The linchpin of cannabis’ federal status is its presence on Schedule 1, which is dangerous drugs with a high potential for abuse, no accepted medical use. There are two(?) other, less restrictive schedules, but to de-schedule cannabis would remove it from regulation and control.
What that would do is undercut all arguments for restrictive legislation. It becomes, essentially, just a plant. It would open the door releasing and expunging the records of cannabis-only felons, with or without restitution. It would mean the end of the war on weed, if we pushed it to that, and we could if we’re willing to bring pressure.
Does that help?
