输入禁毒署（DEA），它将考虑更改“schedule”未来几个月内将吸食大麻。药物或物质的状态“scheduled” determines how punishing the consequences are when someone possess or distributes the drug or substance. The higher the 时间表, the more punishing it is for the offender.
In addition, the lower the 时间表, the easier it is for researchers to study the substance or drug and determine the beneficial or harmful effects of it.
目前，大麻是一种“Schedule I” substance, which means offenders are subject to the harshest punishments and researchers are limited in their ability to study it. Though it is unclear what the DEA could do with marijuana and how it will be rescheduled, it is a major breakthrough for the rescheduling to even be considered. Apparently the DEA have only rescheduled a 附表一 to a 附表一I five times.
减少大麻’s 时间表 would come a big change to the potential consequences for people awaiting their drug case to be heard.
