SCHEDULE I DRUGS vs. CANNABIS
Love it or hate it, use it or fear it, however you slice it, Cannabis does not measure up to a schedule “I” drug.
JUST SO YOU KNOW THE DIFFERENCE
Schedule I drugs, substances, or chemicals are defined as drugs with no currently accepted medical use and a high potential for abuse. Some examples of Schedule I drugs are:
Heroin, lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD), marijuana (cannabis), 3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine (ecstasy), methaqualone, and peyote
Schedule II drugs, substances, or chemicals are defined as drugs with a high potential for abuse, with use potentially leading to severe psychological or physical dependence. These drugs are also considered dangerous. Some examples of Schedule II drugs are:
Combination products with less than 15 milligrams of hydrocodone per dosage unit (Vicodin), cocaine, methamphetamine, methadone, hydromorphone (Dilaudid), meperidine (Demerol), oxycodone (OxyContin), fentanyl, Dexedrine, Adderall, and Ritalin
Schedule III drugs, substances, or chemicals are defined as drugs with a moderate to low potential for physical and psychological dependence. Schedule III drugs abuse potential is less than Schedule I and Schedule II drugs but more than Schedule IV. Some examples of Schedule III drugs are:
Products containing less than 90 milligrams of codeine per dosage unit (Tylenol with codeine), ketamine, anabolic steroids, testosterone
Schedule IV drugs, substances, or chemicals are defined as drugs with a low potential for abuse and low risk of dependence. Some examples of Schedule IV drugs are:
Xanax, Soma, Darvon, Darvocet, Valium, Ativan, Talwin, Ambien, Tramadol
Schedule V drugs, substances, or chemicals are defined as drugs with lower potential for abuse than Schedule IV and consist of preparations containing limited quantities of certain narcotics. Schedule V drugs are generally used for antidiarrheal, antitussive, and analgesic purposes. Some examples of Schedule V drugs are:
Cough preparations with less than 200 milligrams of codeine or per 100 milliliters (Robitussin AC), Lomotil, Motofen, Lyrica, Parepectolin

CANNABIS AND HEMP – EDUCATE YOURSELF
On this page see the article on “William Randolph Hearst (1863-1951), newspaper tycoon and owner of substantial part of timber industry, launched a propaganda campaign against cannabis”
Why would that be important to Hearst? Paper. Make the connection. It is far more economical and environmentally safe to use Hemp to make paper than it to use trees. But that would have put Hearst out of business.
See excerpts of this conspiracy here:
The Truth About Marijuana
Nov 27, 1995
…the acts bringing about the demise of hemp were part of a large conspiracy involving DuPont, Harry J. Anslinger, commissioner of the Federal Bureau of Narcotics, and many other influential industrial leaders such as William Randolph Hearst and Andrew Mellon. …the Marijuana Tax Act, which passed in 1937, occurred just as the decorticator machine was invented. …”10,000 acres devoted to hemp will produce as much paper as 40,000 acres of average [forest] pulp land.” Competition from hemp would have easily driven the Hearst paper-manufacturing company out of business and significantly lowered the value of his land. The first step in creating hysteria was to introduce the element of fear of the unknown by using a word that no one had ever heard of before… ‘marijuana’. See the Etymology of the word Marijuana.
At this time, DuPont was patenting a new sulfuric acid process for producing wood-pulp paper [which] accounted for more than 80% of all DuPont’s railroad car loadings for the next 50 years. …two years before the prohibitive hemp tax in 1937, DuPont developed a new synthetic fiber, nylon, which was an ideal substitute for hemp rope.
The reasoning behind DuPont, Anslinger, and Hearst was not for any moral or health related issues. They fought to prevent the growth of this new industry so they wouldn’t go bankrupt.
In fact, the American Medical Association tried to argue for the medical benefits of hemp. Marijuana is actually less dangerous than alcohol, cigarettes, and even most over-the-counter medicines or prescriptions.

Trump should have accepted Jeff Sessions resignation when he had it in hand but his top advisors were against that.
