Title 21 : Congress must amend

Last edited Fri May 30, 2014, 12:02 PM - Edit history (1)

Title 21 of the United States Code (USC), Subdivision I, Part A, Section 801 of the Controlled Substances Act (CSA) has a paragraph entitled Severability. In this paragraph it states that if any provision of Title 21 of the USC is "...invalid or unenforceable...[it may be] severed from this title..."

The Controlled Substances Act places marijuana as a schedule I substance. However, numerous doctors and research scientists have agreed that marijuana has legitimate medical use.

Therefore, Congress needs to amend Title 21 to remove cannabis from this section of the CSA, and move cannabis to another schedule, or better, remove it completely from the CSA and allow oversight from the ATF.

This would stop all the wasteful spending on a war on cannabis that no one other than those who profit from producing criminals want to remain as law.

It's time, Congress.
