If We Want More Marijuana Research, The Government Needs To Mellow Out
The Drug Enforcement Administration is considering changing how marijuana is classified, which could make it easier to research.By Ben Lawson | April 7, 2016
The Drug Enforcement Administration is considering easing its stance on marijuana.
In a memo obtained by The Washington Post, the DEA said it will decide in the next few months if it wants to change marijuana's status as a Schedule 1 drug.
It's not like marijuana will be any less illegal if it does get a scheduling change, but it could greatly expand opportunities for research.
