The Devil At the Door is... Heroin. Heroin doesn't discriminate. It destroys lives and families and is robbing our community. These pages are the personal Chronicles of loving a child who uses and abuses heroin and opiates. You can also find what I hope to be helpful links, info and resources as well as sometimes whatever is on my mind at the moment... even an occasional venting!
"The amendment called for re-classifying marijuana in state guidelines as a Schedule IV drug: a non-narcotic drug with low potential for abuse. “It allows for the prescription of medical cannabis,” he said.
Currently, both state and federal law classify marijuana Schedule I drug, a category that also includes drugs such as heroin."
You may remember from my post the other day called, Marijuana X: It's not your old school pot that I mentioned that the US Gov holds the patent on Marijuana and that the DEA still has it classified as a Schedule One drug.
Now, this statement made by Delegate Shawn Fluharty D-Ohio has me really scratching my head.
“It’s a shame that legislators are putting politics above the health of our residents,” Fluharty said after voting against the amendment, co-sponsored by Delegate Isaac Sponaugle, D-Pendleton.
“This amendment would have allowed doctors to be doctors, and prescribe medicinal cannabis if they thought it was proper for their patients,” Fluharty said.
All they are asking is that the DEA change the scheduling of cannabis. This statement is the kind that has some of us wondering what this is really about. Wasn't it the huge pharma, politicians, and doctors made the most money off of the opioid crisis in this country for many years?
Would the change of the scheduling of cannabis mean that the DEA cannot make huge profits off of marijuana seizures in this country in the states who have not legalized?