In American political discourse, states’ rights are political powers reserved for the state governments rather than the federal government according to the United States Constitution, reflecting especially the enumerated powers of Congress and the Tenth Amendment.
HAS JEFF SESSIONS LOST HIS MIND?
HEADLINE NEWS – WEED WAR: SESSIONS ANNOUNCES MARIJUANA CRACKDOWN
Published time: 4 Jan, 2018 18:23Edited time: 5 Jan, 2018 18:13
The Justice Department is revoking an Obama-era policy that discouraged US attorneys in states where marijuana had been legalized from bringing charges in marijuana-related crimes.
“It is the mission of the Department of Justice to enforce the laws of the United States,” Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in the announcement Thursday. “Therefore, today’s memo on federal marijuana enforcement simply directs all US Attorneys to use previously established prosecutorial principles that provide them all the necessary tools to disrupt criminal organizations, tackle the growing drug crisis, and thwart violent crime across our country.”
REPRESENTATIVE KEITH ELLISON SAYS:
The war on drugs didn’t stop drug usage; it just ruined a lot of lives. Jeff Sessions is reviving it because he believes in using the criminal justice system as an instrument of racial and economic control of poor people and brown people.
JEFF SESSIONS SAYS:
Jeff Sessions Plans to Declare War on Legal Weed
The AP reported on Thursday that Attorney General Jeff Sessions, America’s biggest narc, will rescind Obama-era directives that instituted policies favorable to states that have legalized marijuana.
The move is likely to lead to confusion about whether it is legal to grow, buy or use marijuana in states where it has been decriminalized. Long-standing federal laws prohibit the practice, and still classify marijuana it as a Schedule I drug under the Controlled Substances Act, akin to heroin and cocaine. It is considered to have no medical use.
Sessions has been a vocal critic of marijuana legislation, comparing the drug to heroin and blaming it for spikes in violence. He has hinted that he would crack down on the growing cannabis market.
In May, the attorney general sent a letter to congressional leaders requesting they ditch an amendment in the department’s budget that blocks DOJ from using federal money to prevent states “from the implementing their own State laws that authorize the use, distribution, possession or cultivation of medical marijuana.”
Opponents and supporters of legal marijuana Thursday weighed in on news of the action.
“Jeff Sessions’ obsession with marijuana prohibition defies logic, threatens successful state level reforms, and flies in the face of widespread public support for legalization,” Maria McFarland Sanchez-Moreno, executive director of the Drug Policy Alliance, said in a statement. “It’s now time for Congress to put the brakes on Sessions’ destructive agenda by limiting the Justice Department’s ability to undermine states’ decision making.”
Most arrests in the US are for drug possession, and marijuana represents by far the largest share of those arrests, according to the Alliance. The group advocates for policies and attitudes that reduce the harms of both drug use and drug prohibition.
Political satirist, radio host and civil rights activists, Randy Credico told RT criminalizing marijuana is an old tactic used to target the poor and people of color.
“When [president] Nixon kicked it off, [with] the drug war, and then [Governor] Rockefeller kicked it off statewide, 93% of the people who were going to jail on drug charges, either pot or cocaine, were people of color in the state of New York,” Credico told RT. “That was pretty much the same on the federal level. So these laws are used in the enforcement side of it against poor people and people of color.”
Credico was instrumental in helping to repeal the state’s Rockefeller Drug laws, under which someone caught possessing an ounce of marijuana faced a minimum sentence of 15 years if convicted.
Sessions is closely aligned with the private prison industry, Credico pointed out. The private prison stock price was going down towards the end of the Obama administration’s term, but have since skyrocketed under Trump. Ironically, Credico said, Sessions is also a big states’ rights supporter.
More than 60 percent of Americans support making marijuana use legal, according to a Gallup poll. Twenty-nine states have legalized marijuana for medical use, while eight have legalized the drug outright.
California began allowing the sale of recreational marijuana Monday, joining Colorado, Washington, Oregon, Alaska and Nevada. Massachusetts and possibly Maine are expected to begin sales this year.
