Should Marijuana be Rescheduled to Allow for Medical Research & Use?

Argument in favor

Rescheduling marijuana as a schedule III drug would lower barriers to research into its potential benefits and medical uses by allowing federal funding for those efforts. It would also benefit legal marijuana businesses, which face a number of legal and regulatory issues related to marijuana’s schedule I status.

YES! Fucking DUH! AND I AM A PRIME EXAMPLE OF WHY! First off. I just turned 40. So know that. I’m a disabled vet, I live in constant pain from back injuries, have PTSD, severe depression disorder, past addiction issues, social anxiety disorder, insomnia, and a few more. I’ve been dealing with most of this since I got out of the military in 2010. I’ve had 2 back surgeries fusing 3 discs total. I’ve undergone RTMS (transcranial magnetic stimulation) treatment for my depression, along with therapy, groups, ptsd classes, and NUMEROUS medications. I honestly couldn’t list them all without looking it up. THEN. A couple of months ago I decided to get my medical marijuana card. (State) I never was into weed as a kid. Always made me feel like I was having a panic attack, but I thought what the hell. It couldn’t really cause harm, so I tried it. Now, I don’t notice my pain half as much. It’s given me my sense of humor back, which is doing wonders for my depression, and my Marriage. Another big problem I have is lethargy. I never have any energy. ( on b12, bupropion, and testosterone to help with that and still have no energy) well, the sativa strains of marijuana fix that right up. I feel like I need to get up and do something. It’s really uplifting. It’s been amazing. I hate smoking it, (smell, taste, cough) but vaping it is much better. (Still be careful of the coughing) it’s been great for me. Plus there’s edibles, tinctures, waxes, etc.. they even have topical sprays. Needless to say, I still have a ways to go. But marijuana is in the process of changing my life in multiple ways, and all for the better.

Just federally legalize it already. It has so many medical benefits. How many times are we going to ask this. Just make it legal.

What is there to lose? CBD is clearly a good solution for many chronic pain sufferers from athletes to geriatric. Anything to fill the gap as we fight the opioid crisis

Argument opposed

Marijuana’s current schedule I status doesn’t prevent research on its potential benefits and medical uses. Rescheduling would be largely symbolic from a research perspective, as it doesn’t affect legality — for example, cocaine is schedule II and illegal — so there’s no reason to reschedule marijuana as long as research can move ahead.

Cannabis should be removed from the CSA entirely. Say it with us: "It is a plant that grows wild here." Ditch Mitch 2020

Considering it's current status all that is required is to LEGALIZE IT 100%, ANYTHING ELSE IS BULL CRAP. THERE IS NO UNDERSTANDING WHY IT ISN'T THAT WAY ALREADY EXCEPT SOMEONE OR CORPORATIONS ARE TRYING TO FIGURE A WAY TO MAKE ALL THE MONEY

    It really should just be decriminalized, but this is a start. This alsoneeds to include retroactive reduction of setences relating to weed.
