  4. News 1.3k 0 0 December 15, 2016 DEA: CBD Oil Declared Schedule 1, Claims Cannabis Product Has No Medical Benefits [updated] Eric Scott Pickard According to the DEA, CBD oil is now to be considered a Schedule 1 substance. The Drug Enforcement Administration, the United States federal agency tasked with regulating and policing controlled substances, issued the new ruling Wednesday, and it goes into effect Thursday. (See below for updated legal information and a link to the text of the DEA memo) What Is CBD Oil?CBD Oil Displayed At A Medical Marijuana Dispensary. [image by Carla K. Johnson/AP Images]CBD oil, short for cannabidiol oil, is derived from the cannabis or marijuana plant. The difference in CBD oil, however, is that it is processed from hemp plants that do no contain a large amount of tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC. This means that CBD oil does not have the psychoactive component that is present in other medical marijuana products, and it doesn’t get you high. CBD oil benefits patients in a variety of ways despite it’s connection to the illegal cannabis plant, according to the pro-medical marijuana organization California NORML. “CBD has nonetheless long been known to have useful anti-spasmodic, anti-epileptic, anti-anxiety, and anti-psychotic properties.” CBD oil has been used in the treatment of such conditions as multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, anxiety disorders, and for pain management in cancer patients. The fact that it does not produce a “high” in patients has made it attractive for many, and particularly in the treatment of children with chronic disorders. CBD oil is sold and marketed in many forms, including as a liquid, in pills, and as capsules. The DEA CBD Oil RulingThe final documents on the new DEA CBD oil ruling make cannabis oil a Schedule 1 substance, according to KRCR TV. Schedule 1 status is defined by the Drug Enforcement Administration. “Schedule I drugs, substances, or chemicals are defined as drugs with no currently accepted medical use and a high potential for abuse. Some examples of Schedule I drugs are: heroin, lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD), marijuana (cannabis), 3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine (ecstasy), methaqualone, and peyote.” The Schedule 1 status of cannabis and marijuana has long been a point of contention between much of the public and the DEA, particularly when used for medicinal purposes. Twenty-eight states in the US, as well as the District of Columbia, have made medical marijuana legal to some degree in defiance of federal law. A number of states have also made the recreational use of cannabis legal, as in the case of Colorado, where both medical and recreational marijuana are legal, regulated, and taxed under state law. The new DEA CBD oil ruling is an especially poignant one, in that CBD oil is specifically designed to be a medicinal product and a dietary supplement. As the substance does not produce a mind-altering state, it would not seem to have a “high potential for abuse,” and case studies suggest that CBD oil does indeed have an “accepted medical use.” A Medical Marijuana Harvest. [image by Seth Perlman/AP Images]The Wednesday decision states that according to the DEA, CBD oil, and any cannabis extract falls under code 7350, a new federal code, and thus carries Schedule 1 status. The ruling is not a change in federal law, but rather a clarification of existing statutes. CBD oil manufacturers have long operated under the theory that since their product was produced from hemp, which contains a lower amount of THC than is illegal under federal guidelines, they were in legal territory at the federal level. The DEA CBD oil decision removes the ambiguity and places CBD firmly under Schedule 1. The announcement means that CBD oil manufacturers and distributes will have to update their registrations to the new code 7350 by January 13 in the states in which it is legal to produce. It will be illegal to transport the substance over state lines, and the long-term consequences for the CBD oil industry, as well as patients who use it, is unclear. [update On DEA CBD Oil News]This story can be clarified by a memo from Folium Legal Counsel. Folium issued a statement offering legal analysis of the DEA news. This new rule does not create any new substantive regulation or law regarding the legal status of marijuana or marijuana extract. Instead, it creates a new tracking code number for “Marihuana Extracts” (which include cannabinoids). Previously, Marijuana Extracts were classified under the code number for “Marihuana. Under the new rule, extracts are now classified separately,” the statement reads. “This new rule affects only DEA-registered entities who previously were required to track such materials. As the document states, “[t]he only direct effect to registrants who handle marihuana extracts will be the requirement to add the new drug code to their registrations.'” The legal analysis goes on to explain that the DEA is not permitted to interfere with “legal state licensed cannabis business” and that the DEA has been de-funded from “pursuing any enforcement of their archaic interpretation of the Controlled Substances Act (CSA) in legal states.” The full text of the DEA CBD oil memo is available here.
  5. I didn't post the article for you but aren't you posting about a hypothetical reality when you mention what Sessions will do.
  6. Well its still schedule 1 and illegal on a federal level after 8 years under the current administration so what makes you think it would be better under HRC.
