Federally, marijuana is classified as a schedule 1 controlled substance. According to our Federal Government, that means that marijuana is considered to be highly dangerous, with no medicinal use, and a high potential for abuse leading to severe psychological or physical dependence. None these assertions are true for marijuana ! Marijuana is far safer than alcohol, and marijuana regulation in this country needs to be changed. I support legislation to reclassify Marijuana under federal law; taxation of marijuana sales would bring a windfall of government revenue and free law enforcement to work on more urgent priorities.
