives before it can become law. It is also unclear when the bill will be considered by the full Senate. In the meantime, cannabis businesses will continue to face challenges in accessing banking services. However, the passage of the SAFER Banking Act by the Senate Banking Committee is a sign that progress is being made towards addressing this issue. This week we have guest speaker Dr. Matthew Nuesse joining us. Dr. Nuesse is a Certified Medical Examiner with nearly a decade of experience in drug testing and pre-employment medical examinations.

Federal Cannabis Legalization News | Safter Banking Act Update This week we saw a major push by Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer to legalize cannabis at the federal level when he circulated a petition, asking for signatures from supporters. These types of email campaigns are often used to build up their own email lists for political fundraising; however, Schumer has been an outspoken proponent of allowing banks to do business in the cannabis industry. On Wednesday, Schumer and a bipartisan group of cannabis supporters introduced a revised version of the SAFE Banking Act called the SAFER Banking Act. This updated version has some new provisions and is set for mark-up in the Senate next week. Meanwhile, two republican supporters of the SAFER Banking Act introduced their own bill to impede the proposition of rescheduling cannabis to a less regulated class. The DEA Act, as it’s known, would require congressional approval to propose a change to any federal drug law, adding another hurdle to the prospect of cannabis legalization if it were to pass both chambers of Congress. The MORE Act was also refiled again this week, making its way to the House for a third time. The bill is solely sponsored by Democrats and faces an uphill battle to make it through while the House is under GOP majority. New York continues to make headlines for their calamitous roll out of the adult-use industry in the state. Leafly, Ron DeSantis, and the NCAA also get some of the spotlight this week.
