What is the Schedule Does Cannabis Belong

The DEA Schedule was created by The Controlled Substances Act.

All federally regulated substances are placed in Schedules 1-5, based on the substance’s potential for abuse and recognized medical use.1

Cannabis is in the category reserved for the most dangerous drugs which have a ”high abuse potential with no accepted medical use; medications within this schedule may not be prescribed, dispensed, or administered"

As a comparison, drugs on Schedule 2, considered less dangerous than cannabis, include cocaine, methamphetamine, and oxycodone.

With over 6 million registered medical cannabis patients in the United States, how can we keep pretending that there is “no accepted medical use,” when patients’ lives are at stake?!