“I don’t know what is going to happen to the dispensaries that have opened up in California,” Credico said. “These eight states can certainly try to block his enforcement in federal court until they get something from the [US] Supreme Court or appellate federal court, which I think they will all do.”
“There is going to be a massive crackdown and a massive backlash in the popularity of this president. Even his reactionary supporters smoke pot,” he added. “This should have been behind us 50 years ago, pot should be legal on a national level.”
BERNIE SANDERS SAYS:
Bernie Sanders shreds Sessions for anti-pot policy: Don’t treat marijuana like it’s heroin.
Opponents of legal marijuana celebrated the news that the DOJ will move against the drug.
“It’s pretty clear that the federal policy is going to be that US attorneys will have discretion and the industry can longer hide behind the Cole memo and stay they’re protected,” Kevin Sabet, who worked in Obama’s Office of National Drug Control Policy and now runs the anti-legalization group Smart Approaches to Marijuana told The Hill. “There is an unknown here because we don’t know how this is going to be implemented.”
In 2013, after voters in Colorado and Washington State voted to decriminalize marijuana for recreational use, the Justice Department deliberated about how to handle the contradictions between state and federal law.
The Obama administration decided not to sue such states, and the Justice Department issued a policy memorandum – the “Cole Memo” – to federal prosecutors to de-prioritize marijuana-related prosecutions in such states, unless it involved sales to children or gang-related activity.
Legalization has led to a booming marijuana business in some states, where wealthy growers and even hedge funds have invested millions of dollars in production and sales. Some industry analysts have estimated the North American cannabis market at $10 billion in annual sales.
In view of all of this ask yourself: Who benefits from prohibition of Cannabis?
KNOW ONE THING FOR SURE
The dark side entities HATE CANNABIS. Why?
1. It’s healing.
2. It’s productive.
3. It’s beneficial to the planet.
4. It’s economical to produce.
5. It’s a boost to the economy.
6. It could save our forests from being devastated for construction materials, clothes, paper, and so much more.
7. It doesn’t need pesticides to grow.
8. It grows almost anywhere.
9. It’s not addictive.
10. It can be spiritual.
11. It can be relaxing.
12. It helps mellow a person long enough not to hate their neighbor. So maybe it could prevent war.
The primary side effects are that you might get the munchies, and you might get a restful night’s sleep, you might feel better, and your physical pain might be reduced, but you won’t be a dangerous person on Cannabis and you won’t suddenly crave heroin. Cannabis should be used responsibly, meaning use it alone – without other drugs and without alcohol.
What’s important to know is that there has long been a conspiracy to keep this miracle plant out of the hands of people when our bodies are actually designed for this plant’s amazing properties. Introducing our Endocannabinoid System
As you read this review of the scientific literature regarding the therapeutic effects of cannabis and cannabinoids, one thing will become quickly evident: cannabis has a profound influence on the human body. This one herb and its variety of therapeutic compounds seem to affect every aspect of our bodies and minds. How is this possible?
At our integrative medical clinics in Maine and Massachusetts, my colleagues and I treat over 18,000 patients with a huge diversity of diseases and symptoms. In one day I might see cancer, Crohn’s disease, epilepsy, chronic pain, multiple sclerosis, insomnia, Tourette syndrome and eczema, just to name a few. All of these conditions have different causes, different physiologic states, and vastly different symptoms. The patients are old and young. Some are undergoing conventional therapy. Others are on a decidedly alternative path. Yet despite their differences, almost all of my patients would agree on one point: cannabis helps their condition.
Cannabinoids promote homeostasis at every level of biological life, from the sub-cellular, to the organism, and perhaps to the community and beyond.
Homeostasis is the tendency toward a relatively stable equilibrium between interdependent elements, especially as maintained by physiological processes. Homeostasis can be defined as the stable state of an organism and of its internal environment; as the maintenance or regulation of the stable condition, or its equilibrium; or simply as the balance of bodily functions.
