Notice of proposed rulemaking:
rescheduling of marijuana






The Department of Justice (“DOJ”) proposes to transfer marijuana from schedule I of the Controlled Substances Act (“CSA”) to schedule III of the CSA, consistent with the view of the Department of Health and Human Services (“HHS”) that marijuana has a currently accepted medical use as well as HHS’s views about marijuana’s abuse potential and level of physical or psychological dependence. The CSA requires that such actions be made through formal rulemaking on the record after opportunity for a hearing.

COMMENT ON THE PROPOSED RULE BY THE DRUG ENFORCEMENT ADMINISTRATION





Comments must be submitted electronically or postmarked on or before July 22, 2024. Interested persons may file a request for a hearing or waiver of an opportunity for a hearing or to participate in a hearing pursuant to 21 CFR 1308.44 and in accordance with 21 CFR 1316.47 or 1316.49, as applicable, which must be received or postmarked on or before June 20, 2024.

URGENT: Hemp-Killing Amendment Filed on Farm Bill and Appropriations Bill – Contact Your Member of Congress TODAY

The infamous Mary Miller Amendment (discussed in detail here) has now been attached to two separate pieces of legislation: The House Farm Bill and the FY 25 Agriculture/FDA Appropriations bill – the bill that funds all agriculture programs. There is a long way before either bill could become law, and we will have plenty of time to educate policymakers.
