Will the DEA Ever Rethink the Schedule I Classification of Cannabis?

This week the DEA rejected yet another bid to have marijuana reduced to a Schedule II drug under the Controlled Substances Act, which currently has the plant classified alongside the world's most dangerous and addictive substances such as cocaine, heroin, LSD, and ecstasy. Even many people who are against cannabis legalization are having a hard time understanding how the plant could possibly be classified as one of the worst drugs in existence, despite being widely available as a doctor-recommended medication in 25 states.

Assessing the Reasons for Sticking with Schedule I
To justify the rejection, the DEA has said that cannabis should remain a Schedule I drug for three reasons: it “has no currently accepted medical use” (although half the states, thousands of physicians, and millions of patients disagree), it has “lack of accepted safety for use under medical supervision” (kind of hard to argue when cannabis has a much higher LD-50 than Aspirin), and it has a high abuse potential (possibly, but it certainly doesn't have a higher abuse potential than opium, which is only considered Schedule II). Despite marijuana's villainous Schedule I status, the Justice Department doesn't seem to mind that anyone can purchase CBD cannabis seeds online, and CBD oil (extracted from hemp) can be legally sold and bought worldwide.
