Feds say Marijuana Has NO Medical Purpose



On Friday, the federal government ruled that marijuana has no accepted medical use and should remain in the same class of drugs as heroin. Was this a good decision?

“The decision comes nearly nine years after marijuana supporters asked the government to reclassify the drug to take into account the growing body of research conducted across the globe that proves it’s effective in treating certain diseases, reports The Los Angeles Times.

The Times also noted, this is the third time that petitions to reclassify marijuana have been denied.

The first was filed in 1972 and denied 17 years later. The second was filed in 1995 and denied in 2001. Both decisions were appealed, but the courts sided with the federal government.”

Nevertheless, advocates of medicinal marijuana plan to appeal this decision in the courts as well.

What about you? Do you agree that marijuana has no accepted medical purpose?
