This Republican Is Demanding For CBD To Be Rescheduled
A Republican member of the House of Representatives, Rep. Morgan, has submitted two pieces of legislation that would fundamentally alter the ways in which cannabis is approached by the federal government.
Rep. Morgan (R-Va.) submitted two bills – respectively titled H.R. 714, the “Legitimate Use of Medicinal Marijuana Act” (LUMMA); and H.R. 715, the “Compassionate Access Act” – for a passage that would both deal in the rescheduling of cannabis. LUMMA takes the greater step of rescheduling cannabis from a Schedule I substance to a Schedule II. The substance is currently classified by the federal government as having “no accepted medical use;” the bill would change that classification and pave the way for a way for greater research into cannabis’s medical efficacy.
The bill would also call upon several government agencies to recommend the scheduling downgrade to the DEA.
