Been there, done that. It’s been tried and denied. There’s a reason why they are holding back. Ever wonder why? Can you guess? It may have something to do with punishment, forfeiture, taking your money and controlling your future. Isn’t that what it’s always about up there in the hills?

Let’s see if something gets done this time – And what about protecting the caregiver system?

Marijuana, although being legal recreationally in Michigan, remains categorized a schedule 1 drug with some opiates, ecstasy LSD and heroin. Marijuana still remains federally illegal and on the DEA controlled substance list through the controlled substance act.

New proposed legislation, House Bill 5877, named after longtime Ann Arbor marijuana legalization activist and poet John Sinclair, aims to change that.

“Cannabis is still a schedule 1 substance. Schedule 1 is the highest, most criminalized on the list of drugs,” said state Rep. Yousef Rabhi, D-Ann Arbor, who sponsored the legislation. “Why? It’s legal, we’re using it medically, there’s adult use in the state that’s been approved by voters and yet we’re still listing it as a schedule 1 substance.”

Michigan law defines a schedule 1 drug as a substance that “has high potential for abuse and has no accepted medical use in treatment in the United States or lacks accepted safety for use in treatment under medical supervision.”
