Marijuana would be removed from drug schedule under new bill


Recommended Posts

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.”
