The Rescheduling of Cannabis May be Imminent as Assistant U.S. Attorney Gives Evidence on its Medical Benefits in Landmark Trial

The Rescheduling of Cannabis May be Imminent as Assistant U.S. Attorney Gives Evidence on its Medical Benefits in Landmark Trial

DR. KELLY NEFF on 30 October, 2014 at 04:59

The debate over the health benefits of cannabis has been raging for years, with medical cannabis being legal in 26 states while the Federal Government continues to keep it classified as a Schedule 1 Controlled Substance, deemed to have no approved medicinal value (just for reference, cocaine and crystal meth are Schedule II, deemed to have some medicinal use).

Thousands and thousands of lives has been destroyed as people have been imprisoned and ruthlessly prosecuted for growing this plant that provides them with healing medicine for a wide variety of conditions. This may all be about to change after the first four days of hearings on the constitutionality of cannabis being classified Schedule 1.

Testimony regarding the federal statute designating cannabis as a Schedule I Controlled Substance began on Monday, October 27 in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of California in the case of United States v. Pickard, et. al., No.2:11-CR-0449-KJM.
