    Bingo they are basically saying it has medical value yet it’s illegal federally also saying it has no medical value while they hold the patent on cannabis to be used for medical reasons. And let’s not forget there was never a constitutional amendment to make cannabis illegal like there was for alcohol that actually means that the laws for cannabis are null and void constitutionally. But when’s the last time they followed the constitution for the little people.

    Honestly they need never ending lawsuits to be filed from companies and people in all states hell and the states that legalized should also file lawsuits. It’s about time for lawsuits to be filed daily. And if there was a way to file lawsuits against the FDA and lawsuits against those in congress for breaking the constitutional law put in place to limit them not limit us.

    Another reason schedule one status hurts Americans is the fact that it prevents good hard-working Americans from getting jobs due to unconstitutional drug testing I’d argue it makes sense not to have people working drunk or high but on ur own time is another thing. A person shouldn’t be fired over what they did over the weekend. Yet most jobs will say its federally illegal even tho the CSA is unconstitutional and not even legal by removing it from this would help people in legal states because employers wouldn’t be able to fire someone over their weekend use. If Trump really wanted to be a jobs president that would really give a boost the economy. And I am politically neutral and don’t care for either party.

    > "The federal government can't investigate everything and shouldn't, and I don't want them pursuing medical marijuana patients who are following state law," Sen. Patrick Leahy, who offered the amendment, told The Hill.

    > "We have more important things for the Department of Justice to do than tracking down doctors or epileptics using medical marijuana legally in their state.”

    > "If Congress wants to tell the Department of Justice to stop enforcing the medical marijuana laws, then it should change the authorization within the Judiciary Committee, not through an appropriations provision," he said.
