Obama Administration Willing to Work with Congress to Reschedule Cannabis, Says Attorney General
“We’d be more than glad to work with Congress if there is a desire to look at and reexamine how the drug is scheduled, as I said there is a great degree of expertise that exists in Congress,” said Holder. “It is something that ultimately Congress would have to change, and I think that our administration would be glad to work with Congress if such a proposal were made.”
This is the first time that the Obama administration has stated that they’d be willing to reschedule cannabis.
Currently cannabis is a Schedule 1 controlled substance, putting it alongside drugs such as heroin.
