Colorado requests marijuana reclassification

Posted By on Fri, Dec 30, 2011 at 11:54 AM

On Dec. 22, reports the Denver Post, Department of Revenue executive director Barbara Brohl sent a letter requesting the federal government reclassify marijuana from a Schedule I substance — one with "no currently accepted medical use" — to a Schedule II, with "accepted medical use in treatment." This makes Colorado the third state to make that request, after Washington and New Jersey.

The move was mandated by the state's initial attempt at regulating its medical marijuana industry, House Bill 1284.

(g) IN RECOGNITION OF THE POTENTIAL MEDICINAL VALUE OF MEDICAL MARIJUANA, MAKE A REQUEST BY JANUARY 1, 2012, TO THE FEDERAL DRUG ENFORCEMENT ADMINISTRATION TO CONSIDER RESCHEDULING, FOR PHARMACEUTICAL PURPOSES, MEDICAL MARIJUANA FROM A SCHEDULE I CONTROLLED SUBSTANCE TO SCHEDULE II CONTROLLED SUBSTANCE.
