Is marijuana a legal drug under FDA grandfather provisions?
UNITED STATES COURT OF APPEALS
James R. Browning U.S. Courthouse, San Francisco
Hemp Industries Association et al,
Drug Enforcement Administration,
Legal challenge filed against DEA’s new marijuana extract rule
DEA Acting Administrator Chuck Rosenberg says:
Schedule I includes some substances that are exceptionally dangerous and some that are less dangerous (including marijuana, which is less dangerous than some substances in other schedules). That strikes some people as odd, but the criteria for inclusion in Schedule I is not relative danger.
