Headline: Feb 07Judge Sides With Botanist on Pot Supply– DEA Administrative Law Judge recommends ending forty year old U. S. government policy of restricting research on medical marijuana to only marijuana grown by the government at the University of Mississippi. VideoDr. Rick Doblin, Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS), talks about his organization’s efforts to work with the U.S. government on serious medical cannabis research.

This is not the first time a DEA Administrative Judge has recommended change on the agency’s policy regarding Cannabis. Notable is the 1988 ruling by Judge Francis Young, DEA Judge, in a petition to reschedule marijuana. Finding that Cannabis was”one of the safest therapeutic agents known to man”, Judge Young recommended that marijuana be moved from Schedule One to Schedule Two of the Controlled Substances Act. The DEA ignored his recommendation.Marijuana Rescheduling Case ( DEA Judge ), by Arnold Trebach
