The Drug Enforcement Administration declared Thursday that weed will stay delegated a Schedule I controlled substance – an assignment held for exceptionally addictive medications with no demonstrated therapeutic use.
Is that not the most INSANE thing you’ve read all day?
A great many distributed studies and broad recounted proof have demonstrated maryjane can help with conditions, for example, nausea, menstrual cramps, anxiety, epilepsy and perpetual torment. Be that as it may, DEA acting Administrator Chuck Rosenberg stated,

Cannabis advocates said they don’t worry that the DEA’s decision will strongly influence different pot sanctioning votes on the poll in California and seven different states this November.
Dr. Igor Grant, a psychiatrist who oversees the Center for Medical Cannabis Research at UC San Diego goes on to say,
“There is significant evidence that cannabis possesses therapeutic value, and it is worthy of continued, even accelerated, investigation and development.”
Around 80 percent of Americans are open to the idea of medical marijuana being legal, according to recent polls.
As of now recreational use is allowed in four states plus Washington, D.C. If California passes Proposition 64 this November, 1 in 6 Americans would live in a state where adults would be allowed to freely use cannabis.
Unfortunately, marijuana opponents predict the DEA’s latest decision will slow that momentum.

Many people are easily blown away once they take the time to really think it through and once the plants amazing factors are explained.
