The DEA will soon decide whether it will reclassify marijuana
The Drug Enforcement Administration says it will make a decision in the coming months that could prove to be a watershed moment for the burgeoning legal marijuana industry. In a recent memo to lawmakers, the DEA announced plans to decide "in the first half of 2016" whether or not it will reschedule marijuana, according to The Washington Post. Cannabis is now listed under the Controlled Substances Act as a Schedule 1 drug, a categorization it shares with other drugs, such as heroin and LSD, which the U.S. government defines as "the most dangerous drugs" that have "no currently accepted medical use and a high potential for abuse."