  7. ROGER STONE: DONALD TRUMP AND THE POLITICS OF MARIJUANA December 3, 2016Editor 3288 Views 30 Comments By Roger Stone One of the most controversial decisions a President Trump will have to make is whether to continue the federal stand-down by the us Justice department in which DOJ does not enforce federal marijuana laws where they contradict state laws legalizing the legal use and sale of marijuana in the 37 states where it is currently legal in some form. Although he has a long standing personal opposition to drug use Trump has also expressed support for the medicinal use of marijuana in the states where it is legal. Canceling the order by Obama attorney general Eric Holder to stand down on Marijuana would cause a major dislocation in multiple states that are currently budgeting millions in state revenue from the taxation of marijuana and un-employing hundreds of thousands of people currently working in an industry legalized by the states. I would urge President-Elect Trump to view this as a business man; U.S. government cannot turn back the clock on federal marijuana law enforcement. Just over one year ago, on November 23, 2016, GQ Magazine published a video interview of Donald J. Trump while he was campaigning for POTUS. In this interview, he was asked his opinion about legalized marijuana, to which he answered “Legalized marijuana is always a difficult question . . . for medicinal purposes, for medical purposes, absolutely, it’s fine.” A month before, on October 29, 2015, then Candidate Trump told the Washington Post: “In terms of marijuana and legalization, I think that should be a state issue, state-by-state. Marijuana is such a big thing. I think medical should. And then I really believe we should leave it up to the states. And of course, you have Colorado. There’s a question as to how it’s all working out there, you know? That’s not going exactly trouble-free.” While many Internet sources say that sometime in 1990, the Sarasota Herald Tribune published an article that Donald J. Trump said the War on Drugs was a joke, this researcher has found that what actually occurred was on April 14, 1990, at a Company of the Year Award luncheon, sponsored by the Sarasota Herald Tribune for their annual prize announcement, Donald J. Trump was invited to speak. Trump said he thought the Drug Enforcement Agency efficacy was a joke, and that “we’re losing badly in the war on drugs … you have to take the profit away from these drug czars … tax revenues from a legalized drug trade could be spent to educate the public on the dangers of drugs.” Portugal tried this model in 2001, and it is considered a great success by the Portuguese more than fifteen years later. While Donald Trump is on record at the 2015 CPAC making a statement about recreational marijuana, “I say it’s bad. Medical marijuana is another thing, but I think it’s bad, and I feel strongly about it.” Donald was speaking to Conservatives, and while that might have been the reasoning behind making such a marked change of direction from his position in the 1990’s, his position on Medical Marijuana, even in the face of these same Conservatives, remains unchanged. During the same election that won Trump the Presidency, there was another vote on the Florida ballot. Amendment 2 passed with an overwhelming majority, with more than 71% of the States votes, on the Left and the Right, approving of Medical Marijuana. This is a far higher percentage of the population than voted for Donald Trump, which reported by the State of Florida, stands at just over 49%. Florida was not alone, as California, Nevada, and Massachusetts approved of recreational marijuana, and North Dakota and Arkansas passing their own Medical Marijuana provisions. All told, twenty-eight States and Washington D.C. now have legalized Medical Marijuana. A clear majority of States and population are for it, nationwide. A great many pro-marijuana organizations, publications, and Internet outlets put their support behind Donald Trump based on his positive statements about Medical Marijuana. People who have marijuana rights as their primary political issue turned to Trump, many against long time party affiliation, in hopes of greater freedom and less abuse at the hands of Federal Agencies. If, after winning the election, Donald Trump listens to the likes of Chris Christie and Jeff Sessions he risks alienating his base and his newly won supporters in a very tangible way. Both Sessions and Christie come from ‘Old World’ War on Drugs thinking. Criminalized Marijuana has directly lead to the persecution of countless individuals, the vast majority of whom are poor and minorities. That this was the desired result of the designers of the system of criminalization cannot be reasonable doubted. “Laws to suppress tend to strengthen what they would prohibit. This is the fine point on which all legal professions throughout history have based their jobs security.” – Frank Herbert We cannot leave it to ‘Law Enforcement’ types to decide what is to be allowed and what is to be prohibited. The People must decide for themselves, and they have decided. Overwhelmingly so. They have decided they want legalized marijuana. “If the people let government decide what foods they eat and what medicines they take, their bodies will soon be in as sorry a state as are the souls of those who live under tyranny.” – Thomas Jefferson Drain the Swamp. Limit Federal Power. Reel-in out-of-control Alphabet Soup agencies. Return respect for law. These are all things Donald Trump made as major issues for his campaign platform. “The prestige of government has undoubtedly been lowered considerably by the prohibition law. For nothing is more destructive of respect for the government and the law of the land than passing laws which cannot be enforced.” – Albert Einstein A precipitous move by the Trump administration to change the equation on legal marijuana in the states could in fact bring action by congress where a coalition of liberal Democrats and libertarian republicans are moving towards legislation to legalize the plant.
  8. You want to sue a doctor for not prescribing pain meds? Good luck with that one. A doctor can refuse to treat you for any reason.
  9. They were running for electoral votes not popular vote,there is a difference. If trump wanted popular vote he would have campaigned only in more populated states instead of states like Wyoming with many less voters.
  10. Just so you Hillary nuts remember,you are the LOSERS! Maybe you can run Donna Brazile or Bernie Sanders in 8 years haha. Do you even have a party left? You lost everything,even the down ballots!
