FDA seeks public comments on reclassification of marijuana
Please be advised that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is seeking public comments concerning abuse potential, actual abuse, medical usefulness, trafficking and the impact of reclassifying marijuana from its current schedule I category under current U.S. Federal Law. The Federal Government is seeking input regarding marijuana’s current classification and legal status in conjunction to the World Health Organization (WHO) considering its reclassification of marijuana and other substances and any medical benefits which may exist. Any comments received, will be considered by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services when it prepares a scientific and medical evaluation response to the World Health Organization. As expected, marijuana legalization advocates are supporting any efforts which would result in the Federal Government reclassifying marijuana and removing it from the Schedule I category.
