After Months of Public and Legal Pressure, DEA Removes Marijuana Misinformation from Website

The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) has removed marijuana misinformation from their website following months of public and legal pressure.

After months of public pressure, and a legal request by the nonprofit medical cannabis advocacy group Americans for Safe Access, the DEA has removed factually inaccurate information about marijuana from their website.

As part of the legal request, Americans for Safe Access argued that there was over 25 incorrect statements on the DEA’s website about cannabis, which violates the Information Quality Act, which prohibits government agencies from providing false information to the public, and requires them to respond to requests for correction of information within 60 days.

“The DEA’s removal of these popular myths about cannabis from their website could mean the end of the Washington gridlock” said Steph Sherer, Executive Director of Americans for Safe Access. “This is a victory for medical cannabis patients across the nation, who rely on cannabis to treat serious illnesses. The federal government now admits that cannabis is not a gateway drug, and doesn’t cause long-term brain damage, or psychosis. While the fight to end stigma around cannabis is far from over, this is a big first step.”

    When I comment about cannabis, I always refer to the History Channel. They have a 2 hour documentary on all the ellegal activities from our Capital Washington DC and the false propaganda they put out to fool citizens into believing it was as dangerous as it counts get. And it is all lies to deny Black their civil rights in the early 20th century. It shouldn’t even be a law knowing all the crimes committed to make it against the law. Washington knows about the whole thing, but pass the bullcrap Baton from administration to administration. If Trump wishes to truly give America back in the hands of Americans, he should abolish the whole thing.
